Determining the presence and movement patterns of small mammals in a specific area can be labour intensive, time consuming and costly. Wild Spy's RFID tunnel combines RFID detection with high quality camera trapping, for an automated data collection system in a field proven and cost efficient format.
Once RFID-tagged animals move within the device, the unique ID is recorded along with a date and time stamp, this data is then stored on board for later retrieval or can be sent via remote upload in an email to the researcher. The tunnel is perfect for use in conjunction with baits and scents, and a trail camera can easily be integrated into the housing for visual identification.
