Strawberry sugar wafer cookies , I get whatever brand they have at the dollar store. Added benefit , just the right size to slip them through the top of the cage mesh without having to open the door of the trap.

Dollar store dumpster dive for those sweets cause most are stale dated and pitched,

all the money you save you can have enough to travel up to Boco place and continue talking about the War of 1812 topic

second choice is potato chips or cheezes, but still dumpster diving for them

Mini m. mellows leading in .
But depends on what else is around. Cat food in pvc tube traps has netted me the most.
With no off target catches other than 2 possums in 12 years

Summertime I like, Banana pudding cups, followed by greasy potato chips, then on to the sweets.

I use alot of marshmallows in feral cat areas, unless they are part of the job.
Then I like pretty rotten bait with bacon grease mixed in.


Let me sugar coat this

Small marshmallows, cheap cereal (sweeter the better), catfood (wet or dry) any one of those with a shot of fish oil for a trailing scent.

I like having bait I can snack on if I get peckish.

Bob Jameson’s Peaches ‘n Cream smeared on a marshmallow hung from a wire in the back of a cage. Generic Cheetos to trail them in.
