Will rat traps kill squirrels eating my deck, soffits, and having confetti parties with the wall insulation

Any tips would be greatly appreciated

Though the rat traps might snap the squirrels, they will leave you with the problem of getting rid of the dead bodies. Alternatively, you can get rid of the squirrels in your home by cutting away any low tree branches in your garden so as to stop them for nesting. You can also call the animal control in your area so that they can get rid of the animals without hurting them. See http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Squirrels for more tips.

Thank you, yes we have seen them. The squirrel traps we have seen in our area all leave the squirrels alive and you are required to either release them back onto your property?????? or kill them yourself. A neighbor told me they can also injure themselves pretty badly trying to escape.

You can, like Clemence said, after you catch them, call animal control, they'll come get them. And your neighbor might be right in the fact they said the squirell might injure itself. :(

Maybe...? rat-traps are designed for rats, but if they're causing trouble give it a try for a few days.

A .22 will do the trick or a pellet gun
