We have a woodchuck that has made our dirtfloor she'd his home. He will come out and sun himself during the days and tantalize our 9 lb yorky and is tearing up my flower beds. I've tried live trapping him with different vegis to no success,please help!!

    They make humane traps for critters like this. Call your local wilflife/animal control people for advice about relocating your pest.

    Hey Tammy: Yes, I laughed, but it's not funny to you:) What you can do is maybe leave the door open and spray the floor with vinegar. He may like the security of a closed door. Did he make a hole in the floor? If so, when he comes out to enjoy the weather, run a hose down the hole and fill it with water and maybe some vinegar. Perhaps a portable radio with some mood music and a light pointed at the floor may convince him that you are lousy landlords. Good luck.
