The PERDIX Larsen Mate Top Entry Trap can be used on its own or as an additional catching cage alongside our standard larsen trap. When used on its own, it is primarily designed to be used to catch magpies and jays using eggs (dummy or real) or other lures. The top entry door is activated via a wooden perch and is quickly and securely closed using a stainless steel extension spring.
The PERDIX Larsen Mate Top Entry Trap is made from high quality 1″ x 3″ (2.5 x 7.5cm) 12 gauge weld mesh and, as with all of our live-capture cage traps, the PERDIX Larsen Mate Trap is welded together rather than clipped to produce a very strong trap with no sharp edges. To protect the trap from corrosion and reduce its visibility while being used, The PERDIX Larsen Mate Top Entry Trap has a high quality olive drab powder-coated finish.
