Provoke Rat Attractant
By JP on November 1, 2010
Must have smart rats in Chicago! Strategically placed 7 traps with Provoke attractant around our infested carport & perimeter. Plenty of droppings found in vicinity, however, after a month still no kills.

I'd call it money attractant,did absolutely nothing but cost me money and time to put it in the trap. I bought some peanut butter and that worked immediately,hence no rating it is a zero.

Works like a Pro
By Eric on July 13, 2010
I used the Victor Rat Trap M326 Pro the day that I received the product, I caught 2 rats in the attic the very same night!! The traps are much easier to be triggered by the rats than the regular traps that you could buy from Home Depot. I used Provoke Rat Attractant on one of the rat traps and the other one I used peanut butter.

I wish I could say better things
By Dissapointed on March 31, 2011
I have placed my traps in areas where lots of droppings are under the assumption that the rats frequent those areas. In the week or so that my traps have been out, the Provoke only attracted a single rat. I am optimistic and hope that the trap rate will pick up soon.

Used with Vector M326 traps and peanut butter
By Melissa on August 7, 2012
I set up 6 traps and a video camera outside my home to video the behavior of the rats when I used the new attractant. To much of my surprise... I killed one rat and seriously hurt a larger rat. Watched the video camera inside my home as the rats came near the traps and they seem to be very smart rodents. It took them a good 30 - 45 minutes before eating from the traps. I have learned that in order to have success you must set the traps out with peanut butter and the rat attractant on the traps for a few nights without setting them. It gets the rats caught off guard and confortable with eating there, then on the 3rd night you set the traps with the peanut butter and Provoke on them. You should catch a few in one night if you set multiple traps up. This stuff really works.
Provoke rat attractant
By Lil on February 26, 2013
I put the rat attractant on five traps with high hopes but not one rat took the bait. Previously I caught the most rats with cheese.
I've Seen it Work

My pest control company says the have good results with this bait here, in Hawaii. They put it on snap and glue traps at my property. If they had used a better quality snap trap they would have killed seven roof rats in two days. Instead thy caught only one. I caught two in snap traps with one sunflower seed each. Anyway, the rats took every trace of the bait off of the failed snappers. The traps couldn't have been cleaner if they had been licked! So I'd say that they like it. The key is that you have to remove all other food sources. If not they won't stick their necks out, pun intended ;-)
gopher caught using provoke as a lure

I caught a gopher with a Cinch trap using provoke as a lure
Don't think it works that great
By Wendy on October 24, 2011
This did not seem to entice them into the traps---potato chips and cat food seemed to work better--but I will try again--
By Nancy on September 11, 2011
I have more like attracting the rats with peanut butter or cheese than this . I have not caught one single rodent using this attractant. Its easy to use if it only attracted them.
Rodents are gone
By Nils on April 29, 2013
Have numerous poultry pens in my old stanchion dairy barn. Late winter I noticed a sudden rat population in the heifer barn and active mice in the unoccupied cow stable. Had set numerous Victor traps and one Havahart. Caught one large rat in the Havahart. After that; hadn't caught any mice or rats. Sent for and received Provoke for rats and one for mice. Baited my Victor traps and the second night, I caught a large female rat. After that, I have seen no rodent activity. The product Provoke has a very distinct odor. My thought is: They just got a whiff of the stuff and decided ti leave town. Will Keep the Provoke handy in case they decide to return.

QWill Provoke Rat Attractant work better than peanut butter?
I want to use provoke rat attractant to bait tree rats to hunt them with an air rifle which I already do with peanut butter. Will this work any better?
AOur motto is if it isn't broke, don't fix it. If peanut butter is working great for your problem, you should continue to use it. This product usually yeilds great results when other products have not attracted rats at all. If you are already attracting rats just fine with peanut butter, then you may not see any different results with the Provoke Rat Attractant.

QI trap and release pack rats. I assume that Provoke Rat Attractant will not kill them. Correct?
AProvoke Rat Attractant is simply an attractant and does contain any type of poison.
June 27, 2010Lynn asked:
QIs the Provoke Rat Attractant Non-toxic?
A reviewer says that he finds one dead rat a day in the trap. Is this product non-toxic or not? Also, what is the difference between this product and Provoke Rat Attractant 8?
AThe Provoke Rat Attractant is non toxic. The reviewer was probably using a snap trap in combination with the Provoke. Provoke Rat Attractant will only attract the rats to the area where it is applied but will not harm them in any way. The number 8 after the Provoke Rat Attractant simply stands for the size of the bottle, which in this case is an 8 ounce bottle.

QWill using Provoke Rat attractant work better than peanut butter in the T-Rex traps?
Rats keep eating peanut butter out of T-Rex traps, will this give different results?
AIf the rats are actually eating the peanut butter out of the T-Rex Rat trap we recommend that you stick with peanut butter. If the rats have been able to eat the peanut butter but not get caught (very unusual with the T-Rex trap), we recommend that you try to put a small smear of the peanut butter right on the trap peddle. This way the rat will have to actually stick its head into the trap and move the peddle to eat the peanut butter which of course will result in getting caught. You should note that the manufacturer of the T-Rex Rat Traps do not recommend using peanut butter in the T-Rex because the oils in the peanut butter can cause the plastic in the trap to breakdown. Unfortunately, once the rats have become accustomed to eating peanut butter they are not as likely to try the Provoke Attractant.
