Rat eradication programme

This has gained good momentum with 60 bait stations installed which are being serviced by 15 enthusiastic community service agents. These are the people that live on the gully edge and have been trained to service the bait stations and record that information into the TrapNZ website.
After six years since it conception this is a really interesting time for this project. On our page of TrapNZ all the information we require is being recorded to monitor the success or otherwise of the programme. After going through the next seasonal rat breeding cycle we will know by June / July next year whether we are going to achieve our objective of clearing out all breeding resident rats.
