(1) How to Make One Way funnel door

In order to make a one way funnel door for exclusion or traps you will need access to the size of the hole that is going to hook into the funnel. The concept of one way door is to force the Squirrel to go in one directions only and do not allow him to go back. This can be done by using a wire funnel or a spring-loaded door. The funnel method allows a Squirrel to push their way through a tube constructed of wire mesh. Buy half inch, or better yet, quarter inch hardware cloth. Roll it into a tube, maybe 8 inches long.

The end of the tube is angles inward and has pointed edges, usually the ends of the wire. Leave flanges on the attachment end, so you can bolt it to the building. Architecture can be tricky. Sometimes you can screw it in, sometimes you have to seal it in with sealant. When a squirrel or rat pushes their way through, the wire ends come back together behind them. Holes that have a spring-loaded door act in similar fashion to a pet door (only the nuisance animal can’t go back inside). The door is larger than the hole. Any animal exiting can push through to the outside only to have the door spring shut, completely sealing the opening off. Your springs will need to be strong enough to resist the efforts of a determined Squirrel. One way door traps are not to be used without caution. Sometimes there is no other way to get an animal out of the home, but keep in mind that a lot of these animals have infants while they live inside of the building. One way door trapping is best done when babies are old enough to venture out with the mother.
