Chipmunks are Small, Foraging Rodents
Chipmunks are related to squirrels, but there are many differences between these two members of the rodent family. Chipmunks are small creatures, typically less than a foot in length and weighing less than six ounces. Their fur is usually red or brown, with a series of pale and dark stripes on their backs. They generally also feature two brown stripes on their faces, and they have pouched cheeks, to carry their food back to their burrows.
They forage for their food, eating berries, nuts, and seeds, as well as insects and sometimes baby birds. However, if it is available, they will supplement their diet with food remnants, such as potato chips and bread. They will also munch on grains and vegetables from gardens. At the start of autumn, chipmunks will start stockpiling food for winter, and they will remain in their burrows throughout those cold months. They are easy to identify by their “bark,” too, which sounds like a high-pitched whistle.
They Can Damage Your Home and Your Lawn
A chipmunk can do considerable damage in your yard. It can eat your bulbs, fruit, and young plants, ruining your landscaping and your garden. Its burrowing habits can also be costly, as it will dig under stairs, sidewalks, and structures, causing considerable damage. It will also be quite a nuisance if it gets into your home or your garage. It can tear into your garbage bags while searching for food, and if it takes up residence inside your attic, it may chew on electrical wiring, causing a fire hazard. Chipmunks also carry diseases and may carry other pests, such as fleas and ticks, into your home, too.
