Will A Pest Control Company Remove A Groundhog?

Groundhog Removal with Pest Control
When you have a pest, your first instinct is to go to pest removal. Pest removal companies specialize in the removal of pests, after all, so it is the logical choice. However, they might not help with all pests. If you have a groundhog issue and you need the groundhog gone, you might not have any luck when going to a pest control company. Yes, groundhogs are pests, but pest control services might not offer removal services for them. Before you attempt to hire a service that is not going to help you, figure out if they remove groundhogs. It does depend on the company itself, but most have the same approach – no groundhogs or similar pests.

Pest Removal
For pest control companies, pests are insects. They focus on pests like roaches, the insects that can climb into your walls and home. They use chemicals to keep them out and make them leave, or outright kill the pests. For other types of pests, like groundhogs, they do not have anything that can help you. The sprays they use are for insects, not groundhogs, and they do not have any specialized equipment for the job. If you attempt to hire one for a groundhog removal, they will not be able to help you. They will not have anything for the job, nor will they know what to do. It is not something most pest control companies teach or know about because it is not part of their services.

Ask Questions
Not all pest removal companies will remove groundhogs, but some might. If you want to find the one that will, you will have to ask questions and look up the companies in your area. Most of them should provide this information for you. If the information is not readily available, you can ask. If they cannot do the removal, move on to the next one. Chances are, no matter how many you contact, they will not offer services for groundhogs. It is not widely available, though they may refer you to someone who can help, if that is available in your area. Pest control companies typically consider insects pests. They handle insects only, not having anything that can help with groundhogs. If you have a groundhog problem, you will have to find a separate service to remove it or you will have to do the work yourself. If you want to know whether your local pest control company can help, look online or ask questions.
