    Weasle and stoat trap

    As above, what the best trap and bait combo to catch them. Something is digging tunnels under the wife's aviary. Could be a rat but it's not touching any of the bait in the bait stations that usually work.

    Using a few quail eggs in a DoC 150 trap. Plenty of snap in the trap to take Rats, Stoats, Polecats, hedgehogs.
    Put a chicken egg in the other trap, and it is only about 1/10th as visited.
    Farmlands has them already assembled in boxes.

    Doc 150, is that the one in the wooden staple/nail box?

    @MSL - try this - it is a much cheaper option than the DOC 150 set-up

    Modifying the Victor rat trap to effectively kill stoats & ship rats - Predator Free NZ

    You can also use a tracking tunnel with a hole cut in the side and a T-rex trap stuck in through the side

    https://www.amazon.com/Trapper-Rex-T.../dp/B002Y5MVO2 - there is a NZ bloke who sells them but I cant for the life of me remember who.

    @MSL check out the thread 'bird predator control' in the varmiting and small game section.
    There are loads of pictures of trap set ups doing the job on both stoat and weasels.
    PCR (pest control research) do a copy of the DOC 200 its pretty cheap @ $22 - Build your own box!
    I got a weasel the other day in a $6 victor rat trap in a home built box, so don't need to spend a fortune.
    So far, fresh eggs and fresh rabbit meat have been the best baits for me on stoats and weasels
    GOOD LUCK !!

    < doc 200
    Modified victor or one of the doc 150 200. Shoot a rabbit and press it's guts till piss comes out and bottle it and spray the trap with it
