Woodchucks, often called whistling pigs or groundhogs, are herbivores that feed mostly on grass and other herbaceous materials, such as those found in agricultural fields and gardens. They may be a nuisance when they invade these areas. They migrate to certain regions, and once they’ve established themselves there, it becomes progressively difficult to eradicate them. Live trapping may be an effective method for getting rid of them since they are not particularly gregarious creatures. You might also try erecting a fence or using scarecrows or other forms of animal intimidation. Diurnal animals, such as woodchucks, are active throughout the day looking for food. They enter a state of hibernation throughout the colder months, and during the month of March, they often give birth to a litter of two to four young woodchucks. Around the middle of July, the young people go to begin their own lives.



Place scarecrows around your garden or yard, and move them frequently. Woodchucks are cautious around people, so these decoys may work.

Woodchucks, also known as whistle pigs or groundhogs, enjoy dining on grass and other herbaceous materials — like your crop field or garden. They move into these areas and become increasingly difficult to get rid of once they’ve settled. Since they’re not very social, live-trapping can be a good way to get rid of them. You can also try fencing or use deterrents such as scarecrows. Woodchucks are diurnal, searching out food during the day. They hibernate during the winter and a litter of two to four woodchucks is usually produced around March. The young leave to start their independent lives around mid-July.
