Both their diet and burrowing habits make them a nuisance animal around farms and gardens. They will eat many commonly grown vegetables and their burrows can destroy small ponds and undermine foundations. Groundhog dens often provide homes for other animals including skunks, foxes, raccoons, and cottontail rabbits. You can easily identify groundhog dens because the usually will mound up soil outside the entrance.

What do we do for Groundhog problems?

We use a variety of control methods. We trap most of our groundhogs live and remove them from the property. We also like to perform an exclusion to wherever a groundhog may have been living, under porch or foundation etc. Essentially, we will create a barrier to keep other animals from doing the same thing again. We charge a flat rate to solve your groundhog problem. However, when performing a more permanent mitigation process to keep them from coming back, rates fluctuate from property to property.

To keep groundhogs off your property:

  • Harvest all crops as soon as possible.
  • Keep brush and debris piles down.
  • Trim back plants groundhogs will eat or use for cover.
  • Be sure to properly maintain or remove decks and other foundations where groundhogs might burrow or build dens.
