The Eastern Chipmunk can adapt to human environments easily and usually by choice. The chipmunk adapts easily due to the abundance of food and shelter. Humans provide food sources such as bird feeders or squirrel feeders that are replenished regularly. Urban landscapes provide attractive nuts, buds, and fruits from trees that chipmunks will favor. Once a chipmunk has found a prevalent food source it will look for a nesting site that is relatively close to that food source. In most instances, structures around your home become the nesting site due to increases in urbanization in chipmunk inhabited areas. The chipmunk will look for an area around your home that poses the least resistance. Rotten stumps, debris piles, concrete slabs, driveways, and stone walls are a few locations for their den site. Once this burrow is established they will start to build their nest. As the chipmunk population grows around your home, so will the damage created by their burrows. Extensive burrows under concrete slabs, driveways, and stone walls will cause costly repairs due to settling from these structures. As long as we continue to urbanize, cut down native nesting trees, and provide an abundance of food to the chipmunks, they will continue to adapt to human environments and pose a threat to homes and human health.
Single door cage traps and snap traps may be used to effectively reduce chipmunk populations.
If Lyme disease from ticks on chipmunks is a concern. We can set tick boxes to attract the local population of chipmunks and other rodents to treat them with a pesticide that will kill the ticks on their body. The pesticide will not harm or kill the rodents.
The option of organic or inorganic pesticides may also be recommended to help eliminate the tick population on your property.
