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

Are these easy to mount on a tree?
Yes they can be mounted directly or you could make a simple wooden platform (that you mount to the tree) and the trap can sit on the platform so it's not permanently fixed.

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?
