Urban
Trapping

Our guide to trapping pests in your own backyard.

How

our traps work.

Community groups love our A24 Rat & Stoat trap because it automatically resets itself 24 times before you need to reset it, giving constant control against rats and stoats with minimal effort, and no toxins. Our Bluetooth technology, Chirp, is now making it much easier for trapping groups to collect and share data from their trapping. Check out how the Aro Valley community in Wellington are getting on top of their pest problem with our trapping technology below.

Wild Aro, Wellington.

"Thanks to Goodnatures Bluetooth enabled A24 Rat Trap, ongoing kill monitoring can be checked with the Chirp app on our groups smartphones, and reported back to the team, without anyone having to trek right to the trap. It saves time, effort and removes all manual tracking of kill data." - AJ, Wild Aro Wellington

Tawapou Farm, Matapouri.

The 124-hectare property has been in the Bowden family since 1966. “Mum and Dad loved trees so were careful not to clear all the bush, and they kept the possums under control,” says Helen. “When Dad died too young in 1980, Mum was determined to keep up the good fight. We’re all in it together now.”

"Goodnature’s A24 traps are a critical part of our tool kit. Knowing that the A24s kill multiple stoats and rats humanely and without toxins, sits perfectly with our ethos." - Helen, Tawapou Farm

Chirp.

What is it?

Our latest technology, Chirp, upgrades the A24 Rat & Stoat Trap to connect to smartphones - via Bluetooth and the Chirp App - letting community group trappers know every time the trap kills a pest. You can also tag each kill with what kind of pest your group has got rid of.

You can also tag each kill with what kind of pest your group has got rid of. The kill data is then visualised as a heat map.

Chirp

remembers for you.

As well as Chirp letting you know exactly when you’ve killed a pest, Chirp also notifies you when you need to replace your lure and gas canister.
