Deleting Supplementary traps

Supplementary traps are essentially double traps, therefore when making the decision to delete a supplementary trap you need to consider the following options.


  1. Delete the supplementary trap. You will first have to delete the records associated with the supplementary trap, no longer making them available for any historic data
  2. Remove the double trap, retiring it as above then replace it with a single installation to continue to collect records from that site, and still have the original installation records available for historical data
  3. Remove the double trap entirely and retire the installation. This will keep the records for this installation with the site.

Deleting a supplementary trap is completed on the trap.NZ website
