Will it kill squirells

Squirrels, I do not know for sure but, it will take out Chipmunks. Even if it does not kill the squirrel, it will catch a leg or nose which is worse. I hate to say it, an air rifle does a good job of dispatching the rat while saving the others.

Cab you catch mice with this trap?

Asked by asere November 9, 2017

Answers

I purchased several of these recently. This particular style (for rats) is probably too large to catch mice. I believe it would just fling them several feet. If it caught a mouse, there's a good chance it would only catch the mouse by the tail.

Saw a rat run across my outdoor patio so went straight to Home Depot. Debated between this and bait based traps and went with this bc I didnt want to kill any birds. Put a piece of bread topped off with the bait gel made by Tomcat. Came across this this morning.

I bought two types of traps and this was the one that caught both mice so far. Going back for more since exterminator won't be here for a while. So much easier to setup than most traps. Kills immediately (I've seen it in action) some traps are weak and the mice run around with the trap on it for a bit. Super gross and gives me anxiety. This trap kills on site.

Had rats in the garage so I bought a few different styles of traps, this being one of them. First off I need to point out that rats are far more intelligent than mice. Humane traps are mostly ineffective, esp. for the adults. Once I found I had more than 1 rat, I decided waiting out the humane trap was not an option. Victor has a great reputation, so I bought a few of these along with the basic snap traps. The first trap I opened was missing the sear (for lack of a better word). That's the part at the back of the trap that holds the snap back. The "sear" and little pin that holds it in place were missing. The other traps were complete. Arming was easy, and a bit safer than the basic trap, however I would suggest waiting until you place it before arming it. After arming it, I noticed the spring tension was not quite as strong as I thought it should be. There are 2 holes in the rear of the base for securing the trap to a block of wood. I did thins just in case the trap didn't immediately kill the rodent. It took the better part of a week, but I finally got one. Unfortunately it did not kill the animal quickly. I found blood spattered over the area as well as claw marks in the wood I mounted it to. This was a smaller animal. Had it been a full size adult, I don't think it would have worked. I have no problem killing when necessary, but I avoid torture....period. Pros: Easy to arm. A nice large bait area. Cons: Not enough spring tension for an instant kill. The bait area is not attached to the trip, and larger rats can get the bait without activating. Remember, they are clever!! Bottom line: For under 4 bucks you can give it a try, just remember to mount it to something. I rated this 2 stars because it is not instant kill, and for 1 new unit missing pieces. I will stick with the Victor basic snap.

Got a rat on the second try. The first time I used peanut butter and the bugger ate it all without getting caught. Second time i used a small brussel sprout I shaved down at the base and wedged in there so it would not easily come out. Worked like a charm. See the picture. I know its mean but rats can be a problem and where there is one there are bound to be many more. I will keep using this. Much easier and safer for me than the older wooden ones.

After reading recommendations about how to get rid of rats I decided a trap was the best bet. Poisons are too likely to have unintended consequences and I have heard the rat may not die. I bought four traps and baited with dog food, what attracted them to my garage, combined with a little peanut butter. Cleanly killed two within four hours after sunset. The trap bar crushed their skulls for a very quick death with no mess. I didn’t even have to rebait one of traps. The trap is very well designed. Easy to release the carcass. The bait well holds the food snugly. The set process is foolproof. It just works and well worth the price.

high quality mouse trap, capable of instantly killing rats and mice, better than glue trap, especially for killing rats instantly which mouse won't need to suffer for long time.

Discovered we had some rats in the backyard one night, made me miss my cat that passed away even more. Saw these at Home Depot and decided to try them out. I dislike the other inexpensive style where your fingers are in jeopardy when you set it, this one looked like it wouldn't have that problem and it didn't and it's very easy to set. It also has a small cylindrical bait trap, perfect for putting peanut butter in. I read some of the reviews and noticed people said it would go flying when it trips, tried it out and I agreed. Didn't want that to affect it's trapping ability so found some scrap 2x6 and screwed it down onto a 1ft long piece and that gave it a good, solid base. I put a standard sized clay brick on it too so that it wouldn't get moved around easily. This batted 5 for 6 on my the kills, only once did it get tripped and nothing in it. I heard it trip so went outside and reset it, and by morning it did have a rat kill. It did kill one bird also. IMO this is an overall awesome rat trap, really happy with it. Super easy to use, set, bait with peanut butter, etc. It's solid construction too, does not feel cheap, should last for years. I already named it killer.
