So we enclosed our traps in plastic garbage bags. We caught 1 elusive squirrel right away and a possum. I leave the cages open at night as we have young kids and can't always get out early in the AM.

I live in Northern NJ and it was warm last week. I noticed that the bait in the covered cages got moldy really quickly.

I built a wooden cage cover this weekend that I will try sometime during the week.

So ... does the cage need to be completely dark for the cage covers to work? Can some light be coming in?

For the plastic garbage bags I was thinking of maybe making some small holes in hopes the bait would not get moldy.

when using the cover I have been only leaving 1 side open. Any thoughts on that?
