Rat snap traps are amongst the most popular ways to deal with rodents. If you have a rodent problem, whether a small infestation or something large scale, these types of traps can do the trick. They will catch and kill a rodent instantly and humanely.
When on the search for a snap trap, though, you might come across a few different kinds. With the differences in design, you might not be certain what to choose. Knowing more about each can make this process significantly easier on you.
Luckily, it is easy to learn about each and choose the right one. Anyone can begin the steps now and get rid of their rodent problem soon enough.
Types of Snap Traps
When people think of snap traps, they likely think of the traditional types of traps. The wooden traps with a metal bar that extends out, with a plate for bait. That is the traditional, common design for the traps. These are still available, too. You can go through major retailers to find them just about anywhere. They are highly effective and will work exactly as expected.
Another option is the plastic traps. These look a lot like the wooden ones, but with a plastic body instead. They, too, have a metal bar that comes down on a rodent’s head when it triggers the trap. They work essentially the same. There is also the clam trap. These are snap traps, as well, but they work somewhat differently. While the snap traps above use a bar to kill the rodent, clam traps suffocate it. When the rodent triggers the trap, they are stuck and cannot breathe. It becomes painful for them and they die soon after.
Snap traps work well in general. Depending on the type of rodent, you can expect great results. The typical bar snap traps are the most common, but, thanks to how clean the kill is, clam traps are a great choice, too. So long as you bait and place the trap well, you should see positive results. The rodent will go after the bait and will find themselves caught, dying immediately or quickly. If you are considering snap traps, the options available are going to work. It depends on what you want to do and the way you want to go about this. Whatever you choose, you can expect some positive results if you do this properly.
