Catching squirrels with a net
If you have ever wondered how to catch squirrels with a net, you are not alone. Most of us want to feed these tasty creatures because they provide great protein. Perhaps they have taken over your attic or your garden. Whatever the case may be, squirrel trapping is a great way to solve your problem and enjoy a tasty meal. Follow these steps and you’ll be well on your way to squirrel trapping success.
Sealing off entry points
Sealing off entry points for squirrels is essential if you want to keep them out of your home. Squirrels are able to fit through small holes, such as those under eaves and around window sashes. These animals can chew through these gaps to gain access to your home and damage your belongings. If you suspect your home is an ideal home for these pests, you can use a flashlight to look under your eaves. After you have located the entry point, you can use a high-resolution security camera to find where the squirrels are going.
Baiting a squirrel trap with peanut butter
To attract squirrels to a trap, bait it with peanut butter or other edible lures. You can purchase peanut butter at the grocery store for under $5. You can spread the peanut butter on the pressure plate so that the animal cannot get it out. This will prevent it from slipping off the trigger mechanism. Place the trap near a pathway that the animal frequents. Make sure the trap is within reach of the animal’s entry points.
Using a trunk guard
Squirrels do not eat fruit from trees, but a plastic cylinder around a tree’s trunk will keep them from digging under it. These protective barriers should be at least five centimeters deep, so they cannot climb over them. For mature trees, metal flashing can be placed around the tree’s base. In any case, these protective barriers are not an effective way to prevent squirrels from destroying your tree.
Using a mist netting
If you are considering installing a squirrel do net in your yard, it is important to purchase a mist netting in a size appropriate for the area you are planning to place it. Ideally, the mist net will cross the flight paths of birds and bats. There are several different ways to install a mist netting, and it may depend on the application.

Using a thick blanket
A squirrel net is a great solution if your attic is the perfect place for your pets. A thick blanket can be used to wrap a squirrel tightly, but make sure to avoid pressing it too hard. If you find a baby squirrel on the ground, you can place it on a blanket or another thick material to protect it from spooking. However, if the weather is really cold, you may need to get creative!
Using a box
If you’ve been trying to get rid of squirrels without success, consider using a box. Squirrels can squeeze through small holes, so building a box with a hole around the size of a quarter-inch square is ideal. Place the box on a tree, high up in the tree, preferably six or more feet off the ground. If you can’t get a box to hang it from a tree, you can use 1/4-inch hardware cloth.
