Can you use weasels as a lure for say stoats or ferrets?
If they’re fresh this will often work to attract the rest of the family back to the trap
We have used this successfully in our trapping for Pest Free Upper Hutt. Whether weasel or stoat or rat, you can always put them back as lure in a doc 200 where you would normally put the egg (or both). Mustelids seem to last 10 days to 2 weeks compared with rats which very quickly become difficult to clear out! But we have often scored a second catch within days using this method.
You can squeeze and rub the gonad area of the freshly caught Weasel or Stoat around the trap entrance .
I also leave the dead animal on top of the trap.
This has achieved repeat catches .
Probably not a good idea in very Public areas .
Damn, I just caught (and burnt) my first Weasel, I wish I had logged in here first
