Dept of Conservation: Build a backyard trapping tunnel

A trapping tunnel is a box to put a rat trap inside. The tunnel is designed to protect your young family members and pets from the trap.

If there is a Predator Free community near you, they will likely have trapping tunnels ready to go, but if there isn’t a group nearby, or if you’re up for a challenge, you can make the tunnel yourself. Check out the Dept of Conservation website for instructions:
