There are all sorts of ideas on how to remove squirrels from the attic. While many people who have had the same problem resort to professional services, you may want to save money and time by trapping the squirrels instead.
The first thing you need to know is what sort of trap you would want to use. There should be a variety of traps you could use that are available in your local hardware store. Ask anyone there for their advice on how to remove squirrels from the attic, and what traps are best for capturing these elusive creatures.
Most people who have needed to get rid of squirrels in their own attics would advise you to use smaller traps. Squirrels will only become more panicky and more likely to hurt themselves if you use larger traps to bring them in.
Place these traps in less conspicuous places. Squirrels are always wary, and there is definitely less of a chance that they would approach a trap placed in the middle of your attic.
You will need to place slivers of food to attract these squirrels into the trap. There is no chance of them entering the trap, without any peanuts or walnuts inside. You can also use crackers, crusts of bread, or slices of apple; just make sure that these tidbits are placed far enough in the cage, so they would need to enter the cage to get them, as opposed to them being able to get the food from the outside.
Once you capture a squirrel, you would need to relocate it away from your home. Unless your municipality’s regulations would only allow you to release them in your yard (in this case, you would need to make sure they do not make it back inside your house), you will need to move the squirrels a few miles away to deter them from coming back.
