BMI BODYGRIP TRAPS, SPRING TRAPS, ARTIFICIAL TUNNELS
Animal trapping is an emotive subject. All trappers, be they pest controllers, gamekeepers or estate managers, must ensure their operations are carried out in strict accordance with current legal spring traps guidelines. Today's society has little room for gratuitous, avoidable cruelty, especially where wildlife is concerned.
BMI 'Bodygrip' MAGNUM traps are the end result of many years continuous development. Lightweight and compact, a box containing twelve #110 size traps measures only 18Omm x 18Omm x 23Omm and weighs a mere 10lbs. The design suits a wide variety of pest control situations. It is widely accepted in the USA that the MAGNUM series are the fastest humane killing production 'Bodygrip' traps. The word "Magnum" in this context relates to the shape of the killing bars which incorporate a magnum bend.
BMI Bodygrip traps feature a four way trigger which fires the trap when an animal pushes the trigger from any direction, including the side. The shape of the flexible trigger wires can be simply changed, altering the strike area to suit individual circumstances. The more experienced in their use you become the more you will see their potential.
Ministry approval for use in the UK was granted in September 1995. The #55 is approved for mice and rats; the #110 for mice, rat, weasel, stoat and grey squirrel and the #116 for these plus rabbit and mink.
All spring traps in the UK must be set within natural or artificial tunnels, properly positioned and shielded against non-target species. We think spring traps should be checked twice a day for maximum effectiveness. The side spring system of the 'Bodygrip' trap means you can see if it has fired without approaching too close and possibly disturbing the 'set'.
