    I remember seeing one of those (a very long time ago) but it didn't work right , the long arm was bent sideways from who knows what...I think they had used it in the garage and the car backed over it or something like that...probably a model A, lol...the guy who had it had a feed store back in the day...they didn't use poison around the feed he said...old stuff, always big and heavy . No rat is gonna steal that

    What kind of animal would eat a specific organ. I’ve found rats I’ve trapped with only a small hole in the mid section.

    Well I set the trap up as you showed on utube. That critter mice is clever he/she took the cheese/peanut butter. I have the victory mouse trap. Congratulations on you baby girl. May God bless her and your family with health, success and happiness. P.S. I really wish I could obtain that mouse bucket the one that you got from the inventor but not really to sell. Ugh

    For your allergies take Perfect 7 it works. For poison ivy or poison oak, Brown vinegar works instantly. I'm telling you from experience.

    Awwww!! Shawn I’m one of those recent Female viewers that you’ve acquired..☺️. I also live in a rural area, and worked in a large machine shop (prior to going back to my dream job as a paramedic....took the machine shop manager position cause of new paid 3x more) and I had major rodents both at home and at the shop and I’ve even experimented with many of my own trap designs. BTW I have also found IMHO the only commercial rat trap on the market that works and works consistently (I’ve modded that baby too LOL). But it’s nice to see I’m not the only crazy RAT trap lady. BTW congrats sooo much on your new daughter to be, I hope she brings you and your family sooooo much happiness. Keep up what you do so great, especially whie

    I called my local animal control to confirm it is legal to live trap, but to my utter disbelief, if you trap a Possum, it is illegal to relocate the Possum I had already trapped. I was given two choices and one suggestion, I could either release the Possum where I had trapped it, or I could dispatch of the Possum, and the suggested manor of dispatchment was a shovel to the head, as it is illegal to discharge a firearm within the city limits. Go Figure

    I don't understand how all Shaw's barns are teeming with mice and rats!? What a funny coincidence - they world's biggest mouse/rat catcher has barns teeming with mice and rats! Funny I wonder always before his videos when he says all his barns are riddled with mice, how effective traps really are?

    Gidday Shawn from Australia. We have lots of mice problems, having seeds on back veranda for chooks. We tried the 427 year old mouse trap that works, but the mice get smart and stop using it.. so is this one easy to build? do you have any plans other those in this video. *we paused it and snap shot it and printed it* but its still pretty hard.. do you have any modern updates on building this little unit.. we sure need it.. ps. they dont eat baits. We try not to kill them, but its getting plague levels so unfortunately we have to dispatch them to heaven.. cheers John

    If you put antifreeze in the water, the rats drown immediately, since antifreeze takes away the surface tension of the water.


    WHATEVER GOES FOR ME2 months ago

    This is a great invention given the time it was invented. Plus, it will last for a longer time since it doesn't need batteries nor electricity and the materials used are more durable. I wish this genius mouse and rat traps were still sold today. It easier to catch more mice and rats instead of using the smaller mouse traps. Plus, the dead mice or rats are out of view.

    Why are all these amazing traps made 20 years, and 120 years old, No longer SOLD! Mice and Rat problems are sooo bad all over the place, and to have one that resets itself, no snapping your fingers, no poison, and you can't even buy one! Why are people not recreating and reapplying for the patent??

    Try this for poison oak (PO), I'm allergic and this works for me, it eliminates the oils that cause a reaction: After you have been exposed to PO rinse off the skin with cold water, no soap, no hot water. Soap will get rid of your own oils that help protect you and cold water will close the pores on your skin sealing it from the PO. A cold stream works really well.

    I'm happy you don't have a cat. People don't realize how bad domestic cats are to the environment. They kill 24.3 billion birds annually, and have made 33 species go extinct world wide. People need to realize that stuff. I noticed it when my mom's friend got 2 cats. All the pretty finches went away. The blue tailed skinks I used to catch and let go went away. Killing prey animals pushes out the natural predators that live in that area. If you are thinking about getting a cat and have property, please don't. Enjoy the animals that live right there. Sure they might not come into your house and cuddle. But they are wild, native, and natural. I love feeding every type of wild animals on our property. We just have peafowl, chickens, an aviary with parrots, and a pond with native Fish. Thanks for reading if you did. And spread the word!
