I think the most effective electric rat trap for a country house in particular is Hoont Robust. I used it in my country houses and it worked trouble-free, and you only need to dispose of the dead bodies, so try it.
A few days after the baited traps have been discovered, set the traps and kill your rats en masse. This will seriously reduce their population, possibly to the point where they won’t be able to repopulate. At the very least, these rodents will shy away from your property!
To celebrate our 50 episode, we spent some time with one of the most recognized and respected pest professionals on the planet. Jerry Schappert talks with us about his early blogging days, books, pest control business, and his super successful online community.

I put a bit of peanut butter on the center plastic bit and put this under my drawer. Finally caught the mouse that’s been running around my house for weeks! We haven’t found out where it comes in from, but at least we know that we can catch them! Thank you for these awesome traps! My brother and I took it to the next town over and released it in front of the forest. The little fellow couldn’t wriggle off. We used dishwasher soap and some water to set it free. No more rat poo around the house! Mom finally relieved. No more skittering noises in the night! Adios, El Magnifico!
Unfortunately, I never knew just how inhumane glue traps are until I actually used one. Now, I know that there are many reasons never to use glue traps in your home. Not only do they cause slow and agonizing deaths for the animals they trap, they can also be dangerous to humans and animal companions.
Rats. It’s a chilling thought. Could a home as nice as yours have rats in it? You don’t always see them, but they leave clear signs. You might start noticing droppings in the pantry, grease marks on the baseboards, or chew marks in food packaging. First of all, don’t feel overwhelmed. Tomcat can help you deal with the problem.
I worry it might be female and have nest there too. I have LOTS of yarn and need to catch the sucker before I go in to check all the yarn. Can’t imagine to be there with live critter. I even packed towel under the door so he can’t get out.
Consider ‘pre-baiting’ the trap. Pre-baiting is when the traps are baited but not set. Rodents can come up and eat the bait and get used to the trap. After the bait has been taken 2 or 3 times, then the trap is again baited but this time is set. The rodent will already be used to the trap and walk right onto it.
Mice reproduce fast and furiously – they can produce six to seven babies in a litter as quickly as every 21 days or so. So you may not realize (or want to think about!) how many of them are in your house, but you can be almost certain there are more than one. To stop an invasion of mice, you need more than a few mouse traps to eliminate the problem quickly. The most effective strategy is to place one mouse trap every 2 to 3 feet along the wall where you’ve seen signs of activity. In the highest-trafficked areas, set mouse traps in pairs as close as an inch apart.
It has over 2700 customer’s reviews on Amazon.com that includes a very helpful ones for the following users of it. First, don’t overbait thе trap because a big dose of a peanut butter or other stuff can lead to the trap’ zapping the bait and de-activates then. Also, users think it’s better to use sun flower seed butter or dog food than a peanut butter. Rodents’ tastes differ as humans.
We apologize for the experience and would be happy to assist. This trap has both a sensitive and a firm setting. We recommend putting the trap in place on the floor before setting it. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for further assistance.
The thought of using a wide-mouth bucket to increase the distance to the bait wheel occurred to me early on in this epic battle. But due to my obsession with destroying Ratzilla’s posse in a timely manner, I had no time to waste. I wanted them dead. Now!
I just purchased the electronic pest repeller and i only saw one roach so far and I just put them in two days ago. But my daughter says she can hear it, it said on the box that us humans cant hear it. So why is she hearing it?
Also be sure to keep these traps securely out of the reach of children and pets. You may need to disable and remove them during the day if children and pets are in the area. The trap can also be covered with a large box (make sure there’s enough space above the trap to allow it to snap) with holes cut into either end. The holes must be large enough for the rodent to enter freely. The trap needs to be placed far enough into the box so that a curious child’s arm or an inquisitive paw cannot reach the trap.
Be sure to wear rubber gloves when disposing of a dead rodent. Try to avoid touching the body. Take the trap outside and hold it over an outdoor garbage bin. Pull back the snap rod and let the body drop right into a plastic bag in the garbage. You can then wash the trap with soap and hot water and re-set it.
You can use victor brand traps, their performance is satisfying enough and they prove good value for money, as mentioned above. You can also test a rodent terminator trap which costs about $40 (not much cheaper than victor trap); its effectiveness is nearly the same. As for the expensive one, you can invest into Raticator Max. This trap uses infrared detection, i.e. it is only activated once the rodent is inside. You can also use live rat traps which are suitable for those who are not in favor of lethal methods.

I have found a much better bait than peanut butter . . . Tootsie Rolls. Just moisten them in your mouth and place a portion on the trap. You will catch several mice/rats before you need to add more bait. Give this a try.
Mice are naturally wary of new objects in the areas they frequent. You can acclimate them by putting out baited but unset mouse traps for a few days, whether you are using classic snap mouse traps, electronic mouse traps, or live traps. Once you see the mice taking the mouse trap bait, you know that the mouse traps are in the right place and that the pests will return to them. Then it’s time to set the mouse traps.
Trapper T-Rex Rat Snap Trap – The Trapper T-Rex Rat trap works very well at capturing rats while not being of any immediate danger to older children or pets. If they happen to trip the trap, it generally scares them while not doing any real damage to tiny fingers.
According to the University of Florida, Traps are effective usually when dealing with small numbers of rats or mice. When rats are plentiful or where unsanitary conditions exist with harborage, poisoned baits is an effective tool to use together with trapping. Read Best rat and mouse poison baits Review.
There is an easy way to remove the glue. The antidote is a product that fortunately is available in every home – cooking oil. Many consumers already know that you can use cooking oil to dissolve chewing gum or the glue on those pesky store price stickers. It’s the same principle here…oil dissolves glue.
As a pest control technician , I could confirm that these products work perfectly for catching all forms of rats; whether they are babies or adults. In California where I work at, we have issues with roof and Norwegian rats and I could say that I haven’t had any issues with them. At times it can get messy but they are a clean and effective snap trap. Well done Victor and I hope my company continues to buy from you.
2) Does the sight of live mice disgust you? With Multiple Catch traps you’ll have to physically remove the trap from your house and take it to a place where you want to release the mice. If the sight of mice scurrying around is not your cup of tea, then these things may not be the option for you. Although, this mouse trap has been incredibly popular amongst people that are actively involved with animal rights groups and it has been effective in catching the little pests in your home. As long as you follow the instructions for the live traps then you should have no problems using it and making sure that the little ones do not escape from you.
Consider moving the mouse traps to another location where you have mouse activity. If setting up your mouse traps directly next to the high traffic areas is not working, try setting up the traps adjacent to or just a bit away from these high traffic areas.
Be sure to thoroughly clean the snap traps between uses. Rats will smell “death” on a trap that’s recently killed another rat. I have the black plastic snap traps. After removing the dead rat (triple wrapped in plastic and put in the deep freeze until garbage day), I drop the trap into a bucket with about a litre of very hot water and some bleach; soak for a few hours, scrub with a brush and then, if you want, rewash it (I actually put mine in the dishwasher, after a thorough bleaching and scrubbing). It should just smell like clean plastic when it comes out of the dishwasher. Re-bait it, put it where the rats are active, let it do its thing, and repeat! 🙂 I am sorry that I have to kill these buggers, but if they’re in my house, they need to be killed. My house is 108 years old and has all kinds of secret places for rodents to come and go, but this year (2016), here on Vancouver Island, there is a huge rat problem so I’ve become very cutthroat about killing them.
