Once you start seeing groundhog holes pop up, it’s time to call AAAC Wildlife Removal. Groundhog dens can have 5 or more entrances, each of which will damage your equipment, sprain your ankle, and put your farm animals out of commission. It’s no use plugging the holes because they’ll just make more. Before you get hurt or your equipment gets damaged, give AAAC Wildlife Removal a call.

Groundhogs in the Yard

Groundhogs look for soft ground where they can build their dens, which can become quite large and elaborate. They may have five or more entrances. They usually pick open areas with a lot of vegetation nearby.

You’ll find them underneath sheds, decks and porches to the inside of your crawl space. If groundhogs dig under a structure, their tunnels can lead to serious damage, causing sagging and even collapse of the structure.

Groundhog Damage

The burrows and feeding habits of groundhogs can cause significant damage to human-built structures, crops and gardens. The holes they create can be a hazard to farm animals and equipment. Since they hibernate, they may gorge on human-grown food and vegetation. They also gnaw on wood to sharpen their teeth.

Not to mention, Groundhog holes can cause you some real physical injury. No one wants to have to ice their ankle and spend 2 weeks in a brace because they rolled their ankle in a groundhog hole!

Groundhog Trapping and Removal

Blocking off their holes won’t work with groundhogs as they will usually dig them up again or even dig a new hole.

Groundhogs can be either captured and relocated or trapped lethally. The equipment required for this should be handled by a trained and certified AAAC Wildlife Removal specialist to prevent both injury and the risk of catching disease.
