In my rodent control experience, mice are easy to trap but rats don't go into boxes. Do you have success with rats going inside these plastic cages that electrocute them?
Second, how long does it take to electrocute them – is it a slow process? Thank you so much.
First, we have had great success getting both rats and mice to enter the electrocution devices. One trick that can be used is to set some pet food or bird seed at the entry way without having the device activated. Leave it out this way till the target animals remove your offering. Place some more out but this time place it just inside the device. After they remove this next portion with the trap not activated, set out some more food with it still turned off but this time place the food all the way to the back of the box. We have found they will always enter. Once the food is taken this deep in the box, you can then set some more of the food out but this time do so with the electrocution device armed and ready for action.
Second, you can see our "simulated kill" video which shows in real time the entire process from start to finish.
