Badgers are all over our neighborhood. Is there a way to scatter them or cause them to relocate? Some have started digging in my yard too. I need to stop the digging as the holes are huge.
Badgers will dig for food so my guess is you have some kind of small animal nesting in the yard. Badgers like prairie dogs, gophers, moles, ground squirrels, voles, moles and other animals that make dens in the ground. I suggest you try to remove any prey animals you have living in the yard as this will stop the badgers from digging. Go to our main page and on the left side you’ll see we have articles on any animal that might be nesting in your yard. Get control of this activity and this will really help keep the badgers away.
And for badgers that won’t leave, you have two options. If you review our BADGER ARTICLE, you’ll see we have a few BADGER TRAPS listed. Set these where they’re digging and once trapped, relocate them 20 miles away to insure they won’t return. Badgers are easy to catch but you must relocate them a good distance since they’re easily return 5-10 miles.
