Overview

Marmots are large rodents that often become nuisances to gardeners, farmers, and homeowners due to their appetites and burrowing habits. The yellow-bellied marmot is the most common species in the United States and a close relative of the woodchuck. Also known as rockchucks or whistle pigs, yellow-bellied marmots are social creatures that live in communities of 10 to 20 individuals.

During the spring and summer, the animals undergo a period of hyperphagia, a feeding frenzy designed to fatten the marmots so they can survive the coming winter. By huddling together in underground burrows lined with hay or grass, marmots hibernate for up to 200 days at a time, easily spending half of their 13 to 15 years of life asleep.

Critter Control did a great job of removing a raccoon from my attic and sealing the hole to close off access. The animal was inactive for a few days due to a snowstorm and a cold snap, but they persisted and were successful in trapping the coon within a day of when the weather warmed up. They also took care of a separate problem with squirrels. VERY satisfied with the work, and especially impressed by the competence and capability of Steve Waldner who did all the work. Hope that I don't need to use them again, but won't hesitate to hire them if the need arises. Dick H Okemos
