Groundhogs often create their burrows under or around decks, patios, porches, & foundations. Damages can be concerning at times when groundhogs are digging around foundations in particular. With the extensive tunneling systems groundhogs create, the presence of burrows near a foundation can potentially cause water leakage through the foundations cement. In addition to damages around the walls of foundations, groundhogs will also chew threw underground wiring & irrigation systems.
