TRAP DESCRIPTION: 31″ Wide x 22″ Tall x 22″ Long. Floating trap which takes advantage of the desire turtles have to sun themselves. Featuring two entry ramps, this trap works by presenting itself as a comfortable place on which to rest. Unsuspecting turtles will climb up either ramp to get to what they believe is a stable platform where they can rest in the sun. However, once on the top side of the “trigger platform”, the hinged flippers will drop down and cause the turtle to fall down into the holding area of the trap. There it will remain caught. Though they cannot escape, trapped turtles will be kept alive for relocation. Similar to the standard Sunning Trap, this design is more robust and stronger using aluminum mesh and solid Styrofoam. All parts are replaceable and traps can remain in service indefinitely.
WHERE TO USE IT: Any body of water where turtles are present and like to sun themselves. Since it does not require any bait, this trap is best suited for species of turtles that like to openly sun themselves.
RATE OF APPLICATION: Like most live traps, the more installed the faster you will be able to trap out target animals.
