Rabbit Traps & Wood Duck houses


Rabbit Trap

Rabbit traps

After the animal enters and trips the door shut, the door cannot open
but you can remove the animal by opening the top locking door. Also,
when a animal enters and triggers the door closed, the flagged rod will
drop down showing you from a distance that there is a animal in your
trap. These traps are made of 100% Cedar and should last many years. The
dimensions are 8"x9"and 29" long. Trap weighs approximately, 13 lbs. Anyone who has tried to get a rabbit to go into a wire cage knows that it isn't that easy.

Chipmunk, Rat and Red Squirrel  Traps

Test
Here is the LITTLE brother of mycedarwoodproducts.com Rabbit traps. A customer of mine
had asked me if I had any traps for small animals like the pesty chipmunk and I didn't but it made
me look into it and the only ones I found were the wire caged ones that really don't work that great.
I ended up reducing the size of my rabbit traps and tweaking a little here and there. My trial was when
my wife told me there was a chipmunk in the garage which surprised me cause I though that I had rid
my place of all them critters by other means than traping. Set the trap in the garage using a cracker
for bait and after 10 minutes I looked in the window and saw the flag was down and chipmunk caught.

As with the rabbit traps, After the animal enters and trips the door shut, the door cannot open
but you can remove the animal by opening the top locking door. Also, when a animal enters
and triggers the door closed, the flagged rod will drop down showing you from a distance that
there is a animal in your trap. These traps are made of 100% Cedar and should last many years.
The dimensions are 5" x 5 1/2" and 15" long. Trap weighs, 2.8 lbs. Anyone who has tried to
get a Chipmunk to go into a wire cage knows that it isn't that easy as with other animals.

I am very pleased with the rabbit trap I purchased. It is cheaper than a
commercial trap and works better because of the wooden sides and no
wire. The first night I caught a rabbit unlike the other trap I had
purchased.
Thanks much

Just wanted to let you know that since I bought my rabbit trap from you
about a month ago, I have caught 4 rabbits and two squirrels in my yard.
I never used to catch them in my wire cages. All I used for bait was black sunflower seeds.
Thank you so much!!! Keep making these traps. . .they really work!!
My expensive shrubbery used to get so chewed up by the rabbits, it was
pathetic. Viburnums and spireas were chewed to the ground every year.
Even the trunks of the apple trees were getting stripped of bark because
the rabbits were starving last year.
You can't shoot guns in the city, so what other option is there?
Please feel free to use my comments in whatever way you see fit, because your trap works!
Thank you so very much!
Don

I strongly endorse Steve's  Wood Duck Houses.  I hunt flooded timber and millet along the
Illinois River and wood ducks are a large part of our harvest.  The houses enable one to
almost grow their own wild ducks.  In terms of construction, Steve has taken the strong points
of most of the commercially available kits, added upgrades, and produced an easy to use,
durable and effective product that the ducks use.

Just want to let you know since purchasing one of your rabbits traps about 3 weeks ago, I already caught 3 rabbits. I am so happy, my perennials and shrubs are so happy. This is one of the best made traps I have seen and so easy to set, a child could do it and yes, the bird feed works great as bait. I will keep spreading the news of your traps to my friends.

Comment just received from a couple that called and asked if these traps
would catch Rats. I told them that I never had anyone try them for
rats but they bought two to try because of their rat problem. It's been a
week since they got them and I got this comment from them.


Hi Steve, We are the people that bought your red squirrel traps to catch
rats in our barns. The first night we set two traps and caught two
rats. The second night we caught two rats. The third night we only
caught one rat but I think it was because we used cheese in one of the
traps instead of the sweet feed that we had used the first two nights. I
think the sweet feed is better to use than other bait. When we remove
the rats from the traps we unlatch the cover and lower the trap down
into a 50 gallon barrel and then open the top. We thought of releasing
the rats far away from our farm but we didn't think it was fair that the
farmers in that area would be the recipient of our rat problem. I don't
like to kill things but I can't have the rats destroying our feed. We
are very pleased with the results that we have been getting by using
your traps.

Thank you very much!
Phyllis

The chipmunk trap.  I set it outside near the hole where they were apparently getting in the field stone basement.
Caught nothing.  Set it up in the basement.  The first night I caught something..... I don't know what because it
chewed up inside somewhat and managed to escape. I'm not sure what chipmunk droppings look like, but what
was left in the trap looked like from a rat.  I figured I needed to bend  the catch out a little so it wouldn't escape again.
That caused a problem because the door wasn't heavy enough to close.  I fixed that problem by adding several large
washers to the door for weight so it would close with more force. I then caught two different kinds of rats.


The  rabbit trap.  It works great catching rabbits, Nine so far in one day. The only problem is my bloodhound.
Your trap is strong, heavy and well made.....but a 110 pound bloodhound who is determined to
get at a rabbit in it can cause some difficulty. He chewed up the wood on both ends and managed
to get the door open and tore it off the hinge. Don't know if he got the rabbit or not.  So......
I put the door back on and screwed extra pieces of wood around the door so that they stick out
eight inches or so.  That protects the wood and keeps him far enough from the door that he can't
get at it so easily.
