A chipmunk somehow snuck into our garage. It's been there for over two weeks. We were thinking of opening up both the garage doors and then chasing it out. But it's hidden somewhere that we don't know! There is so much junk in my garage, I'm afraid we can't find it! Can someone please help? Email me at zahra48323@yahoo.com if you have any ideas. Please make the subject of the letter "Chipmunk problem!" so I can know it isnt spam. Thank you so much!

I'll tell you what works! Set a mouse trap with sunflower seeds on it. Works the same as it would with a mouse.

Rat trap. Bait with honey and oats. Works everytime.
If trapping chipmunks outside switch to sunflower seeds and glue them to the trap with white glue.
Dad traps 20-30+ chipmunks a year.

I would try a cat see if it will smell it and try to chase it out. Have you tried a live trap with bait. I really think it has probably gone. I do not know how to tell for sure if it has left unless you see it leave. Maybe be try some of that dog begone stuff that they claim has an ordor that keep them out of flower beds.

I read that if you fill a 5 gallon bucket halfway with water and put in sun flower seeds. And put a board for the chipmunks they will follow into the bucket and drown

Use moth balls, put them all around under the mulch or dirt, they don't like the smell of them

Does anyone know how to get rid of chipmunks that are in between the wall of a basement ?
Thought I patched up any holes from the outside but one or two still keeps running between the walls. And it is not mice I caught one field mouse and there are no more droppings so it must be a chipmunks there are a lot around my house.
Can someone suggest something before I go to the outrageous expense of pest control people ?

Thank you,

I'VE USED THE 5 GALLON BUCKET, HALF FULL OF WATER WITH SUNFLOWER SEEDS ON TOP, ALONG WITH A STICK TO GIVE THEM A LITTLE DIVING BOARD. IT TOOK A FEW DAYS BUT MY DEATH TOLL IS NOW 45. I HAVE A VERY SMALL YARD. AMAZING. TRY IT.

I was live-trapping the chipmunks at first and after relocating 6, realized I had a much bigger problem. I was reluctant at first, but had to finally resort to trying the 5 gallon bucket option. We are infested and they are doing quite a bit of damage!! It definitely works and is all natural and very cost efficient. In less than one week, 12 have passed on -- we give each one a moment of silence before we dump their butts in the garbage can.

I tried the 5 gal bucket with the sunflower seeds and did manage to get one chipmunk. But I'm still my yard is still infested and I have not caught another one in 2 weeks. My yard is beginning to look like swiss cheese with all their holes.

Hi, We have several chipmunks living under our driveway, under the foundation of our home..and it seems like they are every where.
How do we go about getting rid of them.

I have a chipmunk in my home and I am having a serious problem trying to catch it. My daughter is scared to go to sleep at night. If anyone knows how I can get rid of it or out of my home please help.

There is a prduct on the market called shake away that is made from fox urine - chipmunks do not like foxes - This will deter them from living near your home.
