      Identify the Problem Animal

      The first step in effective animal trapping is identifying the specific pest causing the disturbance. Whether it’s possums invading your roof, brush turkeys digging up your garden, or birds creating a nuisance, understanding the target species is crucial.

      Consult with Pest Control Experts

      To ensure the proper trapping techniques and adherence to local regulations, it is advisable to consult with pest control experts like the ones at Pest Control North Brisbane. We have the knowledge and experience to assist you in choosing the right traps and methods for each specific pest.

      Choose the Appropriate Trap

      Different animals require different trapping methods. For possums, specialised possum traps are designed to safely capture and remove them from your property. Brush turkeys may require traps with mirrors to trick them into territorial disputes, while birds may require specific bird traps. Select the appropriate trap based on the target your problem animal.

      Positioning and Baiting the Trap

      Proper placement of the trap is essential for successful trapping. Identify high-traffic areas or areas where the pest is causing the most disturbance. Bait the trap with suitable food or attractants that the target species find enticing. For example, possums can be attracted with fruits or vegetables, while cats may be lured by meat-based baits.

      Regular Monitoring and Inspection

      Once the traps are set, it’s crucial to regularly monitor and inspect them. Check the traps at least once a day to ensure captured animals are not left in the traps for extended periods. Timely removal of trapped animals is essential to maintain their welfare and comply with local regulations.

      Relocation or Disposal

      After capturing the target animal, it’s important to handle their removal properly. In the case of possums, relocation is often the preferred option, ensuring they are released in a suitable environment at least 25 kilometers away. Consult with our professionals to determine the appropriate method of relocation or disposal for other pests.

      Prevention and Exclusion

      Trapping alone may not provide a long-term solution. Consider implementing preventive measures and exclusion techniques to minimise future pest invasions. For example, sealing entry points, installing bird netting, or creating deterrents can help deter pests from returning to your property.
