This is where Mr. Rat enters.
There are three electric plates for him to step on, powered by 4 C batteries. I keep wanting to try it and see how hard the jolt is. I won't/
The directions say to put peanut butter inside one of these holes. I did.
Sounds vicious, doesn't it?
I installed the batteries. A green light blinks once to show the trap is set and working. A green light blinks continuously when a rat has been electrocuted. The light turns red when the trap needs a new battery. This unit says it will kill 50 + rats. Oh, goody! He assured me it did work.
Now, I am $60 poorer. I know, a rat trap or two would be $10. But, I tried and cannot pull the killing bar back to cock the trap. The guy was concerned I would break a finger. My fingers are little. He said he almost broke a thumb. His hands and fingers were really huge. If it hurt him, it would break me!
Everyone recommended rat bait. The problem with that is, my chickens might come across a poisoned rat. Then they would die.
This makes it hard to pay bills since I had to not pay a bill to buy a rat trap. The rat rattles my nerves. It rattles my nerves because I just know it is in something I love, chewing it up, making a nest!
Got any rodent stories? Have you ever used one of these electric rat killers? Know anyone who has used the device? Is it any good?
