If a Woodchuck Would Chuck Wood

by Kay~Kacey on 7/20/2010

instead of my plants!!

groundhog-7910

This stinkin’ groundhog is eating all of my plants!

groundhog-7919

He is stripping them bare, the little stinker.

groundhog-7912

Here he is munching on my lavender! Get. Out. Of. My. Lavender!!

groundhog-7918

My poor little flowers. Gone, all gone. Except for…

groundhog-7914

This handful of blooms that SuperGuy was able to save for me.

Anyone want a woodchuck? I’ve got one I’m willing to part with…

Hate to tell you, but this woodchuck will probably produce a litter of six more and they like to set up housekeeping in the same vicinity! Get rid of it sooner, rather than later! There are sprays at your local nursery/hardware store that will help (RepelsAll by Bonide). We finally had to give up our vegetable garden. You could get a slingshot and try “shooting” the little bugger with something other than a camera……

SuperGuy got some kind of spray repellent the nursery suggested…though they kept insisting it was “only rabbits”. I’m like, um, NO! I want him gone!!

My solution to our groundhog problem was to let him get hit by a car…which I posted about just a bit ago. I have to say I was not sad to see him go. Good luck of ridding yours!

I have a friend who shoots them from her bedroom window when she sees them outside. So far she’s killed three on her property since she got her new shotgun for her birthday this year.
We’ve gotten rid of the family who set up here at our place by pouring dirty kitty litter down every single one of their holes. I haven’t seen them around this year.

Thanks for the offer, but no thanks. Last year I relocated a family of five from under my porch.

I’d get a live trap and try to catch him and take him/her somewhere and release.

It’s much more important to fee you and the woodchuck’s family.

We’ve had a mole problem. Killed the grubs and he left, but he returned. He worked on the pumpkin plants and killed both of them.

Oh my! At least he is cuter than by tomato horn worms! Seriously though, it is such a pain to have some critter destroying your plants.
