Interesting Groundhog Facts & Information
Pestend Pest Control Toronto provides groundhog removal services in Toronto and throughout southern Ontario. The groundhog lives in burrows in pastures. Burrows have openings from 20-30 cm across and can be 1.8 meters deep to 10 meters long. They hibernate below ground in hedgerows or woods rather than the pasture burrows. Mating occurs in the spring. A single litter of 4-5 young is born in April or early May. The young disperse after about 2 months to live a solitary life. Groundhogs will usually enter into hibernation by October.
They feed on green vegetation and forage crops such as clover, alfalfa, and green vegetables such as beans. They are most active in the early morning and late afternoon. They are sun-loving animals, often sunning themselves on the dirt mound in front of the burrow entrance. They are excellent swimmers and climbers. On occasion they can be seen scanning the horizon from the top of a fence post. If the pasture they occupy is disturbed, they will often relocate to an adjacent field. Groundhogs are beneficial in moderate numbers, by contributing to aeration and turning over subsoil for transformation into topsoil. Vacant burrows can be used by other mammals such as rabbits, mice, voles, weasels, skunks, and foxes if enlarged.
