Magpie traps can be extremely effective at reducing the numbers of these wily birds, and anyone with an interest in conservation or gamekeeping will be interested these plastic magpie decoys, which help you to catch the all-important first bird. Realistically shaped and painted, these hollow decoys are designed to help you to catch a call bird, and once you have one, you can be sure that plenty of others will follow.
The GWCT recently conducted a study which found that a trap with a call bird is fifteen times more likely to catch others than a trap that is simply baited, and this decoy may just give you the edge to get started.
Magpie decoys can be used with Multi Larsen Trap, Solway Larsen Trap, and the Multi Catch Magpie Trap, and they include a length of wooden dowel which can be driven into the ground to secure the item in a conspicuous spot where it will attract the attention of wild birds. All live catch traps should be checked at least once every day, and call birds caught using a magpie decoy should be provided with sufficient quantities of water and food. More information on laws which relate to larsen traps can be found in our guide to larsen traps.
