When I was a kid, my dad would find their holes (many times several are connected), pour a little water down first (so the gas would run down farther), then some gasoline, and cover all but one with dirt. The last one he would throw a match in. Most just made a big fireball from the open hole and that was it. He never did this near any buildings.
There was one day, though, when we found 6 holes within 50 or 60 feet. He doped them all up and threw the match in the last hole.
The ground shook like an earthquake and dirt flew in all directions.
That was pretty cool for a kid.
Not sure what this means.......... forgot them where? Perhaps you can go get them?I forgot my shot gun so I have to try something else. I also forgot my trap
I used a very small two wire electric fence -- one just above the grass and one at around 20" (set up outside the 28"H rabbit fence) to keep the groundHOG away from my dwarf apple tree. I DID NOT KNOW groundHOG would climb the low branched tree to steal the apples.Arriga wrote:Will an electric fence keep them out?

Ground hogs are easy to catch you just have to set the trap in the opening of their den and cover it with burlap then a light coating of dirt. They will walk right out and not notice it is a trap.
I set the trap right before a major storm hit last night just after sundown, so I didn't get the chance to cover, etc., but LOOK WHAT I FOUND THIS MORNING SOON AFTER SUNRISE !
Ha! I was looking at the photo and noticed it ate BOTH wedges of cantaloupe that were in there.
