But I can honestly say there are not many cage traps and snares I set that does not make a catch within 3 days. But I do have 2 jobs right now where the female squirrels are avoiding the traps. So I will take readings on these traps and see. I also realize the animals mentioned may not be affected by magnetic fields. I have read enough on the post to at least make me intrigued to the theory. I have learned that to be able to prove something does not work, I first have to do everything I can to prove it does work. This mindset has many times shown me that things folks say do not work, do in fact work when the effort is applied.
How old the animal makes a big difference. He may not have had the opportunity or experience is to determine what has been hurting his friends. A lot of animals have the ability but I like a beagle dog just kind of go crazy sometimes And donít respond to you

some trappers swear by gang setting an area. I believe they have found they have the best luck that way because of the other animals havenít had a chance to determine how bad of a situation they were in. There again if youíre using methods that hide the magnetic field from an animal that can see it Will make a difference when you come back again To catch the ones that were spooked.

Kirk, How come my Tesla Magnetometer I downloaded is giving me an average reading outside in the yard of 239 to 245. Not the 45-46 you speak of? Do I need to change a setting?

If you downloaded correctly and is functioning correctly you may be below a powerline or Near a power substation . Maybe close to a cell tower.

I would think youíre reading should be around 50 micro tesla.

You could even be over a magnetic fault line of the earth.

The magnetic induction starts at 25 at the equator and is about 65 at the north pole.The sun and the moon have a greater effect on the change the more you are closer to the equator.

Press 10 X on the right side about midway in the screen. Just below the number reading Turn up the volume it will sound like a gieger counter.

From you that means a lot thank you. The book just makes it easier to understand and has a reference to go back to. These threads also make it helpful to increase your catch in the future.

Gygercounter is what this IPhone 6 sounds like over a MB 550 trap with Formula 1 trap coat. Held 1 inch over center of pan Out in middle of yard got Blue light to come on. On the Tesla Bot app at 27 Had some highs and lows but 27 was about my average Will bury in sand. Well bedded and see what reading I get tomorrow morning

Youíre trying to find the high points on the trap. It doesnít sound like youíre getting the readings correctly.

Towards the side of pan was much higher. In the 60s and up around the coil springs. Moving it around at 1 inch It would run 32 around levers and 55 to 65 to space to bottom left of pan. Coil springs area. I wonder what readings it will give buried. I had to try to dead center it and hold steady over dead center to get 27 to 30 range
