What to do about a cage-shy (hard to trap) squirrel - So you set up a trap, put out some bait and are now just waiting for the squirrel to come up to the trap, walk inside, and get caught. Your plan is perfect and you are all set and now all you need is for the squirrel to cooperate and get into the cage so that you can get rid of it by whatever means you have chosen.
There is just one problem. The squirrel is refusing to cooperate. It will not go into the cage and so your incredible plan is being thwarted. What is to be done now? The truth is that sometimes squirrels are smarter than we give them credit for. Maybe they have been trapped before, or maybe they simply believe, instinctively, that this is not a safe place to go. When that happens they are not going in that cage and your squirrel problem will continue. So what can be done to get it to enter the cage?
This is a challenge but there are things that can be done. That squirrel does not have to win. You can defeat it if you act intelligently and do some things that are bound to get it caught. Here are some tips for you.
The likelihood is that if the squirrel is not entering the cage, then it has another source of food somewhere else. If it does not have to get the bait you laid out then it will not, so you need to look for and eliminate other places where the animal may be finding food. This can mean ensuring that your garden is more adequately secured, removing bird feeders, and securing garbage can lids tightly. If you do these things you will be taking away other sources and it will be turning to your bait as its only option.
Also make sure that you do not stop there. If there are other things that you think might make a tasty snack for a squirrel then make sure you remove these. You also want to make sure that your bait is something that the squirrel will really want. Don't just choose things that you think will attract the squirrel. You need to think like this animal. Squirrels want to store things so they want food that can last. This means that nuts and seeds, especially ones with shells, are the perfect things to use. Put a little outside the trap in a trail leading to the cage and you will see the results you want.
