    What is the best trap for chipmunks or squirrels in a neighborhood where I can't shoot?

    Use the small size Havaheart or Tomahawk live traps. Set them up and prop the traps open. Bait them with sunflower seeds and allow the squirrels and chips to come and go feeding as they please for about a week, keeping the bait supply fresh and plentiful. Once you have them coming to the buffett set the trap for real and begin to carry away the pests on after the other.

      Live traps work best. Just throw in some bait the rodents like, set it where they are and check it the next day. Live traps aren't too expensive.

            My father used to use rat traps, but that was before live traps were very popular.

                go to any wal mart or appliance store and get a live trap or if your looking to dispose of them get clever and maybe dig a hole in the ground where they can't get out or a suggestion I've heard is put a bucket with a wide funnel and let them crawl inside for bait and they won't no how to get out but it has to be next to a tree or bird feeder where they can climb down into it.

                  What is a problem for me with havahart traps, is that the squirrels would be hesitant to go in, so they just reach through the holes on the side and grab the food. So I places leaves, sticks, branches anything, all over the sides so that inorder to get the bait, they have to go inside. Sometimes chipmunks are to light to shut the gate. Also, peanut butter is king of bait
