Get the tools and guidance you need to trap in your community and on larger sites.

DOC's trapping guidance offer easy steps to trap mustelids (stoats, ferrets, weasels), rats and possums in any environment. It's simple 'how-to' advice from DOC's technical experts.

Effective trapping is achieved by identifying the predators in your area and understanding their behaviour. Our resources show you how to monitor predators and choose the best control methods.

You also can download a copy of this guidance below, or request a hardcopy from your local DOC visitor centre.
