Squirrels are mildly territorial. They only get ambitious when they have pups. And even then you could have several females nesting in an attic.
You can trap either way. Inside or outside. Trapping inside means you usually only catch the offenders, rather than an 'innocent bystander.'
When you have caught what you think is all of them, use a piece of cardboard or some newspaper to block off the vent. If it stays undisturbed for a few days, you have probably caught them all.
Seal off attic vents inside your attic. Use heavy-duty half inch hardware clothe, cut it to fit and staple it up there. I show just that on my squirrel pages.
