  1. KORO introduced a new webpage over the summer... they introduced some new traps. A new weasel trap was for sale... with a longer, stronger pan... and a nut washer as a possible mounting device? As for re-test and re-pass... have not a clue. On-the-other-hand, are the WCS tube traps the same on both sides of the pond? I was under the impression the UK version has a stronger faster kill bar.
  2. Much to my chagrin, KORO's rodent trap is being redesigned. A video, on KORO's facebook page, demonstrates the new design. A larger pan and trigger that actually stays in one place. Well, worth the time to track down. KORO TRAPS Cooks Creek, MB - looks as if they might have looked at negative feedback in this forum. Who's to say.
  3. Elgeeco's Procull humane dispatch squirrel trap...Britain's best kept secret on the war against invasive Eastern Gray Squirrel.
  4. New Zealand's Department of Conservation(DOC) 150 trap. Very powerful...extremely well built and engineered. Could not get the right mitre cut for a ramp jump rail, settled on steps.
  5. Box based on James Linari-Linholm of JLL Pest Control, Gloucestershire. Found in John Bryan's "Traps & More Trap Making" Step by Step. Fourteenarce Ltd.
  6. Any suggestions in the the design of artificial tunnels for the use of DOC traps? i.e. types of baffles... duel entrances vs. single entrance... traps bolted or not bolted on... ramps to pan plate, etc. etc. Thanks!
  7. This is OUELL RM trap. Used for muskrats...nethertheless, it has proven itself highly effective in the dispatch of grey squirrels. These photo are of the RM set with the safety on. It is shown without it's artificial cedar tunnel.
  8. Elgeeco's Procull squirrel trap. Very well designed and engineered!
  9. This trap was introduced by Jordan Budenski around 2014. Extremely powerful trap... I put rubber bumpers at the end of the channels to protect the kill bar from damaging the metal. The only down side there is not a saftey. First known as a the Rat Cracker... now called a Rodent Tank. In some circles, it is referred to as a "Hell Box".
  10. According to the Certifié Québec and Trap Certification de Piége Canada. Ouell trap's entrance is 3 1/2 inches(90mm) wide and 3 inches(77mm) high. AIHTS # QAI Ouell's web page listed the 411 trap as being 2.4 lbs... and 11in x is 6in x 5in. "Pull up lever (2 levels alternative) and hook the security bracket"= Ouell webpage. I have come to the conclusion, the second kill bar is used to pull back the striking bar. As for 2 levels of striking, that still reminds undetermined. Maybe Ouell's webpage can shed some light on this function. Yes, the Ouell trap has a convenient back door, for placing the bait. $52.95 Canadian dollars. Great trap! Kania trap is $89 Canadian dollars.
  11. Ouell has risen the bar. 411 is equally effective in the destruction of grey squirrels, weasels, stoats, rats and similar vermin. Strong construction, galvanized, very light and easy to set. It will kill outright. Officially approved... Certifié Québec. If approved by UK standards, 411 would compete against Kania 2000 and Elgeeco's Procull in reducing the UK's grey squirrel population.
  12. The KORO traps provided by PERDIX are finished with olive drab zinc electroplating. This is not the case in North America... this KORO was spray painted to prevent rusting and provide camouflage. This process of zinc electroplating may result in the higher cost of the trap in the UK.
  13. Thanks for all the responses. Yes, the KORO trap has some flaws. The most obvious is the positioning of the trap dog. To avoid the dog from flying up and hitting the squirrel, causing a miss catch, this squirrel was conditioned to bait placed on and under the right side of the trap pan. That is why the corner strike. The pan size itself is rather small for this trap.
  14. The KORO 'large rodent trap' double coil spring snap trap. AIHTS approved. Trap was positioned that squirrel entered from front and set within an artificial blind tunnel. KORO traps strike hard and fast!
