Wilmington Groundhog Tip of the Week: Should I hire a pro, or remove groundhogs myself?
When you see a groundhog roaming around on your property, you know that the next step is to have it removed. You may however be wondering if you should remove it yourself or get the help of a professional. Truth is, getting the groundhog out is the most important thing as it can cause significant damage to your property if you do not. Therefore, hiring a professional or doing it yourself must give you the same results at the end of the day.
Hiring a professional for groundhog removal
Hiring someone to take care of your groundhog problems can have its own benefits. First, they are experienced and they know exactly where to place traps and how to remove the groundhogs. Using a professional wildlife removal service will also help you escape the unnecessary stress that comes with groundhog self-removal. They will also help you to avoid unnecessary risks that may be associated with coming into contact with groundhogs. They will remove groundhogs in a humane manner ensuring that the animals come out alive and are safely relocated.
Moreover, they have the experience and equipment needed for the removal of various kinds of wildlife. They can also tell when the groundhog has babies in its burrows and what the best time of the year to relocate groundhogs is. You also get to reduce the damage that may occur to your property during the course of its removal. Many wildlife companies offer insurance against damages caused during the removal of wild animals. This can help you save money that would have otherwise been used on repairs if there were any.
DIY groundhog removal
If you are confident that you can handle the removal of groundhogs from your property, then, you can go ahead and do the removal. If done properly, you will get the same results professionals will get. The best way to remove groundhogs while doing it yourself is to trap them. To do this, you will need a humane trap and bait to encourage the groundhog to enter the trap. Humane traps are available in hardware stores to ensure that groundhogs are safe inside them before snapping shut. The trap can then be carried to a safe distance and released where the groundhog won't be a bother to anyone.
Before you trap them, ensure that female groundhogs do not have any babies as removing them without their babies can lead to the death of the babies or worse, create another wave of groundhog problems for you if they do survive. Also, make sure to wear protective clothing and avoid touching groundhogs with your bare hands.
