Predator Free Initiative at Taupo DeBretts
Taupo DeBretts is on board with the newly formed partnership between HAPNZ and the Predator Free New Zealand Trust. We have deployed 8 double ended DOC traps for mid sized predators such as rats and stoats. We have also installed over 50 self-loading bait stations around the premises to control the population of rats and mice. Early monitoring of our efforts are showing that the bait is being taken up at a fast rate and we are optimizing placement of the stations and traps in response to our findings.
