The Wire Larsen Trap Cage by Pest Stop is a safe, easy and humane way to catch magpies or other types of crow. Hated by farmers, magpies are notorious for pecking at the eyes of the young or sick livestock and fresh branding wounds resulting in suffering and added expense.
By using a traditional method of bait, the Larsen Magpie trap requires a live 'call-bird' to act as a decoy to lure them in. The decoy bird is placed within the largest area of the cage, the magpie or small crow enters from the top of the cage and then lands on the perch which releases the catch and closes the door humanely trapping it within.
Please Note: In The UK it is illegal to use a Larsen trap to catch other species of birds - Any unintended birds must be released immediately.
Care of the Decoy Bird: It is vitally important that the decoy bird is watered, fed and sheltered each day until the intended pest bird is captured.
