DOC trap production

The MenShed team at the Wanaka Community Workshop are currently busy producing a range of DOC 200 traps. Each is destined for a local business or community group who will deploy the traps to protect endangered species from pests such as stoats and rats.

The traps are designed to kill pests yet ensure inquisitive birds such as Kea and Weka are kept well away from the trap mechanism.

Over recent years the MenShed team have produced hundreds of traps which are now doing their business across the valleys and hills of the Upper Clutha. Most have been built new but we have also be engaged in maintaining and refurbishing traps in order to extend their useful lives.
