The base of this snap trap is made from Forest Stewardship Council-sourced wood harvested from environmentally-monitored forests. The wood has been kiln dried and will not warp. The traps metal pedal has four releases for greater success in catching rats. The trap has a copper-steel wire bow. Two springs are oil-tempered for efficiency.
For best results, bait the trap with a sticky substance. Rats are fond of peanut butter, fruit, meat, and cereal. Using several traps and placing them three feet apart in the rats foot path increases the chances of success. After catching a rat, Victor advises users to throw out the trap. For help setting the trap, keeping pets away from traps, and other pest control advice consult the Victor Web site. This item measures 6-13/16 by 3-7/16 inches, and weighs 1 pound. --Jessica Reuling

With over one billion sold, the Victor metal pedal rat trap is the go-to trap for home owners. The effective trap offers a simple, straightforward design and instant results when it comes to rodent control.
Victor metal pedal rat traps are proudly constructed in the USA by Victor, a century-old brand and trusted industry leader. Even more, each trap features a platform made from environmentally responsible wood that’s been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC is an organization that helps ensure forests worldwide are responsibly managed).
Set the baited trap in areas where activity has been noticed or on the floor with the bait end flush against the wall. Rodents tend to travel along the wall, so placement in this location often works best. For maximum effectiveness use multiple traps to increase results. After a successful kill, simply lift the metal kill bar, dispose of the body, and reset. The reusable (or disposable) trap can be utilized anywhere in or around the home, and it doesn't require any chemicals or poisons, so it’s safe around children and pets (use with caution).
Bait the trap by placing peanut butter or something similar on the metal bait pedal (use a Q-tip or toothpick to avoid leaving your scent). Then pull the kill bar back, and swing the arm bar over the kill bar. After latching the bent end of the arm bar into the notch on the metal pedal, slowly release pressure until the arm bar holds the kill bar securely in place. At the slightest little nibble, the metal bait pedal releases the kill bar, snapping the trap closed for an instant kill.

I use peanut butter in my traps. Living out in the country I have gophers, mice, and an assortment of rats which did considerable damage to the fuel injectors on my truck. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Allara

Awesome for catching chipmunks outside. But be careful, a victor rat trap with peanut butter on it will also catch Cardinals (red birds). Read morePublished 28 days ago by catcher

After all these years this is still the best rat trap. This trap has the metal bait holder, which has provided far more kills than the trap with the yellow plastic bait holder. Read morePublished 2 months ago by RSL1
