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.(Style of free drinker may vary depending upon availablily)

Remember to check your trap at least twice a day and provide your call bird with food and water and a perch.

The following links courtesy of the NGO give more information and advice on the use and legal requirements when using these traps:

DEFRA has released the new set of General Licences for England that come into effect on the 1st of January 2021.  Be aware that there are separate licences for operating in Wales and Scotland.

The three main English Licences are GL40, GL41 and GL42. Additionally, GL33 gives you the conditions for trapping birds in Ladder and Larsen type traps and using and caring for live decoys.

You do not have to apply for the General Licences, but you do have to read, understand, and adhere to the conditions contained in them. It is important that you understand which licence each species can be controlled under and why.

Each licence has specific rules about its use on or near listed protected sites. Each listed European Protected site has a buffer zone around it, and you must comply to the additional conditions if you are using this licence on a European site or in its buffer zone. The list of the protected sites, the additional conditions and their buffer zones can be seen in all the licences in Condition 5, Table 2.


Solway Feeders Ltd accepts no responsibility for users who use the traps to catch non target species or use the traps outside the terms of the General Licence.
