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!
