I suggest getting four small stakes and marking that plant if you don't want the landscaper hitting it again.

I've tried havahart traps, to no avail. This was a last resort. I grow enough organic potatoes to last us all year.. It's a huge blow to lose six months worth of food...
That sounds better than my method.
I agree, the final step in the process is as disgusting as it is heavy on the heart.
Let's just put it this way, it is almost too effective.. You have to bait them with a little trail of the seeds on the plank though. In the morning you'll have to empty the bucket, it will be almost full

Don't even get me started on moles/voles. Having a bad problem with them right now.
I just put a ton of that repel stuff down. If that doesn't work, I'll have to resort to something I really don't want to do.
The bucket walk of death. I won't use poison because we have so many birds of prey. I can't just leave them be because they are near my septic areas.
I've seen a few of those... they can eat through a plant in no time!!
And you're right they have quite the grip to them.
if we saw something staked we went around it or asked..usually didn't bother asking..just went around it..

Update on the Flower
My Granddaughter saw the warning tape. When I told her about the flower she looked at it and said, "That's the same as Fluffy."
Last August her dad bought some pots and flower seeds for her to plant. Fluffy was her favorite flower that grew from the seeds. When I mentioned how far the pot was from where Fluffy's Sister is now and speculated about how the seed got there, she said: "No, the pot was right there when I put the seeds in."
Mystery solved. The seed from which Fluffy's sister grew was in the grass since August, and just came up about a month ago. Does that count as an Old Seed ?

someone used a tank of propane gas and a hose to asphyxiate their tunnels. Immoral and wicked. Worked like it too. Also the grass was really green the next spring.
