So I think I caught all the easy squirrels using the information on this site.

I believe the remaining ones are trap shy. I chum the area and watch the squirrels take all the chum but they will not go in the cage. I can easily see both traps from my upstairs window.

So I did completely wrap 2 traps and like I said before caught 1 squirrel and 1 possum.

I would like to come up with a better method for covering the traps. How do you leave both sides open? Is the idea to create a tunnel with light? or a darkened tunnel so the squirrels do not realize they are entering the trap?

Although I have caught about 20 squirrels using the information here ... I still have about 6 rogue squirrels eating my 8 Japanese Maple trees. While 6 may not sound like a lot I am shocked by how much damage is done each and every day. I have concerns that 3 of the trees may not make it ... and they are 50-60 years old.

I am desperate to catch the last few.

I have been trapping for more than 4 weeks now.
