We have not been idle and have been looking at new ways to attract and kill predators. After listening to a radio program the other week we heard about a trapping outfit called Zero Invasive Predators (ZIP) who extended the length of their traps to make them more tunnel like. Evidently this doubled the catch rate. Not wishing to expend time and money we have modified a couple of traps using some spare down pipe.
We have also got hold of some specific baits for rats and stoats and have been trialling these in place of the usual peanut butter. LOCA has approved the purchase of new traps and these will be deployed on a new trap line along the Boyes Beach wetland.
