    While shot guns and golf clubs are appealing, the best way is to remove their food source. They eat soil insects. 2 or 3 applications of a decent lawn insecticide will have the little guys looking for greener pastures. Be sure to treat an area larger than the problem area, so they don't migrate to a new spot for you. If you like your neighbors, have them treat their lawns at the same time.

    ...And if they ignore your eviction notice...award them with plenty of bait.

    I believe you are thinking of moles.
    Chipmunks eat seeds as well as a bunch of other things.Cats can help, pellet or bb guns if you have the patience or maybe trap them.

    You're right, I was thinking of moles.

    1- Sparsely fed cats with claws
    2- Jack Russell Terriers (properly fed or not)
    3- Lead poisoning
    4- Humane traps followed by "a ride to the country"

    A Daisy Red Rider BB gun, but watch out, "you will shoot your eye out"!

    I do not like chipmunks either. When I had an outdoor stray female (spayed) cat she kept the chipmunk population down. She even put a dead chipmunk in her food dish for me. Well stray cats come and go.
    I ordered a Rat Zapper off Amazon. They work great. I have both sizes but the bigger one works better for chipmunks. I zapped 4 in one day. Go to Amazon and order a Rat Zapper. Kaydance
