WHAT DAMAGES DO BURROWING ANIMALS DO TO HOMES AND FARMS

Burrowing animals such as moles, gophers, and groundhogs can cause damage to homes and farms in several ways. They can burrow under foundations, patios, and sidewalks, causing them to become unstable and potentially collapse. They can also damage irrigation systems, water lines, and electrical cables by burrowing through them. In farms, burrowing animals can damage crops by digging up roots and eating them, or by creating tunnels that can cause soil erosion and waterlogging. Additionally, their burrows can create tripping hazards for livestock and humans. It is important to take measures to control burrowing animals to prevent damage to homes and farms.
