How Can I Prevent Chipmunk Infestations?
The best way to avoid having a chipmunk problem on your property is to perform prevention and exclusion techniques. There are changes you can make in your yard to make it less appealing to chipmunks.
- Avoid planting bulbs that attract chipmunks
- Remove piles of rocks and wood as chipmunks use them for shelter
- Create an area of plant-free gravel around the perimeter of your yard
- Place mesh hardware cloth around your garden
- Keep trees, plants, and shrubs trimmed
- Avoid leaving animal food outside, including pet food and bird food
Chipmunks are attracted to yards that provide plenty of opportunities for nesting and feeding. By keeping your yard clean and making it unattractive to chipmunks, you can both reduce the existing number of them on your property and prevent more chipmunks from finding their way into your yard.
Can Chipmunks Damage My Property?
While they are a nuisance, chipmunks aren’t known to cause significant damage to properties. Once in your yard, they can cause light structural damage and chew up plants, fruits, vegetables, and flower bulbs in your garden. They dig burrows in the dirt around patios, stairs, walls, or even the foundation of a home. These holes are typically 2-3 inches wide and 2-3 feet deep and are not marked by mounds of dirt near entry points.
Can Chipmunks Transmit Diseases?
Chipmunks can contract diseases after hosting infected fleas or ticks. They can transmit these diseases through their saliva, so if you are ever bitten by a chipmunk, it is important to seek medical care. Chipmunks can transmit Colorado tick fever, the plague, rabies, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Symptoms of diseases transmitted by chipmunks include pneumonia, flu-like symptoms, rashes, and possibly even death.
The Greenix Approach to Chipmunk Control
When it comes to chipmunk control, our service professionals always perform our premium rodent baiting service.
This service involves:
- Performing a thorough inspection of your entire property
- Locating chipmunk burrows
- Placing a minimum of 5 bait boxes throughout your property
- Checking bait boxes every 60 days and replacing bait when necessary
Our bait boxes are made of cement and contain a specially formulated bait that attracts chipmunks. Once consumed, this bait acts as a blood thinner, which sends chipmunks away from your property in search of a new water source. Each sturdy bait box is locked up and our professionals are the only ones with a key, so you never have to worry about children or beloved pets coming into contact with the bait.
