Ground Hog Control & Removal
Groundhogs, also known as woodchucks, are species of marmots and are actually members of the squirrel family. Groundhogs are hibernating animals and spend their summer stocking up on food portions preparing for the cold winter where they typically nest in their underground burrows. Groundhogs have been known to occasionally climb trees and they are strong swimmers making them avid travelers of all terrain.
Groundhog Day Tradition
Groundhog Day is a popular tradition held in February. Spectators gather to watch the groundhog, aka, Punxsutawney Phil, emerge from his hibernation and if he sees his shadow, six more weeks of winter, but if there is no shadow it means early spring!
