Filling a Chipmunk Burrow Hole

I have a chipmunk burrow hole along the side of my basement walk up steps. Today we got heavy rains, and I noticed water coming through the stairs where it buts up against the wall.

What is the best way to fill this hole up. Of course, I could dig around the area and then pack dirt back in, or I can pour sand down the hole as much as possible and then put dirt/grass seed over that.

Filling a Chipmunk Burrow Hole

If these are active burrows, I'd fill the holes with a mixture of decon pellets and bird seed to get rid of the chipmunks. After a few weeks, I'd remove the sod in the area and dig down ~ a foot to collapse the tunnel and seal the hole, replace the sod.


What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it.
