    A ground hog will burrow under any fence..you are going to have to use another deterrent.

    I agree. What about investing in the ground spikes that send out a minor electrical current? I do not know if those are safe if you have other animals or pets. Another idea is a chemical deterrent spike. You might ask in the garden department at you local home improvement store or even consulting the county extension service for some non-toxic ideas. Good luck!

    They burrow, so won't help. Check with your extension agency for live traps to trap them and take them away.
