This bait is a must for every nuisance trapper that traps in the summer! It is very important to realize that your bait is not protected like it would be in a dirt hole in the fall. The sun and rain are constantly beating down on your bait due to the fact that it is exposed in an open cage. These baits are based in tallow fat oil and cannot be washed away or dried up under any condition. The use of this bait, if only a small stick dipped into the jar and placed at the back of the trap, will always keep your trap in a ready condition. The use of either these baits or trailing scent should be part of your daily baiting procedure at every trap setting in the damage control field.
