Identify Chipmunk Damage

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)

Fun Facts

  • One tiny chipmunk can gather up to 165 acorns in one day.
  • Chipmunks have pouches inside of their cheeks in which they store food when foraging.
  • The main entrance of a chipmunk burrow can extend up to 20 feet in length.
  • A group of chipmunks is called a scurry. source:

Why you need professional mice exterminators

Very often people don’t realize that they have problems with mice until they face a full-blown infestation. It happens because mice are highly intelligent creatures that can hide and stay unnoticed for a long time.

Mice extermination includes several important stages: tracking down, identifying possible entries and exits and zeroing the nests. If you scare the mice away from your house with one of your hunts they can move to another house, stay there for some time and then come back later. Therefore, to ensure that you will not have recurring mice problems it’s strongly advisable to address a professional comprehensive exterminator.

Of course, you can use mice traps and try to solve the problem by yourself, but an important thing to remember is that proper placement of the trap can only be done when knowing all the entries and exits and tracking the movement of the mice, which is extremely difficult without professional help. Even if the trap works, the problem of getting rid of the remnants remains.

Therefore, it is always safer to call a professional mice control company when dealing with these tiny but intelligent and evasive rodents.

When you should hire a mouse exterminator

Some people would ask for the professional help of exterminators only after a week or two of unsuccessful efforts to get rid of mice. Also, many people will not be concerned after seeing a mouse or two in their basement or attic because mice are small and seem not to cause any trouble. However, the important thing to remember is that mice can carry dangerous bacteria, parasites, and diseases. Moreover, they spread very quickly, because one female mouse is able to give birth to 50-60 mice a year! So, the best thing is to act immediately and not let the small pests infest all your house. source:

Not sure you’re sharing your home with a rodent? One or more of the following are surefire signs:

  • Droppings, typically left behind in kitchen cabinets, pantries, cupboards, drawers, bins, and anywhere else they think they might find food, or where they scurry to avoid predators. Rodents are prolific poopers, so it’s pretty easy to spot if you have an infestation. It’s also not uncommon to see droppings along walls, on top of wall studs or beams, near nests, and in boxes, bags, old furniture, and other objects.
  • Squeaks and other noises. Rodents aren’t what you’d call quiet. If they’re in your house, you’ll hear squeaks, rustling, and scampering sounds as they move about and nest. Noises are often more apparent at night as you’re going to bed and they’re waking up.
  • Urine pools or trails. Rodents are notorious for having weak bladders, and they’ll dribble all over the place. House mice sometimes make things called “urinating pillars,” which are small mounds consisting of grease, dirt, and yes, urine. Sometimes you’ll see tiny drops of urine leading to a mound.
  • Nibble marks on food boxes, food, or containers. These telltale signs are often accompanied by nearby droppings.
  • Nests. Rodents build nests from soft, fuzzy, or warm materials, such as fabric, furniture stuffing, quilt batting, shredded paper, grass, and twigs, and will typically stuff them into sheltered, out-of-the-way places like boxes, cabinets and closets, walls, even the subspace between ceilings and floors. Other possible mouse nest sites include dressers, behind and inside appliances, and machinery, even computer cases — basically, anywhere it’s cozy and warm.
  • Grease marks. Mice can wedge through openings as small as a quarter of an inch in size. As they do, they often leave greasy smears — caused by oil and dirt in their coats — behind. The marks left by mice are fainter than those left by rats. If you find large greasy smears, you should suspect a rat infestation instead.
  • Gnaw marks. Gnawing is a defining characteristic of all rodents. They do it to keep their incisor teeth, which grow continually, in check. Wood is a favorite,but they’ll pretty much chew on whatever suits them. This includes electrical wire, which, as noted in Electrical Fires, makes them a leading cause of structural fires. On wood, newer gnaws are light colored. They turn darker with age. Sometimes you won’t see gnaw marks, but you’ll see what looks like fine wood chips or coarse sawdust, especially along baseboards, door and window frames, and cabinets.
  • Holes in food packaging. Rodents will nibble into anything they can smell, including boxes and bags of pasta, rice, beans, and grain products. Dog food bags are also prime-time rodent magnets, and especially so for rats, who like the meaty smell as much as canines do. Another popular nibble, although not a food product: soap.
  • An “off” aroma, or smell. House mice have a distinctive musky odor. It’s hard to describe, but once you smell it, you’ll never forget it.
  • Tracks. Look for footprints or tail marks in dusty spots. The type of track and tail marks can tell you what kind of rodent you’re battling. Mice have the smallest feet, measuring 3/8 inch or less. Rat tracks average between 3/4 to 1 inch. Rats also drag their tails, which leaves a mark between their feet tracks. If tracks are hard to spot, shining a flashlight across a suspicious area can help illuminate them.
  • Pet excitement. If Rover or Miss Kitty is acting a bit nuts (more nuts than usual?), especially around a possible mouse hiding area, chances are good a critter has been there or is still there.

Rodents are nocturnal, so you probably won’t see many of them unless you’ve got a big infestation going on. That said, mice tend to be more active than rats during daylight hours.
