I am also certain that you are on this page wanting to find out how to catch a squirrel and if there could be an easy to build snare that could help you with the same.

Here, you are going to find out about one easy-to-create squirrel snares. This particular snare can be set up in a matter of few minutes and is designed in such a way that it not only captures the animal but also prevents it from trying to escape and harm itself. Without any of the mess of a commercial spring-action trap, you can now capture these animals safely and free them in a forest that is away from your home.

To construct squirrel traps that work like a snare, you would have to locate certain things that you can find in your own home. For this particular trap, you do not need to pay a visit to a store because you can use those items that you can find in your house.

You would just have to pay a visit to your garage and locate a ball of bailing string. Make certain that the string does not break easily and it should not be too thick or too thin. Next locate a branch or pole that is hollow. You could use a piece of bamboo with two open ends to construct the snare.

First, you would have to locate a loop and attach it to the bailing wire so that you can easily attach it to the pole. Then take the bailing wire and create a noose on one side and ensure that the noose is about 7 centimeters in diameter. The free end of the noose should go through the loop that you had taken.

Next, you would have to look for a fork branch on a tree. Make certain that the fork can hold the pole and also the weight of the squirrel. Now make certain that you run the bailing string along the pole where the noose end would be on one side of the pole and the free end would have to be wrapped securely on the other end of the pole. You would have to make certain that the free end is secured in such a fashion that the entrapped squirrel can not wriggle its way out of the pole with the string.

When placing the noose, just ensure that it is positioned in such a way that it covers the sides and the top of the pole. Make sure that there is another noose created so that one can be placed on the top and the other on the side of the pole. The actual noose should be kept about two to three inches away from the pole. When the nooses are placed in such a fashion, you can be rest assured that the squirrel would not find enough room to wiggle and chew the bailing string to its freedom.

Next you would have to place the entire setup against the fork-branch of the tree or have it tightly secured to the trunk of the tree. Now place some nuts or other kinds of sweet smelling food items in the pole to attract and snare the squirrels.

Follow these methods to the T and even you can create a lot squirrel snare that can be the best answer to all your problems.
