Effective and humane stoat, rat and hedgehog trap

100% effective and humane stoat trap. In independent testing, the BT200 Trap killed stoats in accordance with National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee (NAWAC) guidelines (2011), every time.

Tested and proven for Greater Wellington Regional Council

The Council wanted to establish a trapping network for stoats on the Miramar Peninsula as part of the Predator Free Wellington project.  So they asked the DOC founded research and development entity, Zero Invasive Predators, to independently test the BT 200 Trap against the National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee (NAWAC) guideline (2011). BT200 achieved 100% success and gained a Class A rating.

How to use the BT200 stoat, rat and hedgehog trap

These kill traps are fixed permanently to the bottom of a box which is specifically designed for targeted species. Tunnels channel the target species through holes in mesh and only allow entry of certain sized mustelid.  This ensures non targeted species such as kiwi are not harmed, as well as protecting the public.

Our traps are designed to eradicate rats, stoats and hedgehogs. The traps are set with a specific tool then a safety bar applied while the trap is baited. The safety bar can then be removed and the lid fastened to seal the top of the box.
