Animal Trap is fully assembled for easy set-up and trapping of squirrels and other similar sized nuisance animals. Use it for the safe and effective control of unwanted wildlife in gardens, on farms and other wildlife habitats. Select the site where nuisance animals are a problem. For best results set up in an area away from regular human activity. Once set the trap(s) should be left in position for at least seven days before relocating.

Whether trapping birds or animals, we advise users to be mindful of their legal obligations to comply with The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, and to ensure that captured animals do not suffer.

  • Position traps away from natural or man-made hazards and areas prone to flooding.
  • It is good practice to check cage traps regularly for catches. Remove traps that can not be regularly checked.
  • Remember: the welfare of all captured animals becomes the responsibility of the captor.
  • For live releases: transport animals at least 3 miles from catch-site and release into a natural environment away from any obvious and immediate risk of danger or predators. Ensure there are adequate sources of food and shelter available nearby.

How often should I check the cage trap?
