Funnel Traps are particularly useful in catching snakes, pygopods, fast-moving widely-foraging skinks and reptiles that climb out of pit-traps. Funnel Traps are mostly installed along flywire or shade cloth drift fences, often in conjunction with pit-traps that are dug into the ground. Animals caught in Funnel Traps are exposed to solar radiation so they should have shade covers. Shade cloth covers with wooded battens to hold them in place are effective. The shade cloth does not completely enclose the trap which is important as airflow is necessary to keep trap temperatures cool. In warm conditions, typically two shade covers are used. Shade covers are most often clipped to the drift fence to avoid them coming adrift.
This new and improved version of these Funnel Traps has stronger and more robust zips and is made of quality shade cloth that is easy to see through.
Funnel Traps are 18cm x 18cm x 79cm and are available in singles. (For quantities of 25 or more please contact us direct as discounts may apply for bulk purchases.)
