Predator control


This shows the grid of bait lines, running in straight lines 100m apart. Bait stations are placed every 50m in most areas, but a 100m spacing is being trialled in some newer blocks. Cordons of stoat traps, all of which are kill-traps, also run through the area, and are being re-baited two-weekly all year (and sometimes once a week, at the time of peak stoat activity November to March).
