Helping Homeowners Remove Woodchucks and Keep Woodchucks from Coming Back Since 1976

Whether you call them woodchucks, groundhogs, marmots, or whistle pigs, having a woodchuck on your property is a stinky nuisance. When there is a woodchuck living underneath your stoop, deck, or shed, the smell coming from the burrow can be unpleasant. Flies attracted by woodchuck feces are a nuisance, and fleas from the burrow can infest your home and pets.

Since 1976, we’ve been resolving human-wildlife conflict across Chicago and the Chicago Suburbs by humanely removing woodchucks and installing underground barriers to keep burrowing animals out.

  • Humanely remove woodchucks
  • Deodorize burrows
  • Apply an ectoparasite treatment for fleas, ticks, and mites
  • Install animal-proof barriers to prevent woodchucks from ever coming back
  • Close all foundation openings to keep woodchucks from burrowing
  • Deliver peace of mind

Woodchucks have their place in nature, not under your house.

What Happens When There’s a Woodchuck Under My House?

Since woodchucks move slowly, they are easy for dogs to catch, and while woodchucks aren’t generally aggressive unless they are defending their young, they can deliver a dangerous bite to an overzealous dog.

The first step in solving a woodchuck problem is to set traps to remove the woodchucks. Once the woodchucks are removed, our team installs underground fencing to keep woodchucks from burrowing underneath your house again.
