Chipmunks

Not sure where to post this but I have at least on chipmunk if not a family I need to run out of my trailer. Any suggestions that have worked for others would be awesome. Really don't want to poison them and have them die and stink in the trailer. Please help!

Got a cat? No not to kill just to scare it or them out chipmunks avoid anything that an eat them! Dogs, cats or winged raptors work!

Buy/borrow a cat?

The only way is to trap and relocate them, then crawl all over your trailer and find every hole. Anything bigger than a dime needs to get sealed.

I've had good luck with these traps ...

Chipmunks, (ie. ground squirrels) always return to the same place to live. Running them out is only temporary. We had them bad in the yard (eating all our ornamentals). The wife and kids wouldn't let me use the pellet gun, so I live trapped them and took them about 2 blocks away to the park/wetland. That works well. Use sunflower seeds as bait. I caught 5 - 7 a day this way. In a week they were gone and haven't had them since.
I used the "haveahart" small squirrel/rabbit size

Baby (better half) has turf law which in short means love animals but not on our turf then they must be let's say a permanent solution yes termination. I spent 20 years in the Marine Corps and she tells me to let the creator sort them out!

RM, so you terminate them or let the creator sort them out? I'm confused. This sound like two different solutions.

If you've left it to the creator, he's obviously already working his magic.

The airstream smell like a rodent farm again or a few dead chipmunks let's see. I do like animals and the whole nature thing but I will kill the rodents and I eat meat (haven't tried chipmunk) squirrel rabbit cow pig chicken. No real difference between killing mice chipmunks or opossums then cockroaches in the airstream!

Yep, God gave man fire and pointed teeth for one reason. Cook and eat meat. No sushi nor overly rare food for me!

The two mice invasions we have suffered on the road were while camping without power. We bought a set (four) of those little electronic mouse chasers that plug into the wall sockets (from some big box store or the local Ace hardware )and have never had a mouse when we had power to the trailer.

Downy dryer sheets will keep rodents out. Place them all around. Under bed, dinette in cabinets.
