CERTIFIED PEST TRAPS

The importance of humane traps

We want to protect our native animals and we believe this can and should be accomplished without undue pain and suffering being caused to other animals, even voracious predators such as rats, stoats and possums.

What is the NAWAC Trap-testing Guideline?

The National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee (NAWAC) has set trap-testing guidelines for the welfare performance of traps used in New Zealand so that traps can be assessed in a standardised way.

The NAWAC kill trap test requires 10/10 test animals to be rendered irreversibly unconscious within 3 minutes in order to meet the guideline for acceptable performance.
