Getting Rid of Chipmunks

How do I get rid of chipmunks? They have tunnels throughout my yard and I don't want the ground to sink. Any suggestions?

You can use a rat trap, which is like a snap-type mouse trap, only bigger. Bait it with peanut butter and place it on a hard surface, not far from a tunnel.

Havahart and Tomahawk make wire mesh traps if you want to catch them alive. In order for these traps to work you will have to place either nuts, slices of prunes, dry cereal, raisins, or peanut butter on the ground in front of the trap for a couple of days so the chipmunks get use to the trap being there, and get use to finding food in that area. After that, place the food inside the trap. But with this type of trap you could catch other animals that you aren't wanting to catch. (04/16/2009)
