What equipment is needed to trap a squirrel? If you have found that you have a squirrel inside your attic, shed or, perish the thought, inside your home, there is no doubt that you want to get rid of this critter. These animals can be quite dangerous to your health and safety if not removed, and pose an even bigger risk to your pets. Squirrels carry disease and will bite or scratch and your pet may find itself injured or sick.
The best course of action is to trap the animal and remove it from your property, but you may not know exactly how to do this. Here is some instructions to help make this happen.
Before doing anything you want to make sure that the squirrel is isolated. Now this step is different depending upon where they squirrel is located. If it is in your attic, shed or garage, your primary step is to get it to leave. If it goes you simply seal up its entryway and your problem is solved. However, if the squirrel is inside your home then you want to isolate it in as small of a room as possible so that it cannot get out and start roaming around your home. This is when a problem can really arise.
Get a trap at a home improvement store, if you don't already have one, and put it in the room. You want to make sure that the trap has some bait to it that will attract the squirrel. The best thing to use are seeds or nuts. Put some outside of the cage that lead into the cage. Once inside the trap will close and you have captured the squirrel.
If you cannot get or cannot afford to buy a trap, then the option is to try to improvise. This requires the assistance of another person. Use a large bag that is quite sturdy, and have the other person hold it open. Use a long stick or shovel to scare the squirrel into the bag. Once it is inside you simply make sure that you take it outside and get rid of it.
If you are forced to use this option then you want to make sure that use heavy duty gloves and cover all the exposed areas of your body. The squirrel may attack if it feels cornered, so you need to make sure that you and your partner are attired to protect yourself should this occur. You need to be safe.
