It is well known that squirrels are attracted to bird feeders and this device exploits the squirrels’ natural ability to descend and feed whilst upside down. The trap dimensions are W225mm x H355mm X D225mm

How To Use

  1. The Elgeeco is set up off the ground on a tree trunk, the side of a fence or building. It is the law that a trap must be inspected at least once a day and always before nightfall.
  2. Fix securely so it doesn’t swing or rotate. Do not suspend from a tree branch.
  3. The back of the trap and feeder must be up against the support otherwise the feeder may be accessible to squirrels from outside the trap.
  4. Half fill the feeder with fresh bait such as peanuts and renew regularly. Any birds using the feeder will attract squirrels.
  5. Suspend the feeder inside the cage so it hangs centrally within the space provided by the treadle.
  6. The top entrance door is held open by sliding the upper end of the trigger rod through the ring on the door.
  7. It is the law that once a squirrel is trapped it must be removed as quickly as possible and despatched to prevent stress.
  8. Grey squirrels become very agitated when approached by humans so cover the cage immediately to reduce distress.
  9. It is illegal to release or allow a grey squirrel to escape once captured.
