How can I keep the groundhogs from eating up my garden? We have a family of them nearby. Last year I didnt get a single tomato because they got ate before they ever got ripe. Didnt get no peas either. They are already invading my garden this year eating up my peas.

Samuel bought some stuff to spray on the garden but it isnt working at all. What can we do?

I found this on google, sounds weird but may work

Try feeding them Juicy Fruit gum. Buy several packs and unwrap each stick. Place the sticks in the garden where the groundhogs have been eating. They will eat the gum and go away. Or try sprinkling blood meal or talcum powder around the perimeter of the garden, or planting a line of garlic near the entrance. You could also spray fox, bobcat, or wolf urine (available at garden supply stores) in the garden.
