Extra Tips

  1. Airflow is important. Keep side vents, plume tube, and net clean. Standard Maintenance tips apply.
  2. Do not move the trap when it’s running or when it’s still warm. Components, including the igniter, could be damaged and prevent continuous operation.
  3. The Defender will cover 1/2 acre because of the air system inside the trap. The internal design is different than the Defender despite it’s similar outward appearance. The trumpet and plume tube redesign also assists in the larger coverage area.
