Management of Woodchucks

Instructor: Stephen Vantassel

Woodchucks are also known as whistle pigs or groundhogs. Woodchucks are basically the building contractors for many animals in the wildlife kingdom because of the holes they dig. Many animals reoccupy woodchuck dens after they're abandoned or after the woodchuck is eliminated. This course will discuss the control and management of woodchucks. 

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the biology, habitat, and common signs of woodchucks.
  • Explain the different options available for pesticide control of woodchucks.
  • Describe the non-pesticide control options for woodchucks.
