What can I do to get rid of chipmunks in my backyard?

There is a 3-foot strip of land that looks like swiss cheese with all the chipmunk holes. They seem to burrow in and go out through a small boulder/stone retention wall. The boulders themselves have been moving off-kilter on the wall since the chipmunks started invading the area! Help!!! what can I do???

    Mothballs work pretty well at keeping them away. Just make sure you don't have any other pets they could do potential harm to

    Qwhy would you not just enjoy them? They are friendly little critters and if you are patient you can even get them to take peanuts from your hand. My grandchildren love them and feed them whenever they are about. Enjoy nature, don't ruin it pls.

    The chipmunks do not eat walls they dig and go under things.
