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.

About 2 years ago I used the Victor Rat Trap to rid my attic of Red Squirrels. This year I've had Flying Squirrels. The 4 Victor Traps I use have a 100% kill rate. So far I've gotten 22 of them, shot 1, schmucked 2 with a shovel and the other 19 went down thanks to Victor. RESPONSE FROM VICTOR PEST NOVEMBER 21, 2012 Thank you for your online review!

Norway Rat gone!April 17, 2012
Reviewer: One satisfied custmer
Like a fool , I used a small off brand mouse trap . That little trap went off, whacked him on the head , left him stunned only to slowly walk away. Decided enough with the games and bought a few Victor Rat Pedal Rat traps . Caught this vermin in less than 10 minutes after baiting . Slammed him hard !Awesome !!
Super effective!!!October 30, 2011
I set it in my garage which started to get infestation of rodent for some reason, within 1 day of setting it up, it trapped 3 mice!!! Wow...Just one thing, as Canadians, we always pay more for everything, including mouse/rat traps, lol, but it's worth every penny...
Got 2 out of 2March 28, 2011
The first night I used them, I put two in the garage, I caught two. One had almost eaten all the PB before he set it off and the other one just got started. Can't wait for tomorrow am...

I used these on my former Red Squirrels that set up house in my Attic. In ONE DAY they were all caught. One of them "lost his mind" literally. Had to throw that trap out. By FAR the best way to rid yourself of these annoying pest!!!
1st time set, success!June 10, 2010
There was a rat running around my room for nearly a week. Threw down poison, but I didn't wanna wait days for it to die behind my walls. So I started setting up whatever traps I could get at nearby stores. Tomcat glue traps, no go, it just left it's hair behind. Tomcat rat trap, took a lick of the PB, but didn't set it off, even with meat as bait. Got my hands on the Victor(which slams harder than the other traps I've tried, satisfying). The 1st night I set up the Victor, I got my rat! Thanks Victor!
Best Rat Trap MadeJanuary 15, 2009
I put this trap out after I had tried the other rat traps. This is by far the most effective trap. After one night I had my rat. Awesome!!

If you have a rat problem, get this trap. I got rid of my problem fast. It catches mice and rats. The only bad thing is that it is scary to set. Not one rat got away from this trap.$
Needed a little modification...but it did the job...November 30, 2013
I discovered that I have a rodent problem recently. I wasn't sure if it was a rat or mouse so I purchased both the Victor mouse traps and Victor rat traps with the pedal trigger. One of the mouse traps went off but didn't catch anything. But I noticed that some of the bait was missing from the rat traps and the trap didn't go off. I did some investigating and found out that one could bend the trigger bar and change the trap's tension. So I did that and baited two rat traps with cheese and one with peanut butter and ground cereal (double chocolate Krave, to be exact). I came home from work tonight WAS I SURPRISED! The rat trap that I had baited with peanut butter and ground cereal had not only gone off, IT CAUGHT A RAT! WOO HOO!!! One down...let's see if it happens again!

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.

The Victor® Metal Pedal Rat Trap can be reused or disposed of. It is personal preference.
