How to catch GROUNDHOGS Woodchucks
This is going to be a serious discussion on catching groundhogs or woodchucks. they are the same. different name for same animal.
These guys are super destructive in the garden. We need to catch them.
OK I have 2 traps. One is a Havahart and the other is live trap by Safeguard. From what I can understand the Safeguard is a better trap than the Havahart.
The problem is finding a bait to get him to go into the trap.
I have at least 2 groundhogs in my garden probably more. I saw a big one and a little one. Looks like there has to be another big one that helped beget the little one. And they usually have more than one baby so I am in trouble.
So far NO LUCK catching them.
I have a neighbor about a mile away has a family in the garden. NO LUCK there for 3 weeks of trying to catch one. I saw the big boy waddling in the garden over there also. He is brazen. what a garden. he lives in heaven. The damage is extensive.
I have tried heads of lettuce. I have tried broccoli and apples still no luck. maybe my timing was off a bit.
WHAT IS THE IRRESISTABLE BAIT they can not avoid.
By the way. I had them last year and no luck last year. Lots of damage last year.
Here is the trap that I have.
