Funnel Traps Order Form


Funnel traps are particularly useful in catching snakes, pygopods, fast-moving widely-foraging skinks and reptiles that climb out of pit-traps (Thompson and Thompson 2009). Funnel traps are mostly installed along flywire or shade cloth drift fences, often in conjunction with pit-traps that are dug into the ground. Animals caught in funnel traps are exposed to solar radiation so they should have shade covers. We have found shade cloth covers with wooded battens to hold them in place to be effective. The shade cloth does not completely enclose the trap which is important as airflow is necessary to keep trap temperatures cool. In warm conditions, we typically use two shade covers. Shade covers are most often clipped to the drift fence to avoid them coming adrift.

We have listened to our customers and our new funnel traps have stronger and more robust zips and are made of quality shade cloth that is easy to see through.

Funnel traps are sold in cartons of 25. The cost is $A500 (ex GST) per carton plus courier costs. Courier costs for overseas deliveries vary. Please contact us for a price if ordering from outside Australia.

Cartons are 41cm x 41cm x 31cm and weigh 12kg. Funnel traps are 18cm x 18cm x 79cm.
