Pretty much every time I go into the garden I see the holes dug by hungry big cute rodents. They’re turning over all that turf that I carefully dug and up-ended to “self-compost” under the wood chip mulch. And seemingly throwing around the edging bricks. They’re heavy!
But with at least four of them, it does explain how they can make so much mess.
They know their way around the territory.
Giving me “the glare”–you’d think I’d taught them!
Anyone else having the same problem? Anyone have any suggestions? I don’t want to do them any harm, just protect my labour investment.
CAYENNE POWDER !!!
Go to the bulk section and buy lots! Sprinkle everywhere that you have seen them. This may only work until the next rain……….. Put some on the RAMP to the shed. Also sprinkle heavily around the shed OR where you think they may be living???
[also check your spelling; “I didn’t really thing about the entire family” ].
Oops, thanks for the spell check 🙂 I’ve read about cayenne, but didn’t really believe it. I’ll try.
When we laid turf in the backyard, Steve used tent pegs to hold down the edges after the raccoons started lifting the edges, looking for bugs.
Wow, tent pegs! Haven’t heard of that.
