Damn squirrels are tricky, huh? Even after YEARS doing squirrels, they still surprise me!

The "smell" is what you want... So the underside, and just get the smell on it. I have also used vanilla flavoring if I didn't want the danger of missing a catch. Only a tiny bit - again, the smell is what you want.

You might also want to work on that trap, make that a hair trigger. I always had several traps that were favorites. Hava-Hart changed suppliers a few years ago and their quality assurance has suffered. Now I return at least 50% of the traps that come in. Many of my returns are because the traps are either mishandled in shipping or are "tippy" and make some squirrels jumpy.

Good luck. And let me know what works. Us squirrel trappers have to stick together!
