You won't know until you try and it's not going to make it worse in any event. Be sure to add the small piece of nylon as well. It helps get them wound up/more easily trapped. I think it's going to come down to the right kind of bait and how readily available food sources are. I would honestly suggest trying a small piece of beef heart.

hmmmm o.k.!!!

I'll try that I guess, like you said what can it hurt! How will the beef heart affect water parameters?


Thanks!

Your only going to leave it a day or two at most so I wouldn't worry too much.

do you have a rough diagram of this trap you mention steve?

are you refering to just the simple 'coke bottle' trap with some nylon hose in it?

Pretty much... just cut off the top and invert it inwards so you get a funnel effect. It's harder for what's being caught to find their way out. The use of the nylon entangles most pests and makes it that much more difficult to get free.
