Disrupting the Groundhogs

Groundhogs are taking taking over our yard, especially the strip of lawn between us and our neighbor in the front. We’ve been told that professional exterminators are expensive, so I thought I’d try digging down about 3 inches in order to disrupt the entry to their tunnels. Maybe they’ll get the idea they’re no longer welcome and find somewhere else to burrow.
The yard will look a bit torn up for awhile, but I see it as only a first step.
Next step: Rodenticide, blocks of which I’ll shove into the their holes. If anything, it’s good exercise.
