An Apple a Day...
I've tried bombing what I thought was its tunnel. Guess not, as the little bugger was back chowing down 20 minutes after bombing. I've tried blocking off it's access under the shed, but it just dug over, under or around whatever I put in front of it. So I baited a box trap last night with a sliced apple and, this morning as I was harvesting some of my fingerling potatoes, I heard a clink. It was an expensive breakfast for this fella. He was excised from the farm this morning.
I sure hope this makes a difference in egg production. And I hope this groundhog was an only child.
