What can I use to trap ground squirrels?

I have a cabin in Strawberry, Arizona and I continually have ground squirrels digging under the foundation of the house and also digging under a shed I have on a different part of the property. I've tried cayenne pepper, repellent sprays, etc., nothing works. I don't really want to kill them, but I'm getting to the point that that might be the only choice. Any suggestions on what I should use?


The Wilco Ground Squirrel Trap would be a good option for you.  This is a multi-catch live trap that will trap up to 12 ground squirrels at a time.  . For bait, we would recommend using peanut butter, nuts, sunflower seeds, popcorn, cereal grains, apples, almond extract on bread, or anise oil (1-2 drops) on bread.
