  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Kentucky's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Kentucky's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Jefferson county animal services for assistance.

St. Matthews Wildlife Removal Tip: What Is A Groundhog's Natural Diet, And How Does It Get Its Food?

Groundhogs are wild creatures, and they prefer natural diet. Being herbivorous creatures; they often feed on vegetables, fruits, and greeneries. But from past few years; they have shifted to a broad range of habitats, and their diet is also varying accordingly. Their living preferences usually depend upon their diet, and you can find them wandering around yards, meadows, edges or forests, farmlands and fields. You can often observe them eating fruits, grass, flowers, ferns, nuts, crops and foliage. These creatures also love to enjoy a particular taste from several plant species such as sorrel, plantains, dandelion, clover, chickweed, and aster. With such a huge collection of food available in nature, there is no doubt to say that a groundhog can increase several pounds daily.

Some studies also reveal that groundhogs are not actually herbivorous as most people think rather they are omnivorous creatures as they also feed on eggs, young birds, snails, and bugs as well. Groundhogs take help from their front feet to eat food. Like most other rodents, groundhogs also love to chew, and they spend most of their time doing so. Another common habit of groundhogs is digging. They prefer to live in burrows, and they create so many in the area where they live. It means they can also destroy your garden or yard area with their burrows and will spoil the vegetation in the farmlands as well. That is why groundhogs are the biggest nightmare for most farmers and gardeners.

From past few years, the population of groundhogs is increasing in urban areas as they are finding good sources of food all around. They often love to target yards and gardens to get their routine diet, and if space appears cozy, they also create lots of connected burrows underground to live a happy life. Many homeowners are in trouble due to this digging habit of groundhogs as it brings serious risks to their buildings. Groundhogs can chew so many things from your outdoors, and they soon create a favorable environment for their life.

If you live in the groundhog affected area, it is better to make efforts to protect your property from groundhog attacks. Make sure that you install fences around the property, and it must have 5 to 6 inches height above the ground while 12 inches is recommended below the ground so that groundhogs cannot climb or dig inside. Also, make sure that groundhogs do not find favorable conditions to live in your premises. Prefer to spray the grass and bushes from time to time so that groundhogs do not find them attractive. You can also keep hunting dogs at home to scare these creatures away. In case if groundhogs have entered your premises, you can use live cage traps to capture them and later they can be released in a wild area out of the city. In order to get rid of groundhog attacks, you can also take help from professional animal removal company in your city.
