We are looking for a trap to catch Muskrats & also later in the season catch Opossum. Would the LT111236 TRAP work for both of these critters? Or is this trap too big for muskrat and we would be better off with the LT7824 LIVE TRAP?
The LT111236 could be used for both muskrat and opossum. A slightly smaller trap you could use would be the LT111230 or the LT111230RD. The LT7824 could work but I’m afraid it’s just too small for all the animals you may encounter. Since all three use the same size wire mesh, go with the larger dimensions. Animals will almost always find larger traps less threatening and as a result will tend to enter them faster without trap shyness.
