My trap arrived, only ordered it yesterday morning so that's quite impressive.

I'll set it when I get home, could be squirrel-free before the day is over.

We had a squirrel problem a couple of years ago. Because of our profound inertia we lived without lighting in the kitchen for two months over winter, which made for some romantic meals.

A bloke came round eventually and put poison down. Two weeks later we had the most horrendous fly infestation which lasted a day. But at least we didn't have to dispatch them ourselves *shudder*.

I'd be useless after armageddon, I couldn't even bear the thought of killing vermin when the little feckers were interefering with our lighting.

Yes despite my name I'd be a veggie come Armageddon too

Quick update. I was using bits of twix in the trap but the squirrel was eating those without setting it off, Indiana Jones Temple of Doom stylee.

Switched to using peanut butter and that did the job. The squirrel that was in my loft is now in my wheelie bin. Was a bit grim getting the body out of the trap, but at least no bricks were needed.

Some did mention to me earlier this week that peanut butter wasn't very good for you.

He was obviously right!

I looked at the traffic light label on the jar of peanut butter (lots of red) and thought that if the trap didn't work I could perhaps feed it enough to give it a heart attack.
