At Shield's we like to keep groundhog control simple. We understand no one wants these little critters crawling around their home. groundhogs can be a great pain to any home owner as they're known for building tunnels, making holes, and making foundations week along with other problems.  All things that make them a bad bet to have around your home.

Signs to look for:



It can sometimes be hard to find droppings from a groundhog, as they are usually in the grass. However, if you find droppings, then you're sure to have a groundhog living somewhere close by. 

Large Holes

Groundhogs are known for building quite large holes. Holes dug from a groundhog can be rather dangerous. These holes can destroy equipment like lawn mowers or tractors, and in worse cases injure someone or a pet.


Along with holes, you might start to see random mounds of dirt. Often all the dirt from the hole they dug will build up at the top of the hole.

Visual Sighting

Along with holes and mounds that you might have been seeing you may see a groundhog poke its head in and out of a particular hole. Groundhogs are known to have multiple holes, but if you see a groundhog, you know they're making holes on your property.

Had an issue with bats in my attic. They sent Jim out to inspect my house. I couldn't be happier. I was about to sell the house and the home inspector found the bat droppings. Shields came out quick and Jim's understanding of bats was amazing. They helped me from start to finish.
