|'Our' groundhog climbing a 3" diameter hackberry tree in one of our gardens.|
My first approach was to use used cat litter and sudsy ammonia to stink up the burrows. I think this was only slightly annoying and after a short time the ground hog returned. Right now I am trying a castor oil solution. This seems to be longer lasting, but I will need to keep up the treatments for a while longer to encourage a permanent move away from my garden. In addition to using repellents in and around its burrows, I did complete a buried fence around the vegetable garden. Hopefully this will remove another attraction from the area.
