Put up an owl house and hope one moves in, blood meal will deter a lot of animals.

Just tie a very big dog there.. He will get rid of them.. Plus you won't have to feed him..LOL.. No man I was just joking..You don't want to do that.. I'm not sure..We don't have that problem..Just Gator's, snakes,Raccoons, And everything else.. No groundhogs.. Maybe all the Gators we have is eating all of ours. Or maybe it some of these Coona**'s around here..

Argon from your welder will do it, doesn't take much to fill a hole like that either.

WRT to stopping them from going there in the first place... funny how when we rescued a rottie/lab/something furry mix all the wildlife in the yard vacated within a couple of days... She's gone 8' up into a tree after a squirrel and 3' under the front bushes after something else, she caught a fox because it was hanging out next to 'her' truck Not much gets past her and just about everything out there is afraid of her... a while back she "said" something to one of the neighbor's german shepherds and he won't even walk across in front of our house anymore, it's actually kind of funny, they'll be walking along the sidewalk or down the street and the shepherd gets to the property line, stops and won't go any farther.

My father in law had a problem with a ground hog digging a condo under the base of his deck, we were up there earlier in the year helping with something and brought the dog with us. She decided that the cool shady spot under the deck stairs (where the groundhog was digging) was the best spot in the yard to hang out... We didn't see what happened, but supposedly the ground hog hasn't been back for months now.

Sorry old gal,,,bang!!

This reminds me, I was asking someone about what to do with a groundhog after I caught it and he said to "shoot it or take it 5 miles a away and MAKE SURE you cross an interstate". Now I understand why.
