For those of us who garden and live in the suburbs, which means where small animals live as well, keeping unprotected plants (especially vegetables) from being eaten can be a real challenge. There are few things more painful from a gardener’s point of view than coming outside and seeing a plant that has taken weeks to reach a decent size, chewed down to the ground. If can reduce the most well adjusted plant grower Termite Killer Sheffield Lake OH to a sobbing mass.

If you’re like me, you may dislike the little destructive critters but you still can’t bring yourself to harm them. After all, they’re not malicious, just hungry and opportunistic. So we try to find ways to repel these unwelcome beasts (which is unreliable at best) or we have to trap them.

In my neck of the woods, it’s mostly groundhogs that eat up everything they can reach with their stubby little legs. Sheffield Lake OH And boy can they eat fast. I once watched one of them prepare to attack a foot high broccoli plant from my kitchen window and by the time I got outside it was a skeleton. And once they’ve staked out your garden as their personal larder, you have only two choices: get rid of it or stop gardening.

For me, the only reliable way to get rid of one without resorting to killing it (which Termite Killer Sheffield Lake OH I’m not sure how I could accomplish anyhow without a gun or poison) is to use a live trap. The ones with a spring loaded door is held open with a catch, and that closes when an animal steps on a trigger inside on the trap’s inside. These traps allow you to catch a small animal without harming it so that it can be released. You put some food items in the trap and Sheffield Lake OH on the ground leading up to it in the area the animal frequents, then open, and set the door, and wait. Sooner or later the hungry critter will attempt to take advantage of this easy meal and get it trapped.

There are two problems however with trapping an animal this way. One is that it has to be released somewhere far enough from your property that it can’t get back to it. The other is Sheffield Lake OH that you can sometimes trap animals that you don’t want to.

I have managed to trap such unwanted animals as raccoons, opossums and skunks. In the case of these guys, it’s not worth the trouble as far as I’m concerned to transport them away from the house. They usually don’t pose any real problems for me, or for my garden. It’s just that it can be tricky, and in some cases even dangerous to try Sheffield Lake OH and release them.

For instance, opossums don’t want to leave. The second you go near a trapped one, it plays possum. And it can stay in the trap seemingly for hours. The only way to get one out is to prop the trap open near some place the opossum will feel safe moving into, like near some trees. If you use a long thin stick you can slide it just under the open door to Sheffield Lake OH keep it from re-closing. Eventually, the little strange looking guy will slowly wake himself up and wander away.

Raccoons are another story. They can be a bit more problematic to release. For one thing, they can be pretty vicious and make you a little nervous as you try to prop open the door to let them go. Plenty of them have growled at me in a threatening while doing this. Make sure you keep your Sheffield Lake OH hands clear of the cage. A couple of them have charged me as they’ve come out of the cage. For this reason, I keep a stick handy with which to bop them on the nose if necessary. This always turns them away. But, the biggest concern about raccoons is that they are sometimes rabid. If they show any signs of this or you’re not sure, it’s best to have someone from animal control take Sheffield Lake OH care of the animal.

But the most fun unintentional capture of all are skunks. There’s no need to tell anyone why these guys are the trickiest of all to release. They’re like little black and white striped packages of nitro glycerin, ready to go off with one wrong move. The way I release skunks is to slowly walk toward the cage holding a blanket up in front of me so it really can’t see me. Sheffield Lake OH I then drape the blanket (slowly) over the whole cage, except for the front. This allows me to (again, slowly) open the door and slide a stick through to prop it open. After a few minutes the skunk will leave. But if you’re unsure about your ability to do this, or you think the skunk may be sick, call a professional to take care of it.

There is a simple solution to avoiding the capture Sheffield Lake OH of animals you don’t want to. All three of the species caught are nocturnal. The groundhogs in my area are not. So, by closing the cage right before dark, I now avoid having to tiptoe and dance around raccoons and skunks that I’ve caught.
