Restricting the movement of pests across the city will support pest control in our fragments and surrounding forests.
We ask that you report captures via the ‘Tiakina Whangarei’ project on Trap.NZ or to one of the ‘Community Leads’ that will be coordinating management in your area. If you are trapping at school or kindergarten, we also have a fun rat tracker sheet which you can download for the kids to cross of their catches on.
Rat Trapper Starter Kit
For a small cost of $10, a rat trap that is housed in a sturdy wooden box can be purchased for your backyard*. These will be available at selected market events that will be advertised in advance (make sure you like our Facebook Page). Alternatively, they are also now available at the Northland Regional Council’s Whangarei office during the week. Your starter kit includes rat trap that is housed in a sturdy wooden box – when these are sold at market events, there may be additional items!
*This is an introductory offer. Limit of 2 per household.
