A Building Inspection
Our comprehensive site inspection is the foundation of an effective exclusion trapping for ending your squirrel problems. Delaware Squirrel Removal, a division of Buckeye Wildlife Solutions Central, always spends enough time on our initial visit so we, especially you, can fully understand all the problems outside and inside your home.
We’ll look for signs that will help you and us determine what attracted squirrels to your property which usually is food and shelter. Our checklist includes locating potential ground-level entry areas and gaps in siding, eaves, soffits, and openings in exposed vents and chimneys.
And if you have an attic, we will do a careful assessment since an attic is a squirrel’s best-loved spot to take sanctuary, especially if the squirrel is a mama ready to give birth to screaming kits.
Placing The Squirrel Trap During Exclusion Trapping
Given specific conditions putting a trap in the correct place demands years of experience but may still require experimentation. But, generally, our squirrel exclusion trapping technicians place live traps in a spot where squirrels have in the past done damage or, if we locate where the squirrel inhabits, close to that area.
Our Delaware Squirrel Removal Specialists tend to discover squirrels in enclosed areas like crawl spaces, eaves, soffits, vents, walls, attics, and sometimes chimneys. Any place we use a trap, it’s firmly secured, whether attached to your home or someplace on the ground.
We may use three styles of Live Traps used in exclusion trapping depending on the circumstances: Cage Trap, Repeater Trap, or a One-Way Door Trap.
Cage Traps are either one or two-door models placed on the ground, the floor of structures, or the flooring of attics. Once a squirrel enters the trap, a door closes behind it, and the squirrel cannot escape.
Repeater Traps attach to a building over a hole that a squirrel uses to access a building. Once a squirrel goes into the trap, a door closes and traps the squirrel. An added benefit is more than one squirrel fits in a repeater trap.
One-Way Door Traps attach to an opening a squirrel uses to enter and exit a structure. This trap lets the squirrel out of the building. But, a squirrel cannot return through the trap due to a one-way mechanism.
Baiting The Squirrel Trap For Exclusion Trapping
Since squirrels are omnivores, they eat a variety of foods. Squirrels eat and survive on plants, bird eggs, seeds, berries, fish, and animal flesh in the wild. Squirrels live in cities because they find food in garbage cans, dumpsters, and pet food bowls.
Our exclusion trapping experts have learned from experience squirrels love nut bait foods, and using nut butter decreases the chance of catching other animals that prefer meats or fish. One of our favorite exclusion trapping baits is Rodent Crack Bait by Viking product Supply, consisting of many types of nuts, including peanuts, plus secret all-natural ingredients to spice up this squirrel dream food.
But no matter what bait one uses, correctly positioning the bait in the trap is crucial to success. And at times, we must do more than bait a trap, like creating a trail of bait that seduces the squirrel into the trap.
Even though this baiting process appears simple, it’s not quite that simple since squirrel exclusion trapping is both art and skill.
Setting The Squirrel Trap
Effective squirrel exclusion trapping comes with years of trap-setting experience. Proper squirrel trapping takes meticulous observation since so many squirrel quirks may demand one form of setting a trap over another. Lucky for you, squirrels can’t outwit our Delaware Squirrel Removal experts. We get our squirrel every time!
Since we know how to use all three types of live traps, we have the necessary experience to properly set a trap for effectiveness, even for the tough to capture trap shy squirrels. Correctly setting the squirrel trap doors for each of the three styles of traps makes all the difference in the world for a successful capture.
Whether one-door, two-door, or one-way, each type of squirrel trap is set in its unique way, which an inexperienced wildlife control operator or homeowner might set incorrectly. Once we set the type of trap we choose to use, we test the trigger and close arms several times, assuring it works. After we know the set trap is working, we’ll firmly fix the squirrel trap on its surface.
Checking The Squirrel Trap
Part of our service is checking our squirrel traps over several days since trapping squirrels can happen quickly or may take a few days. When we need to leave our squirrel traps on, in, or around your buildings, we ask our customers to check them, if they are able, and inform us that we’ve successfully captured the furry rascal.
Since squirrels move around quite a bit at night, we suggest checking the traps in the morning. If one or more of our cages capture a squirrel, please don’t touch the cages since squirrels will attack through the cage and have a painful bite. If you have access to the trap with a captured squirrel, place a blanket over the squirrel trap. A covering will keep the squirrel calm until we can get there to remove the caged squirrel.
And please, if we have set traps for you, and have had successful trapping, never leave a squirrel trapped for an extended time before calling us, as that could lead to the squirrel suffering from dehydration which would be inhumane.
