chipmunks - wondering about onion
I read somewhere that planting allium bulbs keep chipmunks away from eating your bulbs. I was wondering about planting onions near my bulbs, or placing onion pieces around some of them. Is this an idea.
What I've been doing lately is pouring bleach down their holes, and then getting some of that bird netting and pushing that down the hole too. then I cover it with a rock. I'm not sure if I'm deterring them. I think they are just building new holes.
I have a real dilemma. My husband insists on feeding the birds the sunflower seeds. The feeder has a tray and a squirrel baffle which helps with the squirrels, but a ton of seeds drop to the ground, and the chipmunks carry them off to plant in my flower beds, in my flower pots, and everywhere else. My husband won't stop feeding the birds, even though I think 50% of the seeds are going to the chipmunks.
Thanks for listening. Any ideas???? Anyone?
