For one reason or another I have found myself in need of a easy live trap for various small animals. This includes furry garden invaders, escaped pets, unwanted attic inhabitants and perhaps the holiday being know as the easter bunny.
The dimensions of the the cut pieces are below.
(2) 0.75"x6"x16" SIDE
(2) 0.75"X8"X16" TOP/BOTTOM
(1) 0.75"X6"X6" DOOR
(1) 0.75"X8"X8" BACK
I would recommend using treated lumber (fence planks are rough and cheap).
I used plywood that I had left over in my garage, I don't recommend it. (Nailing into the end of plywood is a real pain).
- Fish line, paracord, wire,
-Really any thin strong line with little stretch,
-Small nails or wood screws-
1.25" long should be fine
I reused a hinge from an amorie door, I spring loaded self closing hinge would be a good revision on this part.
any kind of elastic could work for this
