What smells keep chipmunks away?
Similarly, it is asked, what is a natural deterrent for chipmunks?
Common chipmunk repellents are pureed garlic, hot peppers, or a combination of both. Steep the pureed garlic and hot peppers in 1 cup hot soapy water until the water is cool. Strain and add 1 tablespoon of oil. Other chipmunk repellent suggestions include castor oil, predator urine and ammonium soap.
Additionally, how do I keep chipmunks out of my garden? Bring in a "predator": A decoy predator, like a motion-activated owl, can scare chipmunks away from your yard. You can also buy a spray product made from the urine of predator animals like red foxes and cats. The smell will convince chipmunks that they're in danger - and they'll stay away.
In this manner, do mothballs keep chipmunks away?
Mothballs will deter chipmunks and squirrels from your home. Mothballs contain the chemical naphthalene. Naphthalene has a very strong odor that chipmunks and squirrels detest. Chipmunks and rodents have a great sense of smell, and can smell the mothballs from far distances.
Will coffee grounds keep chipmunks away?
Coffee grounds You can sprinkle used coffee grounds around you garden and between your plants. In fact, coffee grounds make an excellent compost, and Starbucks likely will give you free bags of coffee grounds for composting. Because most rodents are so close to the ground, coffee grounds can make an excellent barrier.
