I just created an access hole to get into my attic. ( came out great! )
Last night I placed a trap up there but I'm wondering if I should have
baited it differently?
I know its squirrels running around up there.
The trap is roughly 7" x 7" x 30" (guess, I didn't measure it) both ends
open and there is a platform in the middle that triggers both ends to close.
I used a piece of wire to fasten half an apple to this platform then smeared
peanutbutter on the apple.
Both ends of the trap are open.
Would it be better to close one end and put the bait back at the closed end
so the squirrel would have to go over the trigger to get to the bait.
What would be the best bait to use?
How smart are squirrels? If one saw another get trapped would they know to
avoid the trap?
Now that I have access to the attic I'm hoping I can deal we these pests
TIA for any squirrel trapping advice?
