Animal Trap Tips

Sparrow Trap

Open the top lid containing the funnel, feed the birds for a few days with the lid open, to get them used to entering and leaving the trap. After the second or third day, close the lid and the sparrows should go right in having been used to eating there. Once the sparrow gets in the trap, leave it to flutter around, as it will attract others to follow.
During the spring time, when they are building their nests, tear apart the nest and place the feathers and strings in the trap to help attract them as well.
