Since two days ago I've all of the sudden started catching squirrels. So far 4 have been caught and transported to another realm of existence. The fourth was caught using a trap without any fresh bait.

As of two nights ago I still heard the squirrel in my attic, but didn't hear anything last night. I should point out that in frustration I lobbed a dozen or so cotton balls soaked in fox urine into the corner where the squirrel was nesting. So maybe it's temporarily gone.

I ordered 3 conibears and am considering a tube trap for the gutter of my garage (near the garden).

All four squirrels caught were males. I've heard conflicting opinions on whether the one in my attic is likely male or female.
