I’ve got several squirrels going in my attic. I see them entering this hole that looks like it’s under the roof shingle behind the gutter. In my attick its tough to get over to that section. I hear them moving around most mornings and evenings but I’m not seeing any droppings so I don’t know where to trap them. I want to get one of your traps but where should I set it?
Fortunately squirrels are usually easy to trap. The key is making your set as close as possible to where they’re feeding. You didn’t say how they’re getting onto your roof but you probably know already. If it’s a tree, watch them to see where they come down the tree to walk on the ground. At the base of that tree would be a great place to make the set.
Now if they’re climbing the side of the home or going up a down spout or other pipe, I’d recommend at the ground where they land.
Since you’ll be making your set outside, get the LT5518RD Trap and bait it with something like a nut or bird seed they’re finding locally. Add some some PECAN PASTE to the set as explained in our article and you should get quick results.
