Maybe Chicago rats are hip to rat traps, but they just chewed a hole thru the bottom to get to the peanut butter and didnt even bother entering the tube. The traps are so light, they dragged them all over the yard. I cant even find one of the traps anymore.

Rats are very smart critters. I had no confidence in this rat trap as soon as I opened up the box. I put it out where they come from the bushes at the front of the house. The rats sneak through them to feed on the bird seed and shelled peanuts I put out for the birds and squirrels. I don't want to stop feeding them so it's important to me to feed them. Well the rat traps were ignored even though I put extra crunchy peanut butter in it. I do not recommend purchasing this product.

This is a vey unique trap which kills with a tight rubber band that snaps over a rodent's neck or body and then expels the rodent from the trap after it's triggered. I have it set up and baited with peanut butter but I'm still anxiously waiting for the first kill. It comes with 12 rubber bands. I don't know if you can buy replacement bands or if you will just have to pitch it after 12 kills and buy a new one. But for the price, 12 kills is a great value. I found the instructions a little difficult to understand so I had to look up a video online to be sure I set it up properly. Once I figured it out it was easy to set up.
