Groundhog Control

Most animal pests are classified as pests due to their destructive nature and resistance to typical control methods. Certain animals will even have state or local laws protecting them, significantly narrowing the control options available for a homeowner or business owner. Because they are animals and not insects, these pests also tend to have a higher evasion rate; sometimes they can squirm out of traps or survive after ingesting a bit of poison. One of these evasive creatures is the groundhog, also known as a land-beaver or woodchuck. They also belong to the marmot family, which includes yellow-bellied and hoary marmots. Unlike their marmot brothers, groundhogs are more indigenous to low-elevation areas. The vast forest clearing happening in recent years is only adding to their favor, giving these pests more places to inhabit.

Groundhog Behavior

Contrary to popular belief, groundhogs are actually related to the squirrel, not the mouse or rat. Consequently, they also happen to be the largest members of this family, growing up to 30 inches and weighing about 4 to 9 pounds. Although their limbs are short, groundhogs’ limbs are strong and highly effective at digging. Therefore, one of the biggest problems they cause is numerous burrows and holes. For a gardener in particular, this troublesome hobby can destroy multiple crop beds and soil in general, making it impossible to replant anything near the entrance of the groundhog holes. In addition, groundhogs are also mostly herbivorous and mainly eat vegetation. As a result, they pose double the trouble to gardeners because they destroy soil and consume plants. Groundhogs will also consume other insects that are harmful to plants, but they favor plants and therefore wreak havoc more than they help out.

Because they are members of the squirrel family, groundhogs also hibernate for the winter. They will create an entirely separate burrow just for hibernation and remain there from about October to March or April (sometimes less, depending on the region). When one may attempt to chase out or attack a groundhog, it may simply swim away or dash up a tree. One reason why they are particularly annoying to eliminate is their “alarm” system; there will always be at least one groundhog on guard duty while the others are eating and, if it detects danger, it will make a whistling sound to warn the others.

How to Get Rid of Groundhogs

Thankfully, Pest Mall conducted its research and is aware of all the difficulties accompanying groundhog control. Therefore, we provide a series of high-quality products that should effectively eliminate these unwanted guests from your yard or garden. If groundhogs have not yet invaded the yard or garden, one can apply a repellent around the perimeter of the designated area to prevent any of these pests from entering in the first place. In addition, copper mesh can be stuffed into vents and other narrow places to halt the creatures in their paths. On the other hand, if groundhogs have already penetrated into one’s property, there are several different control methods available. If one wishes to utilize a more humane method, Pest Mall offers live animal traps that can be set up with bait and concealed in areas with high groundhog traffic. Glue traps will also immobilize the pests, though there is a chance that they could die of starvation or dehydration on the traps. A popular control tool appears to be gas bombs which can be placed directly into groundhog burrows to suffocate and kill them. These bombs, called Giant Destroyers, can be deposited into burrow entrances then covered with dirt for a discreet killing effect. Whichever method a homeowner may choose, if used correctly and in a sufficient amount, destructive groundhogs should no longer be a problem.

Q. What product to get for DrywoodTermite and will you shipped to Hong Kong
My mother has an apartment (on the 9th floor) in Hong Kong and she found termites. I believe they are drywood termites and she is looking for a spray to prevent the termites from developing again. I wonder if you can recommend a strong product and easy to apply - just spraying at the spot will be great. I also wonder if you shipped directly to Hong Kong. Thanks for your help.
A.   Premise Foam seems like the product you are looking for! However, we are unable to ship the product to Hong Kong due to strict regulations on international shipping.
