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 was very responsive and professional. The issue lasted a bit longer than we would have liked, but the technicians were very prompt to respond and make sure things were getting taken care of. I would recommend Critter Control for anyone with wildlife issues!

Removed 2 possums and 2 raccoons from the yard. Initially the lady that took my call told me feces removal was part of the job. The website states feces removal is apart of the job. But after the $200 consultation and then after removing the animals ($75 apiece) they say they don’t do feces removal unless it’s in the house. At this point I was mad and looking to rate them poorly. But they’re nice and removed 4 animals successfully. Also, inter personnel communication could be better. Seems like one technician didn’t tell another an update on the plans. We were fortunate to have a camera security system set up so we knew what we were dealing with critter wise.
