So,

After 20 years of no problems this f'ing chipmunk bitch decides it's cool to enter my premises and "hang wid chall!" Attitude!

Not cool!!!!

It Entered into the crawlspace (and there is no sign of where it found egress believe me)

Then, It Tore down insulation from under the master bath, and continues to chew for the last 4 days.

I stepped lightly for the first couple days. Putting a camera under there and rat poison. Got my first look at the nemisis late on night 1 as the chipmunk moved the poison around but did not eat.

Day2 - called in to work and said I was staying home to rid this problem. Had a nice breakfast and some old man (squirrel whisperer) who handed me 4 peanuts from his pocket and said "I feed them, but you should go to tractor supply and get a live trap, hang these off the bait wire, and you will get the squirrel!"

So I did - NUH-UH

Not happening!

Day 3 - added new bait. Peanut butter mixed with quick oats.

Left for work waiting for the camera to film the trap

NUH-UH

Day4- got a second motion cam of the squirrel leaving as I turned on the shower. I also left 99.9 KISW blaring on the wall all day, POW tactics

After work, i Went to lowes for goodies and engaged in my war strategy. Like russel Crowe in 300.

In the 2'x2' area that is chewed to shit, I surrounded it with cardboard in the crawlspace. I set up 4 large sticky traps and 2 unbaited rat traps. I proceeded to squirt the entire area down with deer/rodent repellent. Then, I discharged 3 bug bombs off before filling the only escape route up with the live trap

Ran out to watch my victory!

NUH-UH

It never happened!

Did I run said squirrel off for good with KISW alone o_O??

Nope!

She's still chewing away tonight (day 5). I have placed calls with various exterminators.

1 escape route? Plug it off and watch him dehydrate.

I've had cameras watching the exterior since Monday. No motion on the outside of the house for 5 days now. I also sprinkled Ramick ground squirrel bait every 20' around the perimeter of the house. Apparently, they won't go for most baits but this one should get the job done.

Success will be mine, somehow

Blow a CO2 fire extinguisher in there, or set up one of those electronic buzzer things that work on their nervous system. Have had 2 of them in my shop for years and never seen a single mouse turd !!

LOL. Thanks for the laughs!

Probably burrowed in the insulation somewhere and you will have to kill or relocate mama and babies here soon...

Check the roof for any holes in the south facing side. My brother had a family until I plugged the massive hole it made. If you didn't see it then there is another route it has taken. Or it's dead and you will know shortly as our warm weather increases. Good luck.

These things breed fast, destroy shit, and make nests between the insulation. I’ve seen it get bad enough with urine and shit that the insulation had to be removed and reinstalled due to the urine....

It had to have access somewhere to get in, so search real well.... as stated above, check eves, roof line, etc.... they can get in the roof and then find a way down a wall... it has to be going in and out to eat and drink....

Good luck!

Damn, I feel your pain, though not as much. Wifey started feeding wild birds last year and the dropped seed brought ground squirrels into our yard. At first she thought they were "cute" until they started in on her heirloom tomatoes and everything else she planted that was producing fruit. I've dispatched seven of the f*ckers since last Sunday.
