  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Iowa's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Iowa's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Muscatine county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Muscatine animal control for wildlife issues.

Muscatine Wildlife Removal Tip: What kind of damage can chipmunks cause?

Contrary to popular belief, chipmunks do not eat wood. This means that they do not pose a threat to trees, walls or porches. The only major threat they pose is their burrowing which could cause structural damages to foundation, sidewalks or stairs. Their diet comprises mostly of young plants, bulb and fruits.

They tend to eat fruits on a tree. This can be hazardous for a farm owner who uses the fruits on his or her tree as a means of livelihood. While they do not attack the properties of humans, they can dig deep beneath the ground which can cause the foundation to tip which would in turn cost the house owner a lot of money to fix.

Their damages to houses are more on the exterior than on the interior. Occasionally, their burrowing causes them to sneak into the lower levels of a building. Rodents in general like to nip at things, including wires. Chipmunks are no exception. They can eat through wires buried beneath walls and open wires can lead to a spark and then a full out fire in an apartment.

There are a few occurrences that would help an owner of a building know if chipmunks are around his or her property. They include

Holes in the lawn: Chipmunks in their bid to scavenge for fruits and other young plants tend to cause holes in the lawns of properties. They are popular for causing damages to gardens.
Piles of fruits around lawn and under birdfeeders: They have a tendency to hijack food meant for birds. They also overrun birdfeeders. When there are piles of seeds scattered under birdfeeders, it is safe to say that a chipmunk lurks close by.
Flowering bulbs uprooted and eaten: The farm lands are not safe from their assault. They tend to uproot the flowering bulbs of plants and eat them. When there are more than a few chipmunks in a particular area, it would be very tasking to grow flowers in the area as they would be eaten on a daily basis.
Tracks: When examined carefully, the tracks left by the chipmunks would not be hard to spot. Once they are scattered everywhere, then the owner might have a chipmunk problem. Chewed wires: As earlier stated, chipmunks tend to eat wire just like other rodents. Once there are chewed up wires, a chipmunk is close.
Dropping of fecal matter: As is with other rodents, chipmunks dispose of their fecal matter anywhere.
Damaged foundation caused by burrows: The burrows they created underneath the soil of existing building causes the building to have problems with its foundation as it would not be as balanced as before.
