The maintenance guys don't know what they're talking about. The condo might have its own rules, but there is no law in NJ that says you can't trap squirrels.
There ARE rules as to what you can do with the trapped squirrels, you can't translocate them, you have to either put them down or turn them loose ON YOUR PROPERTY. And you can only put them down in certain ways - best to get an exterminator to do this.
This is why you are best doing these things out of the public eye, because no matter what "the rules" may say, there are LOTS of people that can make it extremely difficult for you, no matter if you're following those "rules" or not.
When you leave squirrel traps out, unattended, put an open-ended box over it, that will keep birds out.
