It did not come with ANY instructions, so I had to figure it out myself. I set it at the chipmunk hole with a couple small stones on the spring to hold it in place. It was the perfect size for the hole. Shortly afterwards it caught and killed the animal. Wonderful trap! I wore thick work gloves when setting the trap to protect my fingers.

I ordered a couple of these traps to simplify my chipmunk trapping. I had previously used Safeguard box traps which work great but require a bucket of water to drown the captives. The body trap is easier, faster and neater and most kills are rapid. Do remember to stake down or staple the trap to an anchor, stump or log. I got lazy and lost one this summer when some critter absconded with a free chipmunk meal and my trap in the middle of the night. I have found that the trap works very well inside a box cubby with a small container of sunflower seed bait positioned between the trap and the back of the wood cubby. I let them come to me instead of searching out the burrow holes. I find that they are sometimes shy about exiting the hole that has the trap over it. A baited cubby circumvents this problem. I'm up to 31 chipmunks this summer and still counting (without moving the cubby).

Bought these traps for chipmunks and ground squirrels that were digging under my retaining walls. In the two weeks I've had them set I've caught 27 chipmunks and 2 ground squirrels! These things are the real deal! Wish I would have bought 2 more right away! Awesome trap!

I got two of these to stop chipmunks from tunneling under my sidewalk and they're fantastic traps. 10/10 would recommend if you have a small animal problem.

Great trap, perfect for chipmunks. I was after a wood rat tonight and it made a perfect catch right behind the ears. However, it was a little underpowered for the rat. Still, very happy to have this trap in my toolbox.

Just like trapping muskrats back in the day. Caught 8 chipmunks out of one hole in 3 days!

I have tried the usual rat traps and after one or two is caught they quit hitting the trap. I placed these over the rat's entrance/exit holes and it worked perfectly. Once I quit catching them I filled the holes.

I tried everything before (Rat Trap with P. Butter, The wood plank with a bucket of baited water, Glue Boards) Also would shoot them with a 22 scoped rifle. But too many bad ricochets! I bought this size and the 3.5 size and they have made a world of difference. Wish I had known about them 20 years ago. Life is good now!

I have had two of these for a five years, now and they work great. Rarely ever a "trip" without a chipmunk being in it.
