We have chipmunks. Every morning, they're the loudest critter on the block. Every time we mow the lawn we find another hole. My husband has been trying to minimize their impact on our lawn and house for months now without success. When we discovered that they had 3 holes chewed into the side of our house along with one under the garage and one under the patio, we decided it was time to fight dirty.
I thought we had only 2-3 living in our yard.
Want to guess at how many my husband has caught in the last 8 days? C'mon, take a guess... The number is truly frightening if you consider that we probably haven't caught them all.
As of this morning, the count is up to 13!!!
That's 13 chipmunks in 8 days. Talk about a thriving colony living with us. Well, it WAS thriving... but for the past three mornings, it's been quiet in the yard!
