    Why Not Convert to Metric?

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    Thread Starter: Allan Speers

    Long story short: We have a HUUUGE family of chipmunks that now live all around our house. I guess it keeps them safe from predators. They aren't cute anymore, causing a lot of damage to the lawn, shrubs, etc. Ca anyone suggest the "best" way of eliminating them? I don't care about keeping...
