my trap is an old one that actually measures a good 43mm, having said that I can't hold the ends and the ruler at the same time to photograph it as the ends keep curling! so will have to do with 42 to 43 ish : :tu: I should have measured it when it was younger.

Crumble, the traps do seem to keep growing slowly after they become functional, so you may have gained a few millimetres by the later pic. I think enry69's has the edge on yours though.

Yes :P I'm sure you're right, anyway I can't hold the trap enough to get it all visible under the ruler, don't have enough hands/fingers. :smile: maybe next year.

Hi EMa,
Is it from the VFT clone "Big Traps", I heard they have re-named it Baby Traps! yours is no baby.

If you want to qualify for the competition you will need to photograph with a clear plastic ruler in front of the trap.

My biggest one this year if from my Slack's Giant at 42mm. Not worth showing a pic unless it grows bigger than 43mm, as enry is in the lead!
