Ask Robbie (Goodnature’s co-founder) and he’ll tell you that using the right lure in your trap is as important as the location of the trap or the trap itself. In fact, here at Goodnature, just as much field testing goes into testing our lures as it does the traps. We decided to meet with lure expert Christine, to better understand what rats are looking for when they visit your trap and how you can better lure them in. She’s got an MSc in Molecular Biotechnology and a PhD in Plant Molecular Biology, so she’s the perfect person to help us out.
In rural New Zealand, animal health company Zoetis has teamed up with us here at Goodnature to set up a trapping network across three lower North Island farms to try to curb rodent numbers.
In this article we explore what a selfset rat trap actually is, how it differs from an automatic trap and the benefits of going either way. This should give you an understanding of what might work best for you, and your pest problems.
