    - Destruction to food or property (particularly gnaw marks).
    - Erratic pet behavior.
    - Neighbors also complaining about rodent issues.
    - Find oily 'rub' marks on baseboards and walls.

  • How often to apply

    If rat is not caught in 2-3 days, unset trap, place trap in alternate location where rat activity is suspected, and then reset the trap.

  • Where to Use

    Place trap near signs of rat activity. Some typical high rat activity areas are along walls in garages, attics, and basements.
