This is what I have used in the past, and will continue to use when needed.

A "gofer" is a flunky who fetches stuff for you.
A gopher is an animal.
On golf courses where I lived in the summer as a caddy, they used the same poison gas as once used to fumigate tobacco beds here in KY to poison gophers. Caddies used to run a water hose down one hole and flush em out then shoot them with slingshots. made for a great rainy day diversion when play had stopped. I'd say exterminators use the same gas now days?
BTW, the chipmunks are back out of hibernation and slobbering over my berry patch
You say that to all the girls
I have the same problem x 3, mice, chipmunks and moles. I've taken out about 30 this year using old school spring traps. I'm thinking about making one of these. It seems humane way to dispatch them.
I have armed my rodents and deer with M-60's.....They have to pay me for the ammo...You'd better duck!!!...Quack.............Seems only fair....

I notice our chipmunk and squirrel population is greatly related to the fox population around the house.
I've got at least one fox and a few barred owls around, but they don't seem to be catching many chipmunks. Gonna have to give the bucket trap a shot pretty soon.
We are moving from squirrel eradication, to rabbit eradication.
Since I don't have a garden, one of my favorite pass times is to sit in my hot tub just before dusk drinking a beer and watching the hoards of rabbits come out from under my shed and decimate my neighbor's garden.
Pellet guns, foxes, or snare traps. Makes for a fun spring. Plus the dumb bunnies are not afraid to just hop up to within a foot or two of us. They're going to learn the hard way. Fear Bipeds !
The outdoor cat has been doing a good job on the chippers lately, plus various other rodents. You just need to watch where you step when you go out the door, wife squished one while barefoot last week.
I am a predatory carnivore.....Dose bunnies can have all the vegans they want..Just leave the potatoes and corn -on-the -cob alone....
I've tried the bucket system with limited success. The squirrels have found the bucket lately anywhere I put it and take the peanut butter without managing to drown themselves.
Any ideas for excluding the squirrels? Do the snap traps catch squirrels also?
Leave a little anti-freeze out, so they can wash down that peanut butter. or use a bigger bucket [ think trash can]
I’ve been seeing owls hunting them in the daytime recently.
Just an aside, you can’t really get some owls.
I store my Winnebago in a covered storage facility with a paved surface. But of course, we are out in the desert.
I had mice get into my engine and damage my electronics. $500 later all is well. I bought two Rid-A-Rat strobes to keep out the mice. One year later it has worked. It was recommended by the storage unit staff as a possible solution. I mounted one near the transmission on the right side and one below the headers on the frame on the left. They use powerful magnets to hold them in place. They emit a steady strobe flash every few seconds.
Just did battle with a family of squirrels in the garage attic, first I found their entrance and installed a one way door... out only.
Next I offered them something no self respecting squirrel couldn’t resist.... peanuts and a motorcycle ride
When that failed I treated them to several games of squirrel hockey, the were tenacious but played an offensive game where they really needed to be playing defence. Although I have left the hockey sticks out as an open invitation they decided to go elsewhere.
