Millmerran Landcare Group Trap Demonstration
The Millmerran Landcare Group recently took delivery of their second M.I.N.E.™ Feral Pig Trap Essential Kits along with some with 16-56™ Trap Panels and hosted a practical demonstration/set up session with Principal Environmental Scientist, Nigel Kimball during a group field day at Punches Creek.
A thoroughly enjoyable and very practical exercise was enjoyed by the 20 odd participants who were eager to find out more about how the trapping system worked and what tips and tricks could be employed to boost their chances of capture success.
Please note demonstrations are generally provided free of charge in conjunction with purchase deliveries and workshops are generally subject to fee to cover the cost of time, travel, consumables and accommodation if necessary, and are not linked to a purchase.
Control Box & Camera Solar Power Kits Proving Popular
Made by Yarramine Environmental and designed to specifically provide a long term power solution for the JAGER PRO camera range and M.I.N.E.™ Gate Control Box, these pre-wired solar power kits we introduced in November last year are proving very popular. Kits includes:
Pro Tip #2 - Fixing Grey or Streaked Photos
Since out last newsletter we have had a couple of customers exeperience issues with recieving grey or streaked images as well as what appeared to be a malfunctioning PIR motion sensor on thier I.C.E.™ Cam.
In both cases the cause of the issue was a corrupt SD Card or SD Card that had been used without being formatted first, and the cameras were unable properly write photos taken to the SD Card and then transmit them across the network.
What generally starts out as a portion of the photo grayed out until eventually the entire screen looks like an old TV screen with no signal, is a sign that the SD Card is corrupt or needs formatting.
If this issue is left long enough it is then the camera is liklery to not be able to save any photo at all and hence not transmit - making it appear as if the PIR sensor is not working.
To fix these issues, the next time you are at your camera, turn it off, then back onto setup. Press menu and right arrow 2 times to access the system tab, and then the down arrow 4 times and highlight format, press OK then left arrow to highlight yes and press OK again.
This action will format your SD Card and in doing so delete all the photos and clear it out. If you find this does not work then you will need to SD Card in your camera.
To prevent these issues is to format the SD card during initial setup. If you happen to notice any one of these while your camera is taking photos, get out there as quickly as possible to format or replace the SD card in your camera.
Upcoming Bulk Shipment of Flexi 18-60™ Trap Panels
At present we have enroute from the US a bulk shipment of Flexi 18-60™ Trap Panels to replace out dwindling stocks of 16-56™ Trap Panels in our wharehouse. The savings from this bulk shipment, expected to arrive by the end of August 2017, will allow us to pass on to customers a substantially reduce price for these new panels - just $90.00 per panel inc GST.
As you might suspect given the different descriptor, the dimensions of these new panels will differ slightly to the existing 16-56™ Trap Panels. They are slightly taller (1524mm as opposed to 1400mm), still 16ft (4875mm) long and made from slightly thinner galvanised rods (5.56mm as opposed to 6.3mm), and of course still contain the graduations at the bottom to hold in juvenile pigs.
In addition, we our also just about to embark on the manufacture of our new 8ft long Rigid 18-60™ Trap Panels due to calls from customers for an additional enclosure option that is easier to deploy and transport. These galvanised rigid panels will be secured together with lugs and pins and we will be recommending 12 are used to construct a standard sized trap for pigs. Stay tuned for pricing and availability date over the coming months. A variation of the M.I.N.E.™ Pig Gate with lugs will also be introduced at this stage.
