Squirrels....

Digging holes all over my newly overseeded lawn...tearing it up. I searched but I guess there’s nothing you can do short of trapping or a 22...

My son borrowed the neighbors Havahart trap and put in a baby carrot. I told him I didn't think it would work. He caught two that way. And a few chipmunks.

I have squirrels and chipmunks tearing mine up. Going to try bait blocks near where they keep digging holes.
