Rats

While it looks like a compact machine, there's a lot going on in our A24 trap.

Our design considers everything from animal behaviour (how to attract a naturally shy wild animal), animals of varying sizes through to the ultimate lure flavour (arguably the most important element!) to entice them into the trap. And that's before a complex trap mechanic can even be deployed!

Within the trap, precision between lure position and the animal activated trigger relative to the striker (delivering the blow) combines to ensure a swift kill to the smallest and largest of rats.

Optimal Lure flavours for rats: Nut Butter, Chocolate or Blood

Mice

While it looks like a compact machine, there's a lot going on in our A24 trap.

Our design considers everything from animal behaviour (how to attract a naturally shy wild animal), animals of varying sizes through to the ultimate lure flavour (arguably the most important element!) to entice them into the trap. And that's before a complex trap mechanic can even be deployed!

Originally a rat and stoat trap, we’ve designed an innovative mouse baffle (tube) which fits inside the trap to narrow the route to lure, ensuring the animal will push the trigger to activate the striker.

Optimal Lure flavours for mice: Nut Butter, Chocolate

Stoats

While it looks like a compact machine, there's a lot going on in our A24 trap.

Our design considers everything from animal behaviour (how to attract a naturally shy wild animal), animals of varying sizes through to the ultimate lure flavour (arguably the most important element!) to entice them into the trap. And that's before a complex trap mechanic can even be deployed!

Within the trap, precision between lure position and the animal activated trigger relative to the striker (delivering the blow) combines to ensure a swift kill to a juvenile rat or a large adult stoat.

Optimal Lure flavours for stoats: Blood, Chocolate Nut Butter

Your most asked questions

Here are some common ones we get asked about our A24 Kits. Don't be shy... if there's something on your mind, get in touch!

Which kit is right for me?

The A24 Kit with Chirp is our best selling trap.
If you already use smartphone app technology to efficiently manage or enhance products designed to make your life easier, you'll love our A24 trap with Chirp. You'll get all of the A24 trap features (humane, non-toxic, multi-kill) plus access to data and information for peace of mind that your property is being protected, 24/7. Including kills count, time of kill and reminders to replace your lure and gas.

The A24 Kit with Counter
If you're after a simple monitoring solution with all of the A24 trap features (humane, non-toxic, multi-kill), yet still affords you the confidence that your pest problem is under control, our A24 with Counter is the way to go. Track your kills.

The A24 Base Kit
If you're content to have an effective trapping solution (humane, non-toxic and multi-kill) toiling away with minimal intervention until 6 monthly maintenance, our base kit is the way to go, just keep in mind you won't be able to track how many rats it's dispatched.

How does it work?

The name of our A24 Rat & Stoat trap represents the following: A for automatic and 24 because it can kill up to 24 rodents per gas canister.

The trap is designed to attract specific species through the use of a non-toxic lure and is dispensed by an automatic pump to keep it fresh for 6 months. Those species are rats, mice and stoats.

Rodents never reach the lure because as they pass the trigger, they release the gas-powered piston that hits them with great force on the head, killing swiftly.

The piston is spring-loaded, which means that when the animal falls to the ground, it retracts completely and the CO₂ chamber fills automatically, making the trap ready to kill again.

Dead animals are usually scavenged within 24 to 48 hours by cats, dogs or birds, and since they were killed without the use of toxins, it is a free organic lunch for others.

It is worth mentioning that the diameter of the tube and its internal design make it accessible only to some species. However, if you are concerned about local non-target species, just reach out for help.

What comes in each kit?

Each trap kit includes everything you need for six months of rat and stoat trapping. That means:

1x A24 Rat & Stoat Trap (three models to choose from)
1x CO₂ Gas Canisters
1x Automatic Lure Pump (two flavours to choose from)
3x Rodent Detector Cards
1x Trap mount with Screws
1x Info Card

Every six months you will need to purchase another Automatic Lure Pump and CO₂ Gas Canister, at a cost of approximatley $19.00.

Is it safe to use?

Our lure is non-toxic, so safe to use at home around pets and little ones. The lure we use to attract rats, mice and stoats isn’t an attractant to common pets like cats and dogs.

We recommend you set the trap 12cm (about a hand width) from the ground. This is low, so it’s easy for pests to get into the trap but much harder for your pets to.

Another safety measure built into the design is the size of the trap entrance - big enough for rats, mice and stoats and too small for adult cats and dogs.

If you're worried, set the trap up without the gas canister and watch to see how your pets interact with it. Once you're confident they'll be safe screw in the gas and off you go.

Also, if you are concerned about local non-target species, please email us so that we can support you with a mitigation plan. Please also have a read of our Tips for outdoor non-target mitigation.

More FAQs

"The A24 Traps were instrumental in creating a pest control solution in the ancient native forest where we work. So much so, that we now have the nation's most successful fenceless pest control operation, and have seen biodiversity success after success, including finding species that are new to science. We could not have gotten the forest health to where it is without Goodnature."
