How do I get rid of groundhogs?
A better question would be, how do I prevent groundhogs from settling on my property? The answer would be to use one of our groundhog prevention products.
They use ultrasonic sound to deter small mammals. The sound is inaudible to humans and most pets but is annoying to animals like woodchucks. That makes them the perfect preventive measure against them.
Place a repellent or two around your yard, make sure it has adequate sunlight to charge the battery, switch it on and leave it to it. That’s all there is to preventing groundhogs from taking up residence!
What do groundhogs eat in my yard?
Groundhogs are herbivores and love plants and any crops you may be trying to grow. That includes apples, carrots, soybeans, lettuce, berries, alfalfa, clover, corn, dandelions and any planted crops you may have.
If it’s a plant and growing in the ground, it will likely attract groundhogs.
What are the signs of groundhog activity?
There are a couple of signs of groundhog activity in your yard. One is a mound of dirt between 10-23 inches wide. These can be located anywhere but if you have a lawn you are particularly proud of, you can guarantee that’s where they will burrow!
The other sign is remnants of half eaten crops. A potato or tomato with a bite taken out of it is a common sign of groundhogs.
What damage do groundhogs do aside from eating my vegetables?
Stealing your fruit and vegetables may seem harmless but groundhogs burrow. That means they can undermine sheds, pathways, lawns, driveways, walls and even the foundations of your house.
If your dog or cat finds one, they can cause injury and those holes in your lawn can twist your ankle if you don’t watch where you’re going!
What do groundhogs look like?
Groundhogs, or woodchucks, look like cute brown furry creatures between 17 and 22 inches long. They weigh between 5 to 13 pounds and look a bit like squirrels without the tail.
They might look cute but they have a voracious appetite and can eat their way through your vegetable patch in no time at all. They also have big claws at the front to help them dig.
