The wildlife "exterminator" called them traps but they are black enclosed boxes with rat snap traps inside. 8 set around where the most activity and dens are....then they come back next week and replace or move empty ones and then take them away the week after -- all for $295. They said it would not be good for me to just put out rat snap traps as anything could get caught in them and I could just imagaine a woodchuck with a rat trap attached to his foot.
Wish I could do the water in the bucket thing but not with all the woodchucks around here. Just don't want them in the house or under the hood of my car and can't afford more trapping/baiting professionally.
If you think of anything more I can do......My neighbors on both sides of me have gigantic bird feeders out and are actually annoyed that I asked them to take them down for a while at least.
