All items are now made to order after the payment hs been made. (Unless by prior agreement made with excisting customers).
Various pictures and description of our new design squirrel traps, all of the pictures show the trap boxes as unpainted so that the detail can be seen easier.
We paint the boxes with two coats of dark brown paint whilst putting the item together.
There are two screw holes in the back board to screw the item to a fence etc. and two slots for a strap (not included) to strap the box to a tree if required.
The shelf is removable to facilitate the removal of any quarry that may have been caught a few days earlier and has become stiff.
The trap boxes show a bodygrip 116, a bodygrip 110 can fit onto the same sliding bars, the pictures also show a fenn trap mk6 but will also take a fenn trap mk4.
The trap box can be used in the upright position or laying on its back, and can be used with or without the removable shelf.
We sell to the public and trade alike, there are no poisons involved and are eco-friendly using non toxic methods of controlling the pest problem.
The quarry and trap can be removed from the box with ease, due to no obstacles in the way of trapping or removal. The squirrel enters the box through the side entrance hole, then works its way down the box towards the trap via the back edge of the centre shelf, which is in a slot. To remove the captured animal, it is simple, if you have tied a cable tie to the trap you will see from outside if the trap has been activated, if so open the door, slide out the centre shelf and remove the trap and quarry, open the trap and re-set it, ensure the cable tie is through a side slot for ease of visual inspection, close the door and leave well alone.
My personal box has been out in all weathers with only one re-coat of paint. and although it is of an earlier design it still works well.
If you have any doubts about your ability to catch and dispose of the catch humanely, then contact a qualified pest controller in your area in the first instance.
All tunnels etc are sold without traps, which are for sale in our trap section should you wish to purchase from us.
