I use my mouth to imitate the female, it is the short bark with the higher pitch whine, most will not be able to do that with their mouth. but what you can try is to do the bark. short not the long alert bark, or try the growl with your mouth, think back and try to do that little growl that the young do. mom is the same just alittle different. if they are young they will have very little fear factor to them, and any squirrel sound may pull them or at least get them to move so you can maybe see or hear them. you can also try one of those squirrel calls just do the short barks. also I kiss the palm of my hand to inmate the sound the young make when scared to get mom to pop her head out of a hole or run to me, or run to show me the hole if I can't find it. I have seen when I do this from the roof or in a attic trying to get mom's attention, that the young will sometimes come and look, may want to give it a try. hey you can always take mom and put her in a trap and place it in the attic for a day or 2. she won't mind or feel a thing and the young if close and if they are mobile, may smell her, and may come to her sometimes.
