Our whole neighborhood is infested with chipmunks. One day my husband took a stand by our garage door with his .177 pellet rifle and killed 22 of them on our wood pile alone. The next day they were all gone. Picked up by the coyotes and foxes. Now his air rifle is sent out to be fixed and the varmits are procreating like mad at three litters a year with no one to keep them in check. Grrrrr. There are hundreds out there chirping, whistling and making all kinds of noise beside destroying our yard and our stamped concrete walk. You can poison them, trap them, soap them, mothball them, but putting a bead on them with a scope & a spot on air rifle, killing ’em dead in a second, gives the most satisfying feeling of all. Can’t wait till that air rifle comes back.
