The first step to deterring predators is to identify them. Each ‘killer’ has a method of entry, attack and kill, so if you wish to play detective then be observant and look for clues. Examine where, how, and when birds turn up dead, mutilated or missing and by a process of elimination work out which animal/bird could be your prime suspect. Regular trapping is the way to go to get on top of any pests.
This is a perfect trap to catch feral cats, ferrets, stoats and possums. This is a good-sized trap. An ideal trap around pets and children.

Too many mice running around? This double-entry mouse trap is low-line so can sit under furniture or out of sight. There is an entry each side. As the mouse walks in the entry the floor drops down and lets it through. The floor then rises up again preventing escape. The trap is all galvanised but the top is clear plastic. This serves to encourage other mice in once one is trapped. (Mice like to socialise in small places.) It also allows a view of bait, and allows you to see when it needs emptying. Lid opens for baiting and removal of mice. Dimensions: 26cm long x 16cm deep x 5cm high.
