The Folding Humane Live Catch Rabbit Trap should always be sited as soon as damage is spotted. Ideally The Folding Rabbit Trap, should be set out approximately 8mts apart, in a parallel line of traps about 4mts out from their cover, hedgerow, ditch cop etc. The Humane Rabbit Trap can also be sited in open fields where rabbits have been observed feeding recently.
This trap is popular with pest control companies and farmers because of the folding rabbit trap's competitive price especially if purchased in six-packs, light weight (2.75 kgs), quick set up, and ease of storage
Check the number of rabbits to gauge how many rabbit traps to purchase.
Place each Trap Man rabbit trap in line with the hedgerow or ditch cop so that the bait lines run towards the next Rabbit Trap. Prepare the bait with fresh carrots cut length wise in to four, lay the bait in a trail to just inside the rabbit trap, place another piece right at the back of the rabbit cage trap under the treadle under the cage, place a line of bait 1mt apart between the rabbit traps. The bait inside the trap must be maintained at the back of the trap or under the trap directly under the wire treadle, but the bait out side the trap should not be replaced
Set the live catch rabbit trap by first holding on to the handle and give the trap a good shake, then pull on the rear panel until it is firm and the prongs fit 2 holes from the rear of the cage. Flip up the secondary lock on to the top of the door, holding the door up against the roof with the secondary lock prongs through the cage roof, with your other hand pass the trigger rod through the hole in the open door then though the marked hole in the cage top. Sensitivity can be adjusted by bending the end of the setting rod up to lessen the sensitivity or down to increase the sensitivity. Check that the treadle plate is 20mm above the cage floor approx. 30°. Check the treadle does trip the door when pressed, and that the secondary door locks it correctly. Once baited the Trap Man Live Catch Rabbit Traps MUST be visited regularly and AT LEAST ONCE PER DAY, other non target animals must be released unharmed. The bait inside the trap must be maintained under the treadle under the trap, but the trail of bait out side the trap should not be replaced once the rabbits have started to take it. Rabbits can be removed by slowly tipping the trap onto it's end and reaching in through the now open door or turning the trap over onto it's roof to open the door and let the rabbit run out.
