WCS Tube Trap - Standard

Product Code: WCSTUBE

Price: $34.50

The WCS™ Tube Trap is a very effective squirrel trap and has stood the test of time, now being on the market for over 20 years.  Constructed of 21-gauge steel, this tunnel shaped trap is 4.5 inches in diameter, 15 inches long, and is powered by a beefy double torsion spring.

Used either baited or non-baited, the Tube Trap is a natural attractant to squirrels and other rodents wanting to run through it or hide in it. Once the squirrel reaches the triggering pan in the middle of the trap, and steps on it, the double torsion spring triggers the strike bar. When a capture is made, the squirrel is generally hidden from public view.  There is a built in safety latch which prevents the trap from prematurely firing while setting.

Caution: The WCS™ Tube Trap is a lethal trap, use special care when and where setting.

BAITING: There are two preferred ways of using the TUBE Trap in a baited fashion. First, using your favorite paste type bait smear some directly onto the triggering pan of the Tube trap. For added appeal, press some bird seed of sunflower seeds into the paste bait. Then take a 1/4" piece of hardware cloth or screening and lay it on top of the triggering pan containing the bait and wrap the edges around the pan. The easiest way to do this is to grip it with your hand. This makes it harder for the squirrel to access the bait, and they have to work at it.

The second method involves smearing your favorite paste bait directly above the pan. To do this, turn the trap completely over, BEFORE SETTING IT, and smear the paste directly over the pan area.  Then turn the trap back over and set it according to proper instructions.  Again, this makes the squirrel work for the bait as they will be focused on the bait, not on the triggering pan.

Reviewer: (Riverside, NJ)
Tried the live traps and relocation. Not my decision. That wasn't working at all and convinced the better half we need a plan "B". Especially after a second hole was discovered in my soffit. Repairs will be made in short order but the critters need to go first dear, he said... Found WCS on-line and found this tube trap. Win win it appeared to me, I have to purchase one and try it. I was not disappointed. Set it a six PM and by 8 AM the next morning (1 hr after daybreak)had my first squirrel! Powerful, well built, great design and it really works. Invest in the accessories for setting and perhaps a cap with the hole on just one end so this sensitive trap won't trip if it wants to roll slightly. Just make the hole bigger for squirrels. Worth every penny, if your not the squeamish type get it and get rid of them.

This lethal trap is excellent for squirrel removal having added benefit of effectively hiding catch from sight unlike other body grip traps that require "boxing" to get same results. Baited or not seems like squirrels just can't resist running through a tube trap...once.

Reviewer: (Vernon, CT)
Had a stubborn female squirrel, kept avoiding our live traps and chewing new holes in wood siding...the siding we had just patched up. Anyways, We set this trap and within hours we had her. Very happy happy with the tube trap. We'll be using this product more often!

Reviewer: (, Rhode Island)
We bought these to try and reduce gray squirrel damage to our deck and furniture around our bird feeders. On the first day, we caught 8 gray squirrels in less than 8 hours. The traps are well built, heavy duty, and will last for years. Squirrels enter these more readily than the Havaharts we had been using. We are very pleased.

This trap has so many applications. Gable vent,soffit,fireplace,gutter,sill,siding, dryer vent entry ... you name it, can be adapted to almost any application. I have not used cages for squirrels in years. Species specific, I have used it unbaited and caught squirrels running through, natural curiosity. Have this trap in 15" and the shorty. Use the mounting hardware that's available and go. Easy to set, discreet and humane.
