Chipmunk Immunity to Poison

Are chipmunks immune to mice poison? I have put multiple blocks of rodenticide iside this chipmunks hole which happens to be infront of my back door where he has burrowed down along my foundation. It appears he clears the poision from the hole, I figured he was eating it, but the little ******* is still alive. Perhaps he is storing it or is immune?

Any tips on how I can snuff this guy out?

PS- Save your bleeding heart no-kill responses because frankly Scarlet....

It can take two to four days for him to die after ingesting a lethal dose, which itself could take several days.

It is very possible too, as you pointed out, that he/she is stashing it somewhere.

Is it possible that a raccoon or opossum may be getting it at night? They can eat an awful lot before a lethal dose is met.

If the poison bait dosnít work, have you considered an old-fashioned rat trap?

We use rat traps and we have to tie them down or sometimes we go out to the garage and the whole trap is gone.
