Lightbulb How can I run away chipmunks?

How can I run away CHIPMUNKS? I have a friend who has a severe chipmunk infestation problem. They aren't just in his yard, the are in his crawlspace. Can anyone give me an idea short of poisoning?

Use a rat trap with some bait. Chip and Dale will no longer be a problem.

Or a small animal trap. Be careful of poisoning. If they crawl between the walls to die it will get stanky!

Take them to the boonies and let them go. Or "dispose" of them.

IMO the last option will keep them from becoming a problem in somebody elses yard or landscape. People live in boonies too! lol
