There are many different makes and models of cage trap. This easy to set STV076 is a robust spring loaded metal cage trap into which the squirrel enters, lured in by food. And is ideal for indoor and outdoor use.
Near the back of the cage is a trip pan, so when the squirrel steps on the pan, it triggers the trap door shut, and the animal is trapped inside, alive. Some other traps are made from different materials, such as solid-walled plastic or other materials. STV076 is made from steel bars.
This STV cage trap is large enough to hold the squirrel, and most squirrel-size cage traps are at least 16-inches long and 5-inches high and wide. If its too small, the animal wont fit inside, or may trigger the trip pan, but not allow clearance for the door to shut all the way aiding the squirrels escape. If its too large, the squirrel may run around and smash itself against the cage walls and hurt itself.
