Well, if you're using the 1030/40, you cover the trap with a wooden/cardboard box, open on both ends, like a "tunnel" - most birds will leave that alone. Make sure it's weighted down and won't topple.
If you have been baiting/trapping for awhile, the squirrels are looking for you.... They won't be put off (for long) by your box/tunnel. In fact, you probably won't even have to bait it, they'll look so hard they'll set it off just by looking. I'll guess that more than 20 percent of my catches are with unbaited traps. Squirrels are curious!
