Groundhogs are primarily a pest species because of their destructive burrowing habits. They often live under a shed or porch, or ornamental stone walls. Groundhogs
can move a lot of soil. They are also herbivores, and can eat your garden or other plants. Need groundhog removal or groundhog trapping?
Groundhogs, also known as woodchucks, are large, ground-dwelling rodents. Adults average about ten pounds. They are vegetarians, as many people that have gardens can attest. Groundhogs dig complex, interconnecting tunnels. They are exceptional & busy diggers. Each spring, a female usually bares 4-6 young. Groundhogs hibernate in the coldest months. They emerge in the spring ravenous.
The primary problem encountered with groundhogs involves their propensity to dig. They can and do move a lot of dirt, and when this digging occurs near a human structure, such as under a concrete deck, the absence of supporting dirt can lead to a vulnerable foundation prone to cracking. The secondary concern is the groundhog’s appetite, and the damage it can cause to crops. Many people wish to remove this animal before their garden is destroyed. Like all rodents, the groundhog’s teeth grown continually, and thus this mammal must gnaw, but this isn’t usually a problem for property owners.
The best way to handle a ground hog or woodchuck problem is by trapping and removal. If you try to simply fill in their burrows, they will dig their way out. If you attempt to use a repellent, the animals will either ignore it or simply dig elsewhere. There’s really no solution outside of trapping and removal.
