    A

    The Wilco Ground Squirrel Trap is a very good multi catch live trap that will trap up to 12 ground squirrels at a time before it needs to be emptied. 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.

    Q
    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?

    Q
    How do I get rid of 13 strip ground squirrels?
    I have a dog and do not want to use something that she could dig up. She has been digging up moles in the yard.
    A

    If you want to bait for ground squirrels, then you would need to use the bait in tamper resistant stations so that dogs or other non-target animals would not have access to the bait. We do sell Wilco Ground Squirrel Bait and Bait Stations. (This bait is registered only in select Western states.) The Wilco Ground Squirrel Trap would be a great option for you since it will hold up to 12 squirrels at a time.

    Q
    Will the Wilco Ground Squirrel Trap be effective for trapping rats?
    A

     

    The Wilco Ground Squirrel Trap  will fit rats as long as they are as small as the ground squirrel.  Live catch traps are a great way to remove rats from your structure without harming the rodent. You will need to check with your local authorities to see what the ordinances are on catching and releasing rats in your region. Live catch trapping is not effective if you have a large infestation or if you are trying to trap small juvenile rats.
