Bat Harp Trap - BCM

Product Description

Harp traps are primarily used as a low-maintenance solution for sampling caves, abandoned mines, roosts, and supplementing mist net surveys.

Composed of aluminum and stainless steel hardware, no parts should ever need replacement. Individual locks hold the user's choice of line, and unlike other designs require absolutely no knots. In fact, the entire trap can be strung without cutting the lines apart for the fastest string job available. Each line can be independently tensioned at any time.

These traps are deployed from and completely collapse into a custom super duty field bag in minutes. It is truly a one person setup, without any need for the trap to be tilted just to reach the top. When fully assembled, the top of the Forest Strainer model can reach 12-feet above ground. A telescoping Leg Kit attaches on the bottom of the columns in seconds and can be adjusted in almost every direction for any type of terrain. The Leg Kit is suggested for hibernacula trapping where the ground may be rocky and the trap cannot be hung, or if you plan to trap in rocky stream beds. You can hang or move this trap after setup without the legs or other parts disengaging. The Leg Kit is automatically included with every Forest Strainer, but many biologists do not need legs on the smaller Cave Catcher when hung in front of hibernacula, therefore we offer it separately so folks buy only what is needed for the job. The Leg Kit can be swapped between any 6' or 3' G7 harp trap.

The G7 Harp Trap incorporates mechanically "levered" columns. Simply expand the trap semi-taut, then lever the trap into final tension with a simple push. No other trap in the world offers mechanical advantage tensioning. The G7 lever system is virtually unbreakable and eliminates the struggle to tension the trap.


Our bag is made from heavy-duty vinyl and is easily cleaned/decontaminated. Just set it up, spray with an appropriate decon solution, and rinse. Bats cannot easily climb up the smooth bag and a center plastic baffle inhibits them from simply flying out of the bag. An optional removable Baffle Bar Roost insert allows bats to roost quietly while waiting for removal instead of flailing about. The Baffle Bar also restricts bat flight and keeps them easy to reach, instead of being tucked under layers of urine-soaked fabric or wedged into corners. Drain holes at the bottom of the bag prevent moisture from accumulating in the bag.

Included with each trap is a custom storage bag, low-vis green 8 lb. line, and instruction manual. Accessories sold separately are the Baffle Bar Roost and extra Catch Bags. Designed and built in the U.S.A.

  • 6' (1.8 m) wide x up to 8' (2.4 m) tall capture area (the end user strings the harp to their preferred size). Weight: 47 lbs. with optional Roost Baffle Bar.
  • Completely redesigned unbreakable tension system.
  • Larger diameter side columns with telescoping legs, each independently movable.
  • Lower line bars and catch bag can each be placed anywhere on the columns and are independent from each other enabling the user to level the trap under any conditions.
  • With the max 8' high capture area rigged, the top of the trap is 10.5' above the ground. When all legs are raised to maximum extension, the top of the trap frame can be 12.5' above the ground, higher than a single high mist net set.
  • A 6' x 8' harp trap is serious gear: fully expanded it will contain approximately 1,000’ of line.
  • 3' (0.9 m) wide trap head available for narrow applications. 6’ trap head piece is interchangeable with 3’ allowing for maximum flexibility.
  • Simplified leg assembly. Just as strong and adaptable to terrain, but faster setup and lighter weight.
  • New head assembly is stronger and cleaner looking.
  • Catch bag has been updated to reduce puckers and now incorporates built in anti-escape flaps.
