Damage to squirrels do? Squirrels are very cute until they become a
pest around structures. If they enter a building, they
are capable of doing damage to a multitude of objects
because of their chewing behavior. The most common entry
point for squirrels is the attic, which they may enter
by chewing a hole into a gable or other
susceptible area. In other cases, squirrel will chew
into soffits areas and make themselves quite comfortable
in the attic or soffit, they may nest and eventually
reproduce with a litter of several young. In an attic,
there is potential for damage to stored goods as well
as to wiring with the potential for fire due to gnawing
of those wires. Droppings from squirrels may also be
a nuisance. If
squirrels enter a home through a door or garage, they
may do damage to furniture and upholstery in an effort
to escape. In other cases, squirrels may do damage outdoors
by chewing on structures, screens, lawn furniture, plants
or digging in the grass.
bait should I use for squirrels?
Cereal, grains, nuts (especially peanuts) sunflower
seeds, anise oil (a drop or two on bread), shelled corn,
apples work well for bait. Mixed
peanut butter and oatmeal or peanut butter and molasses,
trapper swears by almond extract on bread as bait to
tempt the nearest squirrel.
should I place squirrel traps?
Check the route that is used most often and set the
trap in the appropriate place.
You may have to trap several squirrels to solve the
problems that you are experiencing.
Do not leave the squirrel in the trap overnight as they
are a nervous animal and may die. Check the trap often
and if in agreement with local and state laws, release
the animal in a suitable habitat at least 5 miles away.

are very cute in their natural habitat. They do
become a nuisance when they use their amazing
problem solving abilities to get to a tasty food
source or comfortable living arrangement and invade
residential and business structures. When inside
a structure they have the ability to inflict costly
and hazardous damage due to their instinctual
chewing behavior, damaging everything from soffits
and gables to electrical wiring and plumbing.
This structural damage is not only expensive to
repair but can result in deadly fires and structural
squirrels on the roof, getting into the structure
through small holes or gaps or hearing "activity"
in your attic or roof space, early morning or
late afternoon, point to a serious problem which
must be addressed as a potential problem. Squirrels
are also "family" oriented and if you have one
squirrel, in reality you probably have several,
as squirrels are very social and live as a family
unit. Therefore is important to trap and relocate

Yesterday, we finally baited and set the trap with their favorite food (apple pie covered with cinnamon powder). The first squirrel was in the trap in about 15 minutes! In all, we trapped four squirrels within 8 hours. We probably could have caught all four within 2-3 hours, except that I spent a lot of time driving back and forth to the release area about six miles away. I released all four at the same spot, which is in a vast open area with lots of trees, ground cover and ponds. I’m sure they’ll enjoy life there much more than in my back yard.
You were sure right about them being totally food-driven. I put the bait on aluminum-foil “trays” placed behind the trip-plate via the rear sliding door. Once they started eating the bait, they didn’t even notice the trap was shut behind them until they ran out of food. In every case, they not only ate the chunks of apple pie, but also licked the foil clean…no muss, no fuss.
The whole operation went really well…and the trap worked flawlessly.
Thanks again for your tips."
I received my squirrel cage/trap Friday and all I can so it is a wonderful product. It works perfect and is well made. So far I have evicted 6 squirrels and have only a few to go. It’s so easy and after trapped if you place a towel over the trap, the squirrel quickly calms. When releasing I simply life the towel off the exit end of the trap and open the door. The animal quickly leaves and heads for the closet tree. I’m having allot of fun and at the same time removing these cute pests to a better location for me and my neighbors.
