Animal Trapping Tips

Humane Live Animal Traps

For successful trapping of nuisance animals, wildlife, stray pets you should not only use the correct live trap but also bait and place the trap correctly.  Learn the habits of your targeted animal: what foods it eats and the trails it uses to locate its food.  Safeguard recommends that you immerse your trap in boiling water or place it outdoors in the sunshine for several days to help remove any unwanted scents.  These unwanted scents can easily repel your targeted animal pest from your live trap.  When carrying, setting or baiting your trap, wear gloves to hide your scent from animals.  Human scent will scare many animals from your trap.  You also do not want to handle animal bait with your bare hands.

This bait guide is provided as a basic, assuming that you are not quite sure what the animal you need to trap is eating.
