The Freedom Brand 5 in x 5 in x 24 in Muskrat Colony Trap is made primarily because each trap will fit inside the 6 in x 6 in x 24 in Muskrat Colony Trap for transportation and carrying purposes. Like the 6 in x 6 in , the 5 in x 5 in trap is also excellent at catching muskrats. By using 5 in x 5 in colony traps AND 6 in x 6 in colony traps you can carry twice as many traps in your boat, truck, etc. at any given time compared to just using 6 in x 6 in colony traps.
This colony trap is non-collapsing, is constructed of 1 in x2 in 14 gauge wire mesh, and has been dipped dark brown to protect the steel and to reduce animal avoidance.
