I've about had it with my population, too. They've undermined my
aboveground pool; have holes everywhere; have eaten too many pepper
plants. . ..
I'm going to go with Trapper John's cure
[http://asktrapperjohn.com/faq.htm ] and make bait stations loaded
He doesn't describe the bait station very well-- but what I've seen
online is- a pair of 24" 3-4" pvc with a reducing T between.
The 1 1/2 leg is just high enough for access to drop the bait in and
capped to keep critters and rain out.
The chipmunks go to their holes to die.
They eat my mom's plants too. Using a rat trap that got 32 last year. As of
early June it was 5 this year. They are only maintaining the population,
not decreasing it.
