These traps are effective in their use as crow or magpie traps, and their simple construction makes them easy to operate and maintain. Made from durable weldmesh, the three compartments include a catch box at each end, with room for the call bird in the middle. You are now required by law (general licence) to secure the trap to the ground, 2 steel pegs are are now supplied. If you are trapping in Scotland you need to have a tag fixed to each trap with your authorised user number clearly visable.
When aggressive territorial crows approach the call bird, they land on the roof of the trap and hop in to attack. Their hop brings them down onto the wooden split trigger perch, which falls in half and sends them tumbling down into the catch box while the spring closes the door behind them. they are then contained until they can be dispatched. Recent tests by staff at Solway Feeders have found that these traps are very versatile, and that they work with particular efficiency in smaller gardens or paddocks where nearby trees provide visiting crows and magpies with the opportunity to drop down from above to inspect the call bird intruder. The Larsen traps come flat packed for self assembly, and all clips are included. We also provide split trigger perches, and a free drinker with instructions. Remember to check your trap at least twice a day and provide your call bird with food and water and a perch.
