Modifying the Victor rat trap to effectively kill stoats & ship rats

adminTools & resources, Traps & guides

The modified Victor® Easy Set® trap provides a low-cost, low-weight, humane trapping option for community groups to control stoats and ship rats. The two setting options (vertical and horizontal) minimise the risk of capture of non-target species such as kiwi and weka. Though community groups could make their own modifications to the Victor® Easy Set® trap, two NZ suppliers of pest control products are currently investigating making modified traps commercially available.
