The feature of these traps is that the animal to be caught is deceived by the clear unobstructed view through the open doors. No bait is required. Just place in a traffic-way of the animal to be caught. The animal is unharmed and can be released if not the intended catch. All metal construction. The traps are supplied folded flat, and are easily erected without tools required. Dimensions: Medium - 100cm long x 30cm wide x 30cm high. NB: See separate box for more details.
Single-entry trap with central bait tray. Movement of the tray drops the guillotine-style door, trapping the animal. Bait can be meat or fresh entrails. (Also see attractants these pages.) Dimensions: 62cm long x 21cm high x 21cm wide. All metal construction.
Our 'double entry' mouse trap is low-line so it can sit under furniture or out of sight. There is an entry each side. As the mouse walks in the entry the floor drops down and lets it through. The floor then rises up again preventing egress. The trap is all-galvanised, but the top is clear plastic. This serves to encourage other mice in as soon as one is caught inside. (Mice like to socialise in small places.) It also allows view of bait, and allows you to see when it needs emptying. Lid opens for baiting and exit of mice. Dimensions: 26cm long x 16cm deep x 5cm high.
We reckon even Houdini Mouse will not escape one of these. Like all live-catch traps, mice go into these more for the social experience than for the food it is baited with. Dimensions: small 18cm L x 10cm W x 7cm H. Large 29cm L x 14cm W x 12cm H. All zinc plated steel. Easily opened by swing-over bars.
This wire-tube trap is best used directly in the burrow hole to catch the emerging rabbit. Other burrow exits should be blocked. The one-way door is propped open with a straw so it will close as soon as the rabbit enters. The live rabbit can then be disposed of. Dimensions: length 81cm, diameter 13cm.
This wire cage trap incorporates a clever non-return trap door that ensures no escape. Bait is placed on central tray. Rear door opens for placement of bait, and easy removal of captured rat. This trap can catch more than one rat before needing to be emptied. Dimensions: 42cm long x 24cm wide x 18cm high. All metal construction.
