Will 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?


If 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.
