So how do we keep chipmunks from destroying our gardens? According to Pet Samurai "What are the natural scents that repel chipmunks? Chipmunks, unlike humans, cannot stand the smells of certain vital oils such as peppermint, citrus, cinnamon, and eucalyptus. Furthermore, chipmunks despise the smell of garlic. By using these scents in your garden as a homemade chipmunk repellent, you will essentially get rid of the chipmunks and make them no longer want to visit that area." 

Have you found certain "scents" that will keep Chip & Dale from running around your garden? If you have found some good chipmunk repellents please share your findings so we can implement them as well. Always looking for a way to deter the little ones, without harming them.
