What's everyone's opinion on trap pricing? How much would u pay to have/own traps
Let's say rodent traps

Lethal trap- would u pay 30-50.00 each?
Cage trap- would u pay 15.00-40.00 each?
One way door colony trap- would u pay 10-25.00?

Opinions?

Rodents are a big category. Are we talking mice weighing 10g or beavers weighing 60+lbs?

I do not like using wooden mouse traps for voles...love the lil black traps with yellow strike bar made by kness company in albia ia...thinking of running down to factory in end of feb and buy 2 cases. They are about $2 each...the victors dont last near as long

For rats I use the large victor snaps. I've caught them as a non target in cage traps too. They give me the willies enough as it is, I not setting out to live trap them. Red and flyers can be caught in the snaps. Greys in tubes, sometimes in cages.

Is 45.00 a reasonable price to ask for a new rodent lethal trap?

I think there would have to be an obvious advantage to the new trap in order to convince people to change to a new style. Durability, effectiveness, ease of setting... That sort of thing.

Visit Wildlife Control Supplies website and Fur Harvesters Trading Post website. Find the traps you are referring to. That's what I would pay.

I wouldnt pay $45 for a rat trap. I thought the $8 t rex was pushing it.

However, a multi catch lethal rat trap I would pay $45 for. They may an electronic mouse trap that is multi catch. If I did enough of it I would get one.

I think cost isn't as important as durability and effectiveness. Many in this industry just want products that we can rely upon. Cost is a one time concern and the right products make us money regardless of the cost
