Dealing with Underground Critters

One of the things I enjoy greatly about living in Central Connecticut is the wildlife that you see at any time of day as you drive around town.  In open fields along Route 10 one often spots groundhogs, black squirrels, and even an occassional pheasant! Always puts a smile on my face. However, when groundhogs show up in my own yard, I can't say the smile lasts too long.  I often hear people say that the humane ways of getting rid of them don't work well, but I seem to have had some success with fox urine hanging in my trees and shrubs in the back yard--I've noticed fewer squirrels in the back yard too--and I had a large population of those prior to trying this treatment. Now I just wish the moles would take the fox threat seriously!  The funny thing is that I do also have foxes living in our area, but the groundhogs don't seem to feel too threatened by them!
