Woodchucks, also known as groundhogs or whistle pigs, are a member of the squirrel family. They are primarily a nuisance to outdoor areas, and shouldn't usually be found indoors. Woodchucks whistle shrilly as they scurry back to the safety of their dens when startled, giving them the nickname whistle-pigs. They hibernate in winter for about three months and their body temperature can change from 99 degrees to 37! If you are experiencing a groundhog problem on your property, don't panic.

Full-Service Groundhog Trapping & Removal
Since groundhog burrows have multiple entrances and exits, traps should only be set by trained professionals. Although woodchucks do not actively attack humans, they may scratch or bite when cornered or threatened, and residents should never attempt to handle the animals. Critter Control wildlife experts are trained to safely deal with nuisance groundhogs and fully equipped to handle trapping, removal, and control operations within the confines of the law.
