What Should You Do About Chipmunks?

While chipmunks may be cute to look at outside, they are not a pest you want to have in your home. If you believe you have rodents in your home, it could be that you are dealing with chipmunks in your attic or making a home in certain parts of your house.

Are you looking for rodent treatment to help you deal with chipmunks? Here's what you can do.

Protect Your Garden

If you have delicious food in your garden, you might be inadvertently attracting chipmunks. You can cover your garden with mesh or something similar to stop attracting the rodents to the garden where they can dine on delicious fruits and veggies, for instance.

Stop Feeding Birds

If you put out food for birds or other animals, now is also a time to assess how this might be welcoming rodents into your home. Removing attractive features from your yard may be the key to getting chipmunks to move to greener pastures.

Install Repellent Devices

You might consider installing a device designed to repel all sorts of pests. Chipmunks may be put off by a device that makes a loud sound or annoys them with a bit of water spray. Chipmunks may avoid your yard or decide that perhaps your house is not the perfect place to create a nest.

Seal Up the Holes

If you have holes in your home, even very small holes, you might find that these invite pests into your home. It is important that you keep parts of your home sealed off to avoid chipmunks getting inside to have their babies.

A pest professional can ensure that they seal the holes without trapping pests inside. A thorough inspection of the area can provide a lot of insight into the parts of the home where rodents may be working their way in. It is often better to count on a professional to avoid the risk of trapping chipmunks.

Call a Professional for Humane Treatment

In some cases, you may already have chipmunks inside your home. If this is the case, you may need to have them physically removed from your property. This is something a professional can do humanely.

Professionals will trap the chipmunks safely and then take them elsewhere. Relocation prevents the chipmunks from simply returning to your home. Professionals with rodent treatment experience understand the safest legal ways to remove these pests and the risks they pose.
