This trap is a good quality copy of the DOC 200 trap that is used extensively throughout New Zealand for the control of rats, mustelids and hedgehogs.
The Philproof 200 trap should be expected to have an equivalent performance to the DOC 200 traps both in terms of killing and capture performance.
It is made of rust proof stainless steel with a stainless steel trigger plate.
It needs to be placed in a plastic cover or wooden box to minimise the capture of native birds or pets. Some people prefer to manufacture the boxes themselves. A plastic cover is also available on this website.
Place in areas where birdlife is to be protected or where problem animals have been sighted
