Rochester Wildlife Removal Tip of the Month: Complete Run-Down on the Different Types of Minnesota Snap-Traps for Rats!

Indeed, Rochester rats happen to be the most annoying animal that could sneak into your house. Apart from disgusting a wide range of people, rats are also famous for sneaking into the kitchen cabinets and destroying all the stored food. Humans and rats have had a very annoying relationship ever since humans started building their very first homes 15000 years ago. So it is obvious why you would want to get rid of these little sneaky animals at all costs. A rat snap trap is one of the most commonly used rat traps all over the world. These traps are cheap and effective. 

Snap traps are also referred to as the traditional traps that are used to kill rats. The main purpose of a snap trap is to kill a rat as quickly as possible, without pain. Hence, that is where the term ‘snap’ comes in its name. So primarily, a good snap trap is designed so as to kill a rat almost exactly at the very moment that it is caught. While there are many other types of rat traps in the market such as cage traps, adhesive traps, and electric traps, the snap trap still happens to be the most popular. This is primarily because it is quite cheap and yet very effective in getting rid of them. Apart from that, snap traps are also very easily available in the market. 

The prime element of a Minnesota rat snap is the steel bar that is heavy and sturdy, designed so as to snap the back of the rat that is caught in it immediately. This void the rat of senses almost immediately and as a result of it, the animal feels no pain. This is the prime reason why rat snap traps are considered the most humane way of getting rid of one. On a rat snap trap, a bait is set up to attract the rats. This bait could be anything from cheese or a piece of bread. As a rat tries to remove the bait, a heavy steel bar storing a lot of potential energy from stretched springs gets released hence killing the rat instantly. 

The Rochester rat snap trap types

Well, there are different features in every rat snap trap depending on the manufacturer. However, there are three different primary types. These types include the following: 

1. Wooden snap trap

The wooden Rochester rat snap trap is the primary traditional snap trap. It has a mechanism similar to a jaw-like snap which is attached to a wooden rectangular piece. Since this type of rat snap trap can be used both indoors and outdoors, they are considered highly effective and universal. While it is very effective in getting rid of rats, setting it up is not very easy especially for first-time handlers. Carelessness while setting it up could actually result in an injury to the person himself/herself. 

2. Plastic snap trap

This is the second type of Minnesota rat snap trap which is made out of a plastic platform. While this type cannot be used both outdoors and indoors, it certainly has one major advantage over the wooden snap trap i.e it is quite easy to set up, unlike wooden snap traps. This type usually costs a little more than the wooden snap trap depending on the quality of the plastic.
