Flying squirrels are just a pain to trap. They do not go for bait well. I keep getting rid of them and they keep coming back. I must have crawled around the ground and ladder checked every inch of the eves and sills twenty times each and still cannot find where they get in.
I know from experience they can escape a small have- a- heart trap that looks impossible. The little buggers got in the attic again, this time hitting a bag of ultra bee. Give them what they want. They even go back into the trap a second time to get trapped again. (Failed transfer into a metal 5 gallon paint can.)
Four in 3 nights relocated 10 miles to the other side of a river into a dilapidated barn. Looking forward to a quiet night.
