Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Columbus, OH

Skunks in Columbus

Because the animals thrive in both warm and cold weather, skunk populations have increased in Columbus, OH. These nocturnal creatures are active all year and do not hibernate in winter. They live near fencerows and thick brush. The pests also create dens under houses, sheds, and porches.

When hungry, Ohio skunks raid garbage cans and dig up lawns in search of grubs. If startled, they can spray a pungent musk at targets up to 15 feet away. The skunk mating season is in early spring, and litters often contain around 10 offspring. Skunks can transmit rabies through bites or scratches.

Woodchucks

Woodchucks annoy Central Ohio homeowners by eating from lawns and gardens. They dig large holes in yards that can measure 12 inches wide. These woodchuck burrows are tripping hazards and may cause the ground to collapse under a lawnmower.

In the Columbus area, woodchucks prefer living in sandy soil but are still common in many neighborhoods. When digging their tunnel systems, the pests leave large dirt mounds on the surface. In addition, woodchuck dens beneath homes often weaken foundations and cause expensive damage.
