I live in Northern New Jersey.

I have 8 very old Japanese Maple Trees on my property. They have probably been here 40-50 years.

The squirrels are eating the branches and leaves off the trees. I come home and I am ankle deep in leaves.

My heart is breaking. The very existence of these trees are in danger.

I have purchased 4 havahart cages and am having some luck.

My biggest problem is the most aggressive chewers are traveling by overhead utilities. The phone and cable lines go through my trees. There is nothing I can do.

In spite of my catching efforts I go out in the morning and literally 20+ squirrels run out of my trees.

It is obvious that the squirrels are not touching the ground. Any suggestions on how I can catch them?

We did try to put the traps in the trees for a few weeks but did not even get a nibble.

I did call some exterminators but they are of the opinion that they are coming to the trees for a purpose other than eating.
