Corflute has been used since it first became available many moons ago,and before that,  a 6 x4 inch piece of newspaper tacked above the trap did the same thing.
An automated bait dispenser? how often are they checking the trapline? Surely not every twelve months?

Dire Straights had it right I reckon 'Money for nothing'

The continual trumpeting of pre-feeding as a new discovery is misleading. A standard pre-feed was alway two and sometimes three pre-feeds right from the late 1800's through to the mid-eighties or so.  I suspect  reducing to one or no pre-feed was a cost cutting measure. Like wise,experimenting with different toxic loadings and sowing densities has been tried ever since the advent of aerially applied poison baits. Those technique's were responsible for exterminating the last rabbit in New Zealand wern't they?
