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.
Didn't’ I sell you a 7.62x39 ar upper? Does it not work,lol? Jeesus Ford Tree Rats really?

Rebaited live trap and 2 rat traps after this. Also moved everything out a foot or two. First half is pretty funny. I'm slightly optimistic that this is progress. New high powered pellet gun in hand and I might get a second live trap tomorrow. Still blasting KISW into the wall LOL

Is that trap dual door or single? For sure you want a dual door.

Single. Good point. I will try to find a dual. Thanks
If you are planning a trip to Redmond any time soon I have a dual door that has caught a lot of squirrels that you are welcome to use.

Caught a bunch of squirrels with a little peanut butter on the flat bait part of that trap. Relocated them around north seattle. Thought about spray painting them to ensure they didn't come back but figured media would have a field day. Gotta find their entrance. I hate squirrels as much as ants. could they be going under the vapor barrier?

I just keep moving cameras around. I did just pick up a dual door trap and baited the tray with peanut butter and sunflower seeds.

This morning she ran off towards the south end of the house so the new trap and camera are towards that direction.

Here is this morning. I kinda hope it doesn't eventually go for a rat trap because I feel like they are stupid fast and it will just be more skiddish of anything else under there. I only get like one view of it per day.

I will cover the traps tonight. I have found the place of egress on the east side of the house. There are about 5 quarter size holes there in the grass in an area about 4' x 8'. Yes, the dam thing has somehow made its way under my foundation.

I have been sighting in a swiss arms TG-1 pellet gun from 30-60'.

The 2 live traps are baited with peanut butter and sunflower seeds. Rat traps have been removed. The outside area will be baited with sunflower seeds tomorrow morning. I will be waiting.

It goes out around 530am like clockwork. Let the games continue

531 am

Please don't let this vermin out smart you...spend the night up in your crawl space with a pump BB gun or CO2 pellet pistol. It's getting to the point of manhood now..........we're all counting on you....

Change the radio station to KUOW.

After a day of listening to that, they will stop tearing your house apart and instead, expect someone else to do it for them while they look for a doctor that performs gender reassignment surgery on chipmunks.

Within a week, they will relocate to a chipmunk camp on public property where someone with a degree in dance interpretation will deliver peanut butter with sunflower seeds to them.

If you want to change their behavior, you must first change their minds.

The thing is already living the socialist dream. Sneaking in through a tunnel. Taking up residence under the roof of a hardworking American!
What you need to trap it with is some methadone!

You all are not helping with it’s identity crisis, no wonder it is acting out. I am pretty sure that is a squirrel not a chipmunk.
