Cicero wildlife control Tip of the Month:

When next you’re setting a trap – whether cage or lethal – in your home, make sure you use an attractive bait, as it draws the attention of the wild animal to the trap. With an attractive bait, you’re more likely to capture the specific animal you want. There are different kinds of baits available for use – they comprise of both normal human foods found in kitchen cupboards and commercially produced bait. It is important to note that different wild animals will respond to bait in their own unique ways. Therefore, it’s necessary that you set up your trap and bait to match the wild animal that you are trying to capture.

Why Use Baits?
The main reason why people add baits to traps is that it increases their chances of capturing the particular animal they want. Also, most of these traps are not exactly subtle, so the bait diverts the animal's attention such that it overlooks the manmade trap and focuses on the free food it is about to get. Adding baits to traps makes capturing wild animals easier, especially animals that are wary of traps or have learned to evade them. When it comes to trapping, the bait is an important factor that determines if a trap succeeds in catching an animal or not.

Different Kinds of Bait
Baits used in animal traps mostly consist of food, including fruits, vegetables, and meat. Most homeowners use either of the aforementioned foods as bait when setting traps, but some combine different kinds of food to try and attract a specific kind of animal to the trap. Baits are divided into three categories:

Traditional bait
Commercially-produced bait

Poison bait
Traditional bait consists of human food – any edible thing found in the kitchen cupboard can serve as traditional bait. Commercially-made baits, on the other hand, are alternatives to traditional baits. They help homeowners capture certain species of animals and can be used when traditional baits seem ineffective. Poison baits are used to lure wild animals into traps. However, it’s not advisable to use them. The wild animal that consumed the poison bait may die in a hidden location and you will have a hard time searching for its carcass. Dead animals can cause air pollution in the home. Furthermore, poison bait is very toxic and can adversely affect the health of children, pets, and any other creature that comes in contact with it.

What Kind of Food Should Be Used as Bait?
Wild animals can be lured into an open trap with almost any kind of food, but certain foods do the job much more effectively. Meat is a good example of such food. Most homeowners use meat as bait because these wild creatures love it. Animals like rats, raccoons, bobcats, and coyotes are meat-eaters and will do anything to get a chunk of it – even venturing into an open trap. You can use chicken, rabbit, or even canned cat food to lure the wild animal. Some people prefer to use stale or rotten meat as bait because its smell is stronger and will possibly lure the wild animals to the trap. You can catch the attention of groundhogs, woodchucks, and opossum with vegetables – they love it. Peanut butter is also a good type of bait. It can be used to attract animals that eat both fruits and vegetables. It is important to consider the trap’s location while choosing your bait. If the trap is located inside your home, then you should avoid any food material that has a pungent smell, like rotten meat or fish.
