Watch that patch! She might well try and get back in, looking for her kits. Or, if she's experienced, she might also have another way in. If she's INexperienced, she might get a little frantic and CHEW her way back in somewhere else. Watch closely and keep trying to bag her.
If you have two traps (recommended) use one as a shill, keep it open, disabled and baited.
As far as the PB is concerned, it's all I ever use. They don't get a whole lot of peanut butter out in the wild (!) so it's usually a treat for them. Observe where they run, put tiny (TINY) dabs of PB where she'll run across them.
I always hesitate to give this tip, people go nuts and I'll see MUCHO dabs of PB all over the place! DON'T DO IT LIKE THAT! In her whole territory I might use 3-4 (NOT 34!) little dabs. Make note of where you're putting them, change locations every day. This forces her to look for more.
And thanks for the compliment!
