Chipmunks are similar to squirrels in the sense that they can cause a lot more damage than their small stature would suggest. They are capable of massive structural damage and are talented climbers, so they're able to access whatever parts of your yard and home they want to. They cause a lot of damage to landscapes and homes, so if you suspect a chipmunk is wreaking havoc on your property and posing a risk to the inside of your home, call Critter Control of Dayton today or leave your message here.
get rid of chipmunks
- When basic chipmunk deterrents and exclusion methods fail, Critter Control of Dayton can step in to save the day. Waiting for chipmunks to leave is a mistake that only allows infestations to grow larger.
- Chipmunks favor woodlands for nesting locations, but are also found darting for cover among suburban and rural environments. Chipmunk burrows are usually situated near small shrubs or manmade structures. When the weather gets cold, the rodents will retreat underground until the warmer weather returns. While underground, chipmunks will feed on the stored food gathered throughout the previous warm months.
- Chipmunks are occasionally spotted inside of buildings, but do prefer outdoor environments. Chipmunks need things like shrubs and bushes that will provide cover. This cover cannot be typically found in houses. Their favored food sources, like seeds, nuts, vegetables, roadkill, and small amphibians, will attract the animals to your yard though. Chipmunks will also see pet food as a viable food option for the hungry animals on your property.
Chipmunks will eat flower bulbs, dig for seeds, and consume various vegetables. If their population size is left unchecked, chipmunks can damage structures with their burrowing habits. Foundations, patios, and sidewalks are at risk with a large population problem. Chipmunks are also known to steal bird eggs, negatively impacting local bird populations.
