If they like to eat their poop you'll just have to cover it up with a metal grid. :D

Yeah, we have poop eaters. :frustrated: If they run into poop in a hole, they consider it a wonderful bonus... :rolleyes:

We've had good luck with the metal grids along the fence, though, Sabine--now we just need to carpet the rest of the yard with chicken wire! :crazy:

I'm glad the poop trick is working with Maggie, white rabbit! :thumbs up You bring hope to the rest of us that at some point, we may find a workable solution to prevent the uncontrolled expansion of our hole collections! :D

But Hazel - they are just trying to get you a cheap trip to China. :D

Believe me, we're more than halfway there! :rolleyes: I practically needed a front-end loader to fill in the canyon Macie dug me the other day! :laughing: She excavates them carefully out of sight from the deck, usually behind the shrubbery growing up under the back oak. :dog:

Ever notice though, when it's time to turn the garden over in the fall the diggers are nowhere to be found?
I am going to try that poop trick, as he avoids his poop like the plague.

Thanks for the idea.
