Humane Chipmunk Removal in Tennessee and South Carolina

Chipmunks are the smallest members of the squirrel family. They are omnivores and feed on seeds, nuts, insects, fruits, and bird eggs,

The adult rodent measures four to seven inches, with a tail three to five inches long. They weigh between 1 to 6 ounces.

They dwell in burrows, holes, and abandoned heaps. These small mammals use their claws to dig tunnels and hide in nooks and crevices. They store food in their cheek pouches to collect more food. Consequently, they spend less time searching for food and are less vulnerable to predators.

They are solitary creatures and spend time with each other only during breeding. They’re shy rodents who often wish to stay out of sight and typically live for two to three years.

These critters are a popular food source for a lot of different animals. Hence, they have a long list of potential predators. Some examples include snakes, raccoons, rats, weasels, coyotes, and owls.

Chipmunks, like other rodents, will often enter your home via an egress in your foundation, gutter line, or roof shingle. Once inside, they will typically nest in your walls or attic, out of sight and away from predators.

This critter can become a pest and need regular removal. Pest control professionals can set up a trap to catch these animals residing in a hole in the basement, attic, or roof.

The presence of chipmunk poop in any area is a reliable indicator of this pest occupying the space. They are potential carriers of ticks and fleas and can spread diseases like rabies, leptospirosis, etc.

Common Chipmunk Removal FAQ

Learn about how to remove chipmunks once and for all.

How do I know if I have chipmunks?

Listen behind your walls during dusk or dawn. Do you hear a scratching or scurrying sound? If so, you definitely have a rodent problem. The only question is what kind of rodent, as mice often like to live in your walls as well.

The best way to verify is to then look outside your home. Do you see chipmunks coming and going frequently? Do they like to congregate under a bird feeder or at your property line?

Chipmunks are habitual animals and often follow the same trails to and from their nests. This makes them easy to spot (even if they are quite nimble).

Another way to verify is to check your attic and basement. While mice and rats prefer the darkness of a basement, chipmunks are attuned to be up high. As such, if you hear scratching behind your walls and you have attic damage, you likely have chipmunks.

Can chipmunks actually be removed?

Yes, with the right methods.

The first thing emergency chipmunk removal services will need to do is to locate and remove the nest.

We then survey your home for entry points. Holes in your foundation, exterior doors, and more are all surveyed and sealed. This is a critical step. Many wildlife removal services can help remove wildlife but do little to prevent them from coming back.

By first removing and then securing, you can help ensure your home stays pest-free long after the removal.

How is your removal humane?

We don’t use glue traps or other torturous devices in our removal. We simply catch, relocate, and then patch. This way, you can rest assured you’ve hired properly humane chipmunk removal.

Can I remove chipmunks myself?

You can try, but we’ve found chipmunks to be very elusive. They are naturally fearful creatures, which makes even just seeing them a rarity.

Instead, we suggest leaving it to the professionals, who know where chipmunks best like to nest. With a trusted chipmunk removal provider, you also get the assurance they won’t return. Ready to remove your chipmunks once and for all? Contact us to get a free quote today!

We were really impressed with Chris Mclain’s knowledge of pest control. He was so professional in his explanation of what we needed to have done. His bid was also much lower than our other bid. We highly recommend this company for any pest elimination you need. Michael and Ashley Robilio.

Matt at Alpha Wildlife is such a nice and professional guy. I always like to hire veteran owned companies and you can tell that he has that demeanor about him. He was able to help with the squirrels in our attic in Bartlett, TN. Great guy.

David and Matt at Alpha Wildlife are awesome to work with. We live in Germantown, TN and had rats in our home. They were quick to diagnose the problem and got the rats out of our home. Great work from both of them.

After calling multiple other companies to remove a possibility rabid racoon from my property and was told they could not get to me until the next day, I called Alpha Wildlife. Chris came out within 30 minutes of my call and caught and removed racoon. He said they would check to make sure it was sick. If so they would euthanize humanely. If it was not sick they would release it back into the wild. This made my daughter very happy. I would highly recommend.
