Hi, I am using a one door spring loaded havahart trap to rid my 85 year old friend and neighbor of his attic squirrels. I used shelled peanuts in a magnetic mechanics dish in the trip along with chumming around the unit. 4 days in a row, 4 squirrels! I was ecstatic....well, I think there is only one left, he hears her in the wall ( bad sign), every time I check the trap all the bait is gone, and no squirrel. I tried the peanut butter sandwich and still stealing bait but no squirrel. Last night upon checking, the trap was tripped, the sucker had burrowed under the trap ( loose insulation) and gotten the few extra shelled peanuts out that I had laid beyond the trip mech. She is cagey, that's why I figure it's gotta be Mom.
