Trouble with Chipmunks

Can a chipmunk make a burrow under a concrete slab? This chipmunk also ate through sealant to close holes. Is that normal? It has been pulling the carpet fibers out of the carpet too.

Chipmonks are a burrowing critter so they can make a tunnel under a concrete slab. I have them living in my stone walls which they seem to prefer. Although I have seen them make burrows next to my birch trees. I have a hav-a-heart trap that I bait with seeds. When I catch one I release the critter about 10 miles from the house. I will never get rid of them but I can control how many are running around the property.

She is pregnant. Do not hurt her. She is gathering fiber for her nest. For areas that you wish she would stay out of, spread cayenne pepper.
