What are my options?  Do you think the bird netting will keep them

My reply:

?????   What type of netting are you using that keeps bees away?   I 
have always been amazed at our bumblebees ability to fly between the 
little squares.  They appear larger then the hole, bu they just sort 
of hold in the wings and drop through at my place.   I watched them 
for quite a time one afternoon.  (ut oh, I just gave more credance to 
the point that Nafexers are flakes :)

Anyway, I have yet to meet a "real dog" that does not absolutely love 
to crunch and munch chipmunks.  Heck in the summer I don't think we 
ever had to feed old sarge.  Between his love of apples, pears, 
mulberries and chipmunks I don't recall him eating much dry food.  I 
can't ever recall anything in the yard but a few tree rats, and he got 
his fair share of those also.

I vote for borrowing a dog.   

You might also try baiting a 5 gallon pail set in the ground a foot or 
so with peanut butter and providing a ramp up to the rim.  I recall 
they like peanut butter.

Wishing you the best,
