The Most Versatile Beaver Trap !

A few nights ago I arrived at a nuisance beaver location close to dark and found the six foot culvert better than half plugged, as expected, not unusual by any stretch.  I had asked the highway department to pull out some of what had been a dam nearly six feet high. ...

Baited Trail Sets using the Comstock Double Door Cage Trap

Positive sets and trail sets are the way to go in many, if not most circumstances for woodchucks and skunks as well as other creatures.  It is what we rely on easily more than 95% of the time.  In the 80’s we made the switch from dirt hole sets to trail sets for...

The professional or weekend trapper will be equally impressed with the quality and performance of Comstock Traps. ”  David Strickland

Comstock traps are a cut above. Well made, great design, and very consistent. They make the hard to catch animals much easier to catch. The walk through pan-less design has a lot less refusals. You can’t afford not to have Comstock in your lineup.”      Nelson_from_Maine

The Comstock Custom Cage Traps are the very best, professionally engineered and made by a trapper who understands the animals the cage will catch and the people who will use them. The traps are safe and easy to set, maintenance free, and made from the best materials available. I own and use a large number and variety of Comstock Traps. My main trapping activity is for beaver, otter, and bobcat. Jim and Judy have facilitated and provided me with special “one time” production traps. At 82 years of age, the Comstock traps are easy for me to carry and allow me to quickly remove my traps from the streams and ditches, plus be able to quickly remove my catches…..Jim and Judy provide prompt service. They are good listeners, have great communication skills, and their traps and concepts have advanced humane trapping.”  Fred Lawrence, WA 11/15/16

As a Nuisance Wildlife Control professional in Suffolk county NY I find the ingenuity of the designs second to none. I will continue to use these traps as my business grows.”  J. Jordan  2/2/17

One of the best cage makers I’ve ever interacted with. Jim and Judy have been wonderful about anything needed or adjusted. They can make small parts or adaptors on the fly too!  Jonathan Munsterman, Washington State  1/2018

Jim – “Your traps are the most innovative trap used in the wildlife control industry. For raccoon removal, they provide such a variety of setups to capture trap-shy raccoons. Many of the member companies on the utilize your traps for success. Keep up the good work! ”  Dave Kugler, 4/7/2018

Comstock cages have changed the way I do business. One of the best things to be introduced into our industry. Absolutely revolutionary! Any trap that I can mount horizontal, sideways and even vertical gets an “A+” in my book. Positive control sets have never been so easy. No more tripped cages with no animal inside. No coon breaking out of cages. I figure out new uses for them every day! I now own over 20 coon size cages, several squirrel cages, a beaver trap, a chimney trap (which has many other uses in tight spots) and I’m working on increasing my inventory of them this year! This is one purchase you won’t regret. The only problem you’ll have is trying not to order more!   Rob W.   Ohio  2/15/17

Success with the 3x5x26 Swing Panel Series on chipmunks !


Purchased your 3x5 and 5x5 traps with nose cones for a Chipmunk problem. These traps are unbelievable chipmunk catchers.  For two years I have struggled with other manufacturers traps with little success. Saw the first golf ball size hole going under my heated barn. Snuggle the nose cone over the hole and stabilize it with some gravel on the sides.  I inserted the trap with the swing panel trigger. In 3 days I have caught 4 chipmunk in the same spot. Thanks for a great product.    Todd Vance

New Comstock Cage purchase success !

I recently purchased a spring loaded cage to catch a Raccoon that was spending more time on my deck than me. I used a basic cage with gravity doors and was unsuccessful for a month. I purchased the Comstock cage and the first night i caught the bandit. I decided to set it the second night and caught #2. The third night and #3. This was a great purchase and has produced 100%. The only problem with this cage is it has eliminated the challenge and frustration. Guess what, i can live with that.  My next purchase will be a squirrel cage, because with the conventional cage they seem to never produce. Thanks Comstock!  May 30,2019
