There are many species of wildlife that can call a crawlspace home, but the groundhog (or woodchuck) can be a destructive rodent to have living under your house. Aside from gnawing any exposed wiring, they may also burrow under the foundation, which can cause subsidence and cracking of the foundation. A All Animal Control of Roanoke (540) 815-7992 is on call to resolve any groundhog problems that you may have around your home in Blacksburg or surrounding areas.
Groundhogs are large, herbivorous rodents often seen foraging in fields and other low-cut, grassy areas. Their sharp teeth, like many rodents, are always growing, so their teeth must be worn down by gnawing on tough materials like hard, woody stems. Groundhogs are also known to raid gardens. If you have tomatoes, watch out! A groundhog can be seen sitting on its haunches with a tomato held between its front feet munching away.
Groundhogs dig large burrows that may have more than one entrance. These openings can be dangerous for cattle, horses, and even unsuspecting people. A false step into a groundhog burrow entrance can leave you with an injured ankle. If you suspect that you have a groundhog living in your field, yard, under a shed, or under your house; call A All Animal Control of Roanoke (540) 815-7992 today. Our Wildlife Professionals will take care of even your largest groundhog problem.
