Many only buy rat traps to solve household pest problems, of which is does. However, it his far great power than just that. It can be used to trap small game, like, squirrels, chipmunks, small rabbits, small opossums, and most birds. It can also trap moles, shrews, weasels, small mink, bats, rats (duh!), and such alike in size. Rat Traps cost less than 2 dollars a piece, and they are much large and more powerful than a mouse trap. It is much like a body grip trap but on wood.

<p>I staple the rat trap from below and it comes out right along the edge of the kill bar. I use rather large staples. You can also add staples by glueing them onto the board (it holds) , if you don't have a strong enough stapler to go through the wood. </p>
