Groundhogs in Glen Burnie?

Does your Glen Burnie yard have groundhogs?

If it were up to the groundhogs, then every day would be Groundhog Day. Alas, it is not. These pesky little critters can tear up a yard very quickly. They will lay waste to any garden or landscaping project you might be working on and they will only be too happy to ruin your lawn. So, what can you do to deter these pests? That’s what we’ll be talking about today. Are you ready to learn more about how you can keep groundhogs out of your Glen Burnie yard? Let’s do it!

Spot the problem.

Groundhog problems are relatively easy to spot. If you see raised tunnels throughout your yard, then you probably have some little friends. It should be noted that groundhogs are very territorial creatures, so if you think you might have one out there then proceed with lots and lots of caution. Keep an eye on pets too! Now, if you think there might be groundhogs underneath your shed or house, then you should get rid of the quickly. Burrows underneath concrete can lead to crackling and buckling and no one wants that.

Trapping the best option.

If you want to curb the groundhog problem in your Glen Burnie property, then you need the groundhogs removed plain and simple. Filling in the holes will only prompt them to dig them back out. Repellents don’t really work effectively. So, trapping and relocation is the only real option. Now, these little fellas are often the carriers of rabies, so it’s not wise to go after them yourself. Try to keep your family and pets away from the pests until a professional can come to your aid.
