Patience, patience.... You're getting too antsy.
Set the trap out in plain sight, DISABLED, and scatter some birdseed about. The birds will come and then attract the squirrels. Once you see the squirrels around, bait the trap but leave it disabled. When they start to take the bait, re-enable the trap.
It's called "bait and switch" and it also works for humans!
