Like Mark says above, when it was plugged in, my dog reacted to it immediately. I tested this by plugging and unplugging it, and it was obvious that the sound of the repellent (not audible to us) was bothering him.
Obtain a one liter plastic water bottle. A similar bottle would work as well, but one liter water bottles are ideal because they are long and narrow, and often have flat sides which allow them to sit undisturbed. You could substitute a two liter bottle as well. Whatever type of bottle you choose, ensure it is transparent and composed of thin, pliable plastic.
Pro Tip: “The Victor Rat Trap M326 is the same trap your Dad used, but it has an extended trigger. On hard services it will pay you to use the Hercules Putty to help hold this Victor Rat Trap in one place. You can also mix some Provoke Rat Attractant with the putty and put it on the trip plate. This helps prevent the rodent from removing the lure without setting off snap of this trap.”
Lay the bottle on its side with the hinge on the table. With a black marker, mark two points on the side of the bottle approximately one centimeter from the place where it has been cut, one on the left side of the cut and one on the right side of the cut. The marks should be located half a centimeter from the top edge of the bottle. Rotate the bottle 180 degrees along its horizontal axis and place symmetrical marks on the other side.

The next day, I awoke to what sounded like an intruder in the kitchen. In actuality, it was a mouse who was trying so violently to escape a glue trap that I mistook him for a living being hundreds of times his size. He took deep, shivering breaths, and every so often he would muster all of his energy and violently thrash in an attempt to free himself.
With each kill, the indicator light on top of the trap blinks green for up to 24 hours, and when the batteries run low or need replacing, the light will blink red. In addition to at-a-glance monitoring, the Victor Electronic Rat Trap offers a hygienic, no-touch, no-see disposal—simply tip to safely dump the dead rodent directly into the trash.
The only thing to remember here would be to make sure you put the top on the bottle before you set the trap, I can see the confusion on your face now followed with a head shake and a, “I can’t believe I did that” statement.
Caught a huge rat the first day!! Really like the food door, making this a no mess trap where you don’t end up with food smeared everywhere. I have even caught a couple of mice in it. Highly recommend.
Bait the trap with a high-protein substance, such as peanut butter, chocolate or hazelnut spread. Place the bait on the metal bait pedal using a Q-Tip, toothpick or another tool to mask your human scent.
Second, cover the entire floor of the mesh cage by a piece of metal plate placed on the bottom of the cage. Then, place some solid food for baiting on the metal plate near the back of the trap. It can be a bit of peanut butter, meat, fruit.
• neighborhood activism: get your neighbors involved, as the problem is very unlikely limited to your property… rats eat dog feces, compost, grille remains, bird seed… and just about anything, but, in our neighborhood, they were feeding (or are still feeding) at a neighbor that does not clean up after their dog and a neighbor composting… and, living at another neighbor that has let their garage and yard go to squaller…. thus, our yard was a traffic route between feeding and nesting. but, it is a city wide problem, as we have learned via nextdoor website for our city… so, neighbor involvement is a must, as you may eliminate them from living or feeding on your or adjacent property, but they will still be in the area and will likely return. if you do not know your neighbors and do not want to do the door-to-door thing, then join nextdoordotcom for your city and post something like “Unwanted Neighbors – Rats!” … this is how we learned that it is a pervasive, city-wide problem and we were both receiving and disseminating information via this site… though i appreciate that most of us no longer “need” neighbors in this era, you do NEED your neighbors as allies in this war!

Sometimes, setting the trap can be a balancing act. We recommend holding the kill bar in place with one finger, holding the metal pedal up with another finger, and latching the end of the arm bar on the metal pedal with your other hand.
Alternatively, you can also use cat’s litter. However, if the rat is infected with toxoplasmosis, it strangely may actually be attracted to cats and cat litter (a very weird side effect of the disease)
PETA often fields calls from people who have discovered small “nontarget” animals hopelessly trapped on these sticky boards. One distraught woman found a glue trap with a bird, two frogs, and a salamander stuck to its surface. All the animals were still alive when she found them but died later, despite her efforts to free them.
I revew the PDF of how to set the trap and I couldn’t understand how to set the bar on the metal pedal mecanism. Do you introduce the bar on the hole in the metal pedal or you try to grab the little nail in it or both. I snap my fingers and I know it will work on a mouse. I learn more on the review that on the PDF panflet.

You are sweating, your heart racing. It’s as if you are set up on one of the biggest Pope & Young whitetails coming in to bow range. All of a sudden, the mouse reaches out, grabs the cheese, steps off the trap, of course looks at you and gives you a wink, then heads on his merry way.
I will as a matter of principle only recommend things on this site if I feel they’re good value. Usually I’ve tried them myself or know and trust someone else who has. In this case, I’ve been using this trap now for well over two years, with excellent results.
Even though they’re widely sold at many retailers, glue traps aren’t safe for consumers, either. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Health Canada caution against their use because animals who are trapped on these devices often void their bowels, potentially exposing anyone who handles the traps to hantavirus—a virus that can be fatal to humans.
The concept here may seem complicated but its actually quite simple. On either side of the trapped door, is two rubber bands pulling at the door which is being held up by the trigger. The trigger is the red twine that runs to the bait in the bottom of the bottle.
You cut a hole out of the top of the shoebox and tape two pieces of paper to form a trap door. We placed a little bit of cracker crumbs on our trapped doors with some peanut butter smeared very lightly to prevent it from weighing the door down and it worked great.

I came across this video a couple years ago while I was living in Baltimore City, Maryland and for as young as the kid may be or sound, he made an almost genius trap that worked great for us at our row home rental. The idea is the shoe box, looks like a shoe box.
Excellent. A little hard to set. Very sensitive. We use a little bread to bait. About 1/4 of the time they eat the bait without springing the guillotine, but still very sensitive. You don’t wanna get ur neck in there because it’s “100%” when you (da cute little creatures) do….Death Penalty 101. I highly recommend. I think those who complain are doing something wrong or getting frustrated in setting them, which takes a little practice.
Simon Mann is a “handy man” to have around the house. Although he was a trained carpenter he went on to become a VP of a construction company. Any pest or DIY problem you may have, he always seems to come up with the right solution.
they where great my fault just a little too large could have done with a size just a little smaller not sure there is such a thing ? they just eat the bait without trap going off as you can see I am a novice thanks
Best of all, glue traps do not use harmful chemicals or poisons to eliminate the rodent problem in your home. Victor® rat glue traps consist of a non-toxic glue to offer a superior hold. For peace of mind, this glue can be safely used anywhere around your home or business – even around food, water, children and pets!
Keep Trapping: The best results for both rodents and insects come from using ultrasonic pest repellents along with trapping. Simply put, the sound waves cause the pests to scurry around, which drives them right into your traps.
Apparently these have been modified into an inferior design. I had a few (I guess) older model mouse traps that were working fine. I bought four more to spread around, not thinking the design would be any different. But these new ones are impossible to keep set, if you can latch the bar at all. Had one snap while I was baiting another one, with nothing triggering it. The second one snapped as I was trying to place it by sliding it ever-so-gently across the smooth floor. Both happened after several attempts at latching, including grabbing some pliers so the bar might stay put. They are going into the trash. I can catch air easily enough without a trap, but I guess it was fun while it lasted. I couldn’t care less about a refund. I’ll consider the price a lesson learned, and cherish my remaining old ones until wild mice are extinct. Anyone know where I can find some more old ones?
Well I used to be one that said they were junk. I have three homes in the country in Illinois. It seems the key is this: Don’t buy the cheapest and there is definately a critical mass issue (you need enough of them). It’s been 3 years now since I “relaunched” them and I can say they can really work if you apply them correctly. You need one per room (two if it is a big room) They must not be blocked by something. Higher works better than lower. Lastly what you will find is that you will see more activity from mice the first week or two because it makes them kind of crazy but by 2-3 weeks they get sick of it and leave. get the ones that send out both an audio signal and one on your electric wires and also get the ones that change the frequency now and then so that nothing can get used to it.
• bait type matters!: we first tried peanut butter with no results on the rats, but it resulted in some very unfortunate collateral damage to other rodents… so, we switched to raw bacon, and, while the other rodents were disinterested, the rats can not resist… and, snap!
Decided to try some traps, guess what !? Spent another $60 for 2 traps in vain. No rats were caught in almost a month, nevertheless rats became less and less shy, sometimes appearing in broad daylight.
We have a couple of cats, only problem is wife feeds them all day long so they will not catch mice/rats. If she isn’t at home for a few days/weeks, I tend to give the cats only a single small meal per day and keep a few outside. Then rats/mice are reduced drastically.
Place the trap in an enticing position. Place it in areas like along a wall or a high-traffic area near a mouse hole. When the mouse enters the bottle to eat the cheese, pull back on the string looped around the skewer sticking out of the bottle’s bottom. The bottle will snap closed on the mouse, trapping it within.
