A few years back, my parents' house became infested with a family of rats. You could hear them running around in the attic, and occasionally see one in the laundry room, where the dog food was kept. Mom, being the compassionate sort, put out poisoned bait, figuring that this would be a more humane method for getting rid of these guys. It didn't work and we could still hear the rats in the attic at night. Early one evening, I placed a single trap in the dog-food bin. While enjoying a cup of coffee with my folks after dinner, we heard a nice, loud snap. One large male rat down. The following night, I set the second trap and some time later in the evening we got the (equally large) female. I used bacon for bait. Some years later, we were replacing the attic insulation and found the remnants of a rats nest, with the skeletal remains of some babies, so taking out those two prevented several generations from growing up and becoming an even bigger problem.

When I set out the trap to catch a pack rat nested in my woodpile I instead cought a 4.5 foot diamond back rattlesnake. The picture speeks for itself.

Individuals in a rodent population search for different types of food. For rats, anything like peanut butter, dry dog food, nuts, fruit or bacon is a great option. Try to use whatever bait the rodents are currently feeding on, but feel free to provide alternative choices as well.
Can the trap be reused?
The Victor® Metal Pedal Rat Trap can be reused or disposed of. It is personal preference. Check the traps frequently to ensure the trap is emptied as soon as a rat is captured and the traps will last longer. Please note that for personal hygiene and biohazard awareness, disposable gloves should always be worn when installing or recovering any traps.
