Groundhogs are enthusiastic burrowers. The tunnels they leave in their wake can interfere with your irrigation, destroy your electrical wires, and even obliterate your foundation. They’re a nuisance pest that can disrupt your root systems and landscaping. These are hungry creatures that will annihilate your vegetable garden in under a day. Leave them to their destructiveness, and you’ll soon face an entire family of them in the spring when they give birth.
Should you be alarmed if there is a groundhog on your property? While humans and groundhogs can often coexist, sometimes a single groundhog can become a big nuisance. If you found a groundhog living under your deck, destroying your garden or scavenging through your trash, Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control can help with groundhog removal services in Maryland. We use effective and humane methods to remove groundhogs in Rockville, Bethesda, Annapolis, Potomac and many other suburban and rural areas in Howard County, Montgomery County, Anne Arundel County and throughout Maryland.
One groundhog is almost always followed by more, so call Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control to nip the problem in the bud. As specialists in Maryland fauna, we have the skill to handle removal quickly, effectively, and compassionately. Call us at (443) 903-2368.
Groundhog Removal Options
If you’ve noticed groundhogs in your garden or home, it’s time to consider professional relocation supported by humane traps. Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control will handle the problem kindly, quickly, and permanently. Our live-capture traps are treated with bait that only appeals to groundhogs, so there’s no risk of trapping other creatures. We choose the least invasive option at our disposal, including exclusion strategies that encourage groundhogs to leave at their own volition. This way, we can minimize human interference in animal lives.
The most effective solution to a groundhog problem is to use live capture traps. We typically place 2 to 6 traps depending on the size of the property and the number of pest animals. The traps are placed in a strategic manner and baited with lures that are specifically designed to attract groundhogs and not other animals.
When groundhogs dig under porches, sheds or crawlspaces, it may be necessary to use exclusion techniques as well as trapping them. Exclusion techniques include the installation of barriers above and below ground to prevent groundhogs from reentering the area. We install impenetrable and effective exclusion materials that are designed to be inconspicuous and fit with the exterior of your home. Once our groundhog removal services are complete and we remove all the nuisance groundhogs from your property, we’ll make sure to fill their borrows to discourage other animals from nesting there.
When we remove your groundhogs, we make sure you never have to call us again by installing underground boundaries against reentry. If you’ve already rid yourself of rodents and need to repair the damage they cause, you can count on us. We’ll see to collapsed structures and track your groundhogs accurately.
If you have any questions, we’re always happy to discuss what we do, so call us at 443-903-2368.
