Sorry to hear of your terrible losses!
When I use a live trap, the best bait I have found is marshmellows. I put
one or two in a line towards the trap opening and then toss another two into
the back of the trap. I have trapped coons, skunks, ground hogs, and
possums with marshmellows.
Several years ago, when the coons were bad in our vineyard, someone told me
to put a radio out there at night. Said that coons don't like people and
noise. I took a boom box out and tuned in some all night talk show and
turned it off during the day. Did this until I could get all the grapes
picked. I think it helped but it was hard to really tell if it did any
