Correspondingly, what do groundhogs like to eat and drink?
Groundhogs are primarily herbivores and rely on typical garden crops; however, they will sometimes feed on some insects and worms: Greens like lettuce, alfalfa, clovers, dandelions, daisies, red mulberry and hackberry leaves.
Secondly, do Groundhogs eat bugs? Mostly herbivorous, groundhogs eat primarily wild grasses and other vegetation, including berries and agricultural crops, when available. Groundhogs also occasionally eat grubs, grasshoppers, insects, snails and other small animals, but are not as omnivorous as many other Sciuridae.
Simply so, what is the best bait to catch a groundhog?
In Havahart® field tests, cantaloupe was the best bait for attracting groundhogs and woodchucks. Cut cantaloupe into 2" cubes, and rub the cantaloupe juice and rind throughout the inside and outside of the trap. Set the trap with some of the fruit in the position indicated above.
What are groundhogs scared of?
Groundhogs do not like people, and sometimes the smell of humans is enough to scare them away. You can sprinkle human hair or throw old clothes and shoes around the garden as repellents.
