I have found I just need to be more diligent on trap placement and baiting, not to switch the bait. Mobile traps are very helpful. I had four traps in my apricots when they were after them, and now that the cots are mostly gone I am moving the traps to the early peaches, plums and asian pears. Also make sure the bait is not all getting stolen. I am going through a jar of peanut butter a week now.
There are a ridiculous number of squirrels this year, I took some damage recently due to wave after wave migrating in and a few getting through the cracks. Its strange on their favorite traps, in spring it was the squirrelinator catching the most and now the tube traps are getting the most and the Kania traps are #2. I have the tube traps rigged as “ramps” up into the trees they are going after, they are each mounted on 5’ 2x4s and one end is in the tree crotch at about 3’ high and the other end is on the ground. I bungee tightly so there is no movement. This puts the trap as the easiest path to the fruit, and this placement increases the odds one will stop by for a visiWHAM !
