What Attracts Groundhogs?

Groundhogs hibernate during winter, which means they are on a constant hunt for food with which to gorge themselves during the spring and summer months. They will typically enter a crop field, farm, meadow, pasture, or backyard in search of an adequate food supply. An area that doesn’t meet their food needs will be uninteresting to them. While they sometimes will resort to eating insects (like snails, grubs, and grasshoppers) and worms, groundhogs are primarily herbivores.

They prefer to feed on:

  • Tree bark
  • Twigs
  • Fruits such as berries and apples
  • Vegetables such as lettuce, carrots, and corn
  • Grasses
  • Plants such as clover, alfalfa, and dandelions

Because they like to eat fruits, vegetables, and grasses, backyard gardens and farms are ideal stomping grounds for these rodents.

What Damage Do Groundhogs Cause?

In a very short amount of time, groundhogs can cause a lot of damage to a yard or landscape.

Groundhogs dig burrows into the ground where they can protect themselves against predators, hibernate during the winter, and breed. These tunnels can often extend as far as 5 feet deep into the ground and be as wide as 65 feet. Naturally, these burrows are the main source of damage caused by groundhogs. They can destroy the plant, tree, and grass root systems in the ground, create giant mounds of dirt, and even compromise the integrity of nearby structures.

Additionally, because groundhogs eat as much as a third of their body weight in food each day, it is common for plants, shrubs, and fruit and vegetable gardens to be destroyed by them.

How to Get Rid of Groundhogs

Once they make it onto your property, groundhogs can be very difficult to get rid of. Homeowners can try building fences or sprinkling black pepper around the perimeter of their yards, placing soiled cat litter in groundhog holes, or removing woodpiles from the yard, but bringing in a professional groundhog control team is always the best solution. Humanely trapping and removing groundhogs is often the only effective solution and should always be handled by trained specialists such as those at Enviro-Tech Pest Services. Our qualified experts know how to locate groundhogs and remove them from a property without causing more damage or putting others at risk.
