In reply to: Young squirrel behavior where traps are concerned? posted by Yank on 12:05:54 3/31/2012 from 22.214.171.124:
If they're eating the chum, they'll go into the trap. Leave them disabled and baited, the one in the attic, disguise it, put an open-ended box over it so they can't see the profile of the trap. When they take the bait, re-enable it. Leave the one outside disabled and baited. You could also use a box over it also. I use one of those large plastic milk carriers, several of them, modified so they can see right through. Leave bait in the middle. If you only have one trap, use the trap in the attic, the crates outside. Like a shell game. Don't put bait in all of them, make them hunt for it.
They will eventually go in!
