    Good for squirrels but needs to be secured to the ground

    By Phillip on 08/05/2014

    Verified Purchase

    The trap works but it is very light and a squirrel can push it and move it without entering, setting off the trap prematurely. I solved this by getting some tent stakes and staking it in the ground.

    Company and product evaluation

    By Barry on 11/29/2014

    Verified Purchase

    The company is helpful and very responsive. I purchased this same trap B4 and loved it!! I ordered a second , and the Quality was POOR! EVERYWHERE! Poor bends , door didn't shut very well, Trigger mechanism rubs on the side and wasn't very sensitive. I had to rework it. Wire was cut poorly and left many pointed sharp wire prongs. It was not operational as received.The trigger wire attached to the trigger plate was bent too long , forcing the trigger wire into the side of the trap causing it to bind and not go off. POOR QUALITY CONTROL!!!!

    Duke Squirrel Trap

    By Bob on 06/10/2015

    Verified Purchase

    This trap does not work worth a hoot!!! It looks very similar to a trap I bought a few years ago that worked well, but this model is not very sensitive and our yard is overrun with squirrels. The original trap was made of galvanized metal and this one is painted. About the only thing I have caught in this new trap is snails. I tried to give it a zero star rating but apparently this is not allowed.

    Edges Sharp Enough to Cut You

    By Melody on 06/13/2016

    Bought this trap after speaking with the rep on the phone. I got it for my Mom. When I took it to her, boy did I ever get an ear full. Every edge was sharp enough to cut yous skin. Yes, it was painted, but that did not help with the edges. My hubby bought some Plasti-Dip. Guess I'll try to brush it on the ends to make sure Mom doesn't need medical attention after setting the trap. She said the last one she bought had some sort of coating.

    Good trap but needs instructions

    By Jessica on 08/05/2016

    Bought for my grandmother and she said theres no instructions and she cant figure it out. Had to send the husband her way to show her. Maybe there should be instructions for people who have never used a live trap before
