The PERDIX Crow & Magpie Larsen Trap has been designed in conjunction with the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) advisory service to effectively capture corvid pest species (ie. crows, magpies, jackdaws, jays, rooks) but particularly crows and magpies. The decoy and catching components of our Larsen trap are built and sold separately. This gives the user the flexibility to change catching cages depending on the target species in an area. It also allows multiple catching cages to be placed next to a single decoy cage.
Three types of Larsen Trap catching cage are available 1) double side-entry 2) double top-entry and 3) side and top-entry (Combination). All doors are activated via a wooden perch and are quickly and securely closed using stainless steel extension springs. The side-entry door has a locking mechanism that prevents it from opening after activation.
The Larsen trap decoy cage is designed to keep the call-bird in good health. A welded metal sheet on the roof provides shelter from rain, wind and sun while the detachable and durable wooden batten allows the call-bird to perch and roost off the ground. Decoy cages are also supplied with a green cage cup for holding food and a bottle drinker for supplying clean water.
PERDIX Crow & Magpie Larsen Traps have many other features that make them the trap-choice for wildlife professionals, these include:
Welded Seams. The seams on our Larsen trap are welded not clipped. This produces a very strong trap with no sharp edges. Sharp edges can cause unnecessary injury to captured birds.
12 Gauge Weld Mesh. The PERDIX Larsen Trap is made from high quality 1″ x 3″ (2.5 x 7.5cm) 12 gauge weld mesh for maximum strength and durability.
Stainless Steel Extension Springs. The PERDIX Larsen Trap uses British-made stainless steel extension springs to make sure doors are closed quickly and securely every time.
Olive Drab Powder-Coated Finish. This high quality powder-coated finish provides excellent corrosion resistance and is easily cleaned. The colour also reduces the likelihood of the trap being seen and disturbed when in use.
Genuine Perdix Product. As with all of our branded products, our Larsen traps have been designed by wildlife professionals and built in Britain.
Value for Money. Our aim is produce high quality, long-lasting and effective products that are value for money.
