Chipmunks

Chipmunks are common rodents throughout Wisconsin, particularly the eastern chipmunk. These cute and innocent-looking animals are known for their chubby cheeks, white and black lines along their body, and little flicky tails. Chipmunks primarily feed on seeds, nuts, and other vegetation. They make underground dens with multiple chambers to live in and hibernate during the winter.

Are Chipmunks a Concern?

Seduced by their cuteness, some people feed them on a regular basis. However, do not be fooled by their tiny stature. Chipmunks can cause plenty of damage to homeowners such as chewed wires, cracks in driveways and sidewalks from their tunneling, and landscape damage. Their underground burrows can compromise the structural integrity of walkways, garage floors, and even foundations.

DID YOU KNOW?Once abandoned by the chipmunks, their burrows are often taken over by snakes. 

Chipmunks breed in early spring (February to April) and again in summer (June to August). The litter size of a chipmunk ranges from 4 to 5 young that are born a few after breeding. Baby chipmunks will stay in their burrow for about 5-6 weeks before going off on their own.

Chipmunks are common throughout Wisconsin, especially woody areas and parks. Their dens have many chambers and tunnels that can stretch out for 20-30 feet. The entrances to their dens are typically located near shrubs, brush, or rocky places to provide coverage.
