Hereof, how do you catch a rabbit in a live trap?
Pour some apple cider into a spray bottle, and spray it thoroughly on the inside of your trap. The apple scent will serve two purposes: luring rabbits into the cage and covering up any human scent that may deter rabbits from entering. Create a trail of bait from outside of the trap to help guide rabbits in.
Secondly, how does a rabbit trap work? The rabbit enters the trap through the open door because it is attracted to the bait. Then it starts eating the bait once it's inside the trap and the door closes, trapping the rabbit inside.
Hereof, how do you trap rabbits in your yard?
Position the bait 2 to 3 inches from the rear of the cage. Make sure to place the bait behind the trigger plate, not on it. Suitable baits for attracting rabbits include apples, nuts, cereals and fresh vegetables. However, if the rabbits eat a specific item from your yard or garden, use that food as bait.
