If you’ve seen your yard becoming more and more uneven, then you might have a groundhog problem in your yard. Groundhogs often spell disaster for gardens and lawns because of their constant tunneling. These tunnels can be dangerous for people and pets because of their depth and the fact that they aren’t always easily spotted. Today we’re going to be talking about how you can deal with groundhogs in Queens. Are you ready to learn more? Well, let’s do it!
So, what are groundhogs exactly?
These pesky little fellas are also known as woodchucks, marmots, and rockchucks. They are burrowing critters who hide from predators, raise pups, and cause all sorts of trouble underground. They aren’t very big, but they can often ruin a gorgeous yard. To make matters worse, they’re actually thriving right now. Many of their natural predators have been scant in recent years and that means that no one is there to stop them from growing out of control. That’s why we’ve got some tips for getting rid of these little fellas.
Don’t let groundhogs ruin your gorgeous yard.
When you see a groundhog burrow, be careful about approaching it or letting a dog approach it. Groundhogs can be highly territorial, especially if they have pups in their burrow. This can be dangerous for you and your pet. If you want to get started on getting rid of the critters, then you can spray deterrents that smell like their natural predators. You can also wait for the groundhogs to leave and then close the burrow. However, neither of these methods are particularly permanent. To get rid of the pests for good, you will need the help of a professional. We will ensure that the groundhogs are removed safely and humanely so that they can be relocated.
