Please note, there are two different kinds of rat traps. There are the ones that kill the rats after they have been baited in, and then there are the ones that keep them in a enclosed box. Some models of enclosed boxes do kill the rat as well, so be sure to read about what the trap does before using it.

If you use too much bait, then the rat will get full before making it to the trap. Another tip that you can not forget is to never move your trap after placing it.
