Kania 2000 Trap
The Kania 2000 Trap for Squirrels & Mink was originally developed in Canada for the fur trade, was approved for use in the UK from 1st March 1993 against mink, grey squirrel, stoat, weasel, rats and mice.
The Kania 2000 Trap is a self contained unit which allows the trapper an instant set and is widely considered one of the safest setting and most humane traps in the world today. This is a selective trap, very suitable for use by pest controllers in a wide variety of situations and locations. The perfect grey squirrel trap to use in loft spaces, baited with peanuts, peanut butter or whatever your favorite attractant happens to be.
When making a set in a tree or on the side of a building, perhaps as a “grey squirrel trap”, drive two nails in and suspend the trap by the hanging loops provided. Ensure the trap is securely fixed and will not wobble when entered. Do not bend the nails over or use staples, remember that the trap needs to be easily taken down to remove a catch and reset.
When used to trap mink, set the trap in a suitable location, preferably near water, showing signs of mink visits. Place sand or dirt on the floor of the trap to act as a camouflage as well as providing a more attractive walking surface for the intended target. Place bait from the trigger side so that it is in front of the screen and scatter some feathers, preferably light colored ones, around and in the trap to act as a sight attractant. The trap should then be pegged to the ground, perhaps using skewer type tent pegs through the hanging loops, and then covered and the entrance protected using at hand materials such as brash, bracken, grass etc. The Kania Trap is ideal as a mink trap because its powerful spring makes it humane.
This trap can be set in an instant and will kill in an instant, even when used by an inexperienced operative. Always ensure traps are set legally and correctly, properly protected and beyond the reach of non-target species. Always check set traps at least once a day.
