I finally got around to setting up my traps! In Taranaki there is a huge push to eradicate pests to create a Predator Free NZ, and I cant wait to contribute.
When we lived in Raglan Whaingaroa I joined the Karioi Project and monitored two coastal traplines. During a working bee, using recycled materials I built my rat trap. It’s baited with peanut butter.
I also have a stoat trap that I have baited with one on chickens eggs. I have placed the traps out of the way, but close to my chicken coop. Stay tuned to see what I catch!
I have registered my project with trap.nz
