Non Toxin Approach

FPC's management and methods

FPC will be managed by professional trapping and eradication experts and research by management and development will be key drivers of FPC.

The area chosen for this project has been considered for its ability to provide a cost-effective proposition for eradication using the lands natural boundaries to mitigate re-invasion.

It is FPC's intention to employ the non-toxin Goodnature brand of self resetting traps to accomplish FPC's non-toxin approach to eradicate the rats, possums and stoats. There are proven significant scientific trials achieving zero population of rodents within three months and continued zero population after six months employing the Goodnature trapping technology in New Zealand and overseas. The life expectancy of the Goodnature self-re-setting traps is ten years with five years guaranteed mechanical replacement.
