The Longworth trap was invented in 1949 and is celebrating over 70 years of service. The most widely used and respected small mammal trap in use in Europe designed to trap small mammals with the minimum discomfort to the trapped animal. 

The trap consists of two parts; 

A tunnel which contains the door tripping mechanism.

A nest box which is attached to the back of the tunnel.

The nest box provides a large space for food and bedding material. When in use it is positioned at an upward angle to the trap tunnel to prevent rain entering the nest box and to provide drainage of urine or condensation.

When the trap is not in use the tunnel can be conveniently placed inside the nest box for easy carriage or storage
