The Tomahawk Small Snake Trap with Extension Wings - Model 460 is a small trap that works as a funneling system to help capture snake effectively. It features a funnel opening measuring 1 1/2 in. diameter which can be adjusted to make it tighter. It comes with a powder coat finish to put additional heat to the trap to make it more inviting to snakes. It also has two 24 inches wings which can be positioned to the sides to direct the snakes easier into the trap. The back door is detachable for easy release, and it has a hand guard to help protect you from snake bites when removing the rear door lock. This trap is ideal to use when relocating snakes. The product weighs 5.5 lbs. when assembled with wire mesh that measures 1/2 x 1 - 16GA.
I have not caught the snake living in our box bushes yet but once he is caught this trap seems like it will be easy to relocate him. It looks just as pictured. I'd imagine bait may help with the catching efforts on my part but otherwise happy with the purchase.
What type of bait do you use in the Tomahawk Small Snake Trap with Extension Wings - Model 460?
Since snakes only eat live prey there really isn’t a way to use a live bait in the trap as it could escape. The Tomahawk Small Snake Trap with Extension Wings - Model 460 has features that make it attractive to snakes on its own. Just be sure to place it along a wall or the edge of a garden.
