Doesn’t work By Jim

Horrible trap. I’ve used minimal peanut butter for bait and the trap has been cleaned out of bait, without snapping the trap. Bait hole seems way to big for a rats skinny nose to trip the trap. Waste of money You should also have a review rating with no stars. I have to choose one and that’s too high

They are large enough to be killing in a quick humane way. Because of the plastic it can be easily sterilized with a hose and a tad of liquid soap. The mechanical is such that the rodent is removed easily. I hate killing any animals but in this case we dont have choice. It is pain free if the baiting is done properly compared to poison that put in danger all the animals in the food chain and the very worst which is the glue traps where the death is slow and painful. So if you care about no inflicting pain, those traps are the way to go....

decent trap, but needs some revamping By Anastajia

just bought two of those traps, we are getting plagued by rats right now. We caught one LARGE rat last night, only problem was, it caught the rat by the nose and did not kill it. I would suggest that you make the trap a little longer, that way the bigger rats will go further on to get to the bait. I questioned the clerk yesterday on how small this trap was as some of those rats can just stretch their heads to get to the bait, he agreed and said he has had to kill some himself. I had to kill this one which I found a little distasteful. Your trap works, but needs some work done on it to make it better.

Response From Victor®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We are sorry to hear about this experience, Anastajia, and appreciate the feedback. When baiting this trap, we recommend using just a pea-sized amount of bait in the bait cup and placing the trap with the bait end against a wall. This will help place most rats in the best position for a quick, humane kills.

Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any additional questions. Our traps are covered by a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a one-year replacement warranty.

Rats Outsmart These Traps By John

We bought six of these for roof rats. No rats have been harmed in any way. The rats have figured out how to trip the traps without getting hurt. All they do is feed the rats.

Response From Victor®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience. For the best results, we recommend baiting the trap with a small amount of bait, such as a toothpick amount of peanut butter. By using a smaller amount, the rats are less likely to be able to quickly grab the bait and run without setting off the trap. We also recommend placing the end of the trap with the bait trough flush against the wall.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any questions or for additional assistance.

Decent product By Ratless Robert

Not bad. One 15 inch rat got swift end with this trap. Helps to put a touch of oil on axis of trip plate. Sometimes some units are difficult to set. They make heka noise when tripped, thus idea below: The one unusual deterrent I used was an aluminum kids baseball bat: I pinged it vigorously off the attic wood rafters many hundred times on Xmas eve. Ping and vibration reverberated regularly for a few hours. No more rat sounds since. They went deaf and are now in rehab in some neighbor’s attic I think. Now I can sleep again.

Awful. By Buck

Did not kill the rat. At all. Thing was gasping and struggling. Had to shoot it in the head. Terrible product.

Very cood trap By AnnieO

The Power-Kill Rat Traps are really an improvement over the wooden traps, because the power-kill bar is much stronger, and works very good. The plastic base makes it easier to keep clean and disinfect at the end of the season, and we have caught quite a few rats with this trap. I keep them in the tractor barn, the well house, and around the edges of the wooden decks. The bait well is superb also. We have been cery satisfied with this trap and will continue to purchase on-line from Victor as needed.

My favorite rat trap--they are great! By AnnieO

I love these power-kill rat traps. Been using them for about 4 years. They are easy to clean up after each rat/mouse season, and in-between and the spring on the kill bar is such a great improvement and I love the hard plastic over the wood bases. I have these traps in the barn in the tack room, in a shop where we park the tractor, lawnmower and keep tools, in a garage where we park the vehicles, and also in the well house. Have caught Norway rats, cotton rats, some pack rats and 1 roof rat which this one rat was a surprise to me. Thank you Victor for these superb traps. I also enjoy reading the articles and tips Victor offers.

Q.I have 6 of these traps. They worked fine initially, but now they are difficult to reset, and when I finally get them reset, the rats can walk right over them and depress the paddle and nothing happens. Is there something that needs adjustment or lubrication to make them work again? They are only a few months old.

This trap does not include any adjustment features.  They are covered by a one year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.

Q.Can I set the sensitivity on these traps? I have watched rats lick the bait clean and run away.

We apologize, but the sensitivity cannot be changed on this trap. We recommend using only a small amount (pea-sized) of bait, as larger amounts actually make it easier for the bait to be stolen away. 

Additional tips can be found in our Learning Center, including the article about 7 Mouse Trap Mistakes You're Making.

Q.can this trap be used for mice or just rats?

This Power-Kill™ trap is designed for rats. We would recommend our Power-Kill™ Mouse Trap (model M142S) for catching mice.
