Product Code: WCSTUBERR
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 baiting 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.
5/5 Catching squirrels is a , 1.27.2016

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.
5/5 Love the trap, 9.11.2014
Reviewer: Yohan Ly (South St Paul, MN)
I was to able to get all the grey squirrels that are messing up my plants on my deck by digging up the potting soil. It was a mess on the deck every morning, I was so fed up with it. And it works great with peanut butter and bread, I get a squirrel every time. It would recommended it to anyone who had the same problem as me. It's a DIY pest controlled in your backyard, instead of calling/paying those professional pest controlled guys to do the job and released it somewhere to be someone else problem. As for me, this trap is better than the cage trap because you don't have to kill squirrel yourself. The trap is doing it for you. It is a very great trap. I really like it. As for the price, it's fine cause it's great and well built product.
5/5 Excellent trap, 8.18.2014
Reviewer: John Smith (New York, NY)
Very effective trap. I've caught over a dozen and it's lethal every time. I personally use peanut butter and think its the best bait. The trap takes a little muscle to set the first time but after a few weeks it gets easier to set. I'm a little concerned that when I put the bait on the pad the squirrel doesn't apply enough weight to trigger it but 75% of the time the animal is trapped and 25% of the time they get the bait. I tried it without bait for two weeks and I caught nothing. Then I baited it and I caught an animal every day for the next week. I also haven't had much luck baiting above the pad, on the roof of the trap. The squirrel can clear that without setting it off.
5/5 Very Effective for Squirrels, 1.7.2013
Reviewer: LHH (, 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.
