TRAP DESCRIPTION: Bodygrip Traps are square, heavy steel traps which have two springs designed to hold strong animals. These springs are in the shape of a “V” and when set, compress the tops of each “V” together. There is a safety latch on each “V” so that once compressed, you can latch it to hold it safely set. Once both “V”‘s are compressed, you set the key into the groove of the trigger. Now, place the trap where you want to make the set. Once in place, the safety latches are released and the Bodygrip is ready for it’s target animal. Because of the strength required to compress these “V” springs, it is generally suggested that you get a pair of Setters for making the set. These will give you much needed leverage so the act of compressing the springs will be easier. This trap will kill target animals quickly and can have quite an impact on local nuisance wildlife when installed properly.
WHERE TO USE IT: Bodygrip traps can be set many different ways. The key to a good set is having the trap placed in the path of the target animal so it must attempt to pass through the trap. Such locations include holes in fences, deck trellis, crawl spaces or sheds. Funneling can also be used for armadillo when you know they are active in a certain area. Use 2×4’s or other landscape timbers to create a bottleneck funnel which will force the target animal to pass through your set. These types are so effective you can get fast and easy control of local problems with hits happening every night.
RATE OF APPLICATION: This will vary from job to job. Generally, the more traps employed, the quicker you catch your target animals. Although you can start with only one, it is suggested that you use 2-3 where you can and more if you have ten or more nuisance animals being targeted.
