Shortly after Christmas during a real cold spell hitting about -10F, a grey squirrel moved in under our house. January has been really cold and he's kept a pretty low profile, only moving about every 2 or 3 days or so when we hear him scratching and clawing at the floor. We've only seen him outside once when the weather warmed up a bit. I got a trap and baited it with peanut butter bread but he has yet to go anywhere near it. And I laid some peanuts and bread around the hole where I think he got in, but they've been untouched. Is it common for squirrels to stay in their nests for such a long time if the weather is cold? Is there anything I can do to encourage it to come out or do I just have to wait? Thanks.
