CHIPMUNK REMOVAL SERVICES
Chipmunks are cute little critters to most people until their yard is infested with them. Chipmunks cause a lot of damage to people’s lawns, landscaping, garden, and areas right next to houses. These little guys love to burrow and dig all-around your lawn, as well as eat your plants. Since most people don’t like their hard work in their yard to go to waste, they want to get rid of chipmunks. Continue reading to find out more about the damage chipmunks cause, how to prevent them, and how to get rid of them.
What problems do chipmunks cause?
They seem so little and innocent, but do not let them fool you. They enjoy nothing more than burrowing and digging around for both shelter and food. They will dig burrows right up next to your home, garage, and any other structure you have on your property. If you let them dig enough, it will start to undermine your foundation’s stability, which is not good at all. In addition to all of the underground damage they cause, they also destroy things above ground.
Chipmunks love to eat young plants, old plants, and everything in between. They will ravage gardens if you let them stay around long enough. If you have a vegetable garden or crops, they will chew through this quickly as well. Your yard will have many holes in it as they scavenge for food and dig little shelters in the ground. It is important to get rid of these little critters before they cause serious harm to your property’s foundation, garden, and yard.
How can I prevent chipmunks?
One of the ways that people sometimes try to prevent chipmunks from coming onto their property is by putting up a fence. This is hard, as chipmunks are excellent climbers of most materials. You have to really brainstorm ways to make a chipmunk-proof fence. One of the more common ways that people try to prevent chipmunks is by sprinkling any kind of hot pepper or intense spice around their lawn and garden. This can get costly, as you will have to do it quite frequently. If you start to notice chipmunks, it is important to take care of them quickly by trapping them.
How do I trap chipmunks?
The best way to humanely trap chipmunks is by using a small cage trap. Cage traps are great for chipmunks, as they are curious animals that can be easily lured into the cage. Once you have caught one, you can take them somewhere else and release them. You will know you have caught them all when you stop seeing fresh holes and plants eaten. It is better to let professional wildlife control experts handle your chipmunk problem though.The best way to humanely trap chipmunks is by using a small cage trap.
