Bolingbrook Wildlife Trapper Tip of the Month:
For gardeners and farmers, groundhogs are a real threat as they chew the green grass and crops. There are four signs that indicate damages done by groundhogs. Bite marks and hollowed outcrops indicate the presence of groundhogs. If you find your fruit trees being chewed from the side, this means there are groundhogs. Groundhogs can eat underground power cables and can chew wiring of your car. Groundhogs can also harm pastures and fields, by churning the ground and potentially damaging farm equipment.
How to get rid of groundhogs?
The fence is the best way to prevent groundhogs from entering your garden. You can make a fence with the help of wood or metal. But keep these things in mind while making the fence Wall should be at least 2 feet deep into the ground The fence should not be entirely straight; it must have a curve to make it difficult for groundhogs to climb on it. Slats of wood or holes between metal wiring should be no larger than three inches.
Vibration in the ground
These animals don't like vibration, and they will leave the place if it is shaking. Lawn windmills, spinning wheels, or sonic vibrating devices can be placed on the opening of the burrows; these devices will deter groundhogs.
Smoke Them Out
Fumigation kills the groundhog while it is inside the burrow. The easiest way is to buy gas cartridges (also known as gas bombs). They are usually sold at garden centers or can be found online. Make sure the groundhog is inside the hole before fumigating. This may take a bit of time for observation. Once you're sure the groundhog is inside, fill all of the entrances except one. Then light the gas cartridge, throw it into the open entrance, and quickly fill it up with dirt to trap the groundhog and the carbon monoxide inside.
Some people also run a hose from their car's exhaust and release the fumes into the groundhog's hole. Again, be sure to block all of the holes. Both of these methods will kill the groundhog or make him run for miles if he finds a way out.
Garlic and pepper
Groundhogs hate the smell of garlic and pepper. To deter them from ever returning to your garden, crush some garlic and pepper and throw it into their burrows. Do this day after day until they flee.
You can also make garlic and pepper spray to spray your vegetables. Woodchucks will not touch a single thing that smells pungent or spicy. For added protection, scatter the crushed garlic and pepper around your garden to prevent them from entering.
Dog or cat
If you don't have a pet, you must think about adopting one. Dogs and cats are real threat to groundhogs as they are considered predators. Groundhogs will leave that place where they sense a dog or a cat. If you don't want to adopt a cat or dog, you can also use the urine of these animals, sprinkle urine and place the hairs of cats or dogs in your garden, and they will leave that place.
