John,

I did what you suggested in your last message. Yesterday, I baited the traps (2)and I left chum and sunflower seeds around the traps, but I left them wide open all day. When I checked the traps, the chum was gone.
Today, I did the same thing, but this time I put in fresh bait and set the traps. They were out all day, since 09:30 am until 5:30 pm EST, but when I checked them, the chum was gone, but the traps were not sprung (empty). I know the bugger(s) are in my attic because I still hear them running around. I do not have access to my attic, so I must trap them outside.
I read your trapping information re: disguising the traps, etc, so I will try that. The traps are are around, and hidden by, trash cans, but so far, no luck. Given that I have had a lot of success trapping squirrels in the past, thanks to you and your board, I am getting pretty frustrated. I am a patient guy, but I REALLY want to get those suckers! Is there a chum that you can recommend that is a sure fire squirrel attracter? Peanuts, Walnuts, Caviar? At this point I will try anything.
Thanks ang regards,

Yank
