Product overview

The Timms traps has been available for at least 30 years as a possum kill trap and has become a household name in New Zealand.

The trap is a yellow plastic box with a hole in the front that the possum puts its head into to access the bait. Inside the box is a spring loaded bar that strikes the possum under the chin when it sets off the trap. This cuts off the possums wind-pipe so that the possum becomes unconcious and then dies from lack of oxygen.

Setting the trap is easily achieved by pulling a string located at the back of the trap. The trap can be baited with a slice of apple or our Pestoff Possum Bait

• Suitable for orchard and lifestyle blocks
• Robust, simple and highly visible yellow plastic design
• Easily set by simply pulling cord at rear of trap
• Bait with a slice of apple
• Can be placed on ground, trees, roofs or almost anywhere (but be careful with domestic pets!)

Size: W 16cm x D 18cm x H 26cm
Weight: 1kg

Really ??? feral cats. Got three possums last nite with just apple. My husband passed away recently and he shot the feral cats and the rabbits so were reasonably controlled Now here I am 75 female all the rifles gone to the grandson whom is 300km away. Would i bait the trap some steak? Now Rabbits I bought some poison stations every night 6 cups of rabbit bait it cost more for that then for me to eat.
That sounds frustrating! Yes they can be used - Effective baits include: 1. fresh or salted rabbit, hare, or possum 2. fresh/frozen/salted fish 3. dehydrated meat baits

If the trap is a bit stiff to go off, is their a way to Tweek them. Have caught 22possums in a row then two nights of bait gone and trap not gone off?
Not generally unless there is a specific issue - perhaps the possums are getting smarter!? You could try securing the bait using a rubber band?

Great for catching Possum

This trap allows you to kill possums with ease. We have trapped 13 at the back of our company buildings. Very easy to use Once killed dig a hole reset the trap and the possum falls into the hole. No need to touch it
