The Biology and Habits of the CT Woodchuck:
The woodchuck, or groundhog, is a creature built for living underground. With a squat body and burrowing claws, it can easily make its way through the dirt and darkness. Smaller than one might imagine, most of the animals are less than two feet long and weight less than ten pounds. They are largely sedate creatures, spending most of their
lives creating safe burrows for their young and occasionally enjoying the sun during the warmer months. Once a burrow is established, the animals tend to stay within a relatively close proximity to their home, especially when the young are present.
The Damage They Cause:
Woodchuck removal is especially important due to the nuisance that the animals cause. The primary concern that leads to woodchuck (groundhog) removal is usually the catastrophic cosmetic damage that the animals can cause to a yard. Their digging can become quite noticeable, and those that create burrows can cause permanent damage to a yard. Beyond the cosmetic damage, the animals do present a real health and safety factor; the tunnels and burrows can cause holes and divots in a field or yard, leading to possible injury of both humans and livestock.
Why Woodchuck Removal Services?
Woodchuck removal is important for both the safety of human residents and the animals themselves. The damage to the yard can cause dangerous instabilities that can lead to an eventual clash between human and woodchuck, with the somewhat fragile animals often sustaining damage from other animals when removed from their homes forcibly. Groundhog removal can also be incredibly helpful for those that own farms and gardens, as the creatures are quite likely to both eat food that is ripe and to destroy seeding efforts. While the woodchucks do need to eat, it should not be at the expense of the owners of the land.
Woodchuck removal is done cleanly and humanely. Rather than using harmful chemicals, the animals are humanely trapped and released back into the wild. This can not only protect one’s lawn, but it can give the woodchuck a chance to re-establish itself in a safer environment. The creatures do cause harm to human health and wellness, but humane trapping can allow them to live out their lives in areas that will not cause further damage to lawns or homes. Trapped woodchucks will never return, creating a solution that is tenable for all. In need of Groundhog control service? Give us a call 860-510-6313.
