Scratching my head on this one, Becky. No digging sign......just all the leaves eaten off and the stems pushed down. Do have a lot of grey squirrels around.

Had TWO sprung traps and 1 trap missing the bait (but not tripped) this morning.
Hi David...as your middle in the trap got a ledge if so put several pieces of food on it besides past the ledge that releases the trap and also trail food along the cage till it gets the ledge what releases the trap as the knowledge of being greedy takes over.

@David from Dothan can't that trap be but on the ground?...a few years back I caught squirrels sitting on our decking destroying my bottle brush shoots for the nectar and I brought a cage and place the nut on the trap like you've done the food in the pic and they was cheeky snatching it and getting out, so I put nuts outside the trap trailed 3 along put two on top of the ledge and two after and bingo...each day one was caught and then released, although your supposed to kill them here in the UK but instead my hubby released them over the canal.
