HE CAME HOME! Now what you have to do is trap him/her, right in your attic, so you'll only have to take care of the ones that enter your home. Trap the first one and if you haven't caught any more within about 3-4 days, you can also use the additional option of moving your trap outside and get a few more.
At any rate, pretty much all you need to know, to get rid of these rascals, is on my two squirrel pages, above.
Can't help you regarding the trap you have. Perhaps you can either learn its idiosyncrasies, or return it. I do prefer the 1040, it's actually all I work with. I also sell it, but you can sometimes get it locally. Get two - don't be cheap.

Here's a link to more squirrel removal information and pictures from Rid-A-Critter, an Atlanta animal control company.
