Chipmunks are funny little creatures. We could describe them, relatively accurately, as “squirrel’s hyperactive little brothers.” It takes a lot to be considered hyperactive compared to squirrels, but chipmunks pull it off. Most homeowners don’t know much about chipmunks, except that they’re a surprisingly constant nuisance in spring and fall. Chipmunk’s constant, somewhat disruptive presence begs the question: what are they doing around your home anyway? What do chipmunks want, and why do they think that it’s up your drain pipes? Here’s everything you didn’t know you wanted to know about chipmunks--including why they seem to like your garage so much.
