Quick and easy, what is a good possum bait for a hav a heart trap? Thanks
i've read peanut butter and marshmallows... sounds good to me!
Possums love cat food, I have also heard that tuna fish works well.
All the above works well, but if you get in a situation where you need to rebait the trap often, a couple whole eggs will catch almost anything, especially possums, coons, and several other predators. The eggs last about a month and aren`t messy to deal with. Most eveyone with chickens has eggs. Good luck.......Pop
All of the above are good but sardines work great !!!
EGGS! and my cats will not go into the trap after them. lol Possums love eggs.
jack mackerel , sardines , fermented fruit, eggs ,grapes , perlsiomins
A really juicy hot dog left in the hot sun with it soaking in juice for about 3 hours. DO this and I guarntee you will catch that possum. Guarntee it. You might not like it but oh man. I did this and I caught, 3 baby possum, 1 momma possum and a huge raccoon. I have not reset the trap but nothing bothering anything so i will not worry about it. Good Luck with it! Dusty (FF)
I use dog food. Never failed, doesn't cost any extra. Even cought my own dog once & the neighborhood cat! Thank goodness for LIVEtraps!
Everyone told me raw chicken - so when the time came to catch our offending opossum I left a piece of raw chicken our at room temp, got it nice and stinky and it worked like a charm! Opossum caught! I tried it again the next night and caught the neighbors dog. And, no, he did not get dispatched like the opossum did.
