    The backstory is that we ran a very popular webcam several years ago that won a top 10 in the world award so EVERYTHING has a webcam. Old cell phones come in handy as wireless webcams. Besides, I can tell when the trap is occupied.

    I did hear at least one more running around this morning so I expect a customer tonight.

    LOL! You might have MANY customers. I think tomahawkflyer managed to trap 18! They are very cute, curious and FAST! Yep, it all starts with a name...and then youíre touched by squirrel magic!

    Thank you for helping them....your life may never be the same.....in a very good way!

    Oh boy! We're watching webcam and the next customer was RIGHT there sticking little paws through the screen and almost went inside. Had to do some reconfiguring the bait. This is exciting!

    That's the idea. And you guys can watch too. No idea how much traffic will crash it tho. If you look at the top of the trap, there's a little hoop with a rod through it, the rod holds the door open. If it's tripped the rod will be gone. The white wall is where they climb down.

    "If you get one, zip tie all the corners in place. "

    A word of caution retiredinsaline...these little sharp toothed rascals can gnaw right through those zip ties in case you're relying on them for security.

    Thanks for taking care of them!

    As I say, we have a wide variety of domestic and homeless wild pocket animals. We take our dominion over animals seriously.

    Figured as much with the plastic ties. Waiting for my enameled craft wire to replace them - the zip ties let me put the wire in place without stretching the wire.

    Caught the first one sitting in the food bowl munching some veggies.

    Made a nice little hammock for them using flannel pajama pants.

    Picking up some Apple branches at work tomorrow for climbing. For the mouse, I use wood discs we use at work, drill a hole in the middle and use them for the base.
