How do I go about getting rid or prairie dogs?


Answer by  devinesl (27)

The most humane way to deal with prairie dogs is to hire an animal removal specialist to relocate the prairie dogs. Before you hire them, insure that they will in fact relocate the animals and not exterminate them, as some choose to poison them. It is much more kind to simply allow the prairie dogs to be moved.

There are many ways to get rid of prairie dogs, but it depends if you want to hurt these animals or not. I'm guessing you don't, so the use of poisons and explosives would not be wise choices. You can use animal repellents such as Nature's Defense. You can also use humane traps. It's not easy!
