You have to adapt and use your brain. Most of the time you don't have to, sometimes you do.

Disguise the trap, use "shell-game" traps, adapt your methods to their habits. Go thru my squirrel pages (and this message board) again, see if you can pick up some ideas.

I rarely have a problem, but when I do, it can frustrate me to no end, but it also makes me concentrate on what needs to be done. Keeps you on your toes, so to speak.

A job we finished earlier this summer was one of these. Former owner of the house must have trapped them too, my customer found a couple of traps in the attic of the garage.

Squirrels would not use those traps nor ours. I had a friend drop off some lumber debris with some discarded lunch remains within it. I set a couple of traps around and within it. I had 4 squirrels within 3 days, that was all he was having problems with. He wouldn't let us remove the construction debris for months, he was afraid they would return.

This is only one instance. Look at your problem in depth and you HAVE to outsmart him.
