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.
Step 1: The materials
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
