    5 of 5 Stars   Works well
    By Linda on 12/12/2010

    The trap is easy to set and fill with bait. A few times I found it in the closed position with no rodent. But I think it's a vast improvement over the old wooden traps.

    2 of 5 Stars   T-Rex Rat Trap
    By Robert on 03/27/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I had these traps for two weeks and haven't trapped a rat yet. Changed bait in the traps and put them in different places, nothing. The old conventional trap that has a spring bar has trapped four rats using the same bait. Why doesn't the new ones work, I do not know. Will keep using them and hopefully they will trap a rat. Any help please.

    5 of 5 Stars   Trapper T rex
    By Sally on 09/29/2015

    Have used these for years. Just had a new outbreak of critters (tree taken down/nice cushy dead wood). Bought 4 new T-Rex's and 11 dead rats in 6 days. A little lull, then 4 more. No muss, no fuss. Dead rats!!

    5 of 5 Stars   Simple and Effective
    By James on 04/03/2013
    Verified Purchase

    One of the simplest mouse/rat traps to bait and set. Just load your bait of choice, pull back, and place.. My bait of choice has been peanut butter. I think the real key with these traps is the placement. Look for evidence of where the mouse/rat is moving around and place the trap as close to the pathways as possible.

    5 of 5 Stars   T Rex Rat Trap
    By Brittany on 12/29/2014
    Verified Purchase

    After I saw a rat in our trash for a couple days, I decided to order the TRex Rat Trap. Even though it's made of plastic, it certainly gets the job done. I was worried that it would leave the rat suffering or clip a limb but to my surprise, it worked perfectly. All you have to do is place food in the center and set it outside. I set the trap before bed and woke up to a dead rat. It was quick and painless. The rat we caught was the length of my hand so I wouldn't suggest this type of trap if you have a huge "cat-sized" rat. Other than that, it's a wonderful trap. Shipping was FAST too!!!

    5 of 5 Stars   Red Rats
    By Mike on 07/26/2011

    There are no rats where I live. Rather, from time to time, my outbuildings become infested with red squirrels. They chew everything to pieces and haul in bushels of bedding material (leaves, grass, etc.). They also cache vast amounts of alder or spruce cones. The T-Rex is the best solution. It is easy to use, dependably and mercifully dispatching the little devils. Over the last six days T-Rex has helped me remove seven red squirrels from my buildings. It helps to attach the traps to something solid with a length of light chain or wire. When the jaws snap down on the squirrel there is always a "death spasm" that can propel trap and squirrel some distance.

    2 of 5 Stars   Did not invent a better trap
    By Bryan on 11/08/2014

    I have "killed" 3 large rats with this trap. That is the good news. Bad news, none of them died because of the trap. I had to kill them by hand. It's not strong enough. 2/3 rats dragged the trap at least 20 feet from where it had been set and the only reason they stopped was because it got stuck. Do yourself a favor and buy the old-fashion wood traps. They work much better.

    5 of 5 Stars   RAT TRAP WITH RESULTS
    By Foxxygranny on 07/08/2015

    The T-Rex Rat Trap produces results every time! When baited with peanut butter, this trap will catch even more than one rat at a time! It is quite an efficient rat trap! I love it! Son has caught up to nine rats so far in less than 2 weeks' time. I'm so glad I discovered the T-Rex Rat Trap!

    5 of 5 Stars   Great Trap
    By Ars on 12/14/2015

    Got these, baited them with peanut butter and within an hour had caught a rat. Got more over the next several days. Cleared out the rat problem. Simple to set and use. Definitely zip tie them to a piece of 2X4 to anchor them.

    I have used these to keep the rat population down around my hen house. They work fantastic just make sure you keep them away from the chickens. I recommend you get the black house to put the trap in so no other animals get caught.

    By Tammy on 04/13/2016

    It worked - CAUGHT the rat, but didn't kill it. The rat was trapped by its head, then ran around my garage dragging the tap with it for 24 hours, until I could get a neighbor to come and put it out of it's misery.

    1 of 5 Stars   dont work
    By Jim on 03/15/2016

    I caught 8 rats with this trap, but only 4 were dead. Of the 4 alive, 2 were caught only by their arms and I released them. The other 2 were caught by their heads, the trap was clamped on their necks, and they still were running around (luckily I tied the trap to a stake). I drowned those 2 rats in a bucket of water. This trap does not have enough spring force and I think it is inhumane, plus it is no fun to deal with a half dead rat.

    2 of 5 Stars   Fierce looking trap, but no rat.
    By Gunnha on 10/29/2014

    I found my back porch full of rat droppings and bought 3 of these T-Rex's. After cleaning out the porch, set the traps with peanut butter, I waited. All 3 traps got tripped in the morning, but no rats. Waited again, again, and again. 2 weeks now, and every night the traps got sprung. Still no rats. The only good thing is that the rats don't seem to hang around after setting off the traps (the traps make a hell of a bang) and I have a lot less rat droppings to wash off. For that I gave T-Rex the extra star.

    This is the same trap the pros use. That is how I found it. I caught one of the little bastards the other day with a Snickers bar. It's a better mouse trap.

    By Robert on 07/25/2012

    I have had reasonable success in trapping wood (pack) rats, but they are bigger than house (Norway) rats and have had some trouble with them escaping the trap. I have not found any trap that works better, however.

    5 of 5 Stars   Easy To Use
    By Red on 09/13/2014

    I am so happy with these trappers. They are easy to use and appear to kill the rats quickly. Removal of dead animals is simple and quick. I like that they are reusable. Using these traps and the bait are hundreds of dollars less expensive than using a service that does the same thing.

    4 of 5 Stars   Trapping the Critters
    By Walter on 12/01/2012

    Here in Florida we have an abundance of "Roof Rats or Palm Rats". They are small, and nocturnal. In the winter they move into my attic. I set out a line of Trapper T-Rex traps and got three the first night and two more the second night. The traps are simple to set and easy to empty. I am very happy with your product, the rats are not.

    5 of 5 Stars   Work great on chipmunks
    By Craig on 02/28/2013

    I had caught a red squirrel in a have a catch and release trap. I took it down to the creek a let it go in the middle of the bridge. Who would have thought it would jump in the creek. Well when my wife told me the chipmunks were eating her strawberries I didn't want to go thru that experience again so I got some of T-Rex Rat Traps. Boy do they work good. You have to tie them down so the critter doesn't run away with it if they don't get killed right away.

  • 5 of 5 Stars   So Far So Good
    By Michael on 11/17/2014
    Verified Purchase

    Caught 3 Rats in 10 days. Using peanut butter. Only had to replace the bait once but that was my fault because I reset the trap with the dead rats head on top of the trigger plate. This caused the trigger to be non functional so a rat came the following night and had a free meal. No matter, because I killed 2 more after that and I would bet that one of them was the guy who got the free meal. I just bought 6 more after reading that they break after a few kills. Still worth it. For you PETA people this is a clean fast kill. Designed to get them on the neck. So far 3 for 3. Better and safer than poison.

    By Linda on 09/06/2015

    The best....absolutely fantastic. Easy to set, easy to load, easy to empty and traps like a charm. Has a little cup in the bottom that you remove and fill with peanut butter, then replace in the trap. Squeeze it like a clothespin to set it. VOILA....that's it. Even has a slot for string to tie the trap in place.

    By Patty on 06/05/2016

    I set the trap out with peanut butter and a cranberry stuck in the middle of it and caught a pack rat on the first day. I then proceeded to get one everyday for 5 days in a row. Nice traps!
