The simple squirrel traps are best in my opinion.

Victor rat traps with the yellow pan in a weasel box like set. Those electric mouse/rat traps work on them too but after a while the rodent juices short it out and it's toast.

Single door traps with pans are limited, pretty much a bait and wait trap. If you are going to use a cage trap for just about anything, double door traps are more versatile, more options, especially the swing panel traps that will catch when set vertically. One trapper had caught a few barn rats in snap traps. Then it stopped. He mounted the swing panel trap vertically and caught 8 more rats! Since animals follow structure, a double door swing panel trap placed along a wall is great for chipmunks, rats too. With a few black sunflower seeds they then will take squirrels. The panless powered double door traps have been great for barn rats as well as muskrats in water, yet another application.

Live traps for chipmunk inside with pets young children Safeguard 53070 Rodent Trap works great. Outside a box with victor pro traps is what I like.

I do most of my chipmunk work with ratinator colony traps. They work great. For den holes I use 1.5 inch rbg or those andro mole tunnel traps, put some seed down in them

Dog proofs laid down on their side with small bird seed works well too. Just keep that trigger extremely loose

I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

Neighbor had a huge infestation of chipmucks so took over 6 weasel boxes for him to use. As of this evening he's caught 60 of them in 12 days.

Since he grinds feed for his cattle, there is plenty to eat so I use something different to attract their attention. Peanut butter and sunflower seeds seem to be working for now. Sprinkle a few seeds by the entry hole and a few in the opening to get them to enter. But even with that temptation we still see them sitting on top of the boxes.

1"-2" should be good. Too close and they will jump over the pan, too far and you will catch them by the tail. Could be mice or birds setting of your traps too.
