Chipmunk infestation #364379

Asked September 20, 2016, 7:44 PM EDT

My sister's yard in Tucson, Az, has been overtaken by chipmunks. She has hired a company to help get rid of them, but they aren't making much progress. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi,

Chipmunks or ground squirrels?  We don't see many chipmunks in the lower desert so I am just checking to be sure.  In general, there is no way to eradicate either.  Persistent habitat destruction and fencing are the two things that I see having some affect.
