Types of Rat Traps

Break Back Rat Traps

Break back rat traps are one of the most effective and powerful types of rat traps we sell. They are designed to kill rats instantly once caught and are very easy to set. When setting up these traps you need to ensure they look as natural in the environment as possible for best results. If you successfully catch a rat and other rats in the colony become aware it may suddenly become a lot harder to catch more, but with rats persistence is key.

Electronic Rat Traps

Electronic rat traps are the more modern and newer type of trap that we sell but are preferred by a lot of customers due to their cleaner and lower suffering that the rat has to endure. Electronic traps are just as effective as other types of rat traps but don’t rely on them to deal with an entire colony, they are best used to deal with the occasional intruder. As with all rat traps we recommend using some type of lure or attractant to encourage the rats to enter the trap.

Spring Rat Traps

Spring rat traps are even more powerful and when set correctly can be even more effective than break back traps. Make sure to take great care when handling these traps as they are very sensitive and deadly when set. When placing these traps you need to be aware of the law that stresses they can only be used when covered by a tunnel to protect access by cats and other mammals. These traps are often set with the treadle plate flush to the ground and concealed with dirt and other natural bits of nature in the area.

Why We Don’t Sell Rat Glue Traps

There are many companies that choose to sell rat glue traps as they are a very cheap alternative to others on the market and some people want the cheapest product regardless of the suffering it may cause. We choose not to sell rat glue traps as we don’t believe there is justification for such an inhumane method of killing rats. They cause the rodent considerable stress and suffering over a period of time and we prefer to sell products that achieve the outcome cleaner and quicker.
