    Putting lye in the burrows (about a tablespoon full) usually does the job. And, as it migrates through the surrounding soil, it turns into harmless by-products. When using lye, remember that it is caustic. Be sure to wear hand and eye protection and protective clothing. Lye is used in making homemade soap and may be available where soap-making supplies are sold. It's readily available online.

    I love that the question comes from Kentucy and the response comes from Jamaica, New York. I would love to know how Hillela came to know about crawdad holes. I just love Hometalk!

  • Well I would be trapping and cooking some up for dinner . . . But I understand not wanting them around too.
