I was looking at the castor scent. Sounds great; I need some. What is it though? Is it plant based scent, a mix, or what? Ordering soon….
Beavers have a pair of anal scent glands, called castors, which secrete a musk-like substance called castoreum. This is used for marking the beavers territory. The presence of a foreign beaver’s castor will draw the beaver into the area where that castor has been placed. This could be something that has occurred naturally from a beaver passing through, or by the placement of a beaver castor scent that has been made from the dried castoreum and a few other secret ingredients for the purpose of drawing the target animal into a variety of trap sets. For beaver trapping, the use of CASTOR LURE is almost always required. However, in recent years, the use of POPLAR OIL when live trapping with SUITCASE TRAPS or EASY SET BEAVER TRAPS has proven very effective too.
Beaver trapping, the use of beaver lure and the various “tricks” of the trade are all detailed in our online article about BEAVER CONTROL. If you have further questions, please give us a call on our toll free at 1-800-877-7290.
