Got any? The only ripe tomato I've seen so far is the one they didn't quite finish eating.

You're trying to trap them, eh? Be prepared to trap and remove 100 or more before you notice any effect. You'll be amazed at how many there are for each one that you see.
I'll have to check that thread though before I just quit growing.

According to gardening threads I read, have to agree. Heard of guys catching 50 a day in traps Lots of them give up due to moral issues, and having to cart them off miles away. Then there are others that just drop the traps in a tub of water.. that's why I suggested the Chipmonk Swimming pool. at least their diving in by their own choice

Well, after trapping one today, and having the little bastage chew thru the TINY hole (that is part of the hair trigger) in the wooden door, making it a bigger and escaping, the "swimming pool" was just set up.....
I will say that the mesh bags of smelly soap hanging from the stakes is working, though, at least for the 4 plants I hung them on......they have left those plants alone since they've been up, and been going for the other ones.
Unfortunately, I have about 20 plants, so I guess I gotta go buy more soap.......

Steve -----try the Crab Boil with them but don't over cook as they tend to be kind of tough
The 5 gal bucket is kind of cruel. I prefer a good pellet gun with well placed shots=no suffering----more sporting too

I found this thread using Google.

Make sure you decapitate chipmunks quickly and strip their fur off. Hold them upside down to make sure all the blood runs out.
Save the fur - you can make a nice pair of gloves with them later.
With a sharp knife, de-bone the little guys, but save the bones. Once you have your pile of bones, put them in a 2 qt pan and boil them. You will use this as your stock for your chili.
Chop up meat into fine pieces or grind.


  • 2 lb. Chipmunk meat pieces
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 2 cans (16 oz. each) Dark Red Kidney Beans, undrained
  • 2 cans (16 oz. each) Pinto Beans, undrained
  • 2 cans (16 oz. each) Black Beans, undrained
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
  • 2 envelopes chili seasoning mix 1/2 tsp.
  • Ground Cinnamon 1-1/4 cups Sour Cream
Use your broth you made from the bones to boil the meat in a large sauce pot on low heat.
Make sure you do this slowly, use a slow cooker to make the meat tender. Cook for about 3 hours on low heat. Then let it set for 30 minutes and skim off any fat.
Add onion and green pepper; cook until tender, bring up to a low boil on medium heat, stirring frequently.
ADD all remaining ingredients except sour cream; mix well. Bring to boil; cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
SPOON into soup bowls; top with sour cream.

Gee, I feel guilty for having started a thread this way in hindsight. But the overnight marinade in water and sunflower seeds was the clear winner. They prefer the cherry tomatoes this year, of which we have an abundance, so just monitoring situation closely for now.

little bitty chipmunks on little bitty rotisseries, over little bitty fires. With Oompa Loompas standing there, brushing a mop on them with a tiny little mop,

The whole thing kind of reminds me of a Bourdain episode in Peru with the grilled Guinea pigs. Leaves me wondering how they'd be with a good overnight marinade and a little char on them.
