They’re cute when they are in someone else’s yard…. though you may be thinking to yourself at this time, “Why me?” Why chipmunks in my mulch? Why are groundhogs partying under my deck? Who let the possums in to my shed? If you have critters, we can assure you that you are not alone. You’re also not alone in your battle with them either.
