How to Trap a Groundhog
When you had decided on the Tennessee groundhog trap, you should also consider the bait so that you can position it
well so that the groundhog may be ruled inside. The best bait to use when it comes to baiting the groundhog
is to use the foods that it normal steals away from the garden. If you are not aware of what it is, you should
choose the sweet fruits and green plant but you have to make sure that you have a nutrient-rich and ripe food and
the vegetable to use like bait. Some of the foods to use are vanilla extracts, peaches, lettuce, peas, strawberries,
fresh string beans, sweet corns and cantaloupe. Regardless of the bait that you want to choose, it has to be properly
positioned in the trap so that it may lead to the successful catch.
The cantaloupe is known to be the best bait to attract the Tennessee groundhogs. When you know where the groundhog lives, you
should put the bait at its entrance and then position the bait at least 3 feet away from the burrow. You have to avoid
putting your scent on the trap by wearing the gloves while handling the baiting or handling the trap. The Knoxville groundhogs will
avoid the humans and it can avoid the trap if it has your scent.
When it comes to trapping the groundhog, there are the additional steps that have to be considered and this includes the
trap placement with the animal relocation. So far as the Tennessee wild animals are concerned, we all are not comfortable to have them
at home as neither a pet nor we want them near about us anyway. This is just because of many common reasons. When you have already
got the groundhog, you should use the repellant in order to stop it against coming back in your Knoxville place. When you combine the traps
with the repellents, it will give you the best protection that you will need to ensure that your property does not have any intruder.
The animal repellents are found in different granular and liquid. The Knoxville groundhogs are normally wary by nature and it is hard for
them to enter in the place that they consider to be unnatural. You may camouflage a trap and make it to be even more inviting when
you use the natural cover elements such as grass, leaves, brush, dirt, branches and twigs.
