Animal hole

Asked August 18, 2019, 10:52 PM EDT

We found this large hole next to our house foundation. We noticed the white foam pieces as well and are wondering what we should do.

We cannot say for sure but this looks like it may be a groundhog hole. The white pieces looks like it may be insulation. When dealing with wildlife there are no easy answers.

An option includes trapping the animal. You can tackle this yourself or hire a wildlife control cooperator. Please contact the Nuisance Wildlife Information Line at
