My Opossums like to eat the cat food off the porch. Meow Mix seems to be a favorite. Even the Cardinals will eat it from the cat dish. No squirrels around so can’t say if they like it too. Ground Hogs leave it alone but love my watermelon discards on the edge of soybean field. They get their greens and fruit from me all summer long.
How is the Skunk approached and released(I assume)without being sprayed?
if you hold up a old blanket in front of you when approaching, to hide your leg movements, and slowly cover the cage with it, they wont spray. ive relocated about a doz. that way. i stay to the side of the trap and slowly open the door and stay still. Pepe waddles out and goes off on his merry way.
Add lemon juice and sugar - and make jam .
I did the same thing @steveb4 does. I use green tarp.
I have done this so many times, it is a routine now.
Meow Mix with Chicken or Tuna?
Original Choice which has all the flavors.
I don’t have cats so I only bought one can, the one with tuna.
Dry mix I should have mentioned. But they are omnivores so that should work.
I am afraid it will prefers my Euro plums, sweet and aromatic, over stinky cat food!!
Waiting for you to feed it
My excitement of seeing an animal in my trap dissipated once I got a better look. Second day in a row.
Used a green tarp to cover the trap. Gently rolled the trap to the side and lift open the trap doors, all under the green tarp.
herre kitty. kitty!
Nothing in the trap this morning. Neither skunk or opossum likes my Honey Crisp!!!
Here was what was left of Zephyr. Although brix was only 21, it was very sweet. Even my picky daughter loved it.
@BobVance If you want a large, sweet white nectarine, you may want to take a look at Zephyr.
However, Freckle Face is more flavorful and my favorite nectarine.
Third time is not a charm. I switched from apples to cat food again last night hoping to catch that opossum. Got the same skunk for the third time.
I walked toward the trap with my green tarp in front of me.
Covered the trap with the tarp.
Lifted the latches on both ends of the trap (under the tarp).
Gently rolled the trap over, up side down.
Stepped back quickly at a good distance.
The son of the gun sashayed out.
Never got sprayed doing it this way.
Winter squash? Look very artistic.
