  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Washington'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 Washington'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 Thurston 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 Tumwater animal control for wildlife issues.

Tumwater Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some problems caused by groundhog digging?

Groundhogs are smallish rodents that are well known for their proclivity for digging. They dig elaborate burrows to live in. They have been known to move as much as 700 pounds of dirt when making these burrows. This is cause for concern if the earth that is being moved comes from your property. They prefer to live in wooded, dry areas that are close to a food source. However, with humans encroaching on these areas, they have no choice but to move into more urban areas. If you live in an area with soft, dry sand, you will attract these critters if you have any sort of crop or vegetable garden.

Digging under crops

Groundhogs are known to dig under crops in an attempt to burrow close to their source of food. As they eat up to a third of their body weight in a day, it is important for them to know where to find food. As the soil surrounding crops or vegetable garden have been toiled and are relatively soft and loose, it is easy to dig in. While digging under crops they can cause major damage to the root systems of these plants. This may cause the plants to die. It could also cause the whole crop to collapse in on itself if the burrowing underneath is extensive enough.

Digging under houses

This is a major concern for homeowners. Groundhogs can dig tunnels of up to 8 to 66 feet long. They have multiple entrances and consist of two chambers. One is for sleeping and the other is used as a lavatory. This is an immense amount of removed ground from under a house. It can cause damage to the foundation if the tunnels collapse. Groundhogs are also very fond of chewing. They can easily chew through cables and wires that are located in your home. Apart from the financial implications of repairing these is the danger that it could cause a fire.

Digging under porches

Porches are structures that are reliant on the ground underneath in order to stay up. They usually do not have strong foundations and collapse more frequently when the stability underneath is compromised. If a groundhog removes too much sand from underneath your porch it will not be able to stay up. It could collapse and have major financial implications. If it collapses while people are on it you are in danger of getting seriously hurt.
