Marmot Removal Strategies
Marmots are large rodents with large claws and brown fur the size that grow to about the size of a housecat. Marmots are known for their ability to dig long tunnels and burrows beneath the earth. When they dig these burrows, marmots can damage your lawn, garden, and even your home. From September to May typically, marmots hibernate underneath the ground.

Signs a Marmot is on Your Property
Marmots are large rodents who generally enjoy living in high elevations and mountainous regions across the United States, Europe, and Asia. Common marmot species have brown or red fur with yellow stomachs and are sometimes called whistle pigs due to their loud, high-pitched vocalizations. Woodchucks, also known as groundhogs, are among the 14 species found north of the equator. Looking for marmot tracks can be a good way to identify their presence in a yard or garden.
Dangers of Marmot Infestation
As avid burrowers, marmots cause extensive damage to properties in search of food and shelter. They are detrimental to the agricultural industry and leave landscapes looking mowed as a result of their voracious feeding. Additionally, marmots carry diseases like plague, which can be harmful to both humans and pets. Finally, various parasites such as ticks, fleas, and mites may live on marmots and be transferred to pets.
Humane Marmot Removal & Control Strategies
Entry into property
Easy access to their favorite foods attract marmots to private properties where they then establish burrows. While they may den under patios and decks, the rodents are not known to enter homes or buildings for any reason.
Trapping & Removal
Much like any wild animal, cornered marmots scratch, claw, and bite in order to escape perceived danger. Since the rodents also transmit dangerous diseases, individuals should contact our trained wildlife removal specialists when facing marmot problems. Trutech professionals can take care of marmot infestations safely and humanely.
Prevention & Exclusion
The easiest way to stop marmots from invading yards, fields, and gardens is to erect fences around the attractive areas. As the rodents are adept climbers and exceptional diggers, fences should be buried at least a foot into the ground and stand at least four feet high. Electrifying fences reinforce their usefulness.
