Building a Better Mousetrap Without Poison, Glue or Snapping [VIDEO]

The Goodnature A24 self-resetting trap is now available in the U.S. Designed by the Automatic Trap Company. The A24 uses an innovative and humane pest trapping technology.

Automatic Trap Company president Blair Calder, who comes from a ranching and farming background, says the A24 fills a need for alternatives for farmers aside from dangerous rat poisons, cruel glue traps, and ineffective snap traps.

The Goodnature A24 Rodent Trap works by attracting the rat or mouse into the trap with a potent long-life rat lure, which remains fresh for one month. As the rodent brushes past the very sensitive leaf-trigger, the trap sets into action. A CO2 pressurized piston strikes the rodent’s head killing it instantly and then retracts on a light spring. The dead rodent falls to the ground, and the trap automatically resets itself ready for the next rodent to arrive.

“Because of the A24’s ingenious design, once the piston is triggered, it strikes in less than one-tenth of a second, killing pests instantly before it automatically resets. The lures are also poison-free meaning there’s no risk of secondary poisoning to children, livestock, pets or wildlife.”

Winner of numerous design awards, Goodnature’s traps have aided conservation efforts around the world and have helped save millions of dollars in damages caused by rodents. Due to their self-resetting nature, traps can go as long as six months without needing to be checked reducing the labor involved in pest control by up to 70%. They’re non-toxic and certified humane in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and Europe.

“The A24 has proved effective around the world because they self-reset and can kill up to 24 times before needing to be reloaded. I’m pleased to be able to bring these to the U.S,” Calder says.
