Pest Monitoring

Traps.co.nz sells four monitoring devices that are used to determine the presence and population density of possum, rat and stoat populations. These are:

  1. WaxTags. These are plastic tags that contain a lump of soft wax at their base that accurately records animal tooth-marks left when they bite the wax to determine if it is edible. 
  2. Chew Cards. These are corrugated plastic (corflute) cards that contain Possum Dough that record animal bite-marks when animals eat the Possum Dough.
  3. Tracking Tunnels. These are plastic tunnels that contain a card partially covered with tracking ink that records animal foot-prints.
  4. Leg-hold Traps. These are used to determine possum densities based on the proportion of traps that capture possums.
