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

An excellent possum trap

I've had 8 humane kills in the three weeks I've had the trap, so am very pleased with its performance. It's simple, easy to operate, and easily relocated to the base of a different tree. Use blaze (flour, icing sugar, milk powder & cinnamon) to lead the possums to the trap, bait it with a smallish piece of apple, and if there are possums in the area, you'll get them. Recommended.
Yes it works!

Works well and rural delivery was no problem. Recommend it to a friend in Wanganui and they got 5 possums in first five days.

Best bait for possums is sliced apple with cinnamon sprinkled on it.

Purchased this kill trap & the first night it was set it caught a Possum, so it really does work & we are very very pleased with our purchase. It’s a very sturdy design with an extremely strong spring loaded mechanism & I imagine it will be good to go for years

I purchased two traps, work ok , have trouble with the birds stealing bait during the day though and not a real fast kill on bigger possums

All ready to go. As yet haven't had a possum testing the trap but all set to go. A neighbour has been using hers for over 20 years very successfully.

We have not caught anything with our new Timms but our other old Timms has caught 11 possums in last 3 weeks, the new one is in a different orchard and fruit not ripe yet. Living in semi rural area there is still plenty to catch and we plant them under the trees they damage as slow release fertiliser - giving or playing it forward !! This is an excellent design and is quick and humane.
These are the best if you have a possum problem

Excellent - Four possums and a fat in first five nights! No more running on our roof and a few more caught over next two weeks. These traps are brilliant - just some Apple & cinnamon sprinkled around. Paid in kind! Highly recommended.

Recently purchased two Timms traps and set them up on our small lifestyle block amongst trees complete with apple, flour and cinnamon. Caught two large possums on the third night. Very happy with their performance.

Timms possom traps
about 1 year ago2019-04-13T17:32:32+00:00
Recently bought two to join with what I have here. Firstly they are safe with the animals (cats and chickens) I have here. They are so easy to use and can be seen from far off so saving time. I will be buying more as the seasons evolve too, and lastly they are very hardy and hard wearing. An excellent product which I recommend.

Works well, already two down. Fast delivery

These work OK but are a bit hit and miss with the bait able to be "slipped" off the spike by the possums without setting off the trap, have tried to "fix" the piece of apple but often the bait is gone and the trap has not sprung. When it works it's great but I'm still trying to get a better "hit" rate.
