Seven Chipmunks and three Mice...and counting
Seven chipmunks and counting
Three mice. More than I expected. All were nocturnal.

A quarter pecan continues to be the bait-of-choice. Its shape lends itself to wedging beneath the bait tang, especially if you bend the tang up slightly. It is physically tough enough that the pest must 'work' at removing it, thereby increasing the odds of the trap firing. I am getting about 70% clean catches.
And it is a suitable "last meal" before the pest slips its mortal coil.
