Kansas City Groundhog Removal
Groundhogs are mainly solitary animals that just love to dig around peoples gardens, foundations, and under sheds and barns. Groundhog removal is a process where we use traps in order to capture and remove these nuisance animals effectively.
The average groundhog is 20 inches long and normally weighs from 12 to 15 pounds. Groundhogs are covered with coarse grayish fur tipped with brown or sometimes dull red. They have short ears, a short tail, short legs, and are surprisingly quick. Their jaws are exceptionally strong.
A groundhog's diet consists of lots of greens, fruits, and vegetables and very little water.
A groundhog can whistle when it is alarmed. Groundhogs also whistle in the spring when they begin courting. Groundhogs are one of the few animals that really hibernate. Hibernation is not just a deep sleep. It is actually a deep coma, where the body temperature drops to a few degrees above freezing, the heart barely beats, the blood scarcely flows, and breathing nearly stops.
Young Groundhogs are usually born in mid-April or May, and by July they are able to go out on their own. The size of the litter is 4 to 9. A baby groundhog is called a kit or a cub.
A groundhog's life span is normally 6 to 8 years.
