They are most likely 13-Lined Ground Squirrels. You can try either rat traps in the area with Peanut butter and nut seeds or you can get a bucket full of water, cover the top of the water with seeds and make a path so they can climb up to the bucket, fall in, and then no more squirrel. wildlifedamage.uwex.edu/pdf/Chipmunk-GroundSquirrel.pdf That document has a picture on page 2
