Hi, Unfortunately, I bought a cheap squirrel trap that they escape from as soon as I pick up the trap. I need a good quality, easy to release trap for these pests. Which one would you recommend?
We have several that work fine. It kind of depends on what type of squirrel you are tring to catch.
As listed in our TREE SQUIRREL CONTROL article, the best one is our LT5518RD. You can also get it with no rear sliding door; it’s model number LT5518. Either is recommended for standard gray, red or flying squirrels.
In our GROUND SQUIRREL CONTROL article, you’ll see a larger sized trap listed, the LT7824, which is better for this squirrel which can grow a bit larger. Still, the LT5518RD can work on them; it will depend on just how big the ones are in your region.
Don’t forget a good lure like our TRAPPERS CHOICE PECAN PASTE as it really helps get them to notice your set.
