We don't have woodchucks but we have their annoying little cousins. We have Richardson's Ground Squirrels, ak gophers. The little beggars like making large holes and are hard to get rid of. We have one at the roundhouse that has started to undermined a corner of one building so I packed the hole as tight as I could with it's excavated dirt and put chicken wire around it. Then I found some broken bricks and put those in front of the wire, that should slow the little critter down. They are like a prairie dog and have large underground interconnecting burrows and can be hard to get rid of. We have almost 9 acres and they are welcome to live anywhere that isn't under a building.

Is it possible to trap the gophers? There are Hav A Heart traps that come in all sizes. I bet this has already been tried.

I would think they would be easier to live trap than moles, but then what would you do with a live gopher? Release it somewhere else, to damage someone else's property?

We occasionally catch mice in tiny Hav A Heart traps in our attic. Taking them to a wooded area far from houses and letting them go is an option. I don't know how crowded and built up it is where Mausey lives, maybe there are reasonable distance places to drop off gophers (if they could be caught).

My dad got these type of traps, you put qa bit of a cookie in the mouse goes in and becomes flat, rip, he can then head out a little and tosse out the dead one and reset the trap, place it for the next one, no handleing required good for his stress level, or those that don't want to handle live one, Hard plastic Family Dullard, also safer for he can't get hurt , for he is under a lot of medication,. blood thinners , and dibetic too, I am just explaining a different way,. to remove them.
