Try putting a tin can with a rock on the top over the top of the DP to heavy for squirrel and mice but coon have no problem getting to the bait.

Are you skewering the mini marshmallows on the trigger? Some sticky molassases smeared inside the trap may help you get the job done. Ive caught coon a week after the mice got to the marshmallow. As long as there is something sweet to reach for.

Mice most likely.
Place plastic cup over DP or place golf ball on top. Coon will remove covering and work trap.
