When rats take up residence under the kitchen sink, a rat trap is often required to evict the pesky visitors. Snap traps are thought of as the more humane lethal rat trap, killing rats quickly. Snap traps also don’t pose the health risks affiliated with rat poisons.

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 trap’s 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

I live and work in Iraq and let's say that conditions over here aren't the most sanitary. The rats here are 6+ inches, not including the tail! The little 3" traps just don't do the trick; I put some out and the next day they were all gone. I guess the rats are building a gym or something. The glue traps just kept the rats alive and meant I had to... uh... "deal" with them mafia style. Poison isn't so good either as the rats just eat and go off and die somewhere, leaving a dead rat body to find.

Anyway, these things are no joke. Very sturdy and a wicked snap. Sounds like a gun going off when they snap closed.

Don't know why they manufacturer recommends using them only once. I handle them with rubber gloves and haven't died yet, despite decreasing the rat population by seven with one trap.

I really like these M201 traps once I modify them a bit. (see below)
I've had excellent success with the newer M144 traps for medium to small rats, but the big adult rats seem to escape by pulling out of the M144.
These M201 have a stronger spring and hit harder, capturing and killing the bigger rats.
I have 6 of these M201 (all modified) and 5 of the M144. They have killed close to 100 rats in my old barn in the last 30 days. (we stopped keeping track around 60)

Modification to M201:
To greatly improve these Victor M201 traps, take a plastic beverage bottle cap.
Cut a small slit with a knife on the flat side (top)of the cap about 1/2 way between the center and the edge. The slit should be parallel to the edge.
Pry up the end of the raised little metal V on the trigger to roughly a 30 degree angle.
Slide the slit in the bottle cap over the raised V so the open side of the cap is up.
The bottle cap will only fit flat on the trigger one way, you will see what I mean when you try it.
Then press the little V back down inside the cap. This holds the cap down securely on the trigger.

You now have a very nice bait holder for the M201 style traps.
Next, put a small dab of peanut butter on a piece of dog food and stick it down inside the bottle cap.
The rats (mine especially) seem very attracted to both dog food and peanut butter.
Now the rats have to work extra hard at getting the bait out of the cap and get caught in the process.
The bait stays in the cap so well that I have often caught 3 or 4 rats with the same piece of dog food! I simply remove the dead rat and re-set the trap.
After this free and simple modification, (which takes less than 1 minute once you know how) these M201 traps have been catching many more large adult rats for me :)

After my mod - I'd give it 5 stars ;)

The rats I've killed with these Victor traps have all looked happy. Their last meal must have tasted good... Then their skull is smashed in half. This is an effective trap which was almost 4* because they are so scary to set. The force exerted by the snap arm would break fingers - do doubt. They are however the most effective snap traps I have found.

Just to prove I'm not affiliated with Victor at all, I can say that as long as you don't let the rat decompose on the trap (been there, done that) you can re-use these for a while (Victor says throw them away - I wonder why?) Buy a pair of industrial rubber gloves and disinfect them after every use.

Death to vermin!

Bait: peanut butter, dried apricots, fruit gums. Buy the real peanut butter because rats don't like sunpat (honestly). I don't know if they are connoisseurs of fruit/wine gums. Apricots go mouldy after a while but are very effective.

I bought my trap for $2 so look around.
I had my one trap now for less than 24 hours and have caught two rats in my back yard. First rat made BEN look small, and second was about 1/4 lb. Rats are no fun, but baited traps are quick, easy, and cheap.
I wore food handler gloves whenever handling the trap after a kill. Found that smooth peanut butter on both the hinge and spring pan before setting the trap worked. The trap was placed on my wooden fence on the cross supports where the rats were last seen.
Would attach a video, but none of the rats have signed actor consent forms.

Also if you are worried about pain death is in an instant due to the large spring, and there are no batteries to worry about going dead...

I live near a stream and have rats with bodies 8"+ These traps have been sprung over 20 times int he last 4 days and it's only caught 3 of them. Sometimes the traps are drug a distance away from where they were. They Are "catching" the rats but then the rats just pull themselves out and go along with their business. I need a stronger trap.

edit 9/12
just a bit over a month later.. have caught about 35 rats with the victors since I started. Escape rate is about 50% with the mod I'll mention in a moment. The JAWS trap has a much lower escape rate but it also gets sprung much less often.

I modified the traps by putting sharp thin nails through the wood just inside the trap bar area so that the rats get stabbed and can't pull out as easily. Many of the catches would have escaped without the barbs.

Here is a ascii drawing of what I mean. lines are the trap bar and dots are the barbs. Disregard the commas. Amazon's formatting would let me just use spaces.
