This cage trap is designed to be versatile, and it is as capable of catching grey squirrels as it is of dealing with mink. It is longer than the squirrel cage trap, but the setting mechanism is much the same. The door closes inwards as it is sprung, and a lock slips into place which prevents it from being opened from the inside. There is a handle and a galvanised panel which provides the user with protection from being bitten by the captured animal. The trap comes with instructions for use, and we have also published a product guide on this site which provides a basic introduction to setting and operating these traps. For best use, the trap requires an attractive bait such as peanuts, bananas or peanut butter for squirrels, or rotten meat or fish for mink. We do not supply these with the trap.
It is important to remember that grey squirrels are not native to Great Britain, and each year they expand their range at the expense of the british red squirrel. It is illegal to release a grey squirrel into the wild from one of these traps, so you must take care to prepare an appropriate means of dispatching any trapped animal before setting a squirrel cage trap.
