The following table shows whether or not a trap has passed the NAWAC guidelines for trapping animals. You can use this information to help you select your traps.
The tests relate to the welfare performance of the traps, not to their capture efficiency, safety, costs, or target specificity.
To test humaneness, NAWAC sets thresholds for injuries for live traps, and time limits for an animal to become 'irreversibly unconscious' in kill traps. You can learn more about how NAWAC performs its humaneness assessments in their welfare guidelines for traps:
