The trap works like a charm!

May 19, 2023

Thank you for making a quality product! we received the trap in perfect condition, and we pre-baited the trapping area with white millet for a few days. we then put the trap out, and nothing for two days but the sparrows were hopping allover getting used to it. We then trapped 11 in one day and 5 the next. We then trapped a 13 lined ground squirrel who was a little miffed at being in there. We let him go, and we also trapped a Harris’ sparrow ad a white crowned sparrow and both of them were released as well.

Here’s the Squirrel in the picture, and he’s not happy!

Works almost too well

May 15, 2023

I would never have decided to eliminate the numerous house sparrows if they hadn’t ganged up on and killed a nesting robin. There was no shortage of food or nest space, so it was just aggressive for no reason at all.

The trap sat for about a week with no sparrows and then they came pouring in at the rate of 4 or 5 a day, every day for the last three days. I don’t like killing things, at all. I am starting to wish it were less effective. I caught only one other bird (a song sparrow), and let it go. The rest-well, it’s depressing but I think it has to be done.

Awesome!

So happy I found this! I have been battling house sparrows since they found our bluebird house about 4 years ago. We have lost countless eggs, baby bluebirds and chickadees while I tried all of the other methods. This year we even had a chickadee killed in the house.

It took a few weeks as mentioned in the instructions. But so far we have caught 10 house sparrows in the first month. Thank you!

Incredibly Well Made

Arrived VERY quickly and was incredibly well made and easy to assemble. I cannot thank you enough for the speed in which this was received, I am so grateful for having this since house sparrows just arrived this year. I know this will last for many years and I will share your website with all my bird nerd friends.

This trap works well. The picture I am providing explains for the rating.

This is your trap.

It takes a couple days but it works. Once you catch one house sparrow more will follow. Especially if you get a female. I have caught 70 over the last 2 months and disposed of 49. It takes some practice helping native songbirds find their way out so I have clumsily let go a few sparrows along the way. I have also caught two starlings.

This trap is well built and strong. It has been buried by heavy snow falling off the roof line, fending off multiple neighborhood cats and survived being carried and dropped 5 yards by a pair of Cooper’s Hawks.

If you live in a more residential area with nosy neighbors who think they are concerned with birds, hide the cage out of plain site. I have found it works better not directly near my feeders anyway.

Again, check the cage regularly. Native sparrows, Titmice, Cardinals and Juncos find their way in. And closely double check the birds if they get wet because then they all look the same looking from the window.

Easy to use and successful trap!

March 13, 2023

We have lived in our house for 6 years. I love songbirds and there were plenty to feed. But as the years went by we saw less and less songbirds and more HOSP. It was time to remove the HOSP. We set the trap and on day 2 we caught 3 birds. It’s day 8 and we have caught 36 so far! I never knew how mean the HOSP were until I’ve had to deal with them close up now. They are so cruel, even to each other. Setting the trap has definitely made a difference in our backyard, but it’s still a work in progress. We’ve caught a Curved Bill Thrasher twice and it was easy to open the door and let him out. We followed the directions setting up the trap and it works flawlessly! Thank you!!

Works Great!

Tried other traps that didn’t work, but this one does. Bought this trap in 2016 and have trapped over 500 house sparrows since. I usually use a little bread for bait and the sparrows do the rest. Just follow the directions. I seem to see more and more native birds in my yard since I started using this trap. I trap pretty much year round, except when snow is expected. The trap has held up very well going on 7 years.

This sparrow trap really works!

November 2, 2022

I have caught almost 400 sparrows in a year in my yard with this repeating trap. I got it after seeing the horrible carnage that sparrows inflicted on some baby robins that had just fledged. I had noticed that the number of sparrows were increasing at an alarming rate. and they were going through massive amounts of bird seed, as well driving away all the other birds. Since the number of them that come every day is now down to about 30, the other birds are coming back. I hope after I have caught the remaining sparrows, a new flock doesn’t show up. My biggest concern is figuring out when they are nesting, since I don’t want to catch the parent birds and leave the babies to starve in the nest.

84 sparrows in the first 3 weeks.

August 29, 2022

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.
