Why choose the A24

There are many ways the A24 is different from traditional, single-set snap traps. The following features and benefits make our A24 a favourite for backyard trappers and professionals too. 



The A24 automatically resets itself 24 times. This means as soon as you have set the trap for the first time, it keeps killing pests without you doing anything. No more removing dead pests from your trap. No more refilling your trap with bait. Pests are killed instantly and humanely. They drop to the ground and the trap resets itself. Dead pests are almost always scavenged in outdoor settings so you might not even see them.

One of the biggest factors in a trap’s success is simply that it’s ‘ready and set’ to trap a pest all the time. Often when a rat or stoat visits a traditional single-set trap, it has already been set off so the opportunity to catch another rat or stoat is missed. By using the A24, it’s always ready and waiting to trap the next pest, and the next, and the next...The trap keeps your pest problem under constant control.


To help you keep track of your trap’s success, we’ve developed the Smart Cap for the Goodnature Trap. Using Bluetooth technology, the Smart Cap talks directly to your smartphone every time your trap kills a pest. It also notifies you when you need to replace your paste and gas canister. Because the Smart Cap works 24/7 and lets you share data about your trap with other trappers, they can maintain your trap and monitor your success too.

Six monthly maintenance

We wanted to make it easier for people to keep traps attractive to pests, so we developed a long-lasting paste that is automatically refreshed by our Automatic Paste Pump. It dispenses fresh, toxin-free paste for up to six months. This means you don’t need to check the trap constantly to refresh its paste, saving you time and the cost of labour. Your rats and stoats are kept under constant control.

The fresher the paste, the easier it is to attract a passing pest so if you’re planning or managing a more intensive trapping project, or if you have a serious infestation of rats or stoats, changing the paste every four months, rather than six, can help get on top of your pest problem more effectively.

Toxin-free and humane

We know we need to kill pests to restore biodiversity in New Zealand and around the world but we also think it can be done kindly, with respect for pests. Toxins cause a cruel death which is slow and painful. That’s why we’ve designed our traps to be toxin-free and humane. With a powerful strike, our traps kill pests instantly. Independently tested, our traps meet the highest international standards. Our traps are certified A-class humane so we know no the pest will not suffer. You can read about our humane standards here.

Light and easy to use

We’ve designed and made our traps to be small and light so anyone can set them up and move them around. No more carrying heavy traps through dense bush. No more shifting a single-set trap around your backyard. It’s easy to change the paste and gas canister - you don’t need to use physical force or be a professional trapper. Many children use our traps to protect their local wildlife. 

Safe for you, your pets and children

Our traps are designed to target specific pests and nothing else. It’s important to remember that all pest control methods come with some risk, so it’s important that you follow the safety advice and installation instructions. If you do, our traps are safe to use around pets and children.
