- Good quality
- Easy to set
Live catch rat trap in good quality, rust protected wire offering high resistance to rust and corrosion.
Drop down door triggered by treadle tray/bait hook. Additional non return entrance point for young rats to enter. Very popular trap used by gamekeepers and professional pest controllers..
Trapping rats is a long established method of rat control. Avoids the use of rat poison and produces the rat live which can then be released a couple of miles away. If you use rat poison within a building there is a risk that the Rat may die in an inaccessible area and the dead rodent smell is not something to be toyed with! Dead rats smell horrible for weeks, so for control of rats indoors we suggest vermin traps or Rat catcher sticky boards. You can also use electronic pest repellers, which although excellent at ridding mice from properties, sometimes struggle to drive out rats.
380mmlong x 170mm high x 180mm wide passivated (rust protected) wire mesh.

Read More. Trigger is set in middle of trap so that any decent sized rat would be half in, half out if the door closed. Triggered gate release has to flip up and over, which makes it difficult to cover the trap [just need to leave sufficient height]. However, caught nothing despite range of baits, including hefty dose of the stuff purchased. Eventually 'modified' the trap so mouse run removed and trigger placed at far end within trap [required longer release lever]. Still caught nothing despite numerous sightings of rodents and wide diversity of baits, including advocated chocolate, cheeses, bacon, chicken, nut and seed pastes. Just made a catapult.||

This is a trap for rats not mice ! These have been around for many of years and made by experts whom have designed this to catch 'rats', there was no need to modify, they work well just how they are. There are no guarantees to catch rats, it can somethimes be tricky getting them in there but pre-baiting would be an option to give them confidence before setting it. Thank you for the feedback.
||The traps were exactly what we had been looking for and we have already caught several rats! Brilliant. Thank you.|
||well made, haven't caught any rats yet though.|
||Works well, caught 2 rats so far, as well as a blackbird and a sparrow, but without hurting them. Rats have a new country home. They seem to like cooked sausage.|
||Easy to set, handle, and dispose of occupants in a humane manner.|
||Easy to set, put it down, caught a rat the same day.|
||Delivered as ordered and as promised|
||Product was very good quality sturdy and well made rat trap|
||Have tried the trap, but so far the rat has proved elusive. However, I know that it works, because, unfortunately, it has trapped a hedgehog and on another occasion, a squirrel. Both released unharmed.|
||Has worked very well|
||Brilliant little trap. Got first rat within 24 hrs of setting it same with the next 2 rats.|
||Have caught two rats, but I think they have seen one of these traps before. However the trap works.|
||Only caught a very distressed blackbird. Will not be using it again.|
||I caught a hedgehog on the first night so haven't used it again. It clearly works but I need to position it somewhere else! The hedgehog is fine.|
||Good, firm trap but some use instructions would be useful. Rats have managed to move the trap and steal the food without being caught. Caught 1 blackbird though... Not sure what to do about Rats now. Any advice? I may have to use poisen but I have hens & free range guineapigs in garden.|
Exellent quality, just what I was looking for.
Definitely would recommend one.
