By having these rat traps baited with Provoke Rat Attractant , Pro-Pest Professional Lures, or peanut butter in unset traps, a large population would be use to feeding on around the traps. When the rat traps are then simultaneously set after a while of this “feeding”, a large kill can be obtained.
Here’s all the proof you need to know that you CAN handle a rat problem on a low budget. Multi-catch to single-catch—from rats, to mice, or even other rodents, you can create the perfect trap using items that you probably already have on hand.
Folks, Do as I say… Find, Bengal Roach Spray. It’s made in Baton Rouge,LA, I believe. Spray it near your doors inside and out and trust me, after they crawl out to die, that’s the last you will see for months. It’s odorless. Matter of fact, it’s so odor free, I wasn’t even sure if it was actually spraying.
A: Individuals in a rodent population search for different types of food. For mice, anything high in protein like peanut butter, chocolate or hazelnut spread is a great option. Also, nesting materials like dental floss, cotton or string are also great options. Try to use whatever bait or nesting material the rodents are currently feeding on or using to build nests.
When I finally succeeded in my task, a battered and disheveled mouse, with missing clumps of fur, limped off into the night. Many trapped animals end up breaking or chewing off their own limbs in their struggle for freedom.
Rats are smart and they are inherently cautious. Kill as many as you can at once before they get wise to your plans. If the rats figure out how to avoid the traps then you will need to switch to poisons.
Glue traps never work to keep rodents away in the long run, and their use will actually backfire. This is because when animals are killed or otherwise removed, the resultant spike in the food supply causes accelerated breeding among survivors and newcomers—and this means increased populations. The only surefire way to keep mice and other animals out of your house is to make it less inviting to them.
Set the Trap – Place the arm bar over the kill bar and secure it under the plastic pedal. Take note of the Firm and Sensitive setting. The trap will be easier to set on the firm side, but not trip as easy. The trap will be more difficult to set on the sensitive side, but trip very easily.

Say you’ve got an infestation on your hands and need something that’ll work overtime while you sleep. Multi-catch options are the way to go, but rather than purchase one of the expensive products on the market today, you can make a brilliant trap at home using items that you already have. This one’s main ingredient? A bucket. You know the bucket. Your dog’s played with it. Your tools have sat in it. It’s been used to catch water leaks and trash. Now it’s time to catch rats with it, and after you try this, we won’t be surprised if you never buy a traditional trap again.
The concept here is that the larger end of the plate, the side without the bait on it, is being held by the buckets edge, to give the mouse support enough to walk onto the plate and make it’s way to the bait.
But you’d better know that sticky rodent traps are inhumane, because trapped animals usually suffer and cry for many hours before death from dehydration or stress. So we suggest you check your glue traps very often or use other traps.
It is a stinky process but one of the best ways to prevent these rodents. Take some cow dung cakes and spread them in your attic or garden. When rats eat the cow dung, it will inflame their stomach and lead them to die. Thus, helps get rid of rats outside the house.
Removable Lid Ensures Easy Cleaning The sleek industrial design boasts a removable lid, providing convenient access to the trigger plates so you can easily clean it in between uses. Once a catch is made, power off the trap and remove the lid. Then simply dispose of the dead rodent in the trash without ever having to touch it!
Glue traps are dangerous to human health—in fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Health Canada caution against their use! Animals who are trapped on these devices often void their bowels, potentially exposing anyone who handles the traps to hantavirus.
When baiting the trap, it is important to remember a little goes a long way. We recommend using a toothpick amount of peanut butter. Also, the traps should be placed against the wall where rodents primarily travel. The end of the trap where the
We’ve had a mice problem for years, tried traps which work but I hate emptying them. Also had a problem in the garage, mice put grass seed in the car’s air filter. I bought two of the small plug in ultasonic and put them in the garage, no clue if they work yet. Then one in the bedroom where I could hear them scratching about at night and early morning up in the attic (where I cannot get to). The first night heard the mice for a few minutes, then nothing. The second night heard them for a few seconds then nothing since and it’s been 3 weeks. I’ve since plugged 4 into the basement to cover all walls and no mice have been caught in the traps and can’t see any evidence they’ve been there. As far as I’m concerned they work, tho for how long, don’t know.
put one in the barn next to feed barrels it was sad it caught a bird instead. the trap worked fine though. due to the size of the trap being so large it might be a problem for small animals you are not wanting to trap. i think i’ll just use the smaller traps for everything.

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!
They are easy to set up. I am not sure if “love” is the right way to describe how I feel about using these, but they certainly work great. We have had mice getting into our garage and these traps keep catching them. We put some poison stations right near them so the mice have to go across the glue pad first. We have also caught other insects like crickets, so they are multi-purpose. I will probably be ordering more of these to keep using year round because they do exactly what they promise.
I live on the 4th floor in single bed flat in london. I own a cat. About 14 days ago I watched a medium sized rat with a foot of tail walk across my living room floor at about 2am. The cat decided to ignore it, I think she sensed it was not worth the bother. It has been living in my kitchen sink unit . . . Last time, I poisoned a rat it was so traumatic for both of us I made a vow never to use it again. I decided to go for the trad larger spring mouse trap design . . It is supposed to break the neck instantly. . . the rat was too quick for it or it just nibbled the bait away.
Thank you for posting this information. I wish people would see rats and all animals, as living beings and place themselves in the place of the animal, before they consider harming it. I may be biased about rats and there is a “Big” difference between a domesticated rat and a wild one. I have or “had” 3 rats. I have 2 males that live inside, in a 6′ tall cage that I built for them. My two boys have wanted every kind of pet one can think of and as wth most kids, they soon lose their attraction and stop caring for them as they once did. Of course, I make my boys spend time with and care for their pets; however, I am the one who ends up really attatched to them and spending most of the time interacting with them. My rats, actually, have a following on Facebook and Youtube. They are two of the cleanest, loving, funny, intelligent critters I have ever owned. I, also, have 4 dogs: 3 of which I adopted thru my work with rescue organizations. I intened to foster them, until they were adopted, but, they were such cute puppies, my family fell in love and we kept them. My oldest dog is 15 and is blind. The other three, all grown now, watch over him and lead him around, when we go out to the ranch, where they can run free, with no harness or leash attached. The three of them are females and they treat the rats as if they were they offspring. I have to get the rats out, every evening, so the dogs can groom them and make sure they are okay. One of the dogs takes food and leaves it at the door of their cage. It’s a daily ritual that she goes thru. You can count on their being food at the door, each time you check the rats. We feed the rats left-over food and I buy them corn-on-the-cobb, which they love. The funny thing is, they are cleaner than my kids. After they eat their corn, they place the cobb in their litter box, as they do all their trash. People don’t realize that rats figured the sanitation thing out long before humans. I guess that’s why they have been so successful, as a species.
Do you know the best way to catch rats using a sticky trap? Try to put some bait (peanut butter or bacon) on the floor inside a circle of sticky tape. That way they have to cross the sticky tape to get to the food – it works!
I tested one by setting it up and triggering it with a stick. It broke after triggering 2 times. The 2nd one broke while I was pulling back the kill bar to set it up. The 3rd one almost broke while pulling back the kill bar, but I stopped pulling on it to avoid breaking it. It seems like the loop of the kill bar on the right would come off the horizontal bar easily, causing the spring to become dislodged. See the attached photos.
A huge drawback to the use of rat poison traps is the likelihood that the rat will crawl off to its nest (usually inside walls or other inaccessible places) to die, which leaves a secondary problem with the odor of decomposition. Another consequence of this, odor aside, is that fleas and mites will immediately abandon the body of a dead rat, and can establish themselves within the house or office. Since the fleas of rats are known disease vectors, one pest is replaced by another which may be equally as dangerous.
A. Mice trapped on a glue board or glue tray seldom live long enough for you to find them alive. They have very fast metabolisms and need to eat nearly all the time. They expire from lack of energy in at most a few hours.
in 2005 I bought a new Acura. Rat damage to the wiring cost $1,500 to repair. I placed a Victor ultrasonic repeller under each (2 cars) engine ( replacing with a new unit about every 4 years). No problems until a month ago- our 2015 Subaru had $2,300 worth of damage to the wiring. Checked the repeller- the light was working, but no sound. (The other still works, no damage.) Replaced the defective unit. They work, but must be loud and close.
