Humane Woodchuck Extraction and Exclusion
Groundhogs are also called woodchucks, as well as, groundpig, land beaver, marmot, and even whistle pigs. They can be found all over Indiana, and have proven to be quite the nuisance to property owners regardless of their holiday mascot prestige. Groundhogs are the largest members of the Sciuridae family, which is includes medium-sized rodents like squirrels, chipmunks, and gophers. Known as an edge species, groundhogs like to stay in transitional zones where forested areas connect to well-vegetated open fields or meadows. As a diurnal species, they are active during the day, and spend most of their time underground in complex burrow systems. Dirt that is dry and in good condition is a prime target area for groundhogs because it makes for the best burrowing.
For this reason, it is common to find woodchuck burrows near fence lines, houses, hedgerows, and lined trees. You may also notice chewing on garden vegetables, damaged crops, chewed irrigation lines, and paw prints in soil. Groundhog tunneling is a major concern for property owners because it can cause foundations to collapse, damage underground utility lines, and flood landscapes. Although groundhogs are not a significant source of infectious diseases, they can contract the Rabies virus, and thus, pose a threat to both humans and pets. If you see signs of groundhog burrowing or activity, it is important take action fast to prevent the damages from worsening. Contact an Indianapolis wildlife removal company you can trust to deliver safe and humane solutions for nuisance groundhogs.
