Ground Hogs

Hi everyone!! I just wanted to tell you all that mom has been researching how to get rid of groundhogs.

As it seems we have a family of them living under our house and a few back under our shed and mom is afraid I am going to get them. But apparently the only ways she has found to get rid of them is either gonna cost her over $300 for the first one and then $75-125 per each additional one. Or her other option is to put watermelon flavored bubbleishish bubble gum at the entrance to their homes. Which they apparently LOVE but is fatal to them. Mom don't have the money to pay to have them removed which even if she did they by PA State law would have to be euthanized immediately. An she refuses to feed it bubble gum.

So my question is do any of you have any humane suggestions for ridding your home of these creatures without killing them or sucking MY money from moms wallet??

Can you buy your own "humane" traps, then go release them in the woods while no one is looking?
The only other thing I can think of is to post "No Groundhogs Allowed" signs.

I have no idea, but I would think that if you got outside, you could take care of them in no time!

That really sucks. Maybe she could put some of your poo when they are and they will get scared and leave, just from the smell.

Gee, that sounds like a problem. We hope someone can help you out with an affordable and humane answer.

Good luck!

We think both the AO4 & Holly's ideas are worth a try. If you decide to try the humane trap idea, you might want to talk to your local animal control to see if they have a trap they can loan you before you got buy one. Good Luck!
