Chipmunk Control, Trapping & Removal Services
We can rid you of Chipmunk problems safely and efficiently
Traditionally described as small critters who scamper along the ground stuffing their cheeks full with food, chipmunks are rarely considered pests. However, the rodents constantly search for food and objects to gnaw on, which leads to problems when they inhabit urban areas. Although the animals are very tiny, chipmunks are capable of causing serious damage to lawns, gardens, electrical wires, and structural foundations.

Often thought of as miniature squirrels, chipmunks have small pointed heads, four legs, and claws on their feet. Only reaching about 6 inches in length, the rodents are hard to spot. Eastern chipmunks are brown with stripes of white above and below their eyes. They also have white and black stripes running down their backs. Western chipmunks look very similar. However, their stripes are more defined and their fur appears reddish-brown. Both species of chipmunks have bushy tails that add an additional 3 inches to their overall length.
As they are omnivorous creatures, chipmunks keep extremely versatile diets. The rodents eat mostly nuts, seeds, fruits, grass, and other types of vegetation. Chipmunks will also consume small animals, such as frogs and worms, in addition to unattended bird eggs.
Chipmunks generally like wooded areas that offer plenty of cover from predators. They especially like to burrow under rocks, logs, and brush piles. Chipmunks are widespread throughout the Nearctic region and occupy both urban and suburban environments where trees are present. We most commonly remove chipmunks from properties in Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Louisiana, and South Carolina.
