What are some ways to kill a groundhog in the yard?

The first method to use is to fumigate the burrows of the Michigan groundhogs. The groundhogs go for hibernation in the end of September and in the first days of October and their chambers will be walled off and this means that it will not be possible to fumigate during this period. Learn all the entrance of the burrow and put the pre-cut sod behind each one of them. Place the cartridge in borrow but without throwing it away and push it as far as you can. Put the pre-cut sod on the hole and make sure that they are air tight and wait for some minutes and close other entrance.

The lethal traps are used to kill the Michigan groundhogs but it can be inhumane since the traps do not kill at once. It is also hard to know where the trap has to be put. Each lethal trap is different so you should follow the instructions careful.

Poisoning the Michigan groundhogs poses the treat as the fumigation and the traps. The poison may pose danger to the people and to the pets and the carcass will be hard to get rid of. If you have decided to poison them, you should put the poison in the place where the Michigan groundhogs frequent.

You can shoot the groundhogs but this is the option that it is viable if you are living in the remote area and you are a good shooter. When a Michigan groundhog is shot and it is not killed right away, it can be aggressive and dangerous compared to its normal behavior So far as the Michigan 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. Many people may choose to look for the alternative to kill the groundhogs and one among these reasons is that having to kill the groundhog will only offer a temporary solution. Where the Michigan groundhog has passed to come into your home, it is possible that others will come also. The best way to deal with the groundhogs is to make sure that your home is secure so that you do not get the groundhogs in your Michigan home once again. You have also to seal all the cavities around your home since the groundhogs can use them as their new home.
