Des Moines possum removal tip of the month: What is the best bait to trap a opossum? - Opossums are scavengers, and they are some of the best. This means they aren't picky about what organic material they eat, and they will opt for a meal made of everything from carrots to carrion. That being said, when it comes to baiting traps for opossums, the best bait tends to be one that is meat based. Many people use tuna or sardines; something aromatic to lure the opossum in. Just remember, when setting your trap, that other animals will be drawn to the bait, too. You need to be prepared to check the trap regularly. The last thing you want is to detain the neighbor's cat and have to deal with a sassy feline waiting to be let out of your metal cage. Trap location is also very important. Even if you have the correct bait, if you aren't setting up your trap in locations where the animal travels regularly, you won't see much success.
