They seem to love to raid bird feeders. Try some bird seed. A little peanut butter mixed in wouldn't hurt.

Thanks for the advice Nelson. I am thinking about trying sunflower seeds or dry corn with peanut butter.

Chipmunks are attracted to a variety of foods, especially nuts, grains, and berries. Chipmunk traps are designed with sensitive trigger plates to react to tiny critters, therefore the best baits are small and lightweight.

I had raccoon issue at home which was really a nightmare. Oh! Describing the damage they brought would be like essaying. I was helpless even after trying all the possible ways out. I was then informed about raccoon removal service in Toronto which was my last resort. Truly that was a great thinking of hiring them which brought peace to my home. I think they can better take care f your chipmunk problem. They help you with all sorts of pest animal and birds. Thanks to Hawkeye!! :P :D
