Full size. 

Apple, never tried it before. Caught 2 but had 2 traps with bait taken not sprung and 1 set off with no catch. Going back to my bakers fog biscuits 

@DIDO.1Ive seen numerous videos on baiting the black cat,when you bait yours do you push the spike into the bait or just rest the bait underneath without piercing it?

What would you say is the perfect size height wise bait to place under trigger, with or without piercing it?

I use bakers dog biscuits. They are soft but firm biscuit. I push it fully on to the trigger

I’ve not bothered using a cable tie on my black cat  as an indication,as I still need to lift my cover , as the trap doesn’t always trigger , but the bait is gone .haven’t bothered putting one on my two like this , mine are under covers , I just lift and check if still baited and any freebies even taken , doesn’t seem to put them off …. But me and the dogs are in the area constantly so , if that doesn’t discourage them I can’t see me lifting a cover does ,7 kills . Slowed right down now and runs are becoming over grown so maybe got on top of them , still haven’t caught or seen a full grown adult

Ive only got ties on my boxes like this, same as you with the black cat but I have got a telescopic inspection mirror,cheap of EBay does make it a bit easier sometimes as long as the light is right to inspect without lifting box/cover off trap.

I was using them , but found them a pain in the ass to rethread because I was still checking bait so it was daily , it was nice when it had disappeared though ,  as you are more expectant of a catch , where as when I take a cover off with no indication,I still jump when there’s a dead one  in there 🤣
