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.
Review RateVictor power kill rat trap
I bought the rat traps and have had great success. They are easy to operate and easy to bait and I have caught one each time that I have put them out. I'm now realizing that the problem was worse than I thought and I will purchase more of these traps.
Review RateDoes Not KillI bought one of these with a couple of the good ole Wooden Ones and the first night I got 2 dead rats with the wooden ones and the second night I CAUGHT a rat with the Power-Kill trap but it did not kill him...I don't think there is enough power in these traps to kill big rats, I ended up having to shoot the rat in the head with a pellet gun because I was afraid the thing was gonna get out and I did not want to listen to him flop around all night...all in all, a very un-nerving night!!
Bottom line use the Wooden Traps...they work and KILL every time and are cheaper too!Response From Zareba®Tara : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for taking the time to provide your feedback, we are very sorry to hear of this experience.

Review RateCaused sufferingWe have been using this trap on our property and have killed about 10 rats with it. I did notice a couple of times that the deceased rat had managed to move several feet before dying, so wondered how long they dying had taken. This morning at 4 a.m., I went out and checked the trap (insomnia). I assumed a rat had just been trapped, as it seemed to be in its death throes. It was not a huge rat. When I checked back at 10 a.m., it was still alive and SUFFERING! I managed to release it but was not able to finish it off with my shovel. I felt absolutely terrible that the poor creature had suffered for 6 hours or more. I don't believe the kill bar is strong enough to cause an instant, humane death, as it is only retracted to a 90 degree angle. I have purchased 2 old-fashioned Victor traps, where the kill bar is at 180 degrees. I will try to set them tonight and hope for better results. This experience has been sickening.Response From Zareba®Tara : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for taking the time to share your feedback, we are very sorry to learn of this unusual experience.

Review Ratesorry I bought theseThese seemed to be such a good idea, but so many times have left rats caught in a cruel way still lingering on...unless, they get the food and get away altogether. The wooden traps are better in our opinion. The black metal electric are the very best of all.Response From Zareba®Susan : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello Joey,
The High-Impact Kill Bar™ used on this trap is designed to provide a quick and humane kill. We apologize that was not your experience. For best results, we recommend placing only a pea sized amount of peanut butter in the bait cup. This will help ensure that the rat is properly aligned when the trap is triggered.
