The old saying goes; invent a better mouse-trap and the world will beat a path to your door.
Professional Pest Manager has not heard any recent reports of doors being broken down in New Zealand, but we suspect Kiwi, David Wells, may have reinforced the hinges and locks on his front door.
Nooski Trap Systems co-founder David Wells said the company shipped 17,000 of the New Zealand made traps, which retail overseas for about $25, to Indonesia alone in the past year.
They are sold in more than a dozen countries in all, with sales highest in the United States and Australia. Nooski also makes a smaller mouse trap that retails for about $10 – $15.
The all-plastic traps release a latex rubber ring that crushes and suffocates rodents so they die nearby in 10 to 20 seconds.
These traps are a great alternative for those looking for a more environmentally friendly solution to their pest problems.
