Put the outside chum in a different place (on the outside) when he takes that, remove ALL chum and also the bait inside the trap, so there is NO bait around. Make him hunt for it. Maybe he'll go in looking.... (You gotta outsmart the squirrels!)
Disguising the trap could help too. Put a trap outside, leave it baited and DISABLED - so he can go in and out. Keep it baited. That will (supposedly) acclimate him to the trap.
