Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)We ordered this to go with the rat zapper. It is a little over-priced for what it is but it is really needed if using the rat zapper outdoors. It has rained many times with it outside and has protected the zapper with no problems. One time it rained unexpectedly so having this paid dividends almost immediately, otherwise the rain would have ruined the zapper. This is highly recommended.

I am not clear how this works. If it protects the Zapper against rain for example, how do squirrels get into it?

Why would you be using it for squirrels? I thought this was for rats?

I haven't found anything specifically for squirrels, but usually what works for rats works for squirrels too, who are basically rats with big bushy tails. Also, I think I saw on the manufacturer's home page somewhere that some people had used the rat zapper for squirrels.

Rats caused $4,000 worth of damage to my vehicle -- chewed wiring causing shorts, etc. I don't want to kill the squirrels, I hand-feed them. I just need to get rid of the rats but don't know how to use the trap to kill the rats only.

if you feed squirrels around your home or car, you are inviting the same damage to property as that caused by the rats.
The reason they chew a lot is their teeth continually grow, they don't stop growing like our teeth. If they didn't chew on things that are hard, their teeth would grow in a half circle and eventually be so long they couldn't eat and they would starve to death. Wood, wiring and metal are good hard substances and your home/car are full of it. They are, as I said, rats with large furry tails. They may seem cute, but squirrels carry fleas, as do rats,and thus disease; they chew up anything they can get their teeth into, and given the slightest opportunity, they will invade your attic, and even your home.
