Q.how can i get rid of woodchucks that have made a home under my deck?
My deck is closed in and we cannot see under it unless I pick up all the boards. This past month, I notice my foundation in my attached sunroom has shifted, causing the baseboard to be 2" higher than the floor in one corner. Could this be caused by them and how can I get rid of these awful critters. I am sure they are in hibernation now, so can I set a kill trap at each entrance hoping they come out in the spring and enter into the trap.
A.We apologize, but we are unable to give you a definitive answer. It may be possible that the woodchucks are lifting your structure but we cannot say that it is true without inspection. We definitely recommend that you hire a professional to at least inspect the structure to determine the cause of your structural problem. You can set traps out although, like you said, they will not be caught until after hibernation is over. You can also use a smoke treatment, but you will have to vacate the house and ventilate upon return. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
