  • we call them baggers black 'n' white foxes in our area. Some kind of fencing might be the only cruelty free option but them baggers have claws like bolt cutters

    The Badgers are digging up quite a few lawns including my own searching for grubs , although annoying i tolerate it , i find eventually they move on and they dont return for months its pretty simple to repair the damage until next time . 

    It's not willfull damage its just what they do .

    As Billybop points out they have claws like bolt cutters , One client has a set in his garden they only damage the lawn near the sett but never venture onto the main lawn so perhaps they only operate within a certain territory so a gate or fence might restrict them .

  • Good luck with bagger fencing, it costs a bomb and they can still get through it because there so strong.

    Customer of mine use to have a problem with one digging up his lawn in the winter, I give it a good scarify ever autumn so the birds can get to the bugs, it's seemed to solve the problem for the past couple of years I hope.

  • they will be after chaffa grubs 

    they like peanuts put some down outside the property near where they are coming in for a month it might stop them plus treat the lawn for the grubs

  • They are lucky to have them. Suggest to your client that they set up a camera. They are stunning creatures. I know they are painful for us gardeners but since we keep destroying their natural habitats what else is left? I say let them dig.

    I have just had to deal with moles. Despite calls to have them killed, I have left them and sorted out the mess. They eventually moved on and there is little damage.
