For the past 18 years we've had one or two chipmunks living in our yard. No problems and they were so cute. This year we've had a chipmunk explosion! I have no idea how many there are but I imagine it's quite a few. They enjoy digging up my container plants. They aren't eating them just making a mess. We don't have a wooded lot but they live under the deck which is 3700 sq ft and multi leveled. I can't get under most of it to see where they've made their home. I've tried a humane trap that I've used for possums and squirrels with no luck. I don't want to hurt them and my dog has no effect on them at all. Is there any way to get them to move on? I enjoyed them when there were only a couple but this is getting out of hand.
