About AES Traps & Tools

AES Traps & Tools is a family-owned and operated business. The owner, Scott Balts, is a lifelong trapper who runs an animal damage control business and quickly realized the need for high-quality, durable traps. He began experimenting with designs and materials and developed the traps and tools offered on this site. AES’s  traps and tools are  handmade in the U.S., right in Minnesota. Our products are made with extremely heavy GAW Riverdale wire. Our line of traps is varied and versatile. Many of the models may be used both horizontally and vertically, increasing the opportunities to set traps and catch that target animal.

And God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth” – Genesis 1:26

We hope you enjoy our site’s selection. If you have any questions or comments, please send them  sbbalts@yahoo.com or visit our facebook page.
