ANSWER:

Possible causes range from insects to moles to armadillos. A trained Trutech technician will be able to identify the culprit after the site analysis.


QUESTION:

I found a hole in the ground and need to know if I have a problem with rabbits or some other type of animal.
– Dedham, MA

ANSWER:

Trutech can help. We will immediately know what type of animal it is based upon our inspection. Rabbit holes and burrows typically have much of their fur nearby. Rabbits will shed and use their fur to make a soft nesting area for their babies. The holes are usually baseball- to softball-sized. If the hole is larger, more like a volleyball or basketball, it is a groundhog hole.

Regardless of what type of animal you are dealing with, Trutech will solve the issue. These burrows can destroy landscaping and cause injury to people who step in them. It’s important to remove the animals causing the damage and have the holes properly filled in. The process of identifying the pest and addressing the problem through a trapping session typically takes about 5-7 days.
