MK4 Fenn Tunnel – Green PVC coated
Our traps are made from heavy gauge, PVC coated welded mesh and are extremely effective for the live capture of Grey Squirrels and Rats.
The trap itself is constructed with heavy gauge welded mesh, which is both galvanised and wrapped in green PVC to provide the highest levels of corrosion resistance. Using our green PVC coating both camouflage’s the trap from the target species and prevents unwanted interference. We only use stainless steel fixings in the construction of our traps, unlike similar cheaply made products on the market.
Our traps are specifically designed to work with bait to entice the animal into the trap.
How the Squirrel MK4 Fenn Tunnel works
The Tunnel is situated in a run, tree hollow, the contour of a wall or desired location for your target species. The Squirrel or Rat enters through either entrance of the trap, Traps set in runs do not require baiting, however baiting traps will improve catch rates. Once the tunnel is in position and has been anchored to the ground with suitable pins, the MK4 Fenn trap can be set. Bait is situated on the treadle plate of the Mk4 Fenn trap. The target species enters the Tunnel and moves over the MK4 Fenn trap, In doing so triggers the floor plate, which in turn releases the spring operated mechanism, instantly dispatching the target species.
We advise that if you are not familiar with the use and set-up of a Fenn Trap, please refrain from purchase.
These traps are more than capable of breaking bones, use extreme caution when setting and always use the safety features!
Our trap comes fully assembled and ready to use, we strongly advise covering the tunnel to prevent non-target species from entering.
