There are many small mammals found in our area. In order to respond to your question we need to have a more positive identification. Do the animals you are asking about burrow into the ground? Do they make mounds? Are they tree dwellers? What do they appear to be eating? Do they dig in your lawn (small round holes?). Do you see them running across your property? Long tails? Are they damaging anything?

Is there a chance you might have a photo of the animal?

Please answer these questions and I will try to make suggestions for controlling the animal.

Thanks. Looking forward to getting your response.
