This will help get rid of them. A shot placed correctly and guaranteed they aren't walking away. Not considered a firearm in many municipalities either.

Good luck
It took my dad all summer to catch the under his front steps with one of those traps. He ended up getting a bunch of young groundhogs before getting the mother in the fall.

That mama must have been pretty damned smart, then. I was catching those things every few days for awhile. Just put half an apple and some lettuce in there, and put it near where you see them the most...they can't resist. The best part is when you actually get to watch them waltz into the trap. I saw it a couple times...pure entertainment.

worst case scenario I know exactly where they live and I can always deal with them there.

They are REALLY hard to deal with. I know you don't want to kill them, but I never found an effective alternative. I used to use a 12 ga with heavy loads of #4s.
