    More of this and less 1080!

    Don't know if anybody else saw this but this is awesome that they are using this rather than 1080 in places. Not sure how it would work on the mainland and in big areas but we can only hope they will start using it more and more. Now do they make a possum version?

    We've started using them at our place, seem to work really well.
    They seem to be very effective and well made, but they are expensive. The first night it got a kill it was a double, so I'm sold on them for rats.

    Thanks for the heads up. Rats are a real problem on our place and traps and poison isn't having a sustainable impact. I've just bought a 5 pack so it will be interesting to monitor their success. I have ordered a stoat pack as well and will use this in one of the traps. Pitty they don't do one for puke's!
