I am pleased with this product. It's easy to set and to remove trapped squirrels from.

These traps work! We live on a sandy hillside riddled with ground squirrel tunnels which is causing a great deal of erosion on our property. Iâ€™m happy with the success and the number of squirrels killed this spring, this is the second year weâ€™ve used the same traps! I bait as directed, peanut butter works well. Iâ€™m a 55 year old woman, and at first it was difficult for me to set the trap until I learned how to do it. The safety is a great help! This a very effective, inexpensive, humane way to manage squirrels, prevent property damage and not introduce poison to other native wild life species.

In the 2+ months I've had this trap, it has killed exactly 1 squirrel. I use peanuts and peanut butter for bait, and have it mounted atop a 6' high fence that squirrels regularly use. They run over it, under it, and around it; but never do more than poke their head just in the opening to sniff. I closed off one end and loaded it with peanuts. Two days later the trap had been sprung and the peanuts were gone. My wife calls it a squirrel feeder. I've killed 5 squirrels with a large spring rat trap that I recently bought last week on Amazon and put on a different section of the fence. I'm just glad I didn't buy the stainless steel model of this junk.

worked great! Set the trap one day, eliminated the squirrel the next. Didn't come with instructions though, had to watch a YouTube video.

I have one of these traps mounted on top of a fence that grey squirrels regularly use as a path across my property. In the almost two weeks that it has been baited and set, it has caught one (1) squirrel. For bait I'm using chunky peanut butter and peanuts which are still in the shell. The squirrels have been jumping or running over it, or just going around it. It has caught and killed four (4) sparrows, which is not our intention.

This is the second Tube Trap I have purchased. These are great traps as the rodents do not escape. I use a little peanut butter and some bird seed. I also put a piece of field corn in the end with a blank end cap. It does the trick every time. My first trap was given to a friend and it didn't make it back before I decided I needed another one. My friend is still using my first one and he likes it as well as I do.

Nice trap but it should have been galvanized as these are placed outside and the casing is rusting right after the first rain.

I spent almost half a day trying to figure this thing out, after 13 days with two traps on a squirrel path...and no squirrels caught. Squirrels (gray) weigh 0.9 to 1.3 lbs according to one source...so one foot on the trap should load it to about 4 oz. I tested my initial settings for trip force, and trigger/pan overlap. The trap set at 1/16" overlap tripped at 8 oz, and the trap set at 1/8" overlap tripped at 12 oz. It was not my intent to set the traps differently, but it is very hard to see the actual overlap while setting the trap. My data shows anything larger than 1/16" overlap is probably a waste of time unless you have a stomping squirrel. 1/32" is preferable, but on the verge of auto-tripping. I believe the pan bolt should be moved away 1 to 2 inches to give greater sensitivity and ease of setting. I worked around this problem somewhat by cutting 1/4" long sections of 3/32" rubber vacuum hose, and sliding them over the 1/8" trigger ends...then used a ruler to expose exactly 1/32" of steel for the overlap with pan. Caught two squirrels within an hour (also used new bait). Traps worked great...perfect pelts, no blood or other body fluids. I have already set them out again.

Trap worked first time I set it out. Had huge Grey squirrels chewing holes in my feed bins and getting into the trash and pulling all the garbage out onto the ground. Baited the trap with peanut butter and caught the first one within hours! Trap is really strong and should last a long time. Thank you!

Put an un-baited trap in Quonset where ground squirrels had been entering building. Caught and killed 7 Richardson's and one 13-lined ground squirrel this past summer. Told my friend about the trap as he was having trouble with red squirrels in his garden. He bought a trap and got 6 of the critters this summer. Both of us are impressed with the traps. I purchased 2 more traps this fall to use closer to the burrows of the ground squirrels next spring and summer. I'll likely bait such traps and am expecting good results.
