Still out, but I'm sure they'll try to get back in.
I need some tips for catching them in the yard. I have not even had a nibble, and I placed one trap at the base of a tree one ran up to his nest! I've tried various locations in the yard: on the deck rails where they sit and eat nuts all day, under the deck, on the deck stairs, on the swingset, at the base of trees, in the yard wide open. They are just not interested in the chum or the tasty food inside.
Are they not hungry? Are they too trap-smart? Are these the same ones which would not take the bait in the attic?
I have a 1/3 acre residential lot full of trees. I see squirrels all the time, but it is possibly only a few I see...John's pages say they're somewhat territorial, so it should only be a few in an acre of two or three lots, huh?
John mentioned 'disguising' the traps. Can you elaborate on this?
