Cuyahoga Falls wildlife control tip of the month:
How to Kill a Groundhog
When everything else fails, people turn to violent Cuyahoga Falls pest control measures. Often they get very frustrated when nothing
works, so they take a gun and start shooting them. That can prove to be effective, but there are of course
risks involved. And there is a problem of dealing with carcasses afterwards. Poisoning and lethal traps have
the same problem and they are illegal in many countries. One should really think before going to such drastic
measures. Lethal Cuyahoga Falls animal control traps are efficient, but they can prove to be too efficient. Body grip traps kill anything that
steps into them, so they are not always practical.
The same thing goes for Cuyahoga Falls wildlife removal poisons. Poisons do kill groundhogs,
but a person using them should be aware that the poison they place in their garden to kill groundhogs may as well
end up on their table afterwards. So it is not a very intelligent way of dealing with the problem. If you poison a
groundhog, it will most probably die in the burrow, so it can be very difficult to get rid of the carcass after it
is done. Also, the smell of a dead groundhog can attract other animals, so your problem doubles. Regulations should
be checked before killing a groundhog because they can sometimes be carriers of diseases and you should check what
exactly you should do with the carcass.
Either way, killing a groundhog is only a temporary solution. If a groundhog found a home on your land, there is a
big probability others will follow him. So the problem is here again. Alternatives like prevention or live trapping
are better. Prevention includes fences, which should be placed in a correct manner. Fence should be buried at least
18 inches and be 3 feet high to work. That would be a permanent Cuyahoga Falls animal trapping solution. If you do not like fences, you should consider
live trapping. It is a more humane solution and the risks like poisoning yourself or other creatures are excluded.
Trapping takes some time and patience, but is effective. When you get rid of the groundhog, it is imperative to seal
their burrows because an empty burrow is an invitation for a new tenant. So the conclusion would be that violence is
not the best solution to groundhog problem. It can create more problems than it solves. One should never lose his or
hers head when dealing with this problem, there is always a better Cuyahoga Falls exterminator solution.
