I have trapped just about everything but not bushy tails. What other than peanuts can I catch them with in a live trap?

I used to trap squirrels all the time when I was a kid, the best bait Ive found was a slice of bread smeared with peanut butter......geo

Wire a piece of sponge to the trigger and smear with peanut butter.

Smear a dab at the entrance too... to get them in the mood. ;)

This is a 2 hr show but very good on trapping squirrels. I know this guy and he knows more about squirrels than anyone in the country. His business revolves around them. Theres also another 25 minut show he did on the same topic

The last squirrel I caught was with sardines. I was trying to catch a coon but a squirrel made its way into the trap.

I always take a piece of papertowel and put a glob of peanut butter on it. Then sprinkle it with bird seed or corn. Works every time. You can also a piece of apple.

I have Mtn. Curs, and trap a lot to train with. Peanut butter with some sunflower seeds or peanuts in a live trap will get you all you want.

I borrowed a live trap and caught one squirrel. I used peanut butter and tried bread pieces. I caught more birds(5) than tree rats. I gave up and gave the trap back. Are they good shark bait?
