Woodchucks are one of the few true hibernators in our area. This lays way to our groundhog ritual every year. Ground hogs or, woodchucks can actually cause a bit of harm. They excavate holes in yards making it dangerous for humans and livestock. What does a horse vet bill cost these days for a sprained ankle? Woodchucks will eat and ravish gardens. Like all nuisance wildlife animals they have a purpose and as long as they are not directly causing problems as far damage to property, crops or a threat to human/pet/livestocks then they are fine and we should co-exist. However, occasionally they don’t always agree to this unwritten rule and intervention is needed. If you are experiencing a problems with woodchucks, ground hogs or any other nuisance animal then give us a call to see how we can help. There are several ways to approach these sorts of pest problems and it doesn’t necessarily mean we need to trap and euthanize the offending animal.
