Answer: Those brazen rodents! If it's not woodchucks or gophers, it's muskrats! I've never heard of this problem before, but I do have some suggestions. You can try coyote or fox scent (available from Burpee) as a repellent. I don't know which would be better, but the Virginia Department of Forests and Wildlife, maybe even the local game warden, should be able to tell you, and may have other suggestions as well. I know blood meal sprinkled on plants sometimes deters woodchucks. Dog hair obtained from a pet groomer and used as mulch may also give them second thoughts. I hope you soon find a solution!
