More than 700 islanders give their time to control rats, protecting native birds such as tūī, kereru and kākā. As part of a fortnightly series, Sophie Boladeras meets some of these eco-warriors working to protect our sanctuary in the Gulf.
We’re rapt to have added a Nut Butter flavour to our lure range so we thought we would answer a few questions that you might have, but as always, if you have any other queries get in touch!
Ask Robbie (Goodnature’s co-founder) and he’ll tell you that using the right lure in your trap is as important as the location of the trap or the trap itself. In fact, here at Goodnature, just as much field testing goes into testing our lures as it does the traps. We decided to meet with lure expert Christine, to better understand what rats are looking for when they visit your trap and how you can better lure them in. She’s got an MSc in Molecular Biotechnology and a PhD in Plant Molecular Biology, so she’s the perfect person to help us out.
