Try tying the bait to the trap with picture wire. That way the squirrel has to futz around with it, increasing the chances of tripping the release.

Hey there daynabreaton. What kind of traps are you using? Let us know and we can probably have a better idea of figuring this out.

How did this work out? May need to put solid walls where the bait is to keep the varmint from reaching through the trap from the outside.
