I was skeptical at first so I purchased 2 traps to try to eliminate nuisance raccoons. This was my first time using the push/ pull style. I’m back purchasing 6 more. My first attempt I had success. The next time was my mistake. Do not fill bait above trigger. After 1 miss I never missed again and ended up catching 7 raccoons in 2 weeks. Easy to set rebait as needed.
