  Hi Paul and list,

    I had a Chipmunk problem and after trying sticky traps I bought and 
tried a "Rat Zapper" electric trap. Within and hour after putting it 
down I got the little $%W^W%! That year I caught 9 of the little darlings.

I highly recommend it. There are various brands, check Amazon. Use NiMh 
batteries, they last longer than alkalines.
