What is Good Squirrel Bait?
The best squirrel bait is peanut butter. The peanut butter is a natural repellent, and the squirrels won’t resist it. Sunflower seeds work great, but if you can’t find this, you can try other types of bait. For example, sunflower seeds are excellent for attracting squirrels, because they contain water. Using these products is an excellent way to control a problem. Regardless of the type of trap you choose, it’s essential that the bait is tasty.
Best Squirrel Baits
While you may think that the best squirrel bait is a piece of nuts, this might not be the best option. Squirrels have well-stocked larders, so you will probably want to use something a little more potent. This way, you will be more likely to get the results you are looking for. Choose a product with an anticoagulant. It will kill the squirrel and its fleas without any side effects, and it will be nontoxic.
Then, add a few peanut butter or almonds to your trap. While they won’t eat peanut butter, they will love the taste of unshelled nuts. You can also put an almond extract on some bread. And don’t forget about the marshmallows – they’re delicious and squirrels love them! And you won’t have to spend a lot to get the results you want. You will be able to capture many squirrels with this simple strategy.
