Predator Update – get ready for August!

A big thank you to all groups who have been continuing their predator control to date.

By now you will likely have heard about the nations MEGA mast and our Auckland suburbs are no exception. This year has had an incredible amount of native seed and food produced, which flows through the food web and should help boost native invertebrate, bird and reptile counts.

This is great news… however the same can be said for pest animals. We really want to stop the surge in rat and mouse populations in particular - and stop them before they reach your homes ceilings and wall spaces, and of course protect the wildlife we are all striving to protect.

The solution is as simple as get a trap or bait station out into your garden and in our reserves.

A24 Traps for sale

With the wonderful support of Predator Free New Zealand and Kiwibank, we have a limited number of self-resetting Goodnature A24 traps available.

A24’s control rats, mice and hedgehog.

They are great for steep areas or those with less mobility as they only need to be checked once every 6 months. Also perfect for the holiday home property where landowners may be away for extended periods.

PFK are able to sell these at a special price of $100 so please get in touch if you are interested. Email
