Woodchuck Nuisance Concerns

Woodchucks, also known as groundhogs, are a common farm and garden pest. Woodchucks are fairly large animals and are related to the squirrel family. They will eat quite a variety of foods such as lettuce, spinach, green beans, peas, squash, zucchini and cucumbers. They are known to eat berries as well.

Woodchucks commonly nest underground beneath homes or sheds. Their work can be seen on golf courses, the mounds of earth with several holes leading to a series of tunnels. They are daylight creatures and not out at night as often. They are usually seen in the morning and evening hours when the light is lower and they feel safer.

If woodchucks have become a problem on your property, contact Tri-County Wildlife Control today and get started with a free estimate.

Woodchuck Damage

Woodchucks can cause extensive damage to vegetable and flower gardens. A single woodchuck can reduce a garden to stubs in just a few days. Woodchucks also create vast burrows. This burrowing can cause small sheds, pools, or outbuildings to collapse. Woodchuck control and removal is the only way to solve these problems.

Woodchuck Removal and Prevention

Woodchucks are common in New York. In the wild, woodchucks prefer meadows, hedgerows, and hayfields. In urban and suburban areas, woodchucks will den under barns, porches, sheds, and decks. To keep woodchucks from your yard is difficult. They eat the vegetation we plant in our yards and gardens. Often the only realistic defense is for animal control operators to trap and relocate them.
