Some of us applicators came up the term AMBUSH traps where we tried putting rat traps inside certain brands. This type of Rodent Ware is needed for Schools and Day Care centers where Rodenticides cannot be used. This designer came up with a winner in all departments. And gave extreme thought in a simple trap inspection with out opening the unit! Kudos to him for helping us out. Kids can't get their hands inside either to get snapped. Teachers should be watching out as well. But it passed gruesome criteria to make out here on the market. I just wanted to say thanks.
Caught a rat as soon as I set it up. I didn't give five stars because it's kind of awkward to set. Thought you just had to pull the tab but you have to set it by hand and unlock it with the key every time. All-in-all works really well.
Live in the desert in Northern Scottsdale, AZ. This product is absolutely terrific, I.e., kills a lot of Kangaroo rats.
3 big reasons to purchase this product:
1.) it works effectively
2.) the yellow portion of the indicator will come into the box when you have something and only the black portion will be visible.
3.) with the cement base, no need to worry about javalenas or dogs carrying off your trap.
I caught 4 rats since putting the 2 stations where there was activity. The 2 stations were about $70 bucks. The exterminator wanted $250 per month for the exact same thing! I'm seriously considering terminating the exterminator and doing my own spraying with the help of DoMyOwn.
I was hopeful what with all the good reviews that I'd catch something, but I only succeeded in providing critters a peanut butter snack :0(
The rat/mouse took the peanut butter, and the trap was sprung, but nothing.
Wondering what did other reviewers do differently?
I'm going to try placing just vanilla extract in the dished out area or tying a walnut with a string. Customer service was helpful though in giving me suggestions.
