84 sparrows in the first 3 weeks.

I have had this trap set up for 3 weeks now and have already trapped 84 house sparrows. This has made such a wonderful difference at my backyard bird feeders. Before the sparrows would empty my feeders in a single day and discourage other birds from visiting. Now we are getting song birds daily that previously we would rarely see at our feeders.

7 sparrows in 2 days! Dream come true. Probably about 15 more.

I was able to take the netting off all brocolli, kale, cauliflower, brussel sprout, and cabbage plants. Trapped over 70 sparrows. I quit counting. Most were trapped in an unbaited trap set by where the sparrows liked to dust bath. The initial flock was about 40 birds. There was a lull in trapping of about a week. I was only seeing less than 6 birds at a time. Then another flock moved in. I had to move the trap because the squash vines overtook the bathing area. I did buy some white millet seeds and baited the trap. Thank you for a great product. Saved my vegies from being destroyed by the city sparrows. Might even try to grow peas again next year.

Hi Blaine,

Wanted to thank you for making these! This is my third season trapping. Took a bit of time to create a HOSP free zone or ‘black hole’ and it has been largely successful. Finally some peace and quiet and ability to use my own garden or get some sleep. However, I recently engaged another mega flock…

Couldn’t clear the box out fast enough, blew past my record of 10 to 15 and then a whopping TWENTY in one box a few days ago. There was no way to keep up.

Thankfully, I’d already ordered a second, which arrived two days ago, got it modified and set up yesterday… stacked on top of the older one… transferred some bait birds to it and seeded it…

WOW! Within 5 minutes, our first customers. Within 10 minutes, someone figured out how to use the elevator down to the First Class Lounge.

In a single day… I lost count… but know that I removed at least 15 this morning and still have quite a flock between the two boxes…

The efficiency of running two is amazing, seem to be able to get 3x as many, get the attention of the bulls, and be able to acquire and process more of the mega flocks.

Another intended use case is that I can run them in different locations. But for now, Condo Mode seems to be working just fine! It is fun watching multiple on each platform at the same time pushing each other into the elevator.

Thank you again, these do the job brilliantly, and think I’ve gotten a few more while typing this up.

Very satisfied with my purchase

Just wanted to let you know that I am a very satisfied customer. I received the trap on Wednesday… read all of your instructions… set it up this morning and caught 6 house sparrows in the first two hours. Unfortunately I also caught a male cardinal but released him unharmed. Went out and bought millet hoping not to attract any more song birds. Will also use bread.

I’m already feeling like I am getting control back of my feeders. At first I was hesitant to spend the money on the trap, it it was well worth it.

By the way, I humanely dispatched the sparrows and left them for our resident opossum to snack on tonight.

Pre-baiting works

I pre-baited my planned trap location for a few days prior to the arrival of the repeater trap. The location became crowded with sparrows, and I was excited to receive the trap. Trap arrived two days ago and I’ve already caught 19! I can’t believe how well this worked. My native birds send their thanks.

Up to 26, still no bait in the trap. Will need to move it to a new dust bathing spot because the butternut squash vines are covering the bare ground.

Amazing product, averaging 6-8 per day, everyday. I put a basket, feeder on a shepherd hook, above the trap .

Sparrows were waiting in line for their chance at millet.

Hello Blaine,

I just wanted to give you an update on my sparrow-trapping, and you can use this as a review to the public.

I have trapped 32 house sparrows so far this summer, destroyed four sparrow nests, and crushed seven eggs.

I have depleted the flock to the point that I now have a house wren building in one of the bluebird houses, and that is fine with me!

I also have a pair of bluebirds sitting on the telephone line in my front yard. I know that these are all evidence of natives moving in, once the non-natives have been removed.

If anyone wonders about putting the sparrows down, I used the mesh bag method (slamming them on the concrete). If anyone is squeamish like I was about killing, I assure them that it is really not that bad.

The first one was the worst, but after that it was not a big deal. It actually built my confidence and made me feel like a better conservationist. If I can do it, anyone can!

Thank you for a wonderful product!

I have eight bluebird boxes on my property that use to add 20 to 30 young bluebirds a season. However, in the last couple of years, the sparrows have taken over the boxes even though I have placed sparrow guards on the boxes. The worse thing was finding dead bluebirds in the boxes. It was impossible to control the sparrows. However, there is hope. Following your instructions I placed a trap out on Sunday; by Wednesday I have already caught 16 sparrows and not one native species. You have a great product. Thank you.

Thanks. I bought 4 traps from you last spring and trapped over 3000 in 3 months. I gave those traps to a neighbor who’s losing more chicken feed than his chickens can eat. So I need these for me. Great traps!

All that I can say is THANKS……. Martin colony, jays, cards, and native sparrows in North Texas are much happier this year. Have caught 150 plus sparrows since March when I purchased the trap and they keep coming in. an Ingenious design that keeps working 24/7. The darn thing is worth its weight in gold.

I purchased one of your traps back in March and had it out for a while with no results. I put it in my shed out of the rain/bad weather for a few weeks. I’ve since built a covered-platform feeder and have it set out next to the shed. Within a few feet behind it, on half concrete blocks and a piece of plywood, sits the trap. Just today, 4/27/08, I caught two male sparrows. One had gotten caught while I was in the house. The second, I couldn’t believe, was caught when I was working maybe 30 or 40 ft away, covering seedlings for frost warning tonight. There was one bird in the trap when I started, and two when I finished.
