• New Line of Double Powered Door, Swing Panel, Panless, Cage Traps in Action Currently the skunk traps are 6x8x30 and 7x7x36, both working as they should.  It is possible that the 7×7 could be made a bit shorter, perhaps the squirrel traps also because when the door drops and hits the animals behind the shoulder […]

  • REALEASING ANIMALS

    RELEASING ANIMALS An easy way to keep a door open is simply to open the door and put a stick or rod cross wise through the cage wire, horizontally.  This will hold the door open.  If you need to keep an animal from exiting prematurely, you could put rods vertically through the cage to hold […]

  • In a short while we will have a double powered door squirrel trap, 5x5x24, with a versatile new push through trigger never before seen in a small trap.  To follow, 6×6 and 7×7 for fox squirrels and skunks, perhaps a 7 or 8×10 for rabbits.  Each of these traps will have powered doors but will […]

  • Update on numbers, statistics for perspective As of this week I have personally taken 268 beaver in the swim through 12x18x39 wire triggered, powered door cage traps in my own ADC business, which puts me squarely in second place.  A trapper in Massachusetts  has now taken over 600 beaver in two seasons, 400 and 200, […]

  • Species Specific Beaver Trap As is, the 12x18x39 Comstock swim through beaver cage trap will take beavers, otters and muskrats. Beavers may be taken alive when the Comstock beaver traps are set slightly out of water, an inch or two above the surface.  This, of course, means that all non-targeted species will also be alive […]
