    It’s hard to find something exciting to report - mostly it is just rats and hogs but a few young stoats starting to show up at the Park - clamping them across the shoulders in Snap-e traps that don’t kill them - we put out a small sample of Contrac in all bait stations - some is gone in a few days - the total trap kill this year is 198 pests.

    Back to “Back Yard Trapping” with PFBOP - we are doing well around our street - 29 houses - about 24 PFBOP trap boxes as well as about another 15 trap boxes owned by individuals.
    The street total is now 87 pests killed in 6 months - all varieties from ferrets to mice - if they have four legs and fur or prickles on their back - we will trap them - except for cats.
    Yesterday I tripped up a monster Norway - on the perimeter track around the street sections - orchard one side and houses on the other.
    I got the Norway in a box with a Victor Pro - he got whacked on the head - confused and ran down the wrong end to get out - but then he had a rest. The box is 450mm long so that buggar had to be close to 420mm and must have weighed half a kg - I should develop a Morgan score for rats.
    Take a look at the PFBOP trapping map - our street is out towards Omokoroa and has the biggest yellow blob - interesting to magnify various blobs to see what is happening - the blue house icons have a trap - the yellow blob is a kill or kills - click on them to see numbers or type of animal - it is good software

    That is a pretty cool initiative, and that app is a great way to keep track and people keen, hopefully other councils including mine will follow suit.

    Over the last 3 weeks I've caught 18 mice and a rat in my vegetable garden. Just an open vector (no tunnel) against a brick wall.

    Round the trap line after work today with the boys.

    1 hedgehog, several very wet and rotten rats. Most traps set off but many were mice.

    There was however this fella. First one for ages...



    Tails in the freezer



    Also decided to put a new trap up at the house, will see if it manages to get something.



    The boys loved it...fully entertained and so excited by the catches

    Love it !!

    Had a few of the new & not so new lures dropped off today will be interesting to see how they go....



    This is a great deal from pics, there is a lot of peanut butter in that tub.

    Treacle gold (green) looks interesting, claims to be mold resistant we will see. Most things mold in the wetland I'm trapping.
