82. What is Digging in Your Garden?

When you find small holes and burrows in your garden, it is sometimes difficult to figure out what type of critter you actually have, so that you can fight it effectively. These little holes can often lead to your bulbs, your freshly planted flowers or to a patch of worms! Some of the types of animals you may find digging in your garden are the squirrels, skunks, armadillos, moles, rabbits, gophers, and chipmunks to name just a few. Here we are going to discuss a little more in detail about how to know what each is looking for and methods on how to rid your garden of these animals.

In talking about moles, they can be very destructive to your gardens. They wonít burrow that deep into your garden, but they will work their way all around your garden area. To keep moles from getting in to your garden and destroying all of your hard work you only have to dig about six inches down and install a Ďfence undergroundí to keep moles out. They wonít burrow deeper than three to four inches and you use a fence about six inches underground you will be protecting your garden from these little pests.

If you have skunks or armadillos digging in your garden you really donít have to worry much, they are not digging to get at your bulbs or your plant roots, but they are trying to get after slugs, snails, and grubs in your garden, which could be a helpful control for this other pest! After the number of slimy creatures in your garden is controlled the skunks and the armadillos will not bother your any more.

If you are having a problem with ground hogs or gophers, it is very difficult to get rid of them. You can try plugging up their holes, but often they will dig it back out. You can try flooding them out continuously, and as they get tired of this they may move on. Some gardeners try to use mothballs. Keeping the ground wet deters the ground hog or the gopher from returning, as wet soil is not good to dig in. One last defense is that because the gophers and ground hogs like high tall grasses and weeds, keep your grasses and weeds cut short. I havenít really come across a full proof method for getting rid of ground hogs or gophers yet, but by using a combination of the solutions listed hopefully you will get rid of your problems.

Squirrels are different story. If you live near a wooded area, you are going to have problems with squirrels because they are often after your precious roots. You can try using covering of some type over your garden to make the squirrels Ďforgetí about your garden and then you can uncover the garden when you think the squirrels have given up. You could get a couple of cats to scare away the squirrels, or even dog sometimes does the trick! Another solution that I have heard is placing marigolds around the exterior of your garden, but this may not deter the needy squirrel.

Of course there is always the methods of trapping animals and relocating them to other areas, you can find more about live traps online using your search engine and the words trapping small animals.
