Chipmunks can be cute to look at but can cause major damage if left unchecked. They often excavate burrows with multiple entrances under Chicago area residents stoops. This excavated area helps speed the degradation of the concrete. As the weather changes through the freeze thaw cycle the concrete settles and cracks start to form. Left unchecked this damage can shorten the useful life of concrete stoops and can create a hazard for people. Prevent damage to your stoop today by calling ABC Humane Wildlife.
Chipmunks are colony animals that live in large family groups. They are easily identifiable due to their small size (5-6 inches long) and black stripes on their backs. Chipmunks eat a variety of grains, seeds, and flower bulbs, along with bird and grass seeds. Chipmunks are one of the few Chicago area nuisance wildlife species that hibernate, and are relatively inactive during the winter months.
One of the lesser known problems with Chipmunks is that they are often the prey of Skunks. Chipmunks and skunks are both burrowing mammals that prefer to live under concrete stoops and porches. Skunks are omnivores who often eat chipmunks and then excavate the chipmunks’ burrows and then live under a stoop. This can lead to a smelly surprise for a homeowner. Help prevent chipmunk and skunk problems by calling ABC Humane Wildlife Control today.
