Applying liquid repellent to whatever the muskrat is eating or granular repellent near the area where it is wreaking havoc can prove effective in some cases.
If a muskrat has taken up residence in your yard, cages are still your best bet for getting rid of the rodent. You can rent some at our head office
If you choose to rent a cage, we recommend using peanut butter, lettuce, carrots, and cattails as bait, in addition to an apple wedge to prevent the animal from becoming dehydrated. Following capture, the animal should be moved at least 15 to 20 km away before being released so as to avoid its return.
