The Budget Trap is cylindrical in shape.  The Johnson Trap is also cylindrical but with a wider top than bottom ring to increase the trap volume.  Four tape-loop hanging points are provided for stability (clips and stand shown in photographs not included). All traps have a full length double-slider zip for easy photography, and removal or release of specimens.  A black PVC landing platform, cords, and cord-locks (allowing the gap between cage and platform to be quickly and easily adjusted) are included with all traps except for the Super Economy.


The Budget Trap is available in either black or white nylon, with a white lid to encourage upward flight.  The Johnson Trap is only available in black, again with a white lid. Extending from the bottom ring of the Johnson is a short skirt which can be easily raised to change the bait without disturbing the top section of the trap; when the landing platform is not attached this allows the Johnson to be converted into an enclosed hanging cage. 


The Super Economy Trap is identical in design to the Budget Trap but the landing platform, cords, and cord-locks are not included in your purchase.  When buying this option, you will only receive the net cylinder part of the trap. This makes this trap a great option for those replacing an existing trap, or for anyone wishing to make their own platform.


A removable clear colourless PVC rain-cover is available.
