Get Rid of Squirrels

How to get rid of squirrels? The best way to get rid of squirrels is the same as getting rid of moles that is by trapping them. I still can't get my Catahoula Leopard Dog to catch or trap a squirrel even though I say squirrel she is looking up in the trees but not willing to climb but when I say mole she'll go for the freshest mole hill and dig for China ... go figure. The only difference is to use a live trap when trapping squirrels. There are many commercial traps available online and you can find them on this site or locally. The best bait is dried corn on the cob. Catch and release usually by taking them for a ride to the outskirts of town where there are trees. A friend of mine takes the squirrels and a favorite bait is peanuts in the shell. After a few catches the squirrels usually catch on and will start digging under the trap to get the bait. Just attatch a piece of plywood to the bottom of the trap. Use gloves when handling the traped squirrel.
