Edgefield County Clemson Extension News

By Nanette Hughes
web posted July 24, 2014

COUNTY – ‘What in the world ate all the peas? And look at the flowers, the tops are just gone!’ ‘Oh no, the trash can is turned over and what happen to all the cat food?’  ‘Wow the yard is sure spongey, and what those little tunnels? What could be causing that?’ ‘Oh goodness, has something died under the house?’  ‘Is that a tree down by the pond dam?’ Whether you live in Town or out in the County from time to time you will have a ‘critter’ encounter.

What is a critter? Those animals that come into your yard, look through the trash, hang out in the garden, make tunnels in the lawn or get under the house, just to name a few. Some of the most visible critters are: deer, raccoon, possums, beavers, skunks, moles and armadillos.
Some obvious ways to decrease encounters are to keep cat/dog food in closed containers and try to deer proof the garden. The Edgefield County Clemson Extension Office has information on how to humanely remove these unwelcome visitors and why they hang around. The pamphlets are FREE and are located in the hall outside of our office.
Critters are a fact of life and we are probably living in their neighborhood. However armed with the right information we can live in harmony.

Don’t forget the publication of the Month: Home Vegetable Gardening in South Carolina ($15).  If purchased during the month of July a free soil sample (usually $6) will be included.
The Edgefield County Clemson Extension office is located at 304 Gray Street. Phone number: 637.3161 Call or come by to see what’s new.
