What is the best bait to trap a raccoon?

Fatty meats and the sweet foods are the right baits to use in the live traps and they should be used to lure the raccoons in the cage. Raccoon is opportunist eater and it can eat different foods but the ones that are favored are food of high sugars or fats. The sugary foods are known to be the right one to use while using the live raccoon trap since they do target the raccoons and they will not attract unwanted animals.

To bait the raccoons, you should use watermelon, marshmallows, vegetables coated with sugar or honey, sweet corn, cooked fatty meat, fish (canned, smoked and fresh) wet cat food and crisp bacon.

Choosing the best bait is just one step to catch the bait but you should also learn about where to place the bait. The right placement, force the raccoons to enter into the trap with the tail and the body, encourages raccoon to step on the trigger and the right position should be taken into consideration in terms of the type of trap.

To make sure that the raccoon does not knock down the trap, it should be secured through placing it at a brick or add the weight over the trap. The user may create the trail of the bait from outside and it should lead the raccoon in a trap. The user should always put on the gloves while baiting a trap because the raccoon will be wary of the scent of the humans. Wild animals are not the ones that can be kept as pets in homes. These are also not allowed to be entered in homes, attic, or any place where the human are to move about. This is just because of the threats and dangers which is caused by the wild animal’s presence. Most of the time, people may choose to use the trap but they may end up trapping other animals. People can catch animals that they did not target in the first place. The pets may also be caught and they may die because of dehydration and exhaustion if they are not taken out faster.

Even by using the best bait, the people may end up not catching anything if they do not have the right experience. The right trap has to be set at the ground and it should not have any defect. It needs to have the best pan tension and it should be set at the ground without having to wobble. It has to be set in the area that the raccoons like to explore or to travel.
