Groundhog Removal Ottawa: Dealing with the Groundhog
As reliable experts in handling groundhog removal, we can get in there and remove the reasons why they might find your area appealing. They are often found burrowing into homes during the spring and the summer, and will usually stay close to their burrow. This means that if you have a set of groundhogs near or in your home, the burrow is usually within 100-150ft of where you have found them.
They tend to build near homes, roads and locations that allows them to feel guarded and safe from other animals or creatures catching them off guard. While it’s very rare that a Groundhog would ever attack you, if one does it’s likely suffering from rabies or a similar problem.
The best way to deal with these critters is to keep them out of your garden. From burrowing deeper fences into the ground to making sure you have outward-facing overhangs to stop them getting underneath or above, we can find ways to keep them out.
