Woodchucks, aka groundhogs, are short, stocky animals with light to dark brown fur and flat, bushy tails. They are excellent burrowers that dig extensive tunnels with various chambers. However, their digging ability can be quite problematic to the structural integrity of decks and sheds. Groundhogs are true hibernators that hibernate throughout the winter, which led to the creation of Groundhog Day. 

HOW TO GET RID OF WOODCHUCKS?

  • 1. Woodchuck Problem

    Woodchucks can cause more damage to the structure of a home than any other animal. We have seen decks and sheds collapsed because of their digging and tunnels. Woodchucks can also be a problem in the garden because they will eat your vegetables, fruits, and flowers. 

  • 2. Trapping & Removal

    At Advanced Wildlife Control, we believe in humane animal removal. Therefore, we will humanely live trap and relocate the woodchuck 30+ miles away from your home. We usually caught around 300 woodchucks each year!

  • 3. Prevention & Repair

    The final step when dealing with woodchucks is to fill up their old burrows with dirt. Our technicians may also suggest a deck trench to prevent future animals from digging underneath your deck or shed.

Woodchucks are herbivores. They primarily eat grasses, twigs, berries, garden vegetables, green plants, and other vegetation. 

Woodchucks can be found throughout Wisconsin in fields, wooded areas, and underneath decks and sheds. With their exceptional digging ability, woodchucks create elaborate dens where they sleep, mate, and hibernate during the winter. 

The breeding season for groundhogs occurs from March to April. Baby groundhogs are born in May with a litter size of about 2-6 babies.
