Description


Get rid of those pesky squirrels with the Tube Trap. Used either baited or non-baited, the Tube Trap is a natural attractant to squirrels wanting to run through it or hide in it. Once the squirrel reaches the pan in the middle of the trap, the double torsion spring is triggered. When a capture is made, the squirrel is generally hidden from public view. The trap features a safety hook, is constructed of 21-gauge steel, and measures 4.5 in diameter and 15L. Caution: This is a lethal trap, use special care when and where setting.

Squirrels everywhere in and around my house; used to hear some in the attic. The tube trap is the most effective thing I ever bought to reduce the squirrel population. I have caught many squirrel and 1 chipmunk. Very humane.

We have 3 traps and have caught almost 80 animals from May 1 to August 13th. We have caught 32 squirrels, 34 chipmunks, 4 pack rats and several mice. My husband sets them and the peanut butter is eaten off the trap every once in a while but when you catch them it makes up for the misses. This is the best trap we have found.

Works as advertised. Difficult to remove rodent. I have two traps, and one is very difficult to set--requires the use of channel locks to compress the spring.

I wore my first trap out, so decided to buy a new one after four years. Despite constructive criticisms by reviewers, the manufacturer has ignored advice and decided to keep the status quo and not make improvements. I've had the trap for several months now, and cannot set the trap sensitive enough to catch even a single squirrel. It's basically just a peanut butter feeding station. Don't waste your money.

Trap works as advertised. However, it requires too much handling/fiddling to remove the animal. Also, the product is not rust proof or rust resistant but is intended for outside use. This make no sense. Someone recommended priming and painting it but that's a weekend project not a finished product. Would recommend they zinc galvanize and also solder a hook to keep the device in the set position, making it easier to remove dead animal.

My residential neighborhood has been overrun with squirrels. I decided to do something about it. While browsing the internet looking for catch alive traps, I found this trap. Why have to deal with an angry squirrel after trapping it alive? I started baiting my new trap on May 6th, and today, May 23rd, I can count 12 that I have removed from the neighborhood. At first it was 2 or 3 a day, and now the pace is a little slower. To bait the trap, I smear peanut butter on both sides of the bait paddle and then stick some peanut halves and sunflower seeds into the pb 'glue'. I place the trap on the ground between my squirrel-proof bird feeder and the bird bath, where it is in sight from my study, but is not obvious to neighbors. I only put it out when I am able to monitor it, and I take it in at night.

Exceeds expectations! Our neighborhood was over run by squirrels. Not any more. Took my first one within an hour after UPS dropped it off. 40+ in three weeks. Problem solved. Just like a mouse trap, it takes them out quick, humanely, and mess free. As an earlier posted suggested, I put peanut butter on bread and placed it just behind the trip plate and placed the tube against a fence so it only had one way in. They're used to going in holes so they went in, sometimes 5 a day. I baited them with a taste just outside the front opening. It was a kill every time. Never just caught just part of it like a tail or leg. It was clean every time. Left it out over night a couple of times an got a pregnant possum and a fat stinky skunk. I didn't care for that and took it in at night from then on. This thing does the job very well!

I HAD squirrels chewing on my fence. They were eating everything in my backyard. I HAD squirrels taking food from the table on the patio. Once the trap was in place i couldn't bait it fast enough, I caught 9 squirrel in 5 days. They were standing in line to get caught. If they figured it out leave the trap baited but not set. Once they get use to the trap set it up. Overall my yield was better then i expected. I am very happy with this product.

I have apple trees and have been angered by the squirrels eating most of my apples in the past. I have successfully trapped 139 squirrels, just in my backyard, with this trap! I use peanut butter, but the trick is to put one of the open ends of the tube up against a wall or something. Then, put a dab of peanut butter on the trigger pan, and a 2nd dab inside near the blocked off end. That way, they have to step over and onto the pan to get the 2nd bite of peanut butter. If you only put the bait on the pan, they can eat it off without ever stepping on it. After 139 squirrels (and one poor skunk that got caught around the shoulders and survived just fine), this poor trap has gotten so banged up and bent that it won't stay set any more so I'll be getting a new one. Highly recommended!

I use this trap in my fenced vegetable garden and fruit orchard, to eliminate the smart varmints that figure out how to get in. Definitely paint it before the first use. The tube is wide enough that you can paint even the inside well. I use camouflage paint (Home Depot) to disguise it from the crafty Varmint...and it looks real cool.

I purchased this trap about 2 months ago and to date, have trapped 21 squirrels. For awhile I was getting 2 per day! Now I'm down to 1 every 2 or 3 days, but it is very effective. My bird feeders and cedar siding are now much safer. I use peanut butter mixed with black oil sunflower seeds to bait and the varmits can't resist.

The release mechanism can be polished if its not sensitive enough, or "roughened" if its too sensitive. The best bait we've found is peanut butter. Our three-neighbor total in three years is over 1000. We just wanted to thin them out, but we still occasionally get 4 in one day.

I agree the trap is great when it works, I get a good yield but the squirrels get wise to it and learn how to not trip it. Maybe the "latch" that holds the spring down should be reconsidered so it is more sensitive to the animal touching the food on the bait plate.

I don't believe this trap could be improved, except for adding primer paint. It works perfectly. I have gotten 126 eastern fox squirrels (tree rats) in 2008. Two of my neighbors have similar numbers. Squirrels got gnawed into attics and made nests and caused a neighborhood rebellion. Thanks to a great trap, we're at least thinning the rodents.

The trap works great WHEN it works, which is only about half the time or less. Squirrels can easily get the bait off without tripping it. I even have it set so it's barely latched, so theoretically, it should go off at the slightest touch. There are a lot of well-fed squirrels around here with peanut butter in their bellies! I concur that it needs to be primed and painted or it turns into a rusty mess. It's a pain to set as well. I've pinched my hand several times. Surely improvements can be made...

I recommend spray painting the new trap with a good automotive primer before using the first time. Otherwise the bare steel will become a rusty mess. Bait the traps with peanut butter. They work great!!

I am using my second squirrel tube trap, and I just ordered my third. We have a major problem with Eastern Fox Squirrels. They eat holes in houses and build nests in attics. Three of us have been using the traps for four years. We each have gotten approx. 100 squirrels per year. The traps will last for about 300 squirrels, and then the spring looses its tension. They are great!!
