Macomb County Woodchuck RemovalWoodchucks Are Damaging to Your Home

Can Woodchuck Tunnels Damage Your Home’s Foundation?

Woodchucks, or groundhogs, are known for the tunnels they dig. Woodchuck burrows have wide openings and often have large piles of dirt thrown out around them. Burrows can have up to five entrances, and the tunnels may total up to 45 feet in length. Groundhog burrows are an average of five feet deep.

How Woodchuck Tunnels Can Threaten Your Home

Woodchucks tend to dig their burrows near buildings and other structures, such as sheds, patios, and decks, that can provide overhead stability. If a woodchuck digs a burrow near your home’s foundation, it can threaten your house’s structural stability. If the entrance to the burrow opens up against the foundation, water can seep in. This can eventually wear away the foundation and cause it to crumble.

Homeowners are often unaware that a groundhog has burrowed near their foundation. The burrows are underground and can go undetected for years. During that time, the foundation of the house can gradually be weakened, putting the safety of the occupants at risk. A homeowner may not be aware that a woodchuck burrow even exists until it collapses. At that point, the foundation of the house will already be damaged.

What to Do If a Groundhog Has Dug a Burrow on Your Property

If you have seen evidence of a groundhog living on your property, such as a hole in your yard and a pile of dirt nearby, there is a good chance that it burrowed near your home’s foundation. This is not something you should ignore since it can cause major structural damage.

You should have the woodchuck trapped and removed from your property as soon as possible by a professional. Don’t wait to take action to deal with your woodchuck problem. A groundhog can cause severe and potentially dangerous damage to your house’s foundation. source:

How to Keep Skunks Away From House

Five steps to keep skunks away, involving habitat modification and food sources:

1 – Keep pet food indoors and secure garbage cans. Food remains the greatest pull for wandering wildlife. If possible, store your trash bins indoors at night, so their smell doesn’t attract skunks.

2 – Remove fruit that has fallen from your trees, especially those that produce nuts, berries, crabapples, or other fruits. Pick them as soon as they ripen and rake your yard as often as necessary.

3 – Remove brush piles; use gravel, fencing, or plywood to seal all holes and entrance points to locations that a skunk may find suitable for a home – like under an elevated house, a porch, sheds, decks, and foundations. Do same for barns and poultry houses.

4 – Apply a topical application to your lawn grass to eliminate food sources for the skunk.

5 – Skunks don’t usually make their own shelter but use dens that have been abandoned by other wildlife. Inspect your property and block all holes and burrows. source:
