chipmunks are better than rabbits at math.

I agree with Alvin. I have 3 cats and no chippies (except the dead "gifts" left on the porch)

In my experience the chippies will just roll mothballs out of the way. The .22 is good, but they can be plenty quick and the blend in good.

Can you tell I've studied this before? My parents get lots of chippies..

The bestest way there is is rat traps. Start by baiting with peanut butter and sunflower seeds. Eventually work down to just glueing the sunflower seeds on. I'm not kidding, they'll come for sunflower seeds white glued to a rat trap.
For the first couple days be prepared to empty the trap several times a day.
Dad traps 20-30 chippies a year. This winter was hard so we're expecting a lower crop, but you never know, maybe the lowered population in his yard will attract more from other yards.

Try scattering moth balls around where you don't want them. Dryer sheets will work also but the odor from them don't last long. Good for inside a car you store for the winter also.

How are they with decimals, .22 for example?
