Squirrel Baits

Squirrels can be a friend or a foe depending on how you look at things. Some people love the furry little creature and others would sooner have them all disappear off the face of the earth. Many ask me the best way to trap them and I say to use a havaheart trap or a live trap and bait it with a good attractant. A good squirrel attractant can be nuts, peanut butter, or a premix bait like Baron's brand squirrel bait. Premixes work well because they are tailor made for the target animal you are looking to capture. With any trapping program you have to have patience and a plan. Be sure you know where you are going to let the animal go because if you let it go too close to your house they will be back to settle in.
