How can I keep chipmunks from pooping at the entrance to my home?

What are they eating at that spot? Chipmunks and squirrels usually eat and poop immediately after so they are eating something close by. They like apples, nuts, cherries, berries etc. Take a look around and if you really find the poop disgusting you'll have to remove the food. We have oaks, maples, chokecherries, crab apple trees and leave the fruit for the animals. I love the little guys along with the deer and yes, we do have poop around, but since the trees aren't around the house itself, we don't have an issue with it. The blue jays love to get into the fruit as well and they get drunk on it. Have you ever heard a drunk blue jay? Too funny. :) (09/08/2009)
Put hot pepper sauce all over the place. Critters do not like hot pepper. Good luck. (09/09/2009)
Place small pieces of bubble gum along their runways. They love it but they cannot digest it. End of story. (09/11/2009)
Please don't be nasty and use bubblegum. I have chipmunks too and yes they get into the plants. I use black pepper or cayenne sprinkled around flowers. Sometimes it works
