Can I record ad-hoc kills on Trap.NZ?
In the event that a pest is killed by something other than a trap (e.g. roadkill, killed by cat/dog/firearm etc.), it can be useful to record this data as part of your project.
Currently, there's no direct way of recording these in Trap.NZ, but clever folks have found a way around it.
To record ad-hoc kills on Trap.NZ
- Create a trap in your project (anywhere in your project is fine)
- Call it something like "cat" or "dog" or "firearm" or "ad-hoc" etc.
- Give it trap type "Unspecified"
- Record "catches" on that trap
If you want to record multiple kills on this trap, you can do this on the website by changing the "Strike" count field.
