We don't have nutes around here, but I have heard of guys using sweet potatoes or apples as bait. Also, cherry extract.

Most of the guys over on Tman that trap them say they do better tearing up the bank and setting that. Evidently, they think another one found something good and have to check it out themselves.

(Edit: What Ric is trying to tell you below, is that we discourage folks from passing along second hand information. It has always been that way on this site, and I'm not ready to change. We really don't need an emissary from Trapperman. Folks are welcome to visit there and read the information for themselves. www.trapperman.com) -- Hal

Trap Line Help! is a place for inexperienced trappers to get help with their problems. Post your questions below. (We encourage responses from experienced trappers. We discourage secondhand or faulty information.)

'nuff said

Durring the "Maryland Nutria Eradication Program" Tonkin was found to be one of the more attractive ingredients. You may want to look for a lure with a good amount of that in it

On the other hand. If you are good at avoiding Nutria. Consider giving lessons, know quite a few people that would like to learn how that is done.:-)

Thanks for the info, I will give the options a try, I will
see what happens.I have all 3 options on hand. They can cause a lot of damage and cause cave inns on high banks. I used to shoot these things by the hundreds when i was still living in LA.Our back parking lot at the car dealership has had a cave in . It cost $6000 to get fixed.

What part of Tennessee are you in? Maybe that recent cold weather will knock them back. -- Hal

I am in Memphis TN. I have not seen any since we got to 6 degrees. The cherry extract works on coons, got 3 today. Normally i would shoot them, but that is not an option due to location. Hopefully the cold did sum damage to them. We have more bitter cold on the way later this week.

Success, got 4 nutria today, all with the cherry extract. I found fresh sign and set where they were eating grass. Got in touch with an old trapping buddy, and he told me to plant rye grass anywhere you find sign. The sign looks like the grass has been over raked and leaves mostly loose dirt. Will try rye grass next week, we have an impending ice storm tonite, and into weekend. will update when grass comes up.

Glad the cherry extract worked, and congrats on the nutes. I figured if the cherry extract works down south, it would work for you too.

The rye grass is interesting. I used to plant a lot of rye, and it is very tender when it germinates. I guess I can see why it would be appealing cause the deer go nuts over it when it's coming up.

I am going to plant the rye grass, where I got the 4 I caught. Nothing to lose by trying. I will try to get a good picture of what the sign looks like,and show the damage they are causing. Thanks Dfabs for turning me on the cherry extract (coons like too).
