The humane snake trap is made of durable plastic however it is light in weight so if you intend on trapping outdoors it is best to set it up on a calm day. The best way to achieve positive results from the trap s to watch for snakes, note their location and then set the trap close to where you have viewed the snake. The trap is baited with the scent of a rodent and the interior of the trap has a glue board. When the snake enters the trap chamber it loses mobility and is not able to exit the trap.
