Introduction:Although chipmunks are cute little critters, they can become a serious nuisance if they get in your walls or attic. In the yard, they eat the strawberries, dig up bulbs and can burrow under steps and decks undermining those.
If they've become a pest, then try these ways to move them along.
This works for chipmunks in the house as they can't stand the sound of it. Check the recommendations on the one you get to be sure it won't bother any pets you have.
This can be used in the house or outside. Bait it with peanuts or peanut butter. When the chipmunk enters to get the food, it trips the lever where the food it. This closes the door keeping the animal inside. Our neighbor caught 7 chipmunks this way.
Take them for a ride in the car until you get to a natural barrier like a river, then release the chipmunk in its new territory.
These used to be just a plastic decoy that you put in the garden, but they are much more sophisticated now. Using solar power, some owls turn their heads, blink their eyes and even flap their wings.
This can be bought at large garden centers or places like Home Depot or Lowes. It works best if you've removed the chipmunks with the trap and then use this to keep new ones from moving in. Sprinkle it around the border of the yard or around the outside of the house.
The chipmunks won't want to live in an area where they are at constant risk of capture by a predatory animal like a cat. They will move on to a safer territory.
