The Q&A Archives: Groundhogs

Question: Do you give advice on how to protect my vegetable garden from groundhogs?
Thanks, Joy Cass

Answer: Groundhogs can be very destructive to the garden and are also unpredictable, wild and potentially very dangerous animals. (Their bites are horrible.) The best way to keep them out of the garden is by a wire mesh fence running several feet above ground and buried around the perimeter as well. While they can sometimes be trapped and removed from an area, I'd suggest professional help with this project. Best wishes with your garden!
