Now available in the U.S., the Goodnature A24 is a self-resetting trap that can kill 24 times before needing to be reset, the manufacturer reports. It's powered by compressed gas and uses long-lasting, pest-specific lures. When a pest brushes a sensitive leaf-trigger, a steel-core piston strikes its skull, killing it instantly. The dead animal drops to the ground and the trap resets immediately. The A24, developed by New Zealand-based Goodnature, is a multi-species kill trap and uses toxin-free lures to target pests like rats and mice. It's suited to outdoor use - in backyards, gardens, farms and orchards – as well as indoors. As it is toxin-free and safe around humans and pets. Here’s how the Goodnature A24 Rodent Trap works:
(1) The rodent is attracted into the A24 trap by the potent long-life rodent lure which remains fresh for one month.
(2) As the rodent brushes past the very sensitive leaf-trigger, the trap is set into action.
(3) A CO2 pressurised piston strikes the rodent’s head killing it instantly and then retracts on a light spring.
(4) The dead rodent falls to the ground and the trap automatically resets itself ready for the next pest to arrive.
