    Types of Rodents in St Louis



    Groundhogs are known for their extensive burrowing activities, which can undermine building foundations and damage gardens. Their burrows create large holes that pose safety hazards. Professional pest control services manage groundhog populations through humane trapping and exclusion techniques.



    Chipmunks may be small, but they cause considerable damage by digging up gardens and flower beds. They also chew on structures and wiring, leading to potential repair costs. Effective control measures include habitat modification and exclusion methods to prevent chipmunks from accessing buildings.



    Gophers are another rodent species prevalent in St. Louis. These burrowing rodents can wreak havoc on gardens and landscapes, causing soil erosion and damaging plant roots. Additionally, their tunnels can undermine foundations and create hazardous ground instability. Effective pest control strategies focus on humane trapping and relocation, as well as habitat modification to deter future infestations.
