Well, it's not too hard. Just don't tell your little girl what you're doing! This is what you do:|
First of all, quit feeding the birds or animals - if you're doing it. After the birdseed is gone, and
in the meantime, see if you can spot where the chipmunk holes are. Pick up, at the hardware store, some
OUTDOOR-type rodent bait. They usually come in blocks that feel like wax. (This is the outdoor type)
If you can't get the outdoor type, use regular mouse bait, put either type in their burrows and close
the hole with your heel. You probably only need to do this once. The bait might take a couple of weeks
to work, and it won't work very well if they have other food supplies (bird feeders, etc)
it! If you do it right you can see results in a week or two (results being less chipmunks) - they usually
will die right inside their burrows (fertilizer) so most of the time you don't have to do anything else.
Get back if you have any questions.
