    No pics, though, 'cause like an idiot I left my camera at work yesterday ..

    I was suprised we got one, because it's the same can of cat food that's been out there for a couple days .. I was just too lazy to change it out, so I just set the trap.

    Funny, we caught one last monday night .. and this monday nite. I think they must take a 7 day trek around the neighborhood or something ..

    I'm thinking about buying another trap and keeping two set at all times..

    Daggum varmits!

    Quote:This is half of protecting your birds the other half is making your coops and runs secure, both work better then just doing half a job. I trap populations not just a single animal if you catch most of the group in 1-2 nights it is better then catching 1 or 2 a night and it taking 2-3 weeks to do it they tend to get trap shy the longer it takes you to get rid of them. Sometimes I quit trapping for a week and change baits when I start back and the location of the trap a little and maybe the cover / camouflage on the trap as well.
