We now offer our own take on the larsen mate trap, also known as a "clam trap" or a "butterfly trap". Perfect for catching trap-shy crows, the larsen mate trap can be used in conjuction with a standard larsen trap or set independently as a simple, lightweight alternative to larger traps.
The trap is simply set with a split perch which holds the cage open until a bird lands on it, releasing the spring and catching the bird securely inside. There has been some discussion in the sporting press as to the legality and suitability of this type of trap. Under the current regulations and general license conditions this trap is legal in all UK home countries. However if you are in any doubt as to the suitability of this trap or are concerned that other non target species (in particular "protected species") either avian or mamalian please do not use this trap. This situation is constantly being reviewed and as a consequence we have introduced a simpler single catch trap suitable for all corvids under the terms of the general licence. During testing on local estates this cube trap stock code 1326 has proved very successful and very reliable and is now out selling the clam type trap.
