Advanced Trap was started by professional volume trapper, Kirk DeKalb. Kirk has a wealth of trapping knowledge which he generously shares.

Over the years, Kirk has designed and produced superior wire trigger, pan trigger, bite and pull trigger powered door cage traps for the animal damage control industry.

Kirk holds two patents now licensed  to Melnik Resources Ltd. to manufacture, sell and distribute throughout North America. Melnik has been in the metal business for over 25 years.
