Do you have space in your life for a dog? A terrier would just love to harass some ground rodents. You can train them to not kill if you don't want second-hand chipmunk blood on your, er, hands.
Otherwise if you have space, lure them away with something that they like more than your garden. Fruit and nut trees in your zone 5?
Good luck! Cute little terrorists aren't they?

I have used a little syrup or honey when I've done it so using a parchment paper on the cookie sheet for easier clean up. And doing several batches on a tray you can get by with one piece of parchment for it all.
