Which squirrel trap; kill or live catch? Choose from powerful humane killing traps or robust professional cage traps. Releasing squirrels into another area is illegal and may spread diseases. The tree mounted Procull squirrel trap is an approved humane dispatch trap made in Britain. It has been designed with both the novice and professional trapper in mind who may be concerned about their ability to quickly and humanely dispatch these animals. The Kania 2000 has a very strong spring and it is safe for the trapper to set, Approved Fenn traps may also be considered.
In areas where the protected native red squirrels are present, a humane live catch cage trap must be used if grey squirrels are a problem.
