Chipmunks are small, ground-dwelling squirrels that are typically 5-6 inches long, with a tail 3-4 inches long. They have 2 tan and 5 blackish stripes lengthwise down their back, and 2 tan and 2 brownish stripes on each side of their face. They do not completely hibernate throughout the winter, but will rely upon their cache of food stored throughout the summer and may sometimes be seen on warm, sunny days throughout the winter. They typically emerge from hibernation in early March.
Distribution: Chipmunks are found statewide in a variety of habitats. They are especially common in urban areas where bird feeders are found.
Reproduction: Chipmunks breed twice a year and will have 2-5 young in each litter, one born in late spring and one in late summer. Four to five young are born in April or May. Young will appear outside their den when they are only 4-6 weeks old and will start to find their own territory when they are just 6-8 weeks old.
Food Habits: Chipmunks eat a variety of foods, primarily grains, nuts, berries, seeds, mushrooms, insects, and even carrion. They regularly climb trees in the fall to find nuts, fruits, and seeds. They will also eat bird eggs and young birds when available. Chipmunks cache or store food in their dens by stuffing it into their cheeks.
Critter Removal is AWESOME!! Would use them again in a heart beat! Reasonably priced, Great service both in office and technicians ( Way to Nate!) Just a great RELIABLE company. A++
They did what they said they would do. Is great job.
We were dealing with a pretty bad squirrel problem. They were causing damage to my soffits and gutters getting into their nest in our attic. We had a previous company come out, insist it was a raccoon and simply put a cage in our bushes. Meanwhile the squirrels continued to do their damage, leaving their route into our attic crawl space wide open. About 4 weeks later and having to listen to constant scratching and chewing from these squirrels, he simply collected his empty cage without follow up, and having to pay upfront first ( 500 + dollars for a cage and a peanut butter smear) Luckily after an email asking to maybe do something more, they just sent a refund. So we were back to square one, I called critter control and they came out the next day. They installed a one way door in the hole they were using to access their nest. In and out in about 30 minutes. Payment wasn’t due until after the issue was handled. We saw immediate results. In less than a day our squirrel friends had moved on to a new home somewhere not in our attic. Friendly, fast, and professional. They may not be the least affordable option, but the results were fast and we were very happy
