About Pest Animal Removal Huntington Beach and Our Services:
Opossums are the only marsupial Huntington Beach creatures that you will encounter in North America. While this may sound fascinating, a lot of people do not want them in their house. Their appearance will resemble a large rodent and not a lot of people will appreciate that. They also have a repulsive scent and will sometimes be nuisance once they enter the crawl spaces of our property. If you want to get rid of their presence, trapping would be the best method that you can use.
Choosing the Best Bait for Your Opossum Trap
The success of trapping the California opossum will largely depend on the proper placement of the trap as well as the bait that you are going to use. If your bait will not be enough to draw the attention of the creature, then you won't be able to convince them to enter the trap. Here are some of the best baits that you can use.
Wet Pet Food
The possums need an adequate supply of Huntington Beach proteins and our pet food would be the best source of protein for them. They also love the smell of the cat food. However, when using the pet food, make sure that it is away from the access of your pets especially your cat. They will also be enticed on the sweet scent of the pet food.
Apple is also a great bait to use in your opossum trap. It has a sweet odor that the opossum love. If you want to improve the success of trapping them, you may want to add a dash of cinnamon that will greatly boost the interest of the opossum. There are different fruits that you can use as bait for opossum. However, the most excellent choice would be apple or oranges.
Liquid or Paste Lure
The type of California bait that you should use will depend upon the kind of trap that you are using. In case you are utilizing a modified trap, paste or liquid lure would be an excellent choice. Simply smear the paste into the trigger of the trap and that would be enough to ensure that the opossum will bite on the trigger. Some people try to use the blood of animal such as rabbit. This may be the best choice during the winter season. The scent of the blood will remain for at least one week. However, for the warm areas, the scent will persist for only 3 days. There are some synthetic lures that are available in the market. Read the instructions carefully when using the commercially-available lures.
In case none of the Huntington Beach baits aforementioned are available, Nutella or peanut butter would also prove to be effective bait for opossum. Simply coat the bread with peanut butter and that would be enough to draw the attention of the creature. Opossums will also be interested on food that has the scent of the fruits and sustenance that have powerful stench. Make sure that you will use bait that has a tendency to stand out.
