Getting Groundhogs Out of Gardens


Subject:
Gardening , Mammals , Pests & Diseases , Groundhogs

Description:
This fact sheet suggests humane ways to keep groundhogs (also known as woodchucks or whistle-pigs) out of the garden and from burrows under a porch or building. It notes that "[t]rapping and relocating groundhogs may ... lead to starving young left behind. It is much more effective to simply exclude groundhogs from areas where they're not wanted."
