I use maize and peanuts . Peanut butter on the trigger plate and I've started putting a bit if hazelnut oil and walnut oil in the back of the traps aswell . I put a black bag around the trap to cover it and cover with loads of foliage . I move all the dead leaves and crap from the from and that goes on top so the front of the trap is clear . Then I put a pile of maize there so they can see it from up the trees . Then hopefully when they come down to get the nutty smell from the traps attracts them in . Never had 2 in same trap before tho
