Automatic Lure Pump makes trapping easier
Our Automatic Lure Pump (ALP) makes it easier for you to keep your rats and stoats under constant control. The ALP steadily dispenses fresh lure from your A24 trap across 6 months, reducing the number of times you need to check it from 12 to just twice a year. Watch this to find out more.
Rodent detector cards help you think like a rat
To successfully get rid of your rat problem, it’s important you assess (don’t guess), where to position your A24 trap for rats and stoats. Our rodent detector cards show you where your rats and stoats feel safe to eat. See how they work.

Four mice, one trap, one night
From our trials, we know over 80% of pests killed by our traps are scavenged by other animals within 3 weeks and over half within 48 hours. Because you might not always see evidence of your success, we recommend you add a Digital Strike Counter to your trap to do the counting for you.
One trap, five rats, two mice
Leaving your A24 trap in place and maintaining it with fresh lure will keep your rat, stoat and mouse problem under constant control. Watch to see how one trap killed dozens of rodents over time - without needing to be reset.
Rodents scavenged from under trap
John had mice raiding his pet food. After catching four mice in the first night with a couple of our A24 traps for rats, stoats and mice, he sent us this footage of his success.
Mice killed humanely
When it comes to being humane, our traps have been independently tested and meet the highest international standards. We set up an A24 trap with a clear shroud to show you how mice are killed instantly and humanely when they brush past the highly sensitive trigger inside.
Possums killed humanely
When it comes to being humane, our traps have been independently tested and meet the highest international standards. We set up an A12 trap with a clear shroud to show you how a possum is killed instantly and humanely when it bites and pulls the trigger.
Multiple possums killed humanely
When it comes to being humane, our traps have been independently tested and meet the highest international standards. We set up an A12 trap with a clear shroud to show you how multiple possums are killed instantly and humanely when they bite and pull the trigger.
A12 trap kills 12 possums humanely
Our A12 trap for possums resets itself 12 times before you need to replace the gas canister. Watch our video to see the third possum killed by an A12 trap left in one location.
A24 trap kills stoats humanely
When it comes to being humane, our traps have been independently tested and meet the highest international standards. DOC used field cameras in the Waikato to show how stoats are killed instantly and humanely when they brush past the sensitive trigger in search of the lure.
A24 traps kill more stoats
DOC uses our A24 traps to control stoats. See how multiple stoats are killed without manual intervention. Traditional traps would have only killed one stoat as they’re only checked and rebaited every 20 - 30 days.
DOC used field cameras to collect numerous A24 stoat kill videos in projects around the Waikato. When set with stoat lure the A24 can humanely kill multiple stoats between checks.
Little penguin – Korora
Little Penguins/korora are the world's smallest penguin. Their nests are predated by rats, weasels, stoats, and hedgehogs, while adult penguins face other risks in urban areas, such as cars and dogs.
A24 traps save endangered turtles
Our A24 traps successfully removed rats from Maria Langa Key, south of Puerto Rico. Watch these endangered sea turtles hatch and make it safely into the sea.
