Checking the trap
Once the trap is set it must, by UK law, be visited at least once
a day. We would recommend more frequent checking; in woodland
situations early in the morning and again before dark; in gardens, check
every few hours. If the bait is being eaten and the trap is not being
tripped the probable reason are that mice or similar small animals are
taking the bait the animals are not heavy enough to trip the trap, if
you suspect this is happening raise the trap clear of the gound
You asked me to let you know how I got on with the squirrel trap I bought
from you a few weeks back. Well we are now 3 squirrels the better. All
have been caught with Snickers as bait. For the first week we didn’t get
anything but as our loft is obviously dark we left the light on and shut
the loft door. One day later squirrel no1, 3 days later squirrel no2.
Nothing for a week then we caught one but left it for an hour. By the
time we got up there to retrieve the cage it had managed to somehow escape.
Must have been half in and half out. 2 days later squirrel no3. Very angry,
running up and down the cage head butting the gate!!
All in all I would recommend your cages to anybody. Easily set, well made
and most importantly they work! All the best and thanks for your help
and advice, Regards, G D
I am very impressed.
I ordered a squirrel trap on Friday and it was delivered at lunchtime
today (Tuesday) as promised. I baited it and trapped my first squirrel
after just 2 hours. Great service, great product.
Dear trap man
We used the trap today for the first time. We caught 4 squirrels in 2
hours. As far as we know these were the only 4 using our garden regularly
(no doubt we shall be proved mistaken of course), The results speak for
Absolutely excellent.It was effective and easy to use and painless to
Man Squirrel Trap......... .......
Did exactly as it said on the tin!! Caught the little beggar in my loft
36 hours after setting trap (with peanut butter, crunchy type), and have
now got rid of it and blocked up the hole to stop its mates getting in!.
Worth every penny - no more chewed light cables and loft beams!
I have used three
different traps over the years and yours is by far the best both in terms
of how it operates and how it is made. Its a dream to use compared with
the previous difficulties I have had with temperamental setting devices
on other traps. I have now caught 11 squirrels in about 5 days! The detailed
information leaflet you supply with the trap also contains very useful
data which none of the other suppliers have provided.
Thank you for a very good product at a sensible price.

I'm just sending you this quick e mail to thank you for your v quick service;
the trap arrived as promised and before the Xmas break so I could get
our resident squirrel used to it. After about a week, the squirrel trapped
himself in it as his curiosity got the better of him. He doesn't live
Thanks again. L J
you for your exceptionally prompt and eficient service.
I had browsed your website thoroughly before placing my order and I was
particularly impressed by the inclusion of a small number of dissatisfied
customers on your feedback page. More than any other factor, this persuaded
me that I should order the trap from your company, rather than one of
yopur competitors. Your responses to these dissatisfied customers, coupled
with the massive amount of extremely satisfied customers, indicated to
me that your company was a reputable one.
The squirrel trap arrived the day after I had placed the order, just as
you had promised. Since the infestation is in an utterly inaccessible
part of my loft, I set it up the same evening at the closest possible
location - which is about 10 feet away from the nest. Following your advice,
I baited it with peanut butter, as well as a handful of dried cat food
for added odour. Next evening, I had caught a very healthy, plump female
squirrel. Never having seen an adult squirrel close-up before, I had not
realised what attractive creatures they are - it is only a pity they do
so much damage. I have now reset the trap, since I believe there are several
more "just waiting their turn".
Although I noted from your feedback that your customers reported success
within 24 hours, I was really rather dubious due to my particular circumstances.
How pleased I am to have been wrong! I shall have no hesitation in recommending
your company whenever appropriate and you are, of course, most welcome
to use any part of this email as you may see fit. D B M W
