The walkways in my hoop-house are 80-90% concrete, but some woodchucks got in last week, where the floor is still dirt, under a door, and devastated some crops. First thing I did was put some electric fence wire near the burrow. Activity stopped. Then I bought a game camera (which sees really good in darkness).

Watching this frame-by-frame in MovieMaker is interesting... he takes it on the upper lip, then his mouth opens, then he thinks about it for 1.4 seconds, then he retreats !

Critters devastated muskmelons. Critters only picked on the ripe melons. Son purchased a live trap. Put pieces of ruined melons in trip. Three groundhogs, one possum and one skunk trapped and removed. Live trap has been sitting on some hay bales for weeks airing out from the skunk.
I have an excuse. CRS.
