Squirrel Trap be sure you thoroughly understand
the squirrel trap directions, supplied with
each trap. Peanut butter or snicker bar is considered the best bait for
a catching a squirrel in your loft or garden. Placing a teaspoonful of
peanut butter through the bars onto the treadle or a cube of snicker bar
clipped to the treadle plate with a paper clip usually works best.
Always place the squirrel trap on a stable surface, such as the ground, a flat roof or in the loft space on a solid board. If you can put up with the squirrel's antics for a few days leave the squirrel trap open but not baited, with the door tied up, so the squirrel will accept it as part of its normal area. You should also consider what if any other animals might be in the area of the squirrel cage trap. Since a cat, dog, hedgehog or even a bird may be tempted into your trap. (We have been told of catching magpie's in our squirrel traps) Ideally you must be able to see or hear the squirrel trap operate, so it would be best to set it only when you have the time to watch or listen for the squirrel trap to operate.
In the UK it is an offense not to check on the trap at least once per day

Your first step to catch your Grey Squirrel is to do a little detective work. Find the path that the squirrel is using to your loft or where ever it shouldn't be. To find this path, you must first watch your grey squirrel's routine. Normally, a grey squirrel will leave the nest at daybreak or shortly after in search of food. If you can get up this early and stay awake it's the best time to watch and wait. Find a place where you can view your house and the squirrel's entrance hole. Be very still, and watch how the squirrel gets to or from it's home to your's. E.g. climbing, jumping or both. Once you discover this path, you should place the squirrel trap accordingly.
