Groundhogs are actually closely related to squirrels. It has short strong legs designed for digging. They are usually found in open pastures, woodlots and fields. In urban cities like Toronto, Groundhog’s initial damage to a property is usually to its landscape, garden and vegetables. They dig and tunnel underground and eat most crops. The main problem arises when they dig holes under the foundation of your home, or deck. The absence of soil makes the foundation unstable and catastrophic collapse is imminent. This could cost thousands of dollars in damages. In Toronto groundhog removal is a two step process. First is humane removal and second is protection against re-entry. It’s best to do so before spring and baby season. In spring, groundhogs usually give birth to 2 to 6 young in a litter. Within 2 months, these babies will be ready to move on and live their own lives, digging and burrowing holes.

Groundhog Diseases

Groundhogs can rarely get rabies but it’s a more common disease with animals such as raccoons, bats, and skunks. They might contract roundworm disease which cannot be easily transferred to your dog unless it eats the animal.
