Hi -

There is no full-proof way to get rid of chipmunks. Here is a general overview of chipmunks in Ohio:

Control options include trapping, exclusion and more. Details on control options to try are located in these factsheets:

https://extension.uga.edu/publications/detail.html?number=C910&title=Chipmunk%20Control

Whatever control methods you choose, be sure to mix it up as much as possible.

There is a complete guide to regulations about chipmunks (and all nuisance wildlife) at this site:
