Chipmunks are small, ground-dwelling members of the squirrel (Sciuridae) family known for their burrowing habits and love of nuts. Despite their size, chipmunks can cause significant damage to homes, yards, and farms.


Though chipmunks are small, they can be quite destructive - especially when burrowing near a home's foundation.

Here are some signs of chipmunk damage:

  • structural or foundational damage from chipmunk burrows

  • holes in lawn or garden from digging for plant roots

  • seed piles underneath bird feeders

  • uprooted bulbs

  • chipmunk tracks: tiny prints with four toes in the front and five in the back (front and hind feet are generally reversed)
