Vermin traps The usual way to deal with vermin is to fight it with poison or traps, both usually fatal. Bas Kamp has designed a set of five traps which offer the user a choice: death or live removal. The most animal-friendly option is to check the traps regularly and relocate the live vermin – give them a new home outside your own. If you wish to terminate their life cycle, there are two options: the trapped vermin can be eaten by a natural enemy, or killed without the use of any poisonous substance so that they can be absorbed by nature.
