North American Groundhog
Trapping groundhogs is necessary for anyone that has a residential or commercial property. If a groundhog has decided to move onto your property you'll know it. Groundhogs, sometimes known as woodchucks are the largest member of the squirrel family and can remove up to 700 lbs of soil to complete their burrow complex of 20-25 feet. Groundhog damage ranges from burrows built underneath sidewalks or support walls of a home that could lead to collapse to total decimation of gardens. Farm machinery can also be damaged and buildings undermined by their extensive burrows. People and livestock run the risk of broken legs by inadvertently stumbling into an entrance hole or burrow built near the surface. Groundhogs are voracious eaters and can wipe out large areas of crops and gardens plots in no time.

Another good reason to get rid of groundhogs is that other animals like rabbits, raccoons and skunks make use of abandoned groundhog burrows and that can  bring a whole new set of problem pests to deal with. Trapping groundhogs is relatively easy and almost anyone can do it.

If you need to get rid of groundhogs (woodchucks) without shooting or poisoning them, these humane, live animal traps are the way to go. Groundhog traps like those below are safe, efficient and effective. Aside from the damage to property and plants, groundhogs are harmless to humans so killing them because they are a threat is no excuse not to try and capture them alive and relocate them to a more desirable area.

When Jarrod's Affordable Wildlife Eviction is called to get rid of groundhogs at a farm, home or business we only use a live capture groundhog traps.

Havahart groundhog traps are perfect for the beginner or weekend gardener who only has occasional need to remove and relocate problem nuisance animals. The best part is that it can be set with only one hand. Releasing the animal is also done using one hand making it safer than ever for anyone to use.

To set, simply pull back on the handle and the door swings up and locks into place. Once the trap has been sprung the handle reverts to it's original position and another pull of the handle raises the door to release the animal.

The galvanized wire mesh gives superior corrosion resistance for long life and the high tensile steel adds additional strength without the extra weight. Mesh is 1" x 1" and is rolled and smoothed on cage edges and corners to keep animals safe. The solid metal hand guard protects your fingers and hands from animals in the trap while transporting to the release site.

The trigger pan is sensitive allowing for quick, safe captures and the heavy duty, galvanized door is reinforced and locks securely preventing escapes.

The carry handle on top is made from rigid plastic and is ergonomically designed to keep the trap away from the body while carrying.

Includes instructions and baiting tips. Comes fully assembled and is ready to use right out of the box. Made in the USA. 1 year warranty against manufacturer's defects.

"Oh baby, this thing is schweeet. I had a wannabe feral killing birds by my feeder and tromping all our flowers. Bought this CATraption and used some cat food with beef pate in it. One hour later, and slam. Two bluebirds were yakking loud and perched on the fence near the trap. It was if they were mocking the cat.

We took a long, long, long drive. I had to get gas on the way back type of long drive. When released that cat took off like a cheetah. It was still running a 100 yards later"-- Reviewer: CAT0
