I use vanilla wafers. But they will eat nearly anything.

Corn, milo, sweet feed, wet or dry cat food, sardines, protein pellets, marshmallows, wet or dry dog food, fish pellets, cotton ball with sardine oil on it, ...etc....are all things I have used....if it is edible and smells good to them they will eat it.

Someone told me you never see raccoons around where monkeys are fed.

Was told by GW and it works great in live traps, Jumbo marshmallows. Said they look like turkey eggs. I don't
know about that, but they did work great. I put two outside of trap and one inside.

They were raiding my corn feeder so I just put corn in the trap. When they hit my protein feeder i put protein in the trap.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

I use dry cat food in FB dog proofs and then spray inside with a few squirts of 80/20 fish oil and crayfish oil.

I have had incredible success with Duke's Dog Proof Coon Traps. I buy them on eBay for less than $15 each. They are highly effective with corn in the bottom and then I top it off with little marshmallows or canned cat food.

They'll eat anything but EZ for you is dry cat food or small marshmallows. Put in small zip lock bag and in your jacket pocket.
Remember to use Duke's dog proof traps and snap some paws. up

I hate stinky stuff like cat food and sardines so I started baiting like with honey buns and pop tarts.

Sprinkle a little corn over them too.

Corn.....it’s already in your feeder and caused the problem from the get go. Don’t overthink it.
