|Manufactured By:||Victor (Manufacturer Product Number: M326)|
The Victor Rat Trap Professional has a larger bait pedal that resembles cheese (though it can be baited with anything), is easier to set then normal traps, and also has a sensitivity setting that will prevent the trap from snapping due to vibrations in the environment, such as those caused by heavy machinery. Victor Rat Traps work very well and kill rats instantly. Snap traps work best when baited with sticky bait (i.e. peanut butter). 1 case contains 12 rat traps.
HOW TO SET THE TRAP:
1. Pull the bow (the spring loaded part) back, holding it down with the thumb of one hand.
2. With your other hand, take the locking bar (the long arm with the curve >in the end that is attached to the back of the trap) and lay it in the center of the spring. Make sure that the curved or cupped part faces downward.
3. Begin to tilt the cheese pedal upward. As you do, you'll notice that the tip the locking bar will engage inside a little box-like opening on the back of the cheese pedal.
4. Slowly release your grip on the bow, the force of which should hold the locking bar inside that little box on the pedal. The trap is now set.
5. There is an "S" and an "F" imprinted on the pedal itself. If you wish the trap to be more sensitive, position the locking bar towards the "S" side of the little box by sliding it that direction. "F" stands for firm (less sensitive).
How to Use Victor Rat Traps Effectively:
Most trapping efforts fail because too few mouse traps or rat traps are used. You'll probably need more traps then you think. Set enough traps to kill most of the population before the rodents begin to shy away from the traps. We recommend placing the traps every 2-3 feet along a wall, with the trap placed perpindicular to the wall. Rodents enter a home through holes the size of a dime and run along walls, not over open spaces.
1. Place traps perpendicular to the wall.
2. Place traps out unset, without bait, for a few days (even 1-2 weeks) so rodents can become familiar with them.
3. Place traps where rodent activity is seen (sign of chewing, droppings, runway, burrow).
4. Leave traps undisturbed for at least two days before moving to a new location.
5. Check traps daily and replace as needed.
6. Wear gloves when disposing of rodent.
Baits: These baits are favorites for mice and rats:
Mouse Bait: Peanut Butter, Cheese, Oats, Nesting Materials, Chocolate, Water (for live catch)
Rat Bait: Peanut Butter, Bacon, Fruits, Vegetables, Cereals, Meats, Acorns (Wood Rat)

They just work!
By Harvey on March 29, 2010
I live in a historic neighborhood. The neighborhood secret is that we have a rat problem. Every time there's construction in the area, the "residents" of our 80 year old plus sewer lines start hunting for new homes. Then it's time for the traps. The Victor professional is my favorite. The plastic trigger is much better than the metal ones. I set these out and bait them once or twice a day for two or three days. Then, once the rats think they're feeding stations, I bait and set them. Next morning I go out with the rubber gloves, a plastic bag and a short handled shovel. Rat and trap go into the bag, the bag into the trash, and the survivors look for a "friendlier" location.

DMOPC IS AWESOME
By Michael on February 18, 2012
Ordered 1 case of M326 rat traps and another item on wednesday morning and exactly 55 hrs later it was at my front door. This is the best company i have dealt with online as far as shipping , packaging, prices go . The M326 trap is awesome , bigger feed plate , 2 types of settings firm and sensative and very dependable. I highly recommend Do my own Pest Control to anyone who does their own extermination , they will not let you down.

Victor Rat Trap M326 (Big trigger)
By RJ on June 6, 2012
We enjoy feeding songbirds and live in an upscale suburban city. Free food & water in the back yard attracts rodents even in a "nice" place. Rats like to scurry along the rails of our wood fence with their whiskers brushing the fence on the way to the debris tray below the bird feeder. I drilled a hole in the wooden traps and screwed each to the rails here & there. No bait. The rats following the rail hit the big trigger paddle & assume ambient temperature.

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.

The traps are great and a good price.
We are winning!

This is the best rat trap that I have found for eradication of the vermin. I set them on sensative and use peanut butter. I was losing the war by using the regular conventional traps found in the hardware stores. Then a professonal pest control person told me that the traps with the yellow end were the best. He was correct.

Bought this product back in February 2012 , Very pleased with its performance , very strong , the sensitivity sitting is a plus when there is operating equipment in the area . Would purchase product for future task and strongly recommend it to others. Got decent kills with these traps.

I am very pleased with the quality of the items I recently purchased. The items were shipped in a timely manner but I received the wrong bait stations as I thought the Trex trap would fit in them. However, I was able to return the bait stations and the ones I needed were quickly sent and got full credit for the returned ones.

After much searching around, this is the best value and these are the best traps! NOT like the lousy, stiff ones from China! Highly recommended for assured results but DO read the tips, like letting them set out for a day or so before setting the spring.

Better Than the Original Trap
June 12, 2013
I used to use rat bait but became concerned about other domestic and wild animals getting the bait or a poisoned rat, so I switched to the Victor rat trap. The original traps worked pretty well but I like these even better. They have a large bait tray and, so, are easier to bait. I've had good success with peanut butter, setting a few traps along the fence line by our woodpile.They are much easier set. Also the original traps did not always kill the rats. In my experience, these do. The price is the same so, from now on, I'll use these pro traps.

I got a full dozen about a week ago and set them all. So far they have not worked. I put them all around the television set and Obama and the rest of the rats have avoided them. Just have to wait for next weasel season.

QWhat does the F and S setting on the yellow bait portion of the M326 Pro Rat Trap mean?
AThe "F" and "S" setting on the Victor M326 Rat Trap is for the sensitivity of the trap. The M326 is for use around machinery or places where the ground may vibrate and accidentally set off the trap. The "S" setting is for a more "sensitive" trigger. The "F" setting is for "Firm", which is what you would want to set it on if it was around machinery or a floor that was sensitive to movement and vibrating.
