Who uses them? What brand is best. Do's and don'ts. Size box, etc.
Just one more thing in the arsenal bag to use at certain times.
Thank you for any help.

Iíve used BMI 115s successfully for squirrels. I mounted them on running poles made with saplings or boards, stabilized using coni brackets.


I also used and preferred snares. High quality, 3/64 or 1/16Ē snares followed by a swivel and a short extension, also set on running poles.

I'll use a #55 very rarely when a tube won't work. If I suspect only adult squirrels I will attach one to the end of an excluder to get the first squirrel coming out, tubes will get the rest.

If youíre setting holes, those round bodygrips with the mounting bracket look great. Not sure if thatís something you can use.


I was catching them at fruit trees

I used Conibears for squirrels when I first started in business. Customers and their neighbors don't really enjoy seeing dead squirrels swaying in the breeze. I use only cages now and not only do the people like them better, but so do the squirrels!

In winter-Waxed 120 in a screened box with meat for bait.
Have to use some sort of exclusion hole on front of box if there are domestics around.

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.
