Re: Crawdad Question (fwd)


   Where do you live ?  Here in the south, it is not uncommon to find
crawfish holes a distance from water, especially if you are below sea level.
In the New Orleans area, you would have to only dig as deep as 12" to find
water in a lot of areas. Also, crawfish do tend to migrate, especially after
a heavy rain, so it is possible to find them in places that you would never
expect to find them.  Crawfish holes are very easy to distiguish from other
types of holes.  They are usually about 1 1/2" - 2" in diameter and topped
by a mud "volcano" about 2" - 4" in height.  This is mud that has been
excavated from the hole.
    As far as eradication, I really don't know what to tell you.
