The Harris Catch & Release Humane Trap is designed for Small Squirrels, Rats & Chipmunks. The reusable humane trap won't harm animals and is made with thick steel to ensure that animals will remain trapped until you release them. Keep these critters out of your home/attic in the most humane way possible!How to Use Your Trap:
Although squirrels might seem cute, they can do tons of damage if they make their way inside a property. These unwanted guests can easily take up residency in your attics and crawl spaces. Here are some easy ways to remove a squirrel humanely with our live trap.
The Harris Humane Trap is the perfect size to trap squirrels, small enough to not be too hard to locate or handle, yet large enough that most any size squirrel will fit. The wire mesh allows you to see through the trap and identify if you have caught a squirrel.
You will want to place the trap on as much of a flat surface as possible, and directly in the squirrels path. This could be along a wall in the attic or crawlspace, any spot on your roof that is accessible from a tree or powerline. Unlike rats, you do not need to place the traps in areas that allow them harborage or cover such as brush and shrubs. Squirrels are comfortable in the open areas, so place at the base of trees, or along fence lines or base of a tree. You will want to place the bait in the far middle of the trap on the bait hook, as to allow them to enter the Harris Humane Trap completely, but not gain access to the bait from the sides. Unshelled peanuts and peanut butter work well to lure the squirrels into the traps. You will want to check the trap often, so that the squirrel is not trapped longer than necessary. One you have trapped the squirrel you will want to wear gloves and hold the trap by the handle to relocate them at least 10 miles away. Our tight mesh cages make it close to impossible for the squirrels to scratch or bite, but care should always be used with dealing with wild animals. Clean the trap with a disinfectant to prevent the spread of any disease.
