Ground Hog Problem

Faith HeidelElizabeth Bowen-droneburgKMS Woodworks


We have a ground hog that seems to have made a home under our pool house. The pool house is set on stones and every morning the stones are kicked out. Don't know how to get him out of there.

    I had a client who had a raccoon getting under his porch...we ended up using some moth balls. ( this is an "off label" use and is considered illegal in many places.). Another trick is to get an old t-shirt rag and put a few knots in it, then douse it with some ammonia and toss it in there. The smell will drive them out. Once they vacate seal up the space with some wire mesh (hardware cloth) or some more stone (concrete blocks)

    A friend of mine had one living in the upper part of her garage. She played a radio, pretty loudly, right next to where she thought it was, put mothballs around, and in a few days, the critter left.

    Thanks for your help, I'm sure the mesh will help as long as he's outta there when we put it up!
