I really don’t get it. There are SOOOOOO many better-protected places for them in our general area besides the narrow strip of wooded land on the other side of our fence. Makes me wonder if they’re just vastly overpopulated in our vicinity due to lack of predators or something like that. Also weird that there’s no sign of any adult groundhogs in the area. (I mean, other than the existence of at least three juveniles…)
once they consider a place home it is very hard to get rid of them without killing them all.
they can climb and they can also squeeze through some very small spaces.
without a fence going down into the ground a ways they can likely be squeezing in some place under any fence.
i've put up fence to discourage them here, but i normally have to keep an eye out for them anyways and get the air rifle out to get rid of them.
it has helped but i don't think i'll ever get rid of them entirely because there is too much habitat for them, the other trouble is that i cannot completely enclose the gardens i'm trying to protect so they can come in from the far edges.
