Newport News wildlife control tip of the month:

Groundhog Prevention Tips: How to Keep Groundhogs Away

Southern countries of the United States are the place digging rodents live and that is because they like warm climate. They can be a big Newport News animal control problem if they are found in a garden because they dig their burrows in search for insects and earthworms. They can also be found under houses or in the yard. Catching them can be very tricky to do because they will not eat anything put as bait. It is a waste of time trying to catch them that way, but nevertheless, you can catch them in a Newport News pest control trap.

When choosing a trap, one should have in mind that they are very strong and they will use full force to get out of it. The best lure for an digging rodent is a scent of another digging rodent. Groundhogs can have several burrows in a yard or a garden, so try to choose the one you think the animal is in when placing a Newport News animal trapping trap in front of it. Once you’ve caught an digging rodent into a trap, that trap can prove to be very effective next time because it has the scent of the caught animal. Fences can also help in trapping them if you put fence in the way they move making them go directly into the trap you placed. The reason for this is their poor eyesight and they will follow the fence all the way to the trap.

Once caught, you should check Newport News exterminator laws and regulations that refer to relocating the animals. When you relocate them, it should be a place at least five miles from your home. If relocation is illegal in your state, you have to call a local wildlife specialist to pick them up once you’ve caught them. There are several ways to keep digging rodents away from your yard or garden, like repellents. They can be chemical or natural. Predator scent can be very useful, so coyote urine is a good thing to use. Some argue whether this works, but there is no harm in trying it. Sprinkling Newport News wildlife removal flake form moth balls is another way of repelling them, but it is also arguable whether this works. One thing digging rodents can’t stand is castor oil. It is almost always used for a pest repellent and a good thing is that it is not harmful to plants. High pitched sounds are something digging rodents hate, so a sound machine can be useful also.
