Bait and trap day at Farrell’s Nursery, 13th April
We’ll be there from 9.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. at Farrell’s Nursery, 46 Pollock Rd, Pukekohe.
Second trap amnesty!
We had such a great response to our first trap amnesty day that we’re doing it again. If you have a trap or bait station in your shed that you got with the best of intentions but aren’t using, bring it in to us. We know that circumstances change, people move house or get super busy – we won’t judge, but we would love you to bring that trap or bait station to us so we can get it back out there in Franklin killing some pests.
Free pest control supplies include:
• “Double Tap” rat and possum block bait. 2kg plastic pails.
• “Pestoff” rat and possum pellet bait. 10kg bags. Doesn’t keep forever, so get just one and share it with your neighbours.
• Rat traps – various kinds including “Snap-e”, “Victor” and “T-Rex” Use at 4 stations per hectare at 50m spacing, plus in outbuildings.
• Possum traps – “Flipping Timmy”, easy to set, works out of reach of dogs and kids. 1 trap per hectare.
• Pied Piper rat bait stations – No bait can fall out. Protects bait from pets and rain. Use at 4 per hectare at 50m spacing, plus in outbuildings.
• Philproof possum/rat bait stations – The most effective pest control for larger blocks. 1 per hectare for possums, or 4 per hectare for rats.
• Connovation “Blue” and “Eggsellent” lures for attracting possums, rodents and mustelids into traps.
Special offer – Free Fix and Fogg peanut butter for your rat traps. Bring a pottle and a spoon and help yourself
