They can cause damage to flower beds and lawns with their burrowing. When the population gets too high and chipmunks become accustomed to living amongst humans it may be time to call the professionals before they cause further damage. Some of the damage chipmunks can cause is to beloved flowers, gardens, fall-hazards from burrows and collapsed foundations/sidewalks from eroding the soil underneath.
