We use these for chipmunks. Place some seeds tightly in the clasp. Place somewhere that birds or other animals will not get at it, you could build a tiny chicken-wire box for it to sit inside of. Make sure you tie it down, if your pest is caught but not instantly killed you don't want him dragging this away. With that said, it is very very powerful, unless he steps on it from the wrong direction, it will be a clean kill. Watch those fingers.

What can I say, rat traps work if set and baited properly. Got to give it 5 stars.My purpose was for a cheap way to procure squirrel and other small critters so as to add another item to a bug out bag or survival situation to be used as emergency last resort if TSHTF some day.Basically, just naturally stain or paint the trap a darker wood color, drill a hole in the back end of the trap and glue in a vinyl washer so you can nail or wire it securely to a tree er' something through the hole. Then, wax the whole trap and soak/set the wax into the wood with a heat gun.Voila! instant SHTF small game trap for 4 bucks or less. If you ever have to, bait with something nutty like peanut butter and set a couple of these out. You'll save bullets, valuable time and money compared to firearm hunting and paying for more expensive traps even though you'll probably never need them. An added bonus is that these are more easily repairable/expendable in a SHTF situation than a real and more valuable game trap.Mileage may vary.

I have palm rats living in the attic above my garage. I've tried 4 different types of traps and the only one that works every time is a basic Victor. I've learned to run a thin wire through the bottom opening of the bait holder and tie it around a piece of bacon. You'll need a piece of bacon about the size of a grown man's thumbnail. Then I smear some peanut butter on the bacon and place the trap perpendicular to a cross beam in the attic, with the tip of the trap almost touching the wood. In 5 days I've caught 5 rats. I have never caught a rat on a glue trap. And the more modern plastic traps are no good at all.

these are rat traps and they are effective against a variety of small yard pests. I would buy them again.

I know rats, and I know traps. I've tried everything from electronic "juicers" to the humane catch-and-release traps. Without question, the best, most reliable trap on the market is the Victor trap with the metal--not plastic--bait holder.To make this thing 100% effective, however, you'll need to make 2 modifications--hence my four stars. The first is not for the squeamish. To make sure that the rat doesn't escape (and the big ones will, even from the Victor) and is dispatched more quickly, you'll need "spike" the trap. Here's how it's done. Remove trap from plastic packaging. Notice that the copper "bail" (the thing that traps the rat) is in the "trapped" position. You'll to drill 6 to 8 small pilot holes in the wood around the inside perimeter of the bail--about 1/4 inch in, forming a u-shaped necklace around the bait. Now turn the trap over, screw in 6-8 pointed wood screws or drive in 6-8 nails in the pilot holes (the pilot holes keep the wood from splitting. When all the way in, the nails or screws should protrude up through the bait-side of the trap about 1/2 an inch. That way, when the bail snaps, the rat will be both pinned and skewered, and will die much more quickly. As I said, it's not for the squeamish. But it beats choking the rat over a period of hours, or just wounding it and having it die inside your walls.The second modification is simpler. Drill one hole in the corner of the other end of the trap (where the bait isn't), and tie on some twine. When placing the trap, be sure you've secured the twine to something that won't move.With these modifications, the Victor trap is unbeatable. Without them, it's only good for the smaller rats.
