You are doing amazing work Salmoner - keep it up and also your reports
Not much to report from me - I am still doing the yards but the kill results have plummeted
A change from Ditrac to Contrac has dealt the rodents a serious blow - some bait stations are still moving but most have stopped - the last two trips around one line of about 40 traps have provided no kills - but still plenty of empty un-tripped traps - the cockroaches are enjoying my Possum Paste - no lure = no kills - so I have found some dry old Nara lure plugs that didnít work and soaked them in neat aniseed oil - back in the Snap-E trap with plenty of oil around them - will see if it works
Checked another line of about 20 traps last Saturday - just two rats and a heap of possum fur on a Sentenel - strange because they donít often escape from those traps - I feel a bit guilty about showing a filthy Doc250 - but I donít like to touch them if I donít have to - have caught plenty of pests on manky old bait - even a dry old pilchard - need to buy some new white PP balls   
Total trap kills around the Park for 2018 = 328 - 291 rats, 15 possums, 20 hogs, 1 cat and 1 ferret - stoats have been seen in daylight but too smart for me

Checked about 20 traps today - one rat in a Doc250 and one had a sniff of a Nara plug soaked in aniseed - cockroaches didnít get that one

It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler

Checked my local traps today and a big adult rat and the usual collection of mice.

Did the high country traps last week and my cunning plan of adding mallard feathers in the bait end of the trap wasnt a roaring success in fact i didnt get anything. I saw an adult cat Cry which we will have a go at catching in live capture cages.
