    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.

    5 of 5 Stars   T-REX RAT TRAP
    By Ivette on 05/05/2017

    The T-REX Rat Trap works so well and it's so easy to use! I was really apprehensive about getting a traditional rat trap. I never used one and was scared that it might trigger while trying to set it. But the T-Rex rat trap was so easy set. I got that rat first try! I highly recommend the T-Rex rat trap from DoMyOwnPestControl. They have everything you need and the prices are very reasonable. They get an A+ from me!

    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.

    1 of 5 Stars   Inhumane
    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.

    5 of 5 Stars   Very Snappy Traps
    By David on 06/05/2017

    These are great traps with a hair trigger release. Much better than wood snap traps. Have to be careful loading them as they are very sensitive.

    1 of 5 Stars   Things run off
    By Rose on 07/01/2016

    So, we set this, tied it down as others recommended. The T Rex chomps down on the critter, and they are able to pull themselves free because the critters use the tie down as traction to keep pulling themselves out. Not good.

    4 of 5 Stars   Rat Trap
    By Henrietta on 03/15/2013

    I purchased this for a friend as they have used this before with great success. It's easy to use (but be careful not to snap it on your fingers) and immediately breaks the neck of the rodent.

    5 of 5 Stars   Trapper T-Rex
    By Gen on 07/06/2016

    Having a continual chipmunk problem with them burrowing under sidewalks, driveway and into 4' window wells, I've been using an old exterior Protecta bait & trap station that had a snap trap that finally gave way. I purchased the T-Rex as a replacement and so far after 12 catches, it works great. Fits into Protecta trap compartment perfectly, the bait tray is ample sized. Easier and safer to set compared to wire snap traps and cleans up easy too with the large setting lever. Highly recommended.

    By Val on 07/08/2016

    Used this for tree rat in attic. Baited with peanut butter and Provoke Rat Attractant. Three days later, success. Easy to bait, easy to cock. East to unload. I like it a lot.

    5 of 5 Stars   Excellent trap
    By Virginia on 03/13/2017

    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   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   not really sure
    By F on 10/06/2014

    Pro: its not sensitive like the original wood traps where I think im going to rip a finger off trying to set it up. Very easy to use No metallic smell which im told is good Con: so im not sure if they had nyc rodents in mind when making this. It must not be a bad product because it did catch the rodents but now the problem was it never caught them "dead". Every rodent ive caught had a bout 2-3 traps on itself. One on his tail, feets, side belly?? It was odd yet funny and then felt miserable that the thing was still alive. Overall I have to say the wood trap is you best bet. Just use proper bait and sesame oil of some sort of fragrance to conceal the smell of metallic parts.

    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   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   Awesome!
    By Sean on 06/13/2015

    I'd struggled with wooden traps and nearly lost my fingers trying to set them! This was so easy to set and has a fantastic spring action. It's worked a treat so far

    5 of 5 Stars   Bait lasts a long time...
    By Kathi on 01/23/2016

    This was the solution I was looking for - a bait station with a non poisonous trap inside for the chicken yard. 5 so far and the peanutbutter is still in there.

    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!

    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   Trapper T-Rex Rat Trap
    By Todd on 07/06/2016

    I love the ability to get to the bait cup without having to hold the trap open. That with the easy set and ability to use a zip tie to hold it down make this my go to with the mini T-Rex for mice.

    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.

    5 of 5 Stars   Caught one on the FIRST day!
    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!

    5 of 5 Stars   Better trap
    By Laura on 01/30/2016

    This trap is far better than the standard models. It killed rats instantly. It got a small mouse and the whole body exploded. The rats were able to steal bait from other types of traps, but not this one.

    5 of 5 Stars   Easy to Set & Maintain
    By Norm on 02/11/2016

    These traps are so much easier to maintain than the wooden bail type, and also easier to keep clean. I'm on my 3rd case in 2 years. Also easier to anchor or screw to a 2x4 or piece of plywood

    5 of 5 Stars   Trex Review
    By Dennis on 03/06/2017

    Trex worked as advertised. I purchased two. I set them up and caught two the first night. No catches since, The rest of the rats may have seen them and wised up, but they worked great and were easy to empty and reload..
