Answer: You can stop chipmunks from chewing on plants, wires or pipes, with Ropel. Ropel tastes terrible and once the chipmunks get the taste of it, they will avoid
treated surfaces. Ropel is easy to apply. Simply spray it with a pump sprayer or a trigger sprayer. It is clear, odorless and does not stain. It will not harm pets, children or the chipmunks, but it will get them to stop chewing whatever you spray with it. Generally, treatments last 30 days. Expect longer residual during dry weather and less with a lot of rain. However, Ropel tastes so bad that even trace amounts are enough to keep them away.
The most practical and effective method for chipmunk control is live trapping. Chipmunks are easy to catch and live traps are a humane way to move them out of your landscape. Simply place the trap by their burrows or under plants, trees or bird feeders where you have seen them. Use any of the food stuff you know they are eating as bait and you will quickly catch foraging animals. Once caught, you'll have to cart
the animals at least 5 miles away before releasing them. Chipmunks can travel several miles so make sure you don't give them a chance to get back to your property.
Good luck with your project.
