TRAP DESCRIPTION: Great trap for catching multiple large turtles at one time. This trap measures 42" Long x 24" Wide x 12" Tall. Turtles enter through one door by pushing on it to get to the bait inside. The door easily opens and will close behind them once inside.
Turtles are motivated to enter the trap when it is baited with something the turtles are eating that is found locally. This could be a type of plant, fruit, vegetable or fish. Turtles will try to access the trap by walking around it pushing on the sides of the trap as they go. It also has a "bait door" near the back of the trap to allow quick and easy baiting of the trap without reaching through the repeating trap door. It works especially well on snapping turtles and other strong species.
WHERE TO USE IT: Mostly used on land, this trap is best set along shore lines of water which is serving as a host for turtles. Try sets with entrance doors pointed into the water as well as parallel to the shore. Whichever set catches turtles faster should then be used all the time. They can also be used on floating rafts since many turtles will access these to sun themselves. Shallow water ditches, which have no more than 2-4 inches of water, also make good places to make a set.
RATE OF APPLICATION: As is the case with most live traps, the more installed will help to provide faster and better results.
