The ZIP Auto-Lure is a robust tool that can be used in a range of situations. The ZIP Auto-Lure dispenses a preset amount of fresh lure (mayonnaise, peanut butter, or either of these paired with a biomarker) for up to one year without requiring manual service.
The ZIP Auto-Lure can be used as:
A lure for traps. With a small modification to trap-box lids, the ZIP Auto-Lure can be used to keep traps freshly lured for up to one year without the need for labour-intensive manual servicing.
A prefeeding tool. The ZIP Auto-Lure can be used to train animals to recognise a lure as safe, before they encounter it inside a trap box. This can increase the effectiveness of trapping operations by as much as 50%.
A highly sensitive detection device. When paired with a trail camera, the ZIP Auto-Lure can be used to attract possums, rats and stoats to cameras, and encourages repeat visits by providing a food ‘reward’.
A biomarking tool. A biomarker can be added to the lure, and used by researchers to monitor the movement of rats and/or stoats through the landscape. The biomarker stains the face and gut of rats and stoats that have eaten it, and appears as a fluorescent glow when viewed under a UV light.
Each unit comes with a 2-year warranty, and consists of:
Stainless Steel Chassis
Replaceable lure canister, containing your choice of lure (peanut butter or mayonnaise, with or without rhodamine B biomarker)
Two Tek driver bits and an Installation Guide will be included along with every 50 units purchased. Replacement lure canisters can be purchased from ZIP as required.
