About Pest Animal Removal Bakersfield and Our Services:
Are you having a California Groundhog Day in your garden every day? If so, then you probably understand why some people consider them as their least favorite rodent. Some of them will even prefer a skunk invasion rather than groundhog infestation. This is probably due to the destructive behavior of this nuisance creature. They have a voracious appetite that can decimate your entire garden in just a few minutes.
Controlling and Preventing the Damages of Groundhogs
The groundhog may appear like an adorable furry Bakersfield creature. However, the damage that they can cause is far from being adorable. They can create patches of holes all over your yard and will destroy your plants. Fortunately, there are simple ways on how you can eliminate them under your porch. Here are some of them
Using Box Trap
For those who are looking for a humane method to get rid of them, trapping would be an excellent option. You can capture them without harming them and then release them in a place where they will not cause harm. While they will usually be passive and will flee in the presence of danger, they will also attack if they feel like they are being threatened. You will have to wear heavy duty gloves to protect yourself from their bites. Wearing gloves will also prevent your scent from transferring on the trap and will increase the probability of capturing them. Be sure that you will consider the proper placement of the trap and the use of bait. Regularly check on the box trap. Trapped groundhog s can die from starvation or dehydration if ignored for a long period.
Asking the Help of your Cats or Dogs
If your California cats or dogs can fit inside the space under your porch, this is a great way to chase them away from your property. It may be true that the tunneling system of the groundhogs is too complex and has many entry points that allow them to escape their predators. However, once this creature realize that it won' t be able to live under your shed in peace, then it will possibly move and look for a more comfortable location.
After removing them under your porch, fill up the holes with stones before covering them with dirt. After this, you have to make sure that they will never return again. A good way to ensure this is by installing barriers and fences. Due to their digging habit, the fences should be buried at least 2 ft below the ground. It should also be 3 ft in height that will prevent the groundhog s from jumping over. For your plants, you can cover it with chicken wires of hardware cloth.
We do not recommend you to use Bakersfield repellents such as mothballs since they will not work against the California groundhog s. Ammonia on the other hand can cause a detrimental effect on your health. The methods we mentioned above carries little risk and will not require expertise to conduct.
