  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Maryland'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 Maryland'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 Baltimore county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Randallstown animal control for wildlife issues.

Randallstown Wildlife Removal Tip: Where do groundhogs live? Do more groundhogs live in urban areas or wild areas?

Groundhogs are part of the species Marmota monax. They are also called woodchucks or whistle-pigs. The name will depend on the area in which you live. Groundhogs are highly adaptable and can live in a variety of habitats. However, they prefer to live in wooded areas. This allows them to burrow freely and as long as they have a sufficient supply of food they will return to the same place year after year. Groundhogs are vegetarian and need to eat about a third of their body weight per day.

Natural habitat

Groundhogs prefer areas where the soil is relatively dry. You wonít find them burrowing in swaps. They need their homes to be dry and warm. They are able to swim and climb trees but donít build their nest above ground. They dig elaborate tunnels in which to live. They have more than one entrance to their homes in case they need to escape unseen.

Urban areas

Although they prefer wooded areas they can easily live in more densely populated areas. Groundhogs are being pushed out of their natural habitat by people. The more natural land we build on, the less place there is for wild animals. This has led to large populations of rodents in our cities. Groundhogs need a vast supply of fresh vegetables daily. Therefore, they will seldom be found in busy city centers. They can more easily adapt to their surroundings if they are in an area that resembles their natural habitat.

Rural areas

Rural areas provide a more desired habitat. There will usually be more place to burrow and they will be able to obtain food more easily. They will usually build their burrows close to fields where food is grown.


Groundhogs hibernate for 75 to 175 days a year, depending on where they live. This means that they will need to find a place that is safe from flooding. They will wake up every few days before going to sleep again. They will plug their burrow behind them to keep the cold out.

Groundhogs live well in urban areas as they have no natural predators like they would in the wild. They only thing that they need to be concerned with in cities is burrowing in the wrong personís yard or not looking both ways before they cross the street.
