My truck is back in the shop because Chipmunks have been chewing on the wiring second time this year , They got my wife's car last year when she couldn't park in the garage because it was full of cabinets for the kitchen remodeling . Haven't wanted to put out poison because of all the pets running around . Anyone had this problem and what did you do to fix it .

Trapped and relocated at a minimum of 5 dozen one spring/summer after I had to get my truck repaired due to the little buggers. I haven't seen the feral cats this summer nor the hawks and the population is growing so I might have to start the process again.

A scoped Gamo Wisper air rifle in .177  You can really hone in you breathing and trigger pull skills. They make a nice little target out to 50 Yds. or so.

Perforated Altoid boxes filled with moth balls

strategically secured under the hood.

If you have cabin air filters check them now.

I filled a chipmunk hole with a dozen mothballs 1 day and covered the entrance.  The next day the hole was open and all the mothballs were out on the lawn.:laugh:

I have seen mice do that..

but never have known chipmonks do chew through wires

Mice. Many manufactures use soybean oil as a lubricant when pulling the wire during the insulation process. (Food safe). Mice love chewing it. Chippies, not so much.
