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.
How We Go About Groundhog Removal Services
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.
