Most recent featured article: Many people turn to poison to get rid of their groundhog problems. There are several types of poisons on the market and they all work in various ways; with the end result death of the groundhog. Fumigation is a method under which gaseous pesticides or fumigants are used in the entire area to suffocate or poison the groundhogs within. The most widely used and preferred fumigant is Methyl Bromide. However, we need to understand that use of poison to get rid of groundhogs affects the human health as well. It is toxic to almost all forms of life and that includes human beings as well and should be used with extreme caution.
Yellow fly bait crystals are another form of poison that kills them all at once. Again, the animals suffer from various reactions to the poisons and this is not the most humane way to rid yourself of the groundhog problem.
Strychnine is another popular form of poison that many turn to as a method of getting rid of rodent problems. Strychnine works by suffocating the animal.
There are several things to consider before using poison to get rid of your groundhog problems.
It is inhumane as the animal can suffer greatly. Poisons do not always, or even usually, act instantly. Most of the time, animals suffer from the effects of poison and this can last for days. The groundhog may suffer from internal bleeding, suffocation, loss of muscle control, convulsions, painful sores in and around the nose and mouth, blindness and a host of other painful effects.
It may be illegal to use certain poisons for certain animals. Rat poison, for example, cannot be used for other types of animals.
Finding the right type of poison for the right animal can be a challenge. In general, the only effective and legal poisons are rodenticides for rats and mice. There is no such thing as an effective woodchuck poison.
4. Many times non-targeted animals, including your favorite pets, can get a hold of the poison instead of the groundhogs.
