Mustelid and rodent control

The day will address the legal aspects of the various methods of stoat, weasel and rodent control employed by keepers as well as the equipment required and best practice advice. The topics covered will be:

  • Tunnel trapping for stoats and weasels
  • Trapping rats
  • Trapping grey squirrels and mink
  • Tracking and calling stoats.

The day will involve an indoor session addressing topics such as the legal framework, whilst the outdoor session will look at best practice with demonstrations of fieldcraft and some handy tips.
