How to Use a Mechanical Rat Trap by TOMCAT

Rats. It’s a chilling thought. Could a home as nice as yours have rats in it? You don’t always see them, but they leave clear signs. You might start noticing droppings in the pantry, grease marks on the baseboards, or chew marks in food packaging. First of all, don’t feel overwhelmed. Tomcat can help you deal with the problem.TOMCAT mechanical traps provide a quick and effective way to kill rodents that you can see working immediately. Rodents are creatures of habit—they like to take the same path to and from their nests. So your best bet for catching them is to intercept them as they travel back and forth. Target areas near refrigerators, in pantries, along baseboards, or in attic spaces.Tomcat offers highly effective, easy-to-use solutions to lure and kill rats. TOMCAT SecureKill and Snap Rat Traps can be set easily and allow for easy disposal.Each of these traps is set similarly. For the TOMCAT SecureKill Rat Trap, place peanut butter or TOMCAT Attractant Gel into the bait well prior to setting the trap. Pull the set bar back until you hear a click to let you know that the trap is set. The Rat Snap Trap has a removable cup so baiting can also be done prior to setting the trap. After baiting, open the trap by pinching, like opening a clothespin, until you hear a click to indicate it has locked into place.  Place Rat traps perpendicular to walls or other objects, with the “teeth” of the trap facing the wall. Rodents coming from either direction will step on the trigger, which releases the trap.To trap roof rats, attach snap traps to pipes, poles, rafters and other hard-to-reach places where they travel. Don’t forget about attics in parts of the country where roof rats are prevalent.Both of these traps allow for disposal without touching the rat. The SecureKill Rat Trap has a grab tab for easy disposal. For easy clean up, dispose of the trap and the rodent together. If you would prefer to reuse the trap, pinch the trap open and drop the dead rodent in the trash.Wooden traps are a time-tested, quick, and effective solution for capturing rodents, but, as with any bait or trap, proper placement is important.   Set the trap close to where you want to place it, such as in a cupboard. Apply an attractant to the metal bait trigger. Position the pin away from the trap and carefully pull the spring-loaded U-shaped metal bar back to the opposite end and hold the bar firmly with one hand. With the other hand, place the metal pin over the U-shaped bar and insert the curved end of the pin into the left slot of the bait trigger. Carefully position the trap without releasing it. Place the baited end of the trap flush against a wall. Once a rodent steps on the trigger, the pin releases and the U-shaped bar snaps back, killing it.To dispose of a trapped rodent, wear disposable gloves. For easy removal, throw the trap and the dead rodent into the trash together. If you would prefer to reuse the trap, pull back the U-shaped bar to release the carcass into the trash. TIP: How many traps should you use? That depends on the number of rats. If you suspect you have more than one or two, place several traps where you’ve seen signs of them. You can set as many as a dozen if you suspect you have a significant problem. Traps should be set 5 to 10 feet away from each other.If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center to speak with one of our experts: http://?sid=SM00112&medium=social_networks&campaign=tomcat_helpcenter_yt&source=youtube&type=NA&term=NATo find information on the full range of solutions, check out the Mechanical Traps product page or try the TOMCAT Prowler Solution Finder to determine the right trap for you:http://?sid=SM00130&medium=social_networks&campaign=tomcat_ratmechanical_yt&source=youtube&type=NA&term=NA&utm_nooverride=1Or for help identifying a pest and finding the solution that’s best for you, try our Tomcat Prowler Tool:http://?pageUrl=tomcatProwler&sid=SM00121&medium=social_networks&campaign=tomcat_prowlertool_yt&source=youtube&type=NA&term=NA&utm_nooverride=1Additional ProductsMouse Traps:http://?sid=SM00122&medium=social_networks&campaign=tomcat_allmousetraps_yt&source=youtube&type=NA&term=NA&utm_nooverride=1Rat Traps:http://?sid=SM00123&medium=social_networks&campaign=tomcat_allrattraps_yt&source=youtube&type=NA&term=NA&utm_nooverride=1Mole & Gopher Traps:http://?sid=SM00124&medium=social_networks&campaign=tomcat_moleandgopher_yt&source=youtube&type=NA&term=NA&utm_nooverride=1Other Pests:http://?sid=SM00125&medium=social_networks&campaign=tomcat_otherpests_yt&source=youtube&type=NA&term=NA&utm_nooverride=1
