Groundhogs do alot of damage. I remember when we use to have to 'deal' with them when I worked at the dairy farm. Cows used to walk in the holes the Groundhogs would dig and end up breaking their legs.

Glad you caught him.

Glad you caught it! thumbup

About the bees[if you'd risk it, considering you'r allergic]
just put a few drops of dish soap per cup of water in a spray bottle, and stir, not shake it... spray the bees a bit and they should die almost right away...something in the soap messes up their lungs and wings, or something... it's worked for me, but im not allergic... :nrevous:

Best of luck to you, and for getting that thing out before it starts to stink! shock lol

Yup, fill it and you might need to refill it again if things settle. Usually it is a tunnel with two entrances. Watch your ankles while searching for the other one.
