Ouell has risen the bar. 411 is equally effective in the destruction of grey squirrels, weasels, stoats, rats and similar vermin. Strong construction, galvanized, very light and easy to set. It will kill outright. Officially approved... Certifié Québec. If approved by UK standards, 411 would compete against Kania 2000 and Elgeeco's Procull in reducing the UK's grey squirrel population.
Few signs of rats around the garden compost.....in past years have put out poison but gets expensive and don't like the thought of what else may get a hold of the poison. So after looking on here bought a couple of Fenn traps and made up a box to put them in. Strap hinges, handle and catch made from an old seat-belt.
It works a treat...got this monster today.
Not having done my home work properly, I inadvertantly bought a fake Fenn Mk4 from someone in the Midlands. This guy turns out to be a regular trickster with the way he markets his fake Fenn traps. He calls them Fens or Fen/Springer.
Anyway, the first thing I noticed was that the spring was nowhere near as strong as the real Fenn. So I tried it out over time and the fake made some kills but also some escapes.
Here is a video of the fake in action followed by the real Fenn Mark 4.
Have any of you had a similar experience?
I want to set a couple of rat traps on a precautionary basis. It would make life easier if a younger teenager could check them sometimes. I have some Fenns but I do not want her messing about with spring traps just yet.
I am currently considering getting a Monarch rat trap. Are they a reliable trap or a bit gimmicky? Any tips on using them?
Iv got a little matter to take care of this week and i need some HELP, there is an old silage pit that is been taken out in a week or so by track machine and at the minute is home to a lot of rats. For the last 4 days i have 8 cage traps set with absolutly nothing caught using soaked dog nuts as bait, i have caught them before not a problem using the same nuts but as of late they seem to take no notice, now what i intend to do is get 8 reciepies and ill put 1 in each of the traps and see which one works best. ill get pics up tomorrow of the cage's and the area i will be trapping so if you think you have the perfect method ill try it out and will keep it updated daily.
once i get the pics up id like to know if the trap should be covered over to make a tunnel effect?, should i cover the floor of the trap with earth/sand? etc.
they must be lightened off before the machinery move in to stop them re homing in the building's around.
