Dangers of Chipmunk Infestations
Chipmunks can present many dangers and risks to all kinds of animals and properties. As chipmunks burrow in your yards, they dig extensive networks of tunnels underneath the ground. These tunnels can greatly damage the stability of different structures, sidewalks, and other types of infrastructure, leading to significant damage and safety risks to your property.
Additionally, chipmunks can pose a threat with their actions above ground, They can hide in walls and attics and are notorious for their gnawing behavior. Their strong teeth allow them to chew through various materials including wood, pipes and building/car wires. This gnawing can lead to electrical problems, an increased risk of fire, and damaged/leaky pipes.
Chipmunks also carry diseases and parasites. They are most commonly known to spread salmonella and hantavirus. Although the chance of spread is rare, a chipmunk to both a human or pet could lead to the contraction of an illness. Furthermore, the droppings that come from a chipmunk can contaminate food storage areas, causing the spread of harmful bacteria.
