Grafton has a chance to significantly reduce pests such as mice and rats. This will protect our birds, plants, reptiles and native insects as well as keep our homes free of vermin.
We can do this by installing pest traps through-out Grafton using distance and trapping guidelines prepared by the Department of Conservation.
The good news is that we already have the traps and the boxes. They’ve been kindly donated to our community by the Council and are nearly ready to go… after a little bit of art is added by some handy volunteers.
This is where you come in. Now is your chance to get involved and unleash your creativity. Or if you’re not so arty – maybe you can help us install and monitor the traps. Please read on.
