Review RateDecent product
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.
Did not kill the rat. At all. Thing was gasping and struggling. Had to shoot it in the head. Terrible product.Response From Zareba®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateVery cood trap
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.
Review RateMy favorite rat trap--they are great!
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.
Review RateCouldn't be better!
Excellent product. I. Like that it is made of plastic. Easy to clean After catching a rat.
Review RateWorks but not as expected.
While this trap has worked for me... android eventually killed the rat by strangulation or asphyxiation. .. it was not strong enough to kill the mangy rodent on impact. Should have enough power to snap them rats neck, not strangle it over 3 hours of struggle.Response From Zareba®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateCan't Miss- Great Product
We live on the water in Florida with numerous Mangroves in our backyard; hence, we have numerous rats that are constantly getting on the boats and ruining things. These Power Kill traps caught and killed 10 rats in the first 2 days of use and the remaining rats seem to have left the area. The problem seems to be solved for the immediate future; however, the traps will be stored for use on the next rat occurrence. Incidentally, we tried the standard wood traps for many days and never caught a single rat. The bait would be gone and the trap would not even be sprung. The Power Kill traps never missed.
Review RatePanic City!!!.....Help!I live in a rural area and due to my movement between two homes, one in the United Kingdom, there is no way to add a pet dog/cat. Unfortunately, I have been plagued in the past with costly wire repairs for both my car and truck. With some misinformation, I started to hate squirrels with a passion. The last wire repair as the car would not start at all. The mechanic said: I believe your problem is with field rats. Yes, these field rats can grow large, like to make their nests in the engine block area and are quick to pull away at the firewall insulation for nest building material. These were the symptoms I experienced and then, I started to research for a larger trap coming upon the larger Victor Power-Kill Trap. I was very careful as new traps have a plastic smoothness that make them a bit tricky to work with, but I didn't loose any fingers, but did get startled a few times. Finally I got the hang of it and baited these traps and placed them at suspected areas.
The next day I inspected the traps and all were intact minus one; it was missing or so I thought.....looking closer, I saw this large dead field rat with its eyes bugged out. I jumped back initially even though I realized it was dead. The rat was large and had pulled the trap under a piece of wood before it expired. So the rat was that strong and in the examination, was a larger adult size. Pulling the Victor Trap out with a stick, I had to get a good grip as the rat carcass was more weight than I expected. I was amazed and grateful that now I can honestly combat these creatures. I read that these vermin can be quite smart and figure how to avoid traps.....well now, it is like a fishing trip with my baiting and rebaiting with fresh peanuts and peanut butter. By the way, if anyone has a better bait for these field rats, please let me know.
Well, this is my review.....strange but true....to think that I can deal with a nuisance that operates in the night and can definitely disrupt one's life. Pleased that Victor came to my rescue.
Review RateGood product at a good price!
I have had one of these traps for a long time and it worked so well that I just bought four more. They outscore any other traps I have. They almost never miss.
Review RateEasy to set and use!!
I bought this trap today and it was able to extinguish the rodent in my house, at first I thought it was a chipmunk but instead it was just a mouse. I mounted it to a piece of 2x4 for more stability (mounting holes on the trap are pre-drilled for you) well worth the money. Moving forward, I will only buy this trap. The divot hole for the bait makes this trap inescapable. 5 star.
