Timms Trap Baits

Kia Ora

Have been using Apples with abit of cinnamon on in the Timms traps for possums and have plenty of success. The apples do obviously go soft pretty quickly and I can imagine after a few days especially in the summer humidity they could just get ripped out easily. Generally on a weekly check even empty traps need a fresh bait.

Anyone have any ideas for firmer baits that may last bit longer?


Hi, I use green apples with peanut butter but I have tried carrot and also coreflute with holes drilled in it with peanut butter on it.

Does that Core flute work well?

I have heard of people using a square of polystyrene with Peanut butter as well.
