What did work is a live trap baited with peanut butter, then I drove said squirrels 15 miles away to my dads place and released them in the woods behind his house.
I don't want to alarm you, but squirrels have been known to chew on electrical wires and start fires. The live trap will work, one squirrel at a time, and take them far far away. I found walking around in the attic with the lights off on a sunny day is a good way to find the spot where they are entering the attic, and seal up their entrance.
