Quick and humane, traditional wood-based Rat Trap with a treadle-style bait platform based on the Little Nipper wooden mousetrap design. One of the most powerful available, due to its strong spring mechanism. Trap is triggered without the bait being taken.

"I purchased these for my 92 year old father-in-law who is being plagued by rats in his back garden. Having paid the council £60 to put poison out which was a complete waste of money we decided to give these a go for him after reading the great reviews. We picked up the order on Thursday afternoon and set them up.......Bingo! He rang us Thursday evening to say he had caught his first victim. Obviously then first impressions are great and especially for such a low price."

"Cleaner and easier to set than the traditional wood and metal versions. Also easier to release the dead rodent and reset."

dont use peanut butter

"Instruction says not to arm the trap for at least a week. They recommend putting food daily on the trap. So rat(s) get used to it, as rats are weary of new things.
Everyone's situation is different. I could hear lots of noise behind walls. Was unsure if it was mice, rats, bird or squirrel. The pest had come via the roof.
Try to locate the droppings, if you can. For instance, I had to remove bath panel. Look for pipe work (as the hold may be big enough to squeeze through).
If you find dropping, both rat and squirrel look similar (to a novice). Rats generally active at night. Whilst squirrels active in the day (depending on species). So this helped narrow it down. Try to figure out when you can hear a noise.
Mice have tiny droppings (similar size to uncooked rice grains), whilst rats and squirrel droppings are bigger.
If you are not sure if you have rats or a squirrel accidental, you could put sand and check footprints.
For me the rat droppings where behind a wall. Very hard to drop the trap, as you need two hands. plus you have to put the bait.
You have to put it 90 degree to wall. Food side to wall.
You need to put trap where there is evidence of droppings. Also, somewhere you can easily access it, if the rat is caught.
My big problem, is that I put my hand through small access panell. I set the trap, but it kept going off as I was tring to place it. Not so good for tight space where you cant use two hands. Had a few lucky espaces with the trap.... not so great if you bleed on it...
Day 1
--------
I did not have luxury of waiting one week. As the rat(s) had come through voids in the buildings and I did not want them to spread to bedrooms. Yuk. Rats will attack the fabric of the building. They will chew through wood, plastic, insulation, cement...
Trap #1 put peanut butter, but next day noticed, the rat only took a small nibble, but not enough to set off the trap. May be it did not like the peanut button or it was very clever rat.
Trap #2, I did not arm it (as per instruction), but there not enough bait but it did not eat anything (or could have places in wrong area).
Day 2
-------
I was trying to top up the peanut butter, but I just could not set it the trap. The trap kept going off. The oil from peanut butter made metal slippery. I would not recommend peanut butter (it was a slightly running version). The instructions recommend bits of meat or chicken.
(one web sites say use spatula so as not to get scent onto food)
Other points
-----------------
You really need two hands to set the trap....
Looks strong. Well Made and tough.
The product is re-useable, but I doubt I would want to use it again...."
