The Tomahawk AP is 6 oz. of Apple paste bait. This is an excellent bait that has a very strong sweet apple odor that works great for all species. Especially attractive to muskrats Proper baiting techniques are very important for trapping target animals and our paste baits and bait sticks make it easy. Paste baits are very effective all year round because of their compelling aroma which attracts animals from long distances. We use thick paste baits which enables them to hold up during extreme weather conditions. 6 oz. of bait is good for 15 to 20 settings. For optimal baiting, dip a bait stick into the proper paste bait and hang the bait stick at the back of the trap so that it dangles behind the trip pan.
Bait sticks are not included with this paste. You are free to use any type of stick (a tongue depressor or a popsicle stick) with this paste. Bait Sticks are available to purchase separately if needed.
I need some muskrat control. Preferably zinnc phosphide or another recommendation.
Unfortunately, the products that contain zinc phosphide have been discontinued by their manufacturer. Currently, we do not have any poison or bait labeled for muskrats. However, we do have an extremely appealing lure, Apple Paste that can be used to attract the muskrats so that you can catch them using either a live cage trap or a rat snap trap.
