I don't want to hurt the GH, just make him move away. Anything to make it less attractive.I don't have a dog anymore and that seems to be an invitation to move in.

Fox piss... you can get it in the hunting section of the sporting good store... The fox is a natural predator of the ground hog, he will just leave...

Groundhog, right? Woodchuck.

What's it hurting? I had one living in my back yard, and yeah they like it under porches for shelter but usually have a burrow off a ways. Had two babies last year. Cuties. Haven't seen a peep of them this year.

My advice: leave'em be.

How is he affecting your life, op? Is he harming you? I'm just asking because I don't know.
If he's not hurting you or your kids, what's the problem?

... I for sure agree, leave 'em be... however, lol, if ya really can't handle that one, and for whatever reason... that ol' Fox piss will work really well too. Or, ya might try a simple smoke bomb, or maybe just toss some moth balls under your porch. Gooder luck.

Adopt bleeding-heart, liberal policies and try to 'reason' with the groundhog. Treat the groundhog with 'respect' and ask Hillary or O'Bama to intercede for you, to pay off the groundhog, so it will leave happy, in exchange for its vote next election.

Use a have a heart trap with romane lettuce in it for bait, don't worry if the lettuce wilts he will still eat it.
After you catch him drive him a few miles away and let him loose. may take a few days, but I have cought many this way.
you can get the trap at home depot or Lowes

And you drive away probably not thinking about or even caring that you have just suicided the critter.

They are very territorial and live in burrows. Being "dropped off" in another territory with no shelter is a death warrant. But that probably doesn't mean much to you, you just rid of the vermin without having to feel bad.

Better to just put the trap by the tailpipe of a vehicle and drape a tarp or plastic over it to contain the fumes, "relocating" burrowing animals is inhumane and will cause cause a slow and lingering death.

hunting store or farmer's store/co-op Agway etc.

p.s. I'd just leave it alone - you'd have to piss it off to have it do anything to you. they're vegetarians. Just don't leave your garbage out.

So let me guess you would do nothing and let the animal totally destroy your yard? Its a damn animal it knows how to survive. Im sure they don't stay in one area their whole life and probally move around.

I see ground hogs all the time where i live, they have holes along the road and pop their heads out and watch the traffic go by usually while munching away at something. I would say if it wasnt by your house and in the yard i would leave it alone.
They usually don't attack people unless messed with like most animals.

Usually groundhogs have more then one hole and would probally escape, thus you wasting gas which is not cheap anymore.

Set a fake Owl out there on the ground, you will never see him again. This will also run off many other rodents-- but will also drive off pretty birds.

Re: I have a groundhog under my front porch. How do I get rid of him?
look for a 'have-a-heart' trap

these are humane and allow you to transposrt the animal for release in a new area

although these guys aren't vicious, you don't want wild animals in close proximity, you are making the right move

most wildlife rehabilitators will have one and provide you with instructions and may even assist you...

for you folks who say just leave it alone, there is alweays a chance these guys could carry rabies and most certainly ticks and fleas. i know I wouldn't want to be bitten by one, in the off chance

Ammonia soaked rags in the hole. Try one, then maybe two.

Chili Powder sprinkled around the hole and area. Use the whole can. Moth crystals, maybe just a handful for starters.

Napalm.

Eat a whole bunch of asparagus and sauerkraut.

Drink a gallon of water and three or four beers.

Piss in his hole (or if you are shy in an old ice cream pail and pour in hole).

Problem solved and you didn't spend that much money to fix the problem.

I still don't understand the danger of having a groundhog under your front porch. Am I missing something? Why not just let the poor thing be? We've already taken up it's home. I DON'T FUCKING GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!! I've got a zillion lizards on AND below my porch. I'm not out to kill them. I know a groundhog is not a lizard but I'll bet you 50 bucks neither one of them wants to do harm to people.
