This DIY Live Trap Can Catch Squirrels and Other Varmints

Live traps can be expensive, so why not make one and save some cash?

A live trap can be handy for many uses. Catching a squirrel that is stuck in your barn or using it on the raccoons that stole your peanut butter dispenser.

So if you’re looking to fill some time or have some wood lying around, check out the video below to build your own live trap.

Simple, cheap, and easy. Just take your time as there is some guess work and tuning involved in the trigger action.

As the video suggests build it bigger for bigger critters. I’m doubling the size suggested in the video to take on raccoons, as spring is right around the corner and I don’t want any trash pandas eating turkey eggs or poults.

The only downside to this trap is the fact that dispatching whatever you caught might get tricky.
