Question: Can you tell me how to get rid of chipmunks? They are seriously destroying my landscaping.

Answer: Chipmunks are wily little creatures and can be tough to control. You can trap them with peanut butter, oats, nuts, or sunflower seeds in either a catch-and-release trap or one that’s a bit more, well, deadly. Chipmunk repellent sprays also are available; contact your local garden center to see if it carries them. If the chipmunks are eating your bulbs, try putting jagged shells or stones in the holes where you plant them. Plant cages will also keep the critters out.
