Astute observation.... Most squirrels live in the trees. However, if you live near, say, a public park, the chances go up a bit... People tend to leave captured squirrels off at a public park. Which, of course, gives you more squirrels looking for homes in a structure.

And squirrels, especially "new" squirrels are curious, so even unbaited traps can look innocent and interesting to squirrels. Leftover smells can help too, but it's mostly their innate curiousity that does them in. I always try to integrate that into my trapping methods.
