Flipping Timmy Trial We have been trialling a new way of mounting Timms traps which when mounted sideways on a tree on a plastic base is called a Flipping Timmy. Our three month trial has shown that this method of mounting hasn't attracted one possum so we will continue with the Timms traps mounted on the ground as this has proved very effective. Put another way the trial was 'flipping awful!! Many thanks for all your phone calls when pests are spotted. It means we can get a trap to where it was sighted immediately and has greatly expanded the area where we place traps. Cheers Russell Shaw, Omori/Kuratau Trapping Co-ordinator 180 Omori Road.
