They are known to dig burrows which are about two inches in diameter without an obvious mound near its entrance. Their entries and exits are often well hidden and located near buildings such as basements, garages and near objects such as wood stumps and wood piles.

The chipmunk can be cute and cuddly, but for homeowners and gardeners they can be of a nuisance. Chipmunks are known for devouring garden vegetables, fruits, plants, flower beds, eating from bird feeders and even chewing on electrical lines and pipes. In addition, chipmunks can potentially carry various diseases. They also attract other pests into the equation. Snakes are highly attracted to areas where chipmunks are populated. Moreover, their burrows weaken your home making it more susceptible for termite infestations. Not only can chipmunks cause problem outdoors but also indoors. Chipmunks have been spotted in attics and basements. Therefore, it is important to try to and find the most effective method of Chipmunk Control and the best ways on how to kill chipmunks as soon as you have realized that there may be a serious infestation. Moreover, for those that are not interested in killing chipmunks, chipmunk traps are available. A live animal chipmunk trap will catch chipmunks effectively, but will not kill them.

Chipmunk Repellent & Traps

Chipmunks can reproduce twice a year, so it is important find out the pest method of how to kill chipmunks or the best way to use a chipmunk trap to control chipmunks that are found in and around your house as soon as possible. There are several ways on how to kill chipmunks. However, the best type of control methods that we recommend is prevention. We recommend chipmunk traps. You can easily find a chipmunk trap from our collection of live animal chipmunk traps online. Chipmunk repellent granules are a great way to prevent anymore chipmunks from invading your home. Simply shower granules creating a perimeter around your home. Another great method is to smoke chipmunks out using gas sticks. Gas sticks release a strong sulfur gas which will kill small rodents while engulfing underground burrows and tunnels. Simply place a Giant Destroyer Gas Stick in the entrance of a burrow then attach and ignite the included fuse. Place the gas stick deep within the entry and cover the entrance hole (be sure to block off any open gaps to ensure the released smoke does not escape). Ultimately though, one of the most reliable ways to get rid of chipmunks is to set up traps. Chipmunk traps have been used for the longest time and for good reason too, they work. Using the right bait and a good quality chipmunk trap, chipmunks will be lured in and trapped for good. In addition, the use of chipmunk traps promote humane animal treatment. After the chipmunk has been trapped in the chipmunk trap, simply relocate the animal(s) off your property.

Q. chipmunks in basement
I have chipmunks coming under my basement floor. Do you have any ideas how I can control these pests?
A.   You can use the Giant Destroyers if you are able to find the entry point outside the structure. However, as a precautionary statement, Giant Destroyer is not labeled for indoor use and if the entry point leads to the inside of the home or basement, you cannot use the Giant Destroyers. Rodenticide will also work for chipmunk control and if they are inside your home, you may want to consider using rodent glue boards.

Q. does "D Con" work the same on chipmonks as mice
something is in my garage I find droppings in one area and I am not sure if it a mouse of chip. does d con work the same on both-or do I need something for ea. HELP Thank you
A.   Since we do not carry the product, we do not have much information on it. However, rodenticides are primarily not target specific and the poison can be hazardous to non-target wildlife, therefore, if a chipmunk were to eat the poison, it may be effected in a negative way. However, we are unable to say whether or not it would be fatal to the chipmunk.

Q. how to get rid of chipmonks above finished basement ceiling
A.   First and foremost, you need to find their entry point. They probably leave and come back and will not stay there the whole day. You can use a live animal trap outside of the entry point. Using rodenticides inside the house means that there is a risk of them dying inside the house and leaving bad and strong odors. Live animal traps, glue boards, and snap traps are the best way to get rid of rodents inside the house.

Q. how do i stop chipmunks from putting walnuts under hood of my truck for hybernating
chipmunks are putting walnuts in the motor of my gmc jimmy i drive and the blazer my daughter drives. its almost gotten us in car accidents and we have to check under the hood before we go anywhere. i know they are doing it cause their getting ready to hybernate but its getting dangerous.
A.   Unfortunately, there is no real way of preventing them from going inside the hood of the trunk. They access the internal parts of the car from the tires and so you can try to put rodenticide around there in bait stations (so you will be able to protect other wildlife) or use glue boards at the base of the car. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
