The original wood-based wire snap trap, the Victor® Metal Pedal Rat Trap provides instant rodent control and is safe for household use. Trusted to control rats for over 100 years, this trap allows for clean and quick trapping - ideal for maximum rodent. Once a rodent triggers the metal petal, the trap immediately springs closed to eliminate the pest on contact. It can then be easily disposed of for quick and clean removal.
The most common trapping mistake is using of too few traps. For only a couple of rats, a dozen traps are not too many. For severe rat infestations, traps should be placed close together in double sets in areas of high activity. About 1 inch of space should separate the two traps. These double sets help capture those rodents that attempt to jump over traps, a very common occurrence.
Offer Multiple Bait Choices When many rodents are involved, different types of baits should be used. Individuals in a rodent population forage for different types of food. Therefore, it pays to divide the traps up and bait some percentage with meats such as bacon bits, some with peanut butter smudges, and some with nesting material like dental floss. The disposable rat traps are safe for use around food, water, children and pets. Victor® Metal Pedal Rat Traps are the perfect for use anywhere in the home. These rat traps should be placed where rodents travel, such as along walls at 2 to 3 foot intervals.
