Provoke provides a blend of scents and smells that Norway and roof rats find irresistable. You'll trap more rats faster. Ideal for use with all rat traps, including the Trapper T-Rex Rat Trap which features an integrated, removable cup to hold the attractant. Provoke Rat Attractant is non-toxic, non-staining and hypoallergenic. Comes in a convenient no-drip squeeze bottle (8 oz.) for easy application.

    Must have smart rats in Chicago! Strategically placed 7 traps with Provoke attractant around our infested carport & perimeter. Plenty of droppings found in vicinity, however, after a month still no kills.

    Rat Attracant

    By Stephen on 11/15/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I'd call it money attractant,did absolutely nothing but cost me money and time to put it in the trap. I bought some peanut butter and that worked immediately,hence no rating it is a zero.

    Used with Vector M326 traps and peanut butter

    By Melissa on 08/07/2012

    Verified Purchase

    I set up 6 traps and a video camera outside my home to video the behavior of the rats when I used the new attractant. To much of my surprise... I killed one rat and seriously hurt a larger rat. Watched the video camera inside my home as the rats came near the traps and they seem to be very smart rodents. It took them a good 30 - 45 minutes before eating from the traps. I have learned that in order to have success you must set the traps out with peanut butter and the rat attractant on the traps for a few nights without setting them. It gets the rats caught off guard and confortable with eating there, then on the 3rd night you set the traps with the peanut butter and Provoke on them. You should catch a few in one night if you set multiple traps up. This stuff really works.

    Works like a Pro

    By Eric on 07/13/2010

    I used the Victor Rat Trap M326 Pro the day that I received the product, I caught 2 rats in the attic the very same night!! The traps are much easier to be triggered by the rats than the regular traps that you could buy from Home Depot. I used Provoke Rat Attractant on one of the rat traps and the other one I used peanut butter.

    provoke is garbage

    By Frank on 11/23/2015

    Does nothing. I used it to no avail. I had to call in a pro to deal with my issues and he stated , and I quote, " that stuff is s** t", or excrement, same thing. Do not waste your money like I did. Make your own from peanut butter, molasses, and some bird seed, as he has been doing for years. Doubt is this website will post this!

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Will Provoke Rat Attractant work better than peanut butter?

I want to use provoke rat attractant to bait tree rats to hunt them with an air rifle which I already do with peanut butter. Will this work any better?

A
Our motto is if it isn't broke, don't fix it.  If peanut butter is working great for your problem, you should continue to use it.  This product usually yeilds great results when other products have not attracted rats at all.  If you are already attracting rats just fine with peanut butter, then you may not see any different results with the Provoke Rat Attractant.

Q
Will using Provoke Rat Attractant work better than peanut butter in the T-Rex traps?

Rats keep eating peanut butter out of T-Rex traps, will this give different results?

A
If the rats are actually eating the peanut butter out of the T-Rex Rat Trap , we recommend that you stick with peanut butter. If the rats have been able to eat the peanut butter but not get caught (very unusual with the T-Rex trap), we recommend that you try to put a small smear of the peanut butter right on the trap peddle. This way the rat will have to actually stick its head into the trap and move the peddle to eat the peanut butter which of course will result in getting caught. You should note that the manufacturer of the T-Rex Rat Traps do not recommend using peanut butter in the T-Rex because the oils in the peanut butter can cause the plastic in the trap to breakdown. Unfortunately, once the rats have become accustomed to eating peanut butter they are not as likely to try the Provoke Attractant.
