Ossian Animal Control and Removal Service - Ground Hog Removal.
We just had a customer living in Ossian, Indiana call with a Ground Hog in her basement. She just arrived home and heard noises coming from her basement. When she opened the basement door she was very surprised to see a groundhog causing havoc in the basement.
Ground hogs, sometimes called woodchucks are ground borrowing animals and many times will burrow under decks, sheds, and foundations. Groundhogs do not have fur like many other animals in Indiana. They must hibernate for the winter in order not to freeze. When temperatures rise, groundhogs begin to wake up and move around looking for food and water. Soon they will begin to breed and can give birth to 3-6 young.
This Ossian ground hog decided it would dig into the part of the house that used to be a porch. This porch has a 6 inch crawlspace under it. The ground hog burrowed under the front steps and entered the basement through a ground level window that was unlocked underneath the porch.
®American Animal Control, LLC wildlife removal specialists set up a trap over the entry point and were able to trap and remove the nuisance ground hog before it was able to do more damage to the home. Groundhogs or woodchucks many times will enter under a deck to gain access through a foundation vent or burrow along side the basement or crawlspace . Many times our wildlife professionals will install deck and shed barriers to prevent animals from digging.
