So You Want To Get Rid Of Groundhogs? - CALL OMEGA!

As an alternative to conventional animal trapping, Omega uses a humane way of controlling groundhogs through the use of repellants. Repellents are a great way to control many different nuisance animals from your property. Repellents will control not only groundhogs but also moles, voles and deer. The way repellents work is:

  1. Omega will apply the natural repellent which is made from all organic ingredients to the area that you want to protect.

  2. The repellent will create a barrier working with the animals keen sense of smell. The repellent uses their keen senses against them by producing an order that is repugnant to the groundhog.

  3. This repugnant odor IS NOT an order that humans, dogs, or cats can smell.

  4. Because the groundhog does not like smell of the repellent it will relocate to area where there is no repellent.  

  5. This all done without harming the groundhog, your pets, your children or the environment.

  6. The OMEGA repellent service removes unwanted nuisance animals from your yard safely and effectively without harmful chemicals.

5 Natural Do-It-Yourself Ways To Get Rid of Groundhogs

  1. Epsom salts sprinkled near or around the burrow entrances or exits will keep the groundhog away. If your plants are being eaten, try placing a tin pie plate filled with the salts near the plants. Replace after a rain.

  2. Castor oil poured in and around the burrow holes can be an effective way to discourage them (they hate the smell) but apply only when you know they’re not there, otherwise they’ll just stay burrowed. You’ll have to keep vigil to see when they head out to find food.

  3. Human hair clippings from your local barber or hair dresser can also work well because they dislike the scent of humans. Sprinkle clippings around areas where the groundhog frequents. Or to avoid it blowing away in the wind, place clippings in a fine mesh bag and secure it to a stake near the groundhog’s dwelling.

  4. Soiled kitty litter poured around one of the den holes (but not the other) is also effective as it smells like predator. Leaving one exit hole scent free allows them to escape rather than stay burrowed.

  5. Offensive Scents: There are certain smells groundhogs absolutely detest. If you can ensure these smells are present near their burrows and around the garden, you may be able to send them packing:

  6. Cayenne pepper – Simply pour cayenne pepper close to the groundhog’s holes. Buy a large container (bulk size) so you can create a small pile. When it rains, or is windy, you’ll have to reapply. It’s actually the smell and the heat they don’t like. You can also spray tender plants with a mixture of 2 teaspoons cayenne with 1 quart water to deter them from nibbling.

  7. Garlic – Crush some garlic cloves and spread the paste around areas of the garden you want groundhogs to avoid. Their sensitive noses can’t handle the pungent smell.

  8. Lavender – Try planting some lavender around the garden. While it smells lovely to us, groundhogs find it offensive and avoid the areas where it is. They also dislike the smell of these herbs: basil, chives, lemon balm, mint, sage, thyme, rosemary, and oregano.
