These traps work equally well when protecting farm crops, horticulture, forestry, domestic and amenity sites. For control in gardens and small spaces, one or two traps are enough to quickly capture visiting rabbits. Bait with a strong trail of sliced carrots, cabbage leaves,vegetable or potato peelings leading into the trap with a good sized handful at the treadle end of the trap. Remember the bait needs to be more tempting than the surrounding vegetation.

For catching and controlling rabbits which may be destroying arable/horticultural crops the pest numbers will be alot higher. We recommend these traps are used in groups of 10 and are spaced about 10 - 15 paces apart. It is more effective to concentrate the traps in one area, say down a wood side, and heavily bait/ trap that site for a week or two before moving onto another spot. Place the traps parallel along the wood or grass field side in the grazed area of the crop usually before the first tramline. Bait the traps heavily with sliced carrots, cabbage leaves, pealings or sugar beet slices. Check the traps daily, remove any captured rabbits and rebait the traps. 4 - 8 rabbits should be caught most days and by the end of two weeks you will have begun to make a hole in the local rabbit population.

Because these traps are humane, non-target species such as pheasants and hedgehogs can be released unharmed.
