Retiring an installation via the trap.NZ website

Retiring an installation

Retiring an installation is used when you are no longer wanting an installation in its current position. 

When you’re moving an installation it’s important to remember that the records stay with the installation, not the site (unless the installation is being moved a large distance then they will retire to the original site). To ensure that your records correctly report the information for that particular site you should retire them. 

The following retire instructions apply for all installation types - Traps, Bait stations, and Monitoring stations. Points of interest have a time expiration so are not included.

Installations can be made active again using the same procedure.
