I noticed that the link disappeared from the facebook page. Too bad 
because I wanted to see it too.

This year even with four traps going I lost a third of my fruit -- the squirrels are out in ridiculous numbers this year and I was not trapping aggressively enough in early summer.   I have a big problem with birds eating the mast outside the trap, without which the squirrels are much less likely to find the trap.  So they need to be re-baited frequently.

I have had birds set off the trap (but not get caught), I caught a flying squirrel once in it, and one time a raccoon got his hand stuck in it and was making a huge racket in the middle of the night trying to get out of it.
