Squirrel Trap – Live catch – Galvanised :
Our traps are made from heavy gauge, Galvanised welded mesh and are extremely effective for the live capture of Grey Squirrels.
The trap itself is constructed with heavy gauge welded mesh, which is hot dipped galvanised to provide the highest levels of corrosion resistance. We only use stainless steel fixings in the construction of our traps, unlike similar cheaply made products on the market.
Our Squirrel traps are specifically designed to work with bait to entice the animal into the trap.
How the squirrel trap works
A Squirrel enters through the entrance of the trap to take bait, which is situated at the rear of the cage. In doing so triggers the floor plate, which in turn releases the door mechanism, instantly trapping the Squirrel. The animal is then trapped until it can be humanely dispatched by the pest controller.
Our Squirrel trap comes fully assembled and ready to use, ground anchors are included.
Katch-it recommends whole maize or peanuts for baiting Squirrels.
Please see our video in the tutorial section on how to site and use these traps effectively.
Please note that all traps must be checked at a very minimum of every 24 hours as a requirement of law. Failure to do so could result in prosecution. We at Katch-it advise all pest controllers to check their traps at a very minimum of twice daily for both animal welfare and trapping success.
*This trap should only be used for the live capture of Grey Squirrels.
*The law dictates that the trap must be secured to the ground, for this purpose, our traps come supplied with ground anchors to prevent any movement once sited.
*If you are trapping in Scotland you must have a tag affixed to each trap with your authorised user number clearly visible.
Katch-it accepts no responsibility for users who use this trap illegally and/or irresponsibly. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure they are using it legally and in conjunction with the terms of the general license.
