Spring has sprung for most of the country and for those who must deal with varmints and other wildlife species that come out of their winter dens headaches might be on the way. Out of all varmints woodchucks probably create the most Hazardous Risk for airports, industrial parks, golf courses, and other fenced in areas. They can put holes in your fence inviting other animals in, dig tunnels under roadways or runways, increase your predator numbers, and even cause an increase in aircraft strike risk or vehicle collisions (watch your tires). Most woodchucks will share a den until after their litter is born in Mid-April early May then the male will leave and occupy a separate den. Once their young leave the den and spread out in early August you may have a larger problem reducing the numbers inside your airport. Here are a few best practices we found most effective for woodchucks.

I’ve caught & killed a whole lot of woodchucks using a 220 Conibear trap. It may not be pretty or politically correct, but it sure does work!
220 Conibear trap works will. In most cases an instance kill.
Had one burrow under my pole barn backed my truck up and taped a hose to my exhaust pipe , ran truck for 15 minutes chuck dies in burrow never had one back in it again
