Carrion crows and magpies can cause damage to agricultural livestock, and their habit of raiding other bird nests for eggs and chicks makes it important to control them in the spring.
The Solway Larsen Trap is well respected across the entire country as being one of the most efficient and simply designed traps for crows and magies, and the easy to use rectangular construction includes two trapping enclosures and a broad cage for the call bird. We also supply Pop Bottle Drinkers for these traps, to ensure that your call bird will always have sufficient water. Spare Springs can be supplied, which are also handy for homemade or DIY traps.
Live catch traps are extremely efficient at dealing with problem crows and magpies, and the Solway Multi Larsen is one of the best traps on the market. Designed to have three catching compartments and enough space for the comfortable enclosure of a call bird, these traps can quickly clear up large numbers of carrion crows. Thanks to the fact that they do not rely on springs, the traps are effectively indestructible, and the doors simply use gravity to slide shut down pre-assembled runners. A slightly smaller version is now available for Magpies.
