Woodchucks and Groundhogs are one and the same – just a matter of what you were taught. They are a destructive and frustrating menace to any unprotected gardens and plantings… You might find woodchuck removal necessary as they sometimes choose to live under your smaller out-buildings, porches and decks or they come from close proximity to feast on your flowers. These tunneling excavators are very crafty and require deep screening into the ground to keep them at bay, but beware as they can also climb…
Woodchucks and Groundhogs hibernate from late fall to early spring and generally don’t travel to far from where they have burrowed. In short order their families can grow and impose a multiple force on your turf if left alone.
A combination of humane woodchuck removal and prevention/exclusion can resolve most issues when dealing with these animals.
