Step-by-Step Trapping Guide
Step 1: Place bait in back of trap
Chipmunk: Un-roasted peanuts, sunflower seeds, peanut butter, cereal.
Rats: Cheese, bread, birdseed, peanut butter.
Squirrels: Nuts (especially peanuts), sunflower seeds, apples.
Weasels: Fish, fresh liver, chicken entrails.
Step 2: Set the trap
Set the live animal trap in the location of the nuisance animal. You can camouflage the trap by placing twigs and leaves on top. You can also leave an unset baited trap for a few days to entice the animal.
Step 3: Check the trap regularly
Animals can become stressed if caged for long periods of time. Hot and cold weather conditions can also harm the animal.

For easy and humane pest removal, the Havahart Small 1-Door Trap is ideal with its durable and simple to use design. Constructed with galvanized, rust-resistant steel mesh, the trap is capable of withstanding outdoor weather conditions as well as small pests, and the spring-loaded door holds the animal securely inside to prevent escapes. To use, simply place, bait, and wait for a catch! Each Havahart trap is designed to be safe for both the trapper and the animal. A large steel plate comes installed on the top of the trap to minimize possible contact between you and the animal. Inside of the trap, the smooth, rolled edges prevent injuries, such as cuts and scrapes, to the animal during transport. A sturdy handle also allows you to hold the trap away from yourself when transporting the animal to further minimize the chance of contact.

UPDATE: Four days in and four squirrels have volunteered for my Squirrel Relocation Program. I think I'm approaching the number bagged by my neighbor who has hired a professional service for a couple of weeks now...and is using two traps. I've had the bait stolen twice but am getting better at setting the trap for a hair trigger release. I drive the critters a few miles out into the country and love it when I open the door - they come flying out like they've been shot out of a cannon, chittering squirrel obscenities at me the whole way as they scream toward the nearest cover. No gloves necessary as they can't reach my hand on the handle or holding the trap open - and they're much too interested in placing as much distance as possible between themselves and the trap to try to launch a counter-attack. I hose out the trap and the plastic tub I use to transport it after each catch, clean off the bait pad that I installed, add new bait and it's ready for the next recruit. After years of foul, dark thoughts ascending toward the heavens when the little buggers laid waste to my gardens for no apparent reason, I'm really enjoying this!
At one point I actually saw a rabbit enter the trap, stand on the door lever, eat all the bait, and just leave, uncaught. After this I realized the trap was either a faulty manufacturer error, or I wasn't doing something right.
Today I still don't know what was wrong, but I'll tell you how I fixed it:
After all my unsuccessful attempts, I decided to really look at the trap. I messed around with the levers, and saw that it would take a significant amount of pressure to set it off. So before setting the trap, I made the trap more sensitive by manually loosening the the lever arm to where the slightest touch would set it off. Well that fixed the problem and like I said before I've caught many rabbits on this. Although it works now, I would have liked it to have worked straight away so I would've have had to work on it so much.
Since then I worked with a Catch, Spay, Release group to catch the ferals under my home. Their cages worked wonderfully. The trap door falls via gravity only and then lock tight once down, making it almost impossible to harm a small critter. Even better, it has two doors. One slides up and allows you to slip in a small bowl of water or food if you need to. The Havahart does not have this feature. And for $10 more, the safety, larger size and the extra door make the slight increase in cost worth it. Search for this: Humane Way 914048 Live Trap Animal, Medium 32"x12"x10"

I prepared a spot for the cage in the garden where the squirrels have been killing all my seedlings (watermelon and sunflower, little buggers aren't even eating them, just chewing the tops off and hence killing the sprouts)
Dropped a bunch of cashews on the ground and set the trap on top so that the bait sits roughly under the step plate.
Setup an IP cam and streamed the feed to my office.
I camouflaged the cage with pine bows, twigs leaves etc leaving the opening looking like a little cave
Nothing in the morning
Chippy our resident chipmunk had a feast about 6pm, he was in and out no problem, didn't set off the trap (I think even if he did he could probably fit through the bars. So thats good).
7:30pm SQUIRREL alert!!!
So here's where it gets interesting, the squirrel was VERY wary of the trap, he sat at the opening looking it up and down for a good 5-6 min, I could tell he wanted to go in, but he was definitely sketched out by the thing (oh I also hosed the cage down to remove what human scents I could). I think we may be unintentionally uplifting squirrels David Brin style. lol They seem to be smarter these days. Even the mice are setting off teh house traps, bait gone, no mouse. Weirding me out.
Anyway, finally he goes in, wait for it, wait for it....and he comes out with a cashew in his paws. Sits at the opening and eats the nut.
Goes back in, gets a second nut, comes back out. lol (BTW these nuts are behind and under the step plate, lol) So at this point I am thinking "dammit" waste of money yadda yadda.
So I grabbed a large butter knife full of peanut butter went out to the trap and scraped the PB all over the step plate.
Checked again at 8pm, trap door was shut and squirrel safely contained.
I also filed the trigger mechanism a bit, giving it a little more sensitivity, so that may have helped the initial situation with it not going off. Or the PB was too much to resist. Or both.
Removing the squirrel however was a challenge. The instructions say to place it down, open the door and prop it open with a stick, but I didn't even get the chance. I just put the cage down in the release field, stepped on it so I could get a good grip on the door, which is a little tricky with a live animal inside (wear gloves) and opened the door and he was out before I got it all the way open. that part was a little bit yikes! You may want to throw a blanket over it, might keep the animal calmer and not bashing around in the cage. He didn't appear to have injured himself although at release he was justifiably discombobulated.
So, it indeed does work with careful placement, setting and bait, PB and cashews obviously work. Cage is sturdy as well. Good value!
