Woodchucks, also known as groundhogs, may be cute during Groundhog Day, but they are a binge eating rodent capable of wiping out a homeowner’s vegetable garden.

An adult woodchuck eats about 1 to 1.5lbs of vegetation daily. They also burrow, which can result in obnoxious holes popping up throughout your yard or property.

Identifying Woodchucks

Woodchucks hibernate over the winter for 4.5 to 5.5 months, emerging to mate and give birth in the mid-spring. It’s no wonder they are such ravenous eaters during the following months.


  • 4-14lbs
  • Can grow up to 3ft long
  • A squarish, stocky member of the squirrel family
  • Coarse, gray fur
  • Short legs, small ears, claws, and a short, bushy tail

They will eat and gnaw everything from vegetables to flowers, including fruit trees. Some of their favorite foods include:

  • Alfalfa
  • Beans
  • Broccoli
  • Clover
  • Lettuce
  • Peas
  • Soybeans

They dine the most during the early morning and afternoon hours.

Carolina’s Way is wonderful…they have someone out as soon as possible to check the situation. They’re diligent, they’re reasonable. The people are friendly and they clean up. I can’t say enough good things about them.

J Greenwood, Homeowner,

Having a trusted service provider makes things so much easier. I know that they’re going to be there. I know that they are going to show when they are supposed to. I know that they are going to make sure they take care of the problem for me.

I was very impressed with the immediate response/ same day service yesterday, and Kevin was great! So happy were not hearing any more noises in the attic.
