Bird Traps work well on grackle, sparrow and other birds that can
be baited into the trap. Our bird traps come assembled with small
wire mesh openings, and two repeating trap doors. Birds enter the
trap through funnel doors on each end of the trap. The unique
design of the funnel doors encourages birds to move forward, into
the traps, as they eat the bait.
For best trapping results, construct a
platform 5 to 6 feet above ground and long enough to extend 6 to 8
inches beyond each end of the trap. The platform should be
pre-baited for several days before a trap is introduced. After the
birds become familiar with their new feeding spot, place the bird
trap on the platform. Place plenty of grain in the middle of the
trap, sprinkle some around the outer edges of the trap, and make
sure to sprinkle some leading into the trap.
