The big t-rex rat traps attached to a short 2x4 or 2x6 work well for rats


once you go trap, you never come back

Any of you EVER try bodygrips like 55s or 110s for rats? How did it work out for you, and did you use standard wires or added pans?




I know snap traps are the standard, I'm just curious

I use t-rex traps as well...as long as I wire them so they don't disappear, they work great! I got my fingers broken in a wooden rat trap a few years back...so I won't use those ever, ever again-small hands and wood rat traps just don't mix-at least not for me. :-) I've never tried body grips...

Standard wire 110s work, set the trigger on the last notch and start it so it moves free a bit like for mink. Set blind


Common sense catches alot of fur..
Pay homage to all you harvest..

Illegal to use here without a permit and would be best used for muskrats with the regs that are in place. Jmo, those traps aren't practical for most applications when it comes to Adc work for rats. More of a preference thing than effectiveness. The majority of places where rat traps need to be placed in order to be successful in regards to time and catch volume those traps wouldn't cut it. Bigger liability risk when dealing with children and pets at the residence as well.

I too at times like to use certain methods and traps to do a job because I like that method or trap. If you run two traps along side by side on the same job you can get a feel for how effective one is over the other. (Pros&Cons) Those traps would be out trapped by standard rat traps and ultimately you risk losing money on the job. For the simple fact of trap placement and running time.

Thanks for the replies. I like the idea of using BGs, but you're right, I think snap traps would be much quicker and easier to set.




I still think these are a good idea for certain situations, but they're probably more of a squirrel trap setup than a rat trap....

Trex won't work on our 16 in long rats


Some will wait for what they want, But this is much more slicker, WORK REAL HARD for what you want, and you will get it much more QUICKER ...

VPRT's back springs raised 1/8 3/16 to a 1/4 inch will take out any rodent. They do a stand up job alone without any mods.

What's wrong with a bait station (cubby) with a 2" hole in both ends and run rat poison...Aka rodent rocks ...

Nothing at all if you're licensed to handle it on someones property besides your own, and if the homeowner allows it to be placed on their property. Many folks are 100% against poisons being placed on their property. I don't have a core License to handle it on someones property besides my own, and have no interest in obtaining it at this time. Not sold on that's the best method of removal either, especially after the repairs I've done to homes and apartments for the removal of dead rodents in the warmer months.

That would be exclusion work, the obvious which is done on every job unless the customer wants to seal up on their own. So you'd place poison on a property where the homeowner wants nothing to do with it? Interesting.. I've been in homes with trays filled with poison and bait stations that were used but never took care of the problem. So how is poison professional? heh Lemme grab the popcorn...this should be interesting.
