Williamsburg wildlife control tip of the month:
Groundhog Trapping: How to Trap an Groundhog
Groundhogs can be very aggressive when they are caught. They are very powerful and will do anything to get out of
a Williamsburg animal control trap. That is why it is very important what kind of a trap you choose to catch them. A steel cage used to catch
raccoons is an excellent choice. It has to be 12x10x30 in order for an digging rodent to fit inside. A trap has to be
placed directly over an active burrow, or on a path digging rodent usually walks on. Groundhog baits are a myth, they
will not touch any food just lying by. They dig their food and something just placed there will not interest them.
The best way to lure an digging rodent into a trap is to have digging rodent scent on the trap. That is why a Williamsburg pest control trap that already
caught one is so efficient.
Another advantage you have over digging rodents is their poor eyesight. They rely mostly on smell to find food and go
around, so placing small fences in order to direct them into a trap is a good thing to do. That is why one has to
have a lot of patience, you have to observe their movement in order to know where to place the trap. It takes some
time, but it is definitely worth it if you want to catch one. Nevertheless, if you want to trap one, you should first
check your local laws, because in some states it is illegal to trap them. And once you catch them, you should also check
Williamsburg wildlife removal regulations on relocating them because that is also illegal in some states.
So what to do if you catch one? Well the best thing to do would be to call a licensed Williamsburg exterminator wildlife trapper. They will know what
can or cannot be done with them. If it is legal, an digging rodent caught alive should be released at least 5 miles from the place
where it was caught. Lethal traps are another option, but there is always a discussion whether that is humane or not. In any
case, an animal caught that way will suffer a lot, and there is always a possibility some other creature will fall into the
trap. That other creature can be your pet, even a child can fall victim to it. That is why you have to be very careful. And
of course, those kinds of Williamsburg animal trapping traps can be illegal, so you have to check that as well.
