Default How To Get Rid of Chipmunks

I haven't seen Chip and Dale recently and I'm wondering if this is the reason why.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen that darn cat from across the street recently either.

Default Spider

Golden Orb Weaver - - - eeeeewwwwww I hate spiders.... beautiful and useful, but so very creepy....

From Wikipedia:
Golden orb-weavers reach sizes of 4.8 - 5.1 cm (1.5 - 2 in) in females, not including legspan, with males being usually 2/3 smaller (less than 2.5 cm, 1 in). The largest specimen ever recorded was a 6.9 cm (2.7 in) female N. clavipes (which is now debated to have been a new yet undocumented subspecies) from Queensland, that was able to catch and feed on a small-sized finch. In 2012 a large individual was photographed killing and consuming a half-meter-long brown tree snake in Freshwater, Queensland. Species from Taiwan have been known to reach over 5.7 inches in mountainous country.

Not quite as nasty as that, just a garden spider.

I haven't seen the spider since that day but I did manage to catch and relocate a chipmunk over the weekend. My neighbour is going to be so happy because it has been destroying their garden.
