The most effective and efficient method for Groundhog Control is to employ Groundhog trapping and physically remove them from the property by a professional trapper.  After the woodchucks are removed, we recommend installing wire exclusion material under your deck or around the shed foundation to prevent any other animals from accessing these areas.  This will solve your problem for good.  We have performed hundreds of groundhog removal jobs and exclusions and have not had one call back, so we must be doing something right.  If you are interested in our services give us a call at 937-340-1867.  Referrals are available upon request.

Groundhogs or Woodchucks are large land rodents.

Herbivores by nature - eat primarily plant material such as grass and clover.

Diurnal behavior which means they are active during daylight hours only as many of their predators lurk at night (nocturnal). Groundhogs can climb to escape danger if need be.  We often see them climb fences and up trees.

Groundhogs hibernate during the cold Ohio winter months and often will be heard inside basements in the middle of winter trying to stay warm against the house foundation.

They mate in mid spring and pregnancy lasts a little over 1 month with an average little size of 4 baby groundhogs.

Groundhogs carry many local parasites found in Ohio such as intestinal worms, fleas, ticks. If you find any wild animal living in your yard and you have pets, be sure that your dog or cat is vaccinated as these diseases can easily be transmitted.
