Rodents – Chemical Free

The Revolutionary Automatic Humane Rat and Mouse Trap.


The TRAP is a multi-kill system that reliably and effectively provides instant, humane kill of the pest rodents.

The TRAP is powered by compressed gas from a small, recyclable canister. This powers and resets the trap multiple times before needing replacement.

The TRAP works by striking the skull of the rodent with a glass reinforced polymer piston, killing the pest instantly. This is important since it ensures other rodents are not deterred from investigating the TRAP and therefore being killed themselves.

In fact field trials have proven that the TRAP can kill several rodents in the one night, with rodents climbing over the bodies of their dead comrades to get to the lure.

caribbean2-smallDesigned for Nature – Perfect for Urban Environments

Revolutionary research has designed the trap for long term outdoor use with no possibility of secondary poisoning.

The design behind the trap arises from the management of rats in large scale Wilderness Conservation Programs. Thus it has minimal requirements for servicing, maximum reliability and simplicity, and repeated successful killing of rats and mice.

There are no toxic bait components in the trap which makes it the perfect solution for all your rodent management needs. The risks of secondary toxicity from poison rodent baits to predatory birds, mammals and our pets are well documented. This risk is simply eliminated with the use of the trap. In addition it is a multi-kill trap, capable of killing numerous rodents, more quickly and efficiently than baits.

How It Works – The trap reliably and humanely kills the rodent, and then automatically resets itself, ready for the next invader.

The TRAP is powered by a Gold-standard CO2 Canister, within which the pressure ranges from 1,500 – 13,000 kPa, depending upon the ambient temperature. When the Canister is attached, the gas passes through a Regulator which restricts the pressure released into the TRAP to about 500 kPa.

Inside the TRAP the precision designed internal pressure reservoirs are equilibrated at 500 kPa. The pressure behind the Piston Diaphragm forces it shut, closing off the Piston Bore.

The Natural Rodent Lure is mounted above the Shroud Chamber. The lure draws the rodents in to investigate. When the rodent’s head is positioned correctly in the Shroud Chamber, it brushes aside the sensitive trigger (set at a pressure of just 20 g).

This opens the Vent Valve, venting the gas from the Vent Reservoir and from behind the Piston Diaphragm to atmospheric. The higher pressure in the Piston Reservoir then explodes out into the Piston Bore, driving the glass reinforced polymer Piston out into the Shroud Chamber, with a force of 30 Kg, instantly killing the rat or mouse. The Piston holds in place for 0.25 seconds before releasing the rodent.

Now that the internal pressure has been released, the CO2Canister releases more CO2, and the Piston Diaphragm once more closes off the Piston Bore. A small spring draws the Piston back into the firing position.

The TRAP is now armed and ready to kill the next pest rodent.

·         The trap is designed to protect its critical components from the rain and weather. The outer components are UV stabilised to counter deterioration when placed in direct sunlight.

CO2 Cannister Gold-standard CO2 Canister has high purity CO2 content and low residual oil content to ensure security of the seals in the TRAP. NB The use of non-approved CO2 canisters will void your warranty.
Humane Kill The TRAP provides instant kill to the target species and has undertaken independent humane evaluation to deliver on the NZ MAF National Animal Welfare Advisory Guidelines (NAWAC) and it meets the Class A Standard (highest Standard).
Placement In wildlife conservation programs and agricultural situations, placement in a 50 m x 100 m grid is recommended, following the contours of the land. For use in the urban environment placement at 10 m intervals for mice and 20 m – 30 m for rats is recommended, with placement in areas where non-target species are less likely to gain access.
