I use the colony trap caging with a half door with my snap traps on farm jobs to keep chickens and other animals from triggering them.

A guy I knew found the little scutters will eat each other in the traps.

What's new about rodents dining on each other? Our repeating mouse traps usually contain 6 tails and one very fat mouse!

I used some in years past and I built a couple but haven't used them a lot over the years. I use mostly single catch cages and snaps most of the time. I can spread out many more single catch traps to cover more activity areas.

I suppose that if you were on a primary travel route to a food source or on a good noted den area you could do well depending upon their acceptance of the trap. Rats can be funny as we all know at times.

yes, work well, especially when blended in with grass layed over and stabilized with a t-stake set in the runs
