Net trapping is a Hunter technique used to trap lizards, salamanders, penguins and baby squirrels. With level 29 Hunter, a rope and small fishing net in the inventory (the tool belt doesn't count), clicking on a young tree will set the trap. When the lizard or salamander passes, it may be caught.

If the prey is successfully caught, the net will close in around the animal and you will have the option to "Check" the net trap. If not successful, the tree will snap back to its original position, and your small fishing net and rope will appear on the ground, which you must pick up or it will eventually disappear.

Bait may increase the catch rate for lizards and salamanders and is made by using the herb with 15 swamp tar and a pestle and mortar, though they can be decently caught without any bait. If you do not use bait for trapping baby squirrels, they will only trip the trap and you will not catch one. Squirrels may be kept as pets with level 60 Summoning.
