So, you now have the groundhog trap ready for use, but you find yourself overwhelmed by the fact that the active area of the trap is so small? Fear no more as I am here to help you with some tips and tricks for capturing groundhogs using the groundhog trap. Let’s begin!
1. As you can imagine, there are multiple strategies for getting the job done. First of all, and the most obvious, would be that of building more groundhog traps and placing them:
a) around your crop area (which would be a waste of active area)
b) in the middle of the crop area, as in the image below:
2. If you have more time on your hand, though, you can approach things differently and with a bigger success. First, you should view the action area of the Groundhog Trap by clicking the trap and selecting the option, then planting a set of crops in that area. Next, you can plant crops wherever you wish and simply move them in the area of the trap when they’re ready to be harvested (yes, you can move crops around using the move icon – thanks Liz for the tip!).
3. No matter which of the above strategy you choose to capture groundhogs, don’t forget to upgrade your Groundhog Trap for an increased action area!
