The Raticator story: inventing the proverbial ‘better mousetrap’
They say necessity is the mother of invention, and it was indeed a great need that prompted ‘gentleman cowboy’ Robert Noe of Southern California to invent the world’s best rodent control device – the authentic Raticator Plus and Raticator Max – manufactured by Trapco Ltd. You can now find authentic Raticators (don’t be fooled by knock-offs!) in more than 2,000 retail outlets in the U.S. and in more than a dozen nations across the globe.
Like many of us, Mr. Noe found himself in a losing battle against marauding mice and rats that chewed up equipment and caused serious, costly damage to property on his ranch. He tried everything to battle them. Archaic snap-type mouse and rat traps left a bloody mess on those rare occasions they actually worked. Inhumane glue boards were “ineffective and just plain disgusting”. And while Mr. Noe refused to use poisons due to the widespread, secondary poisoning of wildlife and pets, he nevertheless lost two beloved dogs to common rat poison left out by well-intentioned neighbors.
How to kill rats without poison? The answer finally arrived one morning when Mr. Noe, sipping a glass of orange juice from his orchard, discovered that a hapless gopher had quickly met his Maker after popping out of his hole and inadvertently touching his nose to an exposed “hot” wire on Mr. Noe’s horse fence. No blood. No gore. The light bulb went off, and the proverbial ‘better mouse and rat trap’ was born. Mr. Noe, whose father and uncle invented the first automobile safety belt, decided he, too, had stumbled onto something that, if applied to mice and rats, would certainly make the world a better place.
Before long, Mr. Noe said good-bye to a distinguished 30-year corporate career topursue–amidst a few raised eyebrows, to say the least–development of the very best in rodent control.
Both the Raticator Plus and the Raticator Max humanely exterminate the rodent by delivering a quick and deadly shock to both mice and rats.
In the more than 2 decades since the first battery operated mouse and rat trap appeared on the shelf, it’s been through numerous improvements. The Raticator isguaranteed to really work and it’s backed by online and live tech support at 800-PEST-ZAP that’s 1-800-737-8927.
1. Does It Work?
It’s our most frequently asked question and we’re proud to say, emphatically yes! Our Raticators humanely kill both rats and mice.
2. Is It Guaranteed To Work?
You Bet! We proudly back our Raticators with a 30 day money back guarantee when purchased from this website (with proof of purchase) that they will work including a six month parts and labor warranty. All we require is you call us first at 800-PEST-ZAP (1-800 737- 8927) so we can trouble shoot. Nearly every concern we can resolve by phone. You have nothing to lose – except your rodent problem!
3. Is It Simple To Use?
Absolutely! Just lure the rodent into the Raticator with any dry bait you choose. The high-tech system senses the rodent’s presence and delivers enough electrical energy to quickly and humanely dispatch the mouse, rat or other rodent.
4. What’s The Difference Between the Raticator Max and the Raticator Plus?
The Max utilizes a dramatically new Infrared Sensing System. This patent pending development along with a newly designed delivery system provides the customer with a 100% humane kill rate combined with approximately 1 year battery life. (uses 4 “D” batteries)
The Raticator Plus utilizes a traditional sensing circuit coupled with an improved 6 month battery life ( uses 4 “AA” batteries)
5. Why Is The Raticator Better Than Any Other Rodent Control?
Quite simply, the Raticator works without the harsh side effects of other types of rodent control. It kills humanely with 100% efficiency (Max), it is easy to set up and no poisons are used, making it much safer for your home and the environment. Cleanup is a snap; simply pick up the unit and slide the dead rodent into any appropriate receptacle – never touch a dead rodent again!
6. Can Raticator Be Used Outside?
Yes, as long as the unit doesn’t get wet. We offer the “Gimme Shelter” to protect Raticator from the elements.
7. Is Raticator Safe For Pets?
Generally yes it is – and much safer than alternatives like poisons and snap traps.
If your pet is small enough to place a paw or nose in the trap and contact both of the plates (almost 7in inside the trap) they would get a localized shock on their paw or nose–nothing further. Kittens and puppies small enough to crawl into the trap should be kept away as their bodies could complete the circuit if they enter the trap. One option if you have small pets is to place a 2″ piece of duct tape over the top of the opening. Rats and mice can still get in, but most smaller pets will not be able to.
8. Does Raticator Work On Squirrels, Gophers, Possums, Raccoons Etc. ?
The Raticator is designed to work on rats and mice. However, we have had a number of customers who have used the Raticator to effectively control similar sized rodents other than mice and rats. Be sure to read our tip for trapping larger rodents.
9. What Should I Use For Bait?
We recommend using what the rodents are currently eating as the first bait to use and experimenting with other baits to see what they like. (Close off access to their current food source for a more effective strategy.) Examples of bait rodents love include pet food, scrambled eggs, peanut butter and, believe it or not, orange peel. Of course any wet bait should be put in a plastic bottle cap or something similar -this protects the plates from getting wet/dirty and potentially shorting the unit.
10. The Raticator Saves You Money!
Our Raticators are reusable and designed to last! Enhanced electronics offer extended battery life and provide you with years of reliable performance.
11. Don’t Be Fooled By Knock-offs!
We are the inventors of the only Raticator. We provide products that really work – we guarantee it! We’ve been around for more than 2 decades.
