How to Make Traps for Small Animals – One of the Easiest Traps to Build

This is a box trap with glass sides and back, the panes of glass being held in place by brads placed on both sides.
The animal does not fear to enter the box, because he can see through it: when he enters, however, and touches the bait the lid is released and, dropping, shuts him in.
This is one of the easiest traps to build and is usually successful.
