Groundhogs or Woodchucks live in open plains around trees and in holes underground, hence the name "groundhog".  Groundhogs are predominately vegetarians that eat flowers, leaves, crops and other vegetation.  They have flat hands and rounded claws for digging and climbing. They are considered the largest ground squirrel in Michigan.   
 
Nuisance Problems:  Groundhogs burrow in and out of hill tops creating landslides and erosion.  They also make tunnels throughout rock walls causing rocks to come lose and tumble down.  Groundhogs make dens under sidewalks causing them to collapse.  They pester dogs and cats. They live under decks, porches and sidewalks.
