Trapper T Rex Rat Traps

Walt Cline - Pest Control Professional Pro Tip: "These traps can be used in some odd ball places. Roof rats like to run along pipes. Strap two traps in facing opposite directions. Put a little Provoke Rat Attractant on it and see what happens. On hard services you might try using some Hercules Putty to secure the trap and keep a rodent from dragging it away."

Great trap!
I hired a really great team of pro a couple years ago (in Chicago) and these are what they use, and left me. I just reordered a couple of these for summer. They work great. I have one that I put by a hole rats use and I have killed a dozen rats with the one trap! (they can't get past it) I put two side by side and twice I have killed two at a time. I don't even bait them. No half dead rats to fuss with, kills instantly.

Mixed success
I've had mixed success with these traps. Catches some but also have had the bait (peanut butter) completely eaten and the trap didn't spring. Frustrating when that happens. The trap also doesn't always kill the pest and I've had to retrieve a live animal in the trap. I've mixed in a Victor snap trap and it works every time, kills em dead. It's just that the T Rex is so much easier to set. Thanks

Worth the Money
I purchased 2 traps upon recommendation from my neighbor who had a severe chipmunk problem. They trapped 24 chipmunks in a short period of time. I was able to trap 2 and it seems the rest have left the area because there are no new indications of their presence. The traps are well constructed and easy to use. Very effective.

Works Great
I am back to purchase more of these, that says a lot. Don't forget to also order the bait: Provoke Rat Attractant. They love that bait!

Snap, snap
My husband informed me of at least 2 rats in our barn area - the cat, dogs and chickens had not chased out.
We used these - husband likes the design - within a few hours *snap, snap* 1 down. A few hours later, *snap, snap* 2 down. Reset 2 more times for a total of 4 rats. No more infestation. Super simple. Love it.

2 hours later and down
Have a difficult rat in an RV...one rat. Making a huge mess under the cabinet out of sight...huge pile of droppings. No sign in living space. Nest under heater...full garbage can of branches and lost items of hardware and such in paper bags. tried traditional snap traps and it was stealing and springing. Got the putty and provoke bait, and T rex traps...2 hours later, he was dead..I got it on a deer cam video too...I have been back to view cameras and traps after 5 hours and no sign of rats...we shall see, but buying one box, tube of provoke, putty, and 4 traps makes me know I am prepared for invasion. Way less than the initial visit by a "pro". I am the pro...

Oh my god. You must get these!
We've been using the wood and spring traps for years, with peanut butter. I called DYOP and explained to Emmett that we needed help with rats living in and destroying a couch after they raided a huge bag of pistachio nuts. Peanut butter in the wood/spring traps did not work. Emmett suggested these T Rex traps, and he explained how to set them over time to make the rats feel safe around them until we loaded them. Boom! Got three fat rats three nights in a row. Success!

What I like about these traps is that I can set and unset them myself, safely. I don't touch the wood/springs traps, my hands aren't as strong as my husbands and I am afraid to get hurt. These traps can be set by stepping on them, and easily released by just tapping on the plate with a pencil. We are sold! Thanks DYOP!

Killed 5 roof rats
Killed 5 roof rats in less than 24 hours. Super easy to use.

Good but don't always kill or kill quickly
I like these traps because I can set them with a heel rather than my arthritic fingers, and because they are easily reusable. I put peanut butter deep in the cup.

I wish however Bell would let us know how quickly and surely they kill, how long they are effective, and how to tell when it's time to throw one out.

Often I find a dead rat in one, but sometimes I'm woken up by repetitive sound of a rat trying to move while caught. I prefer a quick, humane kill. Last time I tried to drop the box with trapped roof rat in a bucket of water and found empty trap in the morning.

Traps Walk Off!
I've bought these traps a few times. They always end up "walking off." This time I bought 2, and within a couple of weeks they disappeared. They are put in places that only a rat would find them, so I assume rats are getting a leg caught and dragging the traps back to their home.

The next time I buy them, I think I will attach them to something with fishing line so they won't disappear!
