Baton Rouge Squirrel Removal

For the welfare of your situation, and the squirrels, in some cases it's best to hire a pro.

We have a squirrel in the house. It has been suggested that it is a tree squirrel because we never see it but it is active at night. We have a squirrel trap. It manages to take the bait and not trip the trap. We tried larger bait so that it couldn't take it away. Last night (part of a potato) was moved from behind the trip mechanism, had been partially chewed, the door was closed - but no squirrel inside. Is it so big that the door only partially closes onto it and it is able to squirm out? Is it so big that it can reach over the trap mechanism to get the bait without setting it off? Do we need a longer 2 door trap? Any help would be appreciated.

My response: I have a few questions. First of all, if you never see the animal, how do you know it's a squirrel? Squirrels are usually active during the daytime. Unless you are talking about a Flying Squirrel - they are nocturnal. Rats, raccoons, and opossums also get into homes and are nocturnal. Second, when you say in the house, do you mean the attic, or part of the living space? It sounds like you're using a single-door cage trap, probably of small size. There are many reasons an animal can trip a trap without getting caught, but most common it is because the bait has been grabbed from the outside of the trap, setting it off. Or, as you guessed, the animal is large enough that its rump prevents the door from closing fully! Without an inspection of the attic, for footprints or droppings, we don't know what animal you are dealing with. If something is taking bait, though, you can set a larger trap or put barriers on either side of the trap to prevent reach-ins. If you catch the animal, you'll know what kind it is! Most importantly though, you have to find out how it's getting in your house, and seal those entry holes shut. In fact, you never even have to trap the animal - you can just set a one-way exclusion door on the entry/exit hole, and problem is solved with minimal stress to the animal!

David: Thank you for your prompt reply. We have had squirrels in the house before and I was always able to trap them. They were not shy,. I saw them in the daytime. This time the first indication was a little pile of pine cone petals in a corner. This happened a few times and we set the trap. We glued down cereal crackers, etc. with peanut butter or honey and he had a nice feast and left again. My son thought perhaps he was big enough to reach over the trip mechanism to help himself. When we tried a pecan - my son heard him rolling it around the floor. He is in the house and I haven't been able to find how he got in. For the most part, our ceilings follow the roof line. So he wouldn't be able to move easily because that space has 2" by somethings every 16 or so inches. But that is not impossible. I can't check around outside because there is 5 feet of snow all around except the front door. A trapper friend suggested that it might be a flying squirrel because they are nocturnal. Would it be that it is too light to set it off? My son used a potato thinking that it would be too big for him to take out of the trap. It was nibbled but stayed in place. The trap wasn't set off. Last night I used half of a potato' He moved it over the mechanism, halfway to the door. The door was closed but he wasn't in it. I don't think he could roll the potato because once side was flat. I see on the net that there is a long 2 door trap but I don't think Canadian Tire carries them. My trapper friend is a pilot who runs a trap line in the winter. He was here for ground school last week and will be back when the fire season opens in April. Maybe he would be able to bring a larger trap. Thankyou for your help
