The BioEcoSS TubeTrap

The BioEcoSS TubeTrap is a radical new design of small mammal trap. It has been developed to provide a simple, robust and cost-effective trap for use by research organisations, conservation groups, universities and schools. The trap has been trialled extensively, which shows that capture rates are comparable to, or better than, existing traps. It has many unique design features which make it the ideal choice for both small surveys and large research projects. Check out these features here.


1st January 2020 – New Website and On-line Shop

The start of a new decade brings a new look to the BioEcoSS TubeTrap website. The background to the development of TubeTraps and other features of interest are largely the same. However, the new on-line shop allows you to view details of all products including photographs and specifications. You can then select these into a shopping basket from which you can generate an order.

The other major change to the website is that you now need an account to generate an order. If you have previously purchased TubeTrap products directly from BioEcoSS Ltd., an account will have been generated for you automatically. You should have received an email indicating the user name and password to access your account, but if you don't have these details, please contact us here.

1st August 2019 – Results of User Questionnaire

Many thanks to all of you who completed the on-line questionnaire that I sent out several months ago. The response was fantastic, with 42 responses from about 160 valid invitations – over 25%! These have enabled me to plan future developments, in particular, the production of new metal springs. Watch this space!

1st January 2018 – Trap Sales Have Come Back In-house

BioEcoSS Ltd. is pleased to announce that it is now the sole retailer of the TubeTrap. This has allowed prices to be reduced considerably from the previous retail prices and a more personalised sales service. From 26th January 2018 all existing and new customers can use the Online Order Form to send an order directly to BioEcoSS Ltd.
