Chesapeake wildlife control tip of the month:

How to Get Rid of Groundhogs

Although they seem as cute creatures, groundhogs can cause a lot of damage to people. Their burrows can cause sheds and porches to collapse, they eat vegetables and plants people plant in their gardens, so getting rid of them is one of the priorities for gardeners. There are numerous ways to get rid of them, some of them humane, others violent and potentially dangerous. Those Chesapeake pest control methods are repellents, fences, trapping (whether live or dead), poisoning, repositioning them… Some ways are smart, others can do harm to those using them. Killing groundhogs is not advisable. You can kill them in many ways, from as simple as taking a rifle and shooting them to poisoning or death traps. Poisoning and repellents can backfire on you since you are basically putting Chesapeake animal control poison on the food you eat. Killing them is very inhumane since animals suffer a lot in those traps, and getting rid of the carcasses can prove to be a problem because groundhogs can be carriers of diseases.

Putting a Chesapeake wildlife removal fence around your garden can be very effective, but a fence must be put properly. It has to be buried at least 18 inches and be 3 feet high. And of course, it has to be metal since groundhogs could easily eat through wood. But, what can you do when you already have a groundhog in your garden? Well, setting Chesapeake animal trapping traps that catch them alive is the most preferable solution. Traps are easy to use, they just have to be free from human scent and you have to use bait groundhogs like, such as fruits or vegetables. Once you get rid of the groundhog, it is an imperative to plug his burrow because it is an invitation for another to come in.

There are natural Chesapeake exterminator methods of getting rid of them, like getting a dog or a cat to guard your garden. Trying to physically remove them by digging into a burrow or sealing it can be dangerous because a groundhog will fight if you try to do this. They have large front teeth and big claws and they can cause a lot of damage to the attacker. You should always wear thick gloves, especially if you caught a live one in a trap. They become really agitated when trapped and they will do anything to escape. Patience is your best weapon against them and you should be persistent in your attempts.
