1x Digital Strike Counter
The Goodnature® Digital Strike Counter tracks how many rats or mice you've caught so you know you're getting on top of the problem.
It works like a pedometer, registering and counting the force of the striker being triggered. So it's lined up to count each strike accurately, the counter needs to be facing away from the trap.
• Easy to check and reset
• 5 year battery life
2x Gas Canisters
Goodnature® gas canisters power the A24 Trap enabling it to automatically reset, giving you constant control against rats and mice.
To maximise the life of your trap, we recommend using Goodnature gas canisters only.

The Goodnature® Automatic Lure Pump ensures your trap always has fresh lure available, increasing your trapping success.

3x Rodent Detector Cards
Goodnature® Rodent Detector Cards help you find the best places to set your A24 Rat & Mouse Trap.
The cards contain our non-toxic chocolate lure. Rats and mice chew on the cards to get to the lure, showing you it's a location they feel safe to eat. This means it's a good place to install your trap.
• Help attract and familiarise rats and mice with the new food source in your trap.
• The lure is toxin-free so safe to use at home around pets and children.
• Cards are water resistant so can be used outdoors and indoors.

Each trap comes with a Trap Mount to secure your trap in place. Slide it off the body of the trap and screw in place 12 cm off the ground. Remember to install your trap where your Rodent Detector Cards showed you to!
• The Trap Mount can be easily screwed into trees and posts outdoors or timber framing indoors.
• If you're trapping outdoors and need to target multiple rodent hot spots, additional Trap Mounts can be purchased.
• Square drive screws included.
1x Quick Start Guide
Each kit comes with a printed Quick Start Guide to step you through how to set up your new trap, along with a few tips to help you the most out of your A24 Rat & Mouse Trap.
Now, we know that reading instructions isn't for everyone, but it really will help you get off on the right foot and solve your rat or mouse problem quicker.

The A24 Trap is super effective outdoors. Because it automatically resets and automatically dispenses fresh lure, the trap is always active. An always on trap gives you constant control against rats and mice that are present in all neighbourhoods.
Here are some simple steps you can take to ensure your property is a rodent free one:
• Find the best location for your trap with Rodent Detector Cards.
• Remove any competing food sources that rodents may be interested in.
• Pre-feed the area around your trap to encourage rodents to the lure inside your trap.

The A24 Trap is perfect for keeping rats and mice out of your home. It's automatic resetting and lure dispensing features means you can solve your rodent problem before you even know you've got one. This is particularly important in cooler months when rats and mice start to look for warmth in homes.
Here are a couple of tips for how to get rid of rats and mice indoors:
• First, it helps to think like a rat. The best place for a trap is where a rodent feels safe to eat, so choose a spot where they’re hidden from predators.
• Good places to put your trap are in your roof, the corner of your garage or basement, in a kitchen cupboard - nice sheltered locations.
• When rats or mice come calling, there’s never just one! It can be helpful to move your trap from time to time, to find all the rodent hot spots at your place. A Trap Stand makes this easier.
Pest management can be challenging on farms. There are plenty of competing food sources for pests like rats and mice, plus there's the need to consider the risk of secondary poisoning if you’re using baits as your control method.
The A24 Trap is used widely on farms in New Zealand to control rat infestations for two reasons.
It's ability to automatically reduce the time needed to maintain the trap to just a couple of times a year rather than every few days saves farmers a lot of time.
The risks posed by rat poisons are removed because the trap uses a non-toxic long-life lure. This is helpful if you're producing food or have working animals or pets on your farm.
Here are a couple of tips for how to get rid of rats and mice on farm:
• An important first step if you're trying to control rats and mice on your farm is to consider and, where possible, remove competing food sources.
• Then once you have an A24 installed, pre-feed the area around the trap with our lure pouch to get them familiar with the lure inside the trap.
The A24 Trap resets automatically
Powered by a CO₂ gas canister, this trap automatically resets itself after each strike. With a trap that is always active, ready to catch passing rodents, you get constant control against rats and mice. One gas canister enables the trap to kill 24 rats and mice before it needs replacing. Because let's be honest, you've got plenty of other things you'd rather be doing.
Know you're getting on top
of the problem
It doesn’t take long for dead rats and mice under your trap to be scavenged by other animals - like other rats, cats and birds. This kit comes with a Digital Strike Counter that displays a count of how many rats or mice the trap has killed.
automatically kept fresh
Fresh lure is key to catching rats and mice, which is why we make an Automatic Lure Pump to do this for you. It comes filled with our toxin-free long-life lure, which is dispensed over six months, so no more re-baiting traps every few days. And because it's non-toxic there's no risk of secondary poisoning, so it's safe to use around pets and children.
The kindest answer
to your rat problem
Because we believe that no creature should suffer, this trap is designed to kill rats and mice swiftly. It is certified A-Class humane by the National Animal Welfare Advisory Committee of New Zealand. And has been tested by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) in the UK and been added to their list of approved traps.
Here are some common ones we get asked.
Don't be shy... if there's something on your mind, get in touch!
Can I use the trap if I have pets?
Our lure is non-toxic, so safe to use at home around pets. The lure we use to attract rats and mice in this kit is chocolate based, which isn’t an attractant to common pets like cats and dogs. They’re likely to be more interested in the rodents left under the trap! Although, given most pets are well fed, you may not see this either.
When setting up your trap, the recommended height from ground level is 12cm (about a hand width). As this is low to the ground, it’s easy for rats and mice to get into the trap and much more difficult for other animals to. Another safety measure built into the design is the size of the trap entrance - big enough for rats and mice, and too small for adult cats and dogs.
Where should I install my trap?
It's pretty easy to know when you've got a rat problem. It's not always as easy to find the best trapping spot to get rid of them.
Before setting up your trap, place detector cards around your property to see where your rats feel safe feeding. After a few days, check which card has the most scratches & bite marks - this will be the best spot to set up your trap.
How does it work?
As rats and mice try to get to the tasty lure inside the trap, they trigger the striker. The trap fires, killing the rodent swiftly. Then, as the trap automatically resets itself the dead rodent drops out of the trap making way for the next one.
Do I need to buy gas and lure too?
The A24 Rat & Mouse Trap Kit has everything you need to get started and includes six months worth of our non-toxic chocolate lure and two gas canisters, which is enough to kill 48 rats and mice.
