What to Do If Your House Is Invaded by Chipmunks or Squirrels

Some people think that squirrels and chipmunks are cute, harmless animals. While they are cute in appearance, these animals are capable of wreaking havoc on your home if they find a way to enter. When squirrels and chipmunks change their address to the one that matches your driver’s license, it is important to take swift action.

Chipmunks can find their way into your home through tiny cracks in the foundation or can gain entry in areas under decks and porches. Initially, they don't cause too much damage, but when one chipmunk becomes two and two becomes four, before long a major problem can arise.

Squirrels can be even more destructive. Squirrels are notorious for gaining entry through the chimney or soffit. Once squirrels have entered the home, they quickly ask their closest friends and family to join them and before long, squirrels destroy attics, crawl spaces, and areas between walls.

If you believe that your home is occupied by more than just your family, it is important to contact a licensed wildlife removal expert who can take the necessary measures to rid your home of unwanted pests. In these instances, it is important to hire a company with a demonstrated track record of properly eradicating squirrels and chipmunks from homes in your area.

Companies specializing in wildlife control are also experts in determining the points of entry in your home, which is crucial because without sealing off access points, efforts to rid the home of squirrels and chipmunks are futile as they will simply return.
