what is a groundhog
09/08/19

Groundhogs are famous for two things: February 2nd and digging. You’re probably more familiar with the first thing, but digging is the groundhog’s real claim to fame. A groundhog spends most of its time digging elaborate underground burrows. In the right environment, these burrows can become truly massive. Hopefully, your yard isn’t the right environment!

Of all the wildlife infestations homeowners contend with, these diggers often seem like the most inexplicable, not to mention frustrating. Where do groundhogs even come from? What do they even want? Why would they want to dig up your yard? Despite their apparently abrupt appearance, however, you can actually predict groundhogs--which means you can prevent them, too. The video will tell you everything you should know about the groundhog around you, including how to keep them away:

Once they’re established, groundhogs can be frustratingly difficult to get rid of. They’re literally entrenched, after all. We strongly recommend against attempting to remove the animals and their burrows yourself. Not only is this dangerous, but it’ll also be ineffective.

Instead of digging up your lawn, get in touch with Varment Guard. Our experts can remove groundhogs quickly, safely, and humanely, all without hurting your yard. The sooner you get in touch, the earlier we can stop the burrowing, so give us a call right away!
