All About Chipmunks - Facts

 

Chipmunks are cute little creatures, but when they are ruining landscapes by digging holes around your lawn and garden, these rodents can become quite a nuisance. What's more, they may also enter your home in search of shelter.  Chipmunk control in the form of live traps or repellents is essential to prevent damage to your yard and home.

 

 

 

 

Chipmunk Facts

 

Chipmunk is the common name for any small, ground-dwelling squirrel-like rodent species. They are found in eastern portions of Canada and the United States. Critter Library - Chipmunk facts, chipmunk control, humane chipmunk control

 

Though chipmunks are commonly depicted with their paws up to the mouth, eating peanuts, or more famously, with cheeks bulging, they eat a more diverse range of foods than just nuts.

 

 

 

 

 

Chipmunk Habitat

Chipmunks make their nests underground, in stone walls, or near fallen logs.

 

Several chipmunk families will share one burrow. The burrows typically have a long entrance with several chambers for food and sleeping.

 

 

 

 

 

Chipmunk Reproduction

 

There are two breeding seasons; spring and summer.  Female chipmunks will typically have 4-5 babies per season. At such a rate of reproduction, a few chipmunks can quickly turn into many, causing an even bigger problem unless you apply the proper control methods.

 

 

 

 

 

Chipmunk Diet

 

Chipmunks typically feast on nuts, berries, seeds, and grains. Critter Library - Chipmunk facts-diet, chipmunk controlThey cause problems when they eat tender plant shoots and leaves.

 

In autumn, many chipmunks begin to stockpile these goods in their burrows, hoarding for the winter months.

 

 

 

 

 

Chipmunk Damage Identification

 

Look closely when identifying chipmunk damage - it can often be mistaken for that of squirrels and voles.

 

Chipmunks typically dig, looking for roots and tubers. They also eat young shoots and leaves. You will often find chipmunks gathering seeds from underneath birdfeeders.

 

Chipmunk control is the key to preventing chipmunk damage.
