Should I put other lure in my Smart Cage?
While tempting the answer is no! The target species are all very proficient scent hunter/scavengers, they will sniff out the lure. They follow scents to the source, meaning they walk over the treadle while searching for it. Putting other lures in and around the cage means they can reach the source before standing on the treadle. If they don’t like the food source they will leave without fully entering. In human terms, if a bakery made its money from people coming to look at the food, they would do a lot better. Smart cages do a lot better because they can take advantage of the fact most animals will inspect a scent source.
How do I refill the lure?
If your smart cage has a ZIP Motolure it will need filling every 9 months. You will need a 60ml catheter tip syringe, a chopstick, and 2 minutes to watch this video:
