BMI Magnum Body Grip Trap - Fineren

Insufficient stock


This specially designed bodygrip box was developed by Dave Fineren to support his work controlling grey squirrels in Cornwall.  A full time trapper employed by the Cornwall Red Squirrel Project, Dave was looking for a simple, effective and safe way to use the BMI  Magnum traps which are a very effective and humane killing trap for squirrels. Trapping mostly in woodlands Dave was particularly looking for a trap housing solution which would, as much as possible, prevent accidental catches of birds and other non-target species.

After months of refinement and testing in the field we are very pleased to be able to offer these boxes to a wider audience.

The Fineren Squirrel Box fulfills the two essential requirements for use with bodygrip traps; they support the trap to hold it in the correct position and also exclude any non target animals from the trapping area.  Access to the trap is through a double, offset baffle which means that a squirrel has to get right inside the trap before triggers the trap.  Most birds don’t like going down into holes and usually won’t go further than the top chamber if they enter at all.

The box screws closed making it safe from casual interference and can be mounted to a tree, fence, pole or other surface – either horizontally or vertically.

Assembled from a marine grade plywood with all joints glued and pinned, these boxes can be used straight away but we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that the boxed are treated a with a wood preservative before use and at regular intervals.

Currently shipping with a choice of BMI Magnum trap.

We strongly recommend the use of a Fineren Bodygrip Safety Clip with these boxes.

As mentioned in the CLA Land & Business Magazine Aug 2017


From 1st April 2020 the BMI traps areno longer approved for stoat in the UK.  Where stoats are known to be present, or likely to be caught, an AIHTS compliant trap should be used. As the law is currently unclear about accidental stoat catches, anyone setting a trap must do their own risk assessment.

    These are the best thing for domestic squirrel jobs or where the public are. They look enough like bird houses that people/neighbours don’t give them a second look and they are very effective. Because of the spring sticking out you can see them from a fair distance off too, which makes checking traps much easier.

    In 2016 I called John at fourteenacre about updating our existing trap set up for Grey squirrels over 503 Ha of mixed hardwood and conifer woodland i manage, some of which also has public access. He strongly advised to move away from the fenn traps we had been using in wire or ply boxes attached to trees, we were seeing some bi-catch with the fenn and this is something we were keen to reduce.
    We brought 30 BMI Bodygrip traps and Fineren ply boxes from John, which turned up ready to go straight to work. Within days we were catching squirrels in them, I am suitably pleased with the traps clean killing ability, but the Fineren box is a cracking design as it very rarely has any evidence that it has a dead squirrel in it, to the untrained eye it must look like a bird box. You can also look from the truck at a rideside to see if the Trap has been sprung thus saving time on checking your traps. The build quality is high and the boxes are lasting well over the years with coats of preservative each year.
    All in fourteenAcre cracking company to deal with with superb advice from John.
