Ground Hog Removal: Is it Important?

Gambrills residents have probably seen a ground hog or two from time to time around the area. While ground hogs are cute to look at from far away and are excellent meteorologists, they can cause quite the problem for homeowners in Gambrills. Ground hogs cause a lot of their damage through digging and chewing. Ground hogs tend to burrow underground to create their homes, and this means burrowing within your Gambrills yard. Groundhogs will enter your yard and begin to burrow under sheds, decks, and gardens. Because these tunnels can reach up to 50 feet long and can go as deep as 10 feet, they can cause the soil surrounding your yard structures to become unstable. Ground hogs tend to also chew on almost anything they find. This means your plants, equipment, and wires are left vulnerable should a ground hog stumble upon them. Ground hogs can also cause problems in the roadways. Ground hogs are known to dart out into the middle of streets like other wild animals, leaving drivers at risk for major accidents. If a ground hog is struck by a vehicle, their carcass can attract other animals and create a bigger obstacle for drivers. If you believe you have a ground hog in your Gambrills home, never try to harm the animal. Ground hogs are fairly gentle creatures, but can always attack if provoked.
