How to get rid of Groundhogs

Asked October 13, 2017, 1:08 AM EDT

My bro found a groundhog burrow hole near his walkout basement door. The family has occasionally seen the animal entered/exited that hole. My bro and his wife are afraid that those groundhogs damage their foundation, or even enter the house. What should they do, how to get rid of those animals? Thanks in advance.
