Target predators: rats
The video below gives a step-by-step tutorial on setting up the A24 trap. You can also read the A24 Quick Start Guide here.
Top safety tips
- We recommend watching the above video for instructions on safely installing your trap.
- Make sure you always wear gloves when handling your trap or catches.
- The lures are toxin-free, so there is no risk of secondary poisoning to native species or predators.
- Don’t shift a live trap. You must de-gas and then de-pressurise the trap before shifting.
What should I use as bait?
The trap will come with a Chocolate Formula for Rats, which will last for 6 months. You can purchase lure replenishment packs from the Goodnature website.
Where should I put my trap?
This kit comes with a Rodent Detector kit — it will help you pinpoint the best place to put your A24 trap. Set your A24 at the exact same sites where rodent interaction has been positively detected from the Rodent Detector Kit. If you’re not getting results, try a different spot.
How often should I check my traps?
The Automatic Lure Pump, once activated, will release the lure itself slowly and consistently over the 6 month period. Technically the trap doesn’t need to be checked at all until the 6-month replenishments need to be installed. You don’t need to check for bodies as they will generally be scavenged.
How do I dispose of the bodies?
With the A24, the dead predators are often scavenged by cats, dogs, or other animals, so you might not see any. However, if there are dead rats near your trap they could start to smell after a couple of days, so it’s good to remove them. They can be buried in the garden or bagged and placed in household rubbish. Make sure you always wear gloves when handling your catches.
