Got a mom and at least one more young one in the breezeway between the garage and house. Managed to catch one of them in the garage rafters. But now the trap keeps getting activated, but nothing is in it.

So I put it outside along the path of in/out. The squirrel just sniffed the trap, hung from the eave and dropped to the ground (~8') to bypass the trap.

I have peanut butter in the trap. I put some nuts around the trap entrance to 'bait' it after it bypassed it this evening. When it came back, it squeezed around the trap and went back inside. I've seen two smaller ones as well and I'm guessing the 1st one I got was younger since the mom is not going in.

Any suggestions. Mom seems like a no go.
