Control of Woodchucks with Gas Cartridges
Woodchucks (Marmota monax), also known as whistle pigs, groundhogs, and even the vague moniker of “gopher”, are nature’s contractors. The effort they put into den building provides shelter for a variety of other ground dwelling animals, including skunks, fox, raccoon, and coyote.
With summer approaching, I thought visitors and members of my site would be interested in reading some tips about control of woodchucks with gas cartridges. I have provided those tips at a University of Nebraska-Lincoln website. Don’t forget, ALWAYS FOLLOW LABEL INSTRUCTIONS, AS THE LABEL IS THE LAW. Here is the link, Control of Woodchucks with Gas Cartridges.
I would love to hear about your stories and challenges with woodchuck control.
