|What can be done to safely repel chipmunks from our lawn? They have tunnels underground, everywhere, and are slowly ruining the lawn. Thank you.|
|I wish there were an easy solution to the problem! Trapping is the most practical method of eliminating chipmunks in most home situations. Live-catch wire-mesh traps or common rat snap traps can be used to catch chipmunks. Common live-trap models include the Tomahawk (Nos. 102, 201) and Havahart (Nos. 0745, 1020, 1025) traps. Here's a website with more information about the pesky critters: http://icwdm.org/handbook/rode...
