Chipmunk Burrowing Under Pavers?

I had a chipmunk hole under a paver sidewalk in the backyard. Some pavers were broken and a chipmunk made a tunnel under them. I removed the broken sidewalk, sprayed Repel red pepper oil down and around his hole and filled in his hole. I thought this would make him vacate that tunnel and make a new one elsewhere. No luck. I put down many inches of paver base and sand and he tunneled right back up. Now my pavers are uneven and wobbly. I don't need the chipmunk gone, but I want him to vacate that tunnel and make a new one away from the pavers. What can I do?

Purchase a product called Repels All. It's a granulated, organic substance that irritates their nasal passages. I guarantee they won't come back after a couple of times. Sprinkle around the entire perimeter of your paver patio. Don't forget to cover your nose when sprinkling Repels All - I've gotten a bloody nose more than once and it always bothers me if I don't cover up. Reapply after a rain. It's important that you kill burrowing chippies because they'll continue to do damage. Revert to setting spring traps or putting poison peanuts down the hole.

Sorry to disagree with Peggy D, but they DO come back with Repels All. They have destroyed my flower gardens, and have now tunneled under my brick patio!! I have put Repels All around their track and into their home but they are still there!


I am trying red hot pepper AND a rat trap today! They are destructive!!

Peggy D... I swear my Chipmunks ask for repels-all name. Whenever I'm near my tomatoes I hear hey, we need more repels-all!!

Intruder 16525 The Better Rodentrap 6.99 Amazon. These little terrorists made my paver walkway sink and chewed a hose in my truck. I tried ammonia, moth balls, cayenne pepper, vinegar nothing worked.


I purchased these traps and I'm slowly diminishing the population of these horrid rodents. Ugh!
