The PERDIX Grey Squirrel trapping tunnel has been designed to improve trapping efficiency and humaneness and also prevent non-target captures. Using a unique combination of solid steel non-target excluders, wire mesh baffles, a pre-baiting system and two powerful KORO large rodent traps, our Grey Squirrel trapping tunnel is ideal for controlling Grey Squirrels in any environment. This tunnel and trap combination can also be used to trap rats.
The central area of the tunnel is designed to be used as a bait dispenser to allow pre-baiting prior to setting the traps. Once Grey Squirrels are taking the bait, the two KORO large rodent traps can be placed in the tunnel to quickly catch the visiting animals. By pre-baiting and then being able to set two traps in the same set, the PERDIX Grey Squirrel trapping tunnel can vastly improve trapping efficiency.
To prevent non-target animals captures, each trapping tunnel is equipped with solid 2mm olive drab powder coated steel excluders that easily let squirrels (and rats) through but not larger non-target species. These can, however, be removed for cleaning or when pre-baiting. The tunnels also have an internal solid steel baffle in front of each trap to ensure squirrels are positioned correctly when stuck by the trap and therefore killed humanely.
The PERDIX Grey Squirrel trapping tunnel is constructed from high quality plywood treated with a spirit based wood preservative to ensure long life in the field. A double hinged lid allows for quick and easy access to the bait compartment and traps. The lid is securely closed using a strong hasp and carbine hook. For additional security, a padlock (not supplied) could be used.
