Because weasels are unable to store fat in large quantities, they must eat frequently to satisfy their hunger. Once weasels lock onto a reliable source, it can be extremely difficult to get rid of them. Trapping is one method that is often used for weasel control. Below, you will find different bait options you can use to lure them in.
The best baits for weasel traps include liver, fish and chicken entrails. As weasels or notorious meat eaters, just about any type of fresh meat will also suffice. Some professional trappers suggest creating a trail of oats or grain leading up to the trap’s entrance. This will attract mice and other small rodents to the trap. The scent of the rodents will lure curious, hungry weasels.
