Chipmunks are everywhere it seems these days. Mild winters of late has allowed the chipmunk population to explode and now run rampant around your home. They most often live in foundations and rock walls, under patios and driveways, and in the ground along the home’s foundation. On occasion they can also find their way into the living area.
Chipmunks are a host to ticks and other parasites and best kept away from the house. They are also quite destructive in the garden – digging up bulbs, eating root systems of bushes/shrubs and can create erosion issues.
Humane trapping and thinning out the chipmunk population will greatly reduce your exposure to them, and they damage they do.
