Nancy Turner on Sep 11, You will never be rid of them, all you can do it make it inhospitable for them.
Try red pepper flakes or powdered hot spices. You could even try hot sauce in water sprayed on the plants the chipmunks pick on. I have also had luck with grated Irish Spring soap. As a last resort I bait a mouse trap and put it near chippies damage area. The snap scares them to death and they avoid the area for a while. I also feed my resident chippie stale nuts, cereal, cookies etc.
That seems to limit his destruction and keep him happy. Mae Garrels on Sep 11, I'll share a trick that got rid of gophers in my garden When you see where the moles and voles and chipmunks are working the ground, go to the grocery store and buy a small amount of DRY ICE Lightly dig where the moles have been digging. Place a piece of the dry ice into a hole in the ground, pour on a little water to start the dry ice steaming, place a pot, brick or something over the hole.
The steam from the dry ice will go all through the hole or run of the animals. It suffocates the animal and no others will come into that run where the dead ones are!

If you have a lot of these pests, you may have to do this two or three times but it will get rid of them. I used to have them every spring, eating everything! My neighbors back yard is filled with holes so I'm pretty sure that's where they were coming from. I used this one spring, had no gophers until the next spring, used it again and have not seen a digging, mound or gopher since!
My neighbor says she does not have as many.
Spring is when they usually come out here where I live in CA. This has worked great for gophers, why not try it for the moles and voles And you might want to check your yard for open holes and cover them over before you do the dry ice. Our city puts out poisons in the parks for the chipmunks, they are really bad here. I don't like to put out poisons because of my pets.

The dogs do not go to the gopher holes if they have been covered over with something while the gases of the dry ice are still there. After a few days I just fill in the holes with dirt. Laura Spears on Sep 12, We have used jalapeno peppers to rid our yard of moles. Cut the top off to expose the seed. Bury them in the tunnel.
