Assembling the Live Animal Trap:

Instructions to assemble the Pestrol Live Animal Trap.

The trap arrives folded flat, using the below instructions it can be easily folded into position and ready to use.

  • Cable ties need to be cut so that possum trap can be expanded open.
  • On holding the possum trap by the top handle, slowly pull up the trap allowing it to fall in place. Make sure both doors on either side are pushed down.
  • Pull down the two sets of ‘U’ shaped support arms and fix them into the fixing clips located on each side of the trap. If you find the support arms do not stay firmly in the fixing clips, use your fingers or pliers to squeeze the fixing clips closed to secure the support arms.
  • The traps should now be ready to connect the trap floor to the footplate.
  • The curled bottom end of the Trip Plate Rod should be connected to the Trip Plate.

Tips and tricks:

  • Place the trap on a flat even surface. If possible place the trap against a wall or building or in a path commonly used by the animal.
  • The trap can be baited by opening the rear door and placing food about 2-3cm from the rear door. Do not place bait on the trip plate. Place the bait in a position that will force the animal to step on the Trip Plate.
  • It is often beneficial to camouflage the trap with materials normally found in the trapping area such as vegetation, sackcloth, boxes etc. If camouflaging/hiding the trap ensure materials do not interfere with the operation of the trap parts.
  • Check the trap regularly to ensure trapped animals are in good condition.
  • Choosing bait: Possums eat a variety of different food such as rodents, insects, worms, etc, however, they also like canned pet food, apples, bananas, and even bread are our recommendations for the best possum bait. So, go for anything you have in your kitchen pantry and you will certainly get great results.

  4. Actually, bought the trap to catch rabbits and relocate them because my wife didn’t want them shot. But it’s not working, so it’s likely to be plan ‘B’ and you know what that means!!

  5. Good value, prompt delivery !
    Definitely needs attention to manufacturing assembly, folded tabs protruding, causes injury to animal.
