Thirteen-lined Ground Squirrel are small and slender rodents. They have 13 alternating white and brown lines running down their back. They look very similar to the chipmunk, but burrow tunnels under the ground. Thirteen-lined Ground Squirrel can be found along the foundations of buildings, in gardens, mulch beds, etc., as they avoid wooded areas. Golf courses, parks, cemeteries, and pastures are common natural habitats for this squirrel.
They’re never found in homes, unlike the majority of the other squirrel species. Rather than chewing inside, these squirrels will do their damage outside in the yard. They cause problems with erosion, tear up gardens, and create burrows and holes around the property.
Thirteen-lined Ground Squirrel, like the chipmunk, are not hard to control. Getting on a regular trapping program to control the population is an easy solution.
