[NAFEX] Groundhog Bait

Our community garden is plagued by groundhogs.  We trap a lot of them
with Hav-a-Hart traps using crucifer (cabbage-family) greens for bait:
Collards, cabbage -- anything in that family seems to be a magnet for
them (and these crops are always the first thing they destroy in the
plots early in the season). -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn.

Lisa:

The best groundhog baits for traps that I have found are ripe peaches
and nectarines.  Unfortunately, they are out of season just when you
need them, but you can use imported fruit from Chile and the groundhogs
will not discriminate.  Other fruits and vegetables I have tried do not
work nearly so well, and some do not work at all.  There is also a
commercial groundhog bait sold, but I have never tried it.  Doubt it is
better than fragrant peaches.
