I need to kill a mouse in my garage. Can I set a mousetrap without attracting chipmunks? I've read that mouse traps aren't effective for chipmunks. -- does that mean that the trap would half-kill a chipmunk or that they wouldn't work at all?

I just don't want my wife stumbling on a half dead chipmunk, I don't think it would go over well if the chipmunk had to suffer.

I guess I could get some "ethical" traps and drown the mice.  :shrug:

Yes, I doubt your wife would be too pleased with that. Consider getting a 'Have A Heart' trap from Home Depot and then releasing the little fella in a neighbors gargage. J/K maybe better a wooded area near your house?
