just thought i'd share a quick tip that we sort of just stumbled on. we planted our veggie garden and like 2 days later one of my pepper plants was pushed up and there were 4 or 5 mounds in and around the garden. we could still see the mound moving where the pepper was so it had just been done, so luckily we were able to replant the pepper in time to save it. so hubby carefull moved the dirt away with a trowel until he uncovered the hole. we debated what we should do because we knew if we filled in the hole it would just make a new one and push something else up. he suggested flooding it but i said no >.<<br>
so we did the only thing we could think of, we uncovered all the holes (do this very carefully with the flat side of the trowel an inch at a time, or you could injur one of the critters if it happens to be there), collected some dog fur from one of the furkids who sheds the most, and stuffed some in each hole and then re-covered them. it's been a week and we have seen no signs of them! it was just kind of a wild shot in the dark that maybe the scent of dog near/in their burrows would make them pack up and move, and so far it seems like it's worked!

Cool! Glad you found a humane solution to get them to leave! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
