I bought an electronic mouse trap at Lowes out of desperation. I wasn't interested in killing the rodent, but couldn't abide having him inside the house. I soon found out the trap was meant for mice and what I have is a rat. The trap was too smaill and the rat ripped the top off the device and grabbed the bait (much like the Hulk ripping the roof off of a car and grabbing a miscreant.)
Sunday, before the Super Bowl, I stopped by Zingers and bought two rat traps. They are huge. I haven't yet set them up as they are intimidating. The young female clerk was sizing me up and down when I bought them. Buying rat traps in this day and age is like buying condoms at the drug store in the 50's. It's pretty embarassing.
