I LOVE wildlife in the garden....my yard is even a certified backyard wildlife habitat. However, I am concerned that a woodchuck that became very comfortable in the yard last year very likely took up residence under my deck and is still there--I cannot see under the low deck well enough to verify. I've seen the multiple burroughs just one woodchuck can create and am concerned that his activity may undermine the structure of the deck. I tried to live trap him to locate him to a more suitable home, but he was too slick for that; he even used the trap as a leaning aid as he ate the flowers beside it! Although I thought he was very cute as he peeked out from under the deck steps each day deciding which area of the garden he was going to feast on, does anyone have any non-lethal ideas as to how I can encourage him to move on if he is still here under the deck in the spring?
