In addition to ravaging your garden and eating seeds and fruits from trees and shrubs, chipmunks can cause structural damage to your property. When these rodents burrow near the patio, stairs, retaining walls or foundation, chipmunk control is important because the damage can weaken these structures.
Eastern chipmunks — found here in Missouri — are most active and visible during spring and summer when they’ve emerged from their winter burrows. If bitten by an infected flea or tick, chipmunks can carry disease and transmit that disease through their saliva. Because of this, it’s important to not touch a chipmunk – alive or dead.
The best course of action is to call a professional to completely eliminate these rodents from your property. Pioneer has the know-how and experience needed to safely use trapping mechanisms and repellents for chipmunk control. Contact us today to begin!
