    Woodchucks are often considered nuisance wildlife to humans and vast amounts of damage are credited to the woodchuck. The burrows and tunnels create problems for landowners. Their feeding habits can give landowners headaches, as woodchucks will browse on vegetation in flower and vegetable gardens, and also gnaw and chew on trees and woody structures. Woodchucks can cause extensive damage in a short period of time.

    Woodchuck Facts

    Woodchuck Habitats

    The woodchuck is commonly referred as a "ground hog." Woodchucks range from the eastern states to the Great Plains, and throughout Canada. The woodchuck habitats include forested areas, decks, sheds, patio slabs, gardens, rock walls, and open farmlands surrounded by wooded and/or brushy areas. They are excellent diggers and can dig under decks, sheds, patio slabs and rock walls.

    Woodchuck Behavior & Habits

    Woodchucks are active in the daytime, are solitary, and are occasionally found climbing trees. Woodchucks have 2-6 young annually. Woodchucks are strictly vegetarians that forage on fruits, grasses and plants in flower and vegetable gardens. They hibernate from late October to March or April depending on their geographic location.
