Columbus trappingColumbus Groundhog Tip of the Week: What is the best bait to trap a groundhog?
Baits can be used to trap many types of wild animals. And groundhogs aren't an exception. But, baits can only be used alongside a cage or body grip trap. Although bait is not as important as trap placement, it is necessary to trap the critters quickly. Even though nearly all wild animals easily got food, the type of bait and its placement can determine your trap's success. Therefore, when using bait to lure the creature into the trap, you need to place it correctly in your trap for higher chances of catching the critter. You can either place the bait at the center of the trap cage or behind the trigger plate. Try as much as possible to place the bait where the groundhog cannot reach it from the outside and inside without getting trapped.

Types of baits
There are two main types of baits that you can use to trap groundhogs. These are natural foods such as fruits and vegetables and processed baits available in stores. Processed ground baits come in different forms, including powder or spray forms. Some common artificial baits are Pro-Pest Groundhog Lure, Watkins Vanilla Extract, and High Noon Groundhog Lure. These artificial baits are effective as long as your garden or lawn does not have delicious fruits or vegetables. In this case, the groundhogs will not be tempted by the baits.

The best bait for trapping groundhogs
Now, having gone through a list of various baits that you can use to trap groundhogs, the next question would be, What's the best bait for trapping groundhogs? Well, we've got you covered. Even though you can use artificial or processed baits, the most popular and widely used types are the natural ones. Not only are they cheap and readily available, but they are also a groundhog's natural food. There are several types of foods that you can use when it comes to trapping a groundhog. Therefore, before you settle on a natural food bait, you need to know the type of fruit or vegetable your guest likes scavenging on. All you need to do is inspect your garden to see which of your fruits or vegetables have been damaged the most by groundhogs. This will give you an idea of the kind of bait to use.

Some of the most useful vegetables you can use as baits include lettuce, peas, and string beans. However, you can also use carrots and corn to lure the rodent into the trap. As for fruits, the best options are the scented types such as strawberries, bananas, cantaloupe, and peaches.
