    I have had this affliction on and off for ten plus years.

    First off get out of you regular flip flops.

    I have used custom orthodics and inserts, both work the same for me. I like Sole inserts. You can try Superfeet as well.

    Get a pair of Birkenstocks to wear when not working or if you can at work they will help relieve the pain.
    They will take a few days to wear in but will work.
    If you can't stand them get a pair of Sole Flips they have support and regular wear help.

    What has a podiatrist said? I have heel pain which, I was adviced to buy insoles & it's helped a bit. I like the Dr. Scroll's Gel heel support cushions. I would suggest you see a podiatrist and have them give you further advice.

    I'd say there's a point where if you know the traps and things aren't working and they're starting to cause some pretty serious damage to the house that stronger pest control has to be a real option. I'd think $20,000 in repairs is definitely past that point. You're not shooting them for kicks or just because they're eating your garden.

    ART(Active Release Technique) I had FP for about 2 years, after using a removal boot, 2 Cortisone shots, etc, I tried ART and was cured after about 7 sessions. That was 2 years ago, no problems since. If you want the name of the guy I used PM me, he is in South OC.

    Yeah, Dunno if you ever got to read that thread but it was pretty funny. It seems that thread has been purged from the archives. Anyway, I really hate that I have to dispatch these little guys. But like you observed and mentioned, Ive tried everything. I even had 2 pest control contractors come in and give me a estimate...$1200 and $1700 respectively. Both were going to use a indiscriminate type poison that would take hours or days to work and would probably kill off the clans around the property that arent giving me grief. I dont want to draw out their death. Plus they would more than likely all die at one time under my house...bleh...the smell would suck. The good thing about the air gun route is I can hopefully thin the herd to the point where they realize its time go go. Both Contractors told me that GH's are fairly smart animals that will, at some point, realize this area is a bad area and should split. Thats REALLY what Im hoping for. I dont want to waste the whole group. Hopefully it will only take 2 or 3 and they'll bail. One contractor said to leave the carcass out in the open for a day or two and that should trigger them to relocate. Whatever happens, I plan on tossing the dead buggers into the river behind my house to feed the turtles so there wont be any waste.

    The Squirrel problem I had a few years back has been remedied for now. When my 2 elder indoor cats died 2 years ago, we decided to get 2 kittens from the pound and make them outdoor. Well, the only time I see squirrels now is in the dead of winter when I dont have any tomatoes growing. lol. In the dead of winter here in VA, my cats spend all day and night in the climate controlled garage so the tree rats have full run of the yard.

    All in all, I think this will probably be the best way to do it. My Conscience is and will clear.

    If you can find their holes, you can try putting dog poop around it and inside of it. That will typically chase them away. If that doesn't work, go Judge Dredd on their asses!

    ya, it's a bummer when you have to kill them. they're so cute... but also so destructive.
    my parents have had a gopher problem for the longest time and finally got rid of them by sticking a hose down a tunnel and drowning them. it made me sad to hear it, but for my parents, having to redo their garden constantly and fix their lawn because of all the holes was driving them mad. the dead gophers in the hole supposedly made all others relocate far far away.

    nocturn, mentioning that you hope the groundhogs don't die under your house reminds me of my parents' neighbor who had a mouse problem because she had some grape vines that she let grow wild in a standard southern california backyard (so we're not talking acres or anything). i'm not sure what she did or didn't do but they all died under her house and caused a horrible stink. blegh.
