Trapping Squirrels
The Most common squirrel that is inhabiting the United States is the gray squirrel. These squirrels come in a variety of colors from pure black to pure white and all shades in between.

The ideal habitat is a forest filled with oaks, beeches and hickories which provide food and natural cover. A natural diet consists of nuts, fruits, berries, mushrooms and insects. Many suburban backyards offer a similar habitat with an added bonus of bird seed.

The Squirrel is often heard engaging in bark, chatter, scream, purr and mew. These sounds along with the flashing movement of the squirrels tail and stamping of their feet are all ways for scquirrel communication.
