I Am Winning The Chipmunk War

Posted on August 16, 2013. Filed under: Philosophy, Plants | Tags: , , |

chipmunkThere he is, the little varmint!  Cute as can be and soooo destructive!  I have been having 2 wars with him all summer.  He is chewing up the rubbery base of my garage door AND digging incessantly very near my new and very expensive tree peony!

I have tried water down the hole, dog poop down the hole, big rock on the hole, mouse trap on the hole, big rat trap on the hole, reflective glass balls on the hole, new black duct tape on the garage door.  ALL TO NO AVAIL!

Today the tide turned in my favor all because of:

hot sauce Ha, ha, ha!  I poured this stuff down the hole and all over the top of the ground AND all along the bottom of the garage door.  Guess what!  No chipmunk activity at these two places today.  Hot paws and/or mouth = very unpleasant, maybe go dig elsewhere!!

This just proves that being human and having quite an advanced brain (when compared to a chipmunk) gives me the edge I needed to avoid resorting to chemicals of any harmful kind.

It’s good for a very good laugh, too!

That guy came to visit my garden, too, last year. I chased him around while making crazy sounds and waving my arms wildly. It never came again. But now I have either a rabbit or a groundhog, haven’t met the current visitor yet. Not sure the crazy yelling will work again. Better stick to your chili sauce method.

Ha, ha! My chipmunks would laugh at me if I tried your method! They don’t even get caught in the mouse/rat traps even though they go off. Very clever chaps, these! So far so good with the chili sauce!

I am really impressed together with your writing talents as neatly
as with the format for your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it
your self? Anyway keep up the excellent high quality writing,
it is uncommon to look a great blog like this one nowadays..
