There are many different ways that you can go about building a snake trap and the method that you ultimately choose will likely depend on what materials you have on hand and what kind of snake you’re trying to catch. In this blog post we’ll explore a few different ways to build a snake trap so that you can choose the method that’s right for you.
One of the simplest ways to build a snake trap is to use a piece of wood or cardboard as a ramp. Place the ramp against a wall or other surface so that one end is raised higher than the other. Then place a bucket or container at the base of the ramp with the opening facing up. When a snake comes down the ramp it will fall into the bucket and be unable to escape.
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution you can build a snake trap out of wire mesh. Cut a piece of mesh that’s large enough to cover the opening of a container and then secure the mesh over the top of the container with wire or zip ties. Make sure that the mesh is tight enough so that snakes can’t squeeze through the gaps. You can baited the trap with food or live prey to attract snakes.
Another option is to build a pit trap. Dig a hole that’s large enough and deep enough to fit the container you’re using. Line the sides of the hole with something that will help the snake climb out like a piece of wood or a rope. Place the container in the hole and bait it with food or live prey. When a snake goes into the container to get the bait it won’t be able to escape the pit.
Whichever method you choose make sure that the container you’re using is secure so that snakes can’t escape. And be careful when handling snakes even if they are in a trap.
