Setting the wood pigeon trap, grasp
the top handle and give the trap a good shake, then pull on the rear panel
until it clips into the side panel clips at the rear of the cage, (good practice to wire the end panel to the base of the trap) holding the door up against the 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 free end of the wire mesh treadle plate is at least 20mm above the cage
floor and at approx. 30°. Check the treadle does trip the door when pressed,
bait using grain under the trap directly under the tradle, Once set the trap MUST be visited regularly and AT LEAST ONCE PER DAY, other non target animals or birds must be released unharmed.
