The trap mechanism involves a spring door to each catching compartment which, when set, is held open by a split perch. To enter the trap, birds the size of a magpie or crow inevitably drop onto the perch. The perch gives way, and the bird’s momentum takes it past the bottom of the door, which flips up.
Magpie Larsen Traps are live-catch traps. Why catch alive? Because of the risk of catching other birds. Virtually all such non-target birds are protected by law.
Because Magpie Larsen traps are small, they can easily be moved around. Traps can be moved to deal with specific pairs of magpies, and a few traps can therefore cover quite a large area.
You might want to get some Metal Securing Pins to secure the trap to the ground.
