Our members build, place, bait, and maintain traps.
We have 157 traps of various types and are always building and placing more. Let us know if you would like to host a trap on your property.
In 2021 -- our first year -- we trapped 31 rats, 44 possums, and 7 hedgehogs.
Our community has supported us greatly, from neighbours allowing us to trap on their properties, as well as companies providing materials and supplies.
Our first set of rat traps were provided by Mitre 10. Rex Butterworth from LJ Hooker gave us corflute to be recycled into trapping tunnels. Pic's Peanut Butter provided their finest bait for our rat traps.
Thank you to our wonderful community.
