Alvin and his mates may be cute - but the real guys have me snorting fire! It’s one thing to fight and struggle to grow a garden in zone 3 at nearly 9000 ft. elevation, but it’s even worse when the chipmunks and voles destroy all my progress and I watch all the money I spent on plants go into their bellies.
I’m open to any and all suggestions to rid these pesky varmints. So far, live traps, essential oils, coffee grounds, and garlic/cayenne tea have been used.
I have three dogs, so I worry about the sonic systems, and am concerned the birds won’t like that either.
Mr. Google has tons of suggestions, but I don't need suggestions. I need experienced folks who have successfully gotten rid of these critters to chime in and give me some real advice.
