THE TRANSPARENT TRAP
Our transparent GorillaTraps rat trap enters the race with a novel concept, in which we use the visual abilities of rats to fight them. Combine the transparent trap with your conventional traps – so the rats can’t escape from you!
Practical and robust
Do you have problems catching rats because the traps are avoided? The transparent Gorilla Trap is your solution, as it perfectly complements the use of normal traps!
In this video you can see a prototype of the transparent trap, as well as two conventional black traps.
As you can see, the rat runs completely over the transparent trap, because he does not notice the trap. In the video, the transparent trap does not trigger, because it was only placed for testing.
HOW THE RAT SEES THE TRAP
Compared to conventional black traps, rats cannot see the transparent trap properly and are therefore not deterred by the object. The picture on the right shows how the rat perceives the trap.
Rats cannot see spatially in focus and are almost colour-blind. Due to the smooth, almost structure-free – and now also colourless – surface of the trap, the catching rate is increased even more.
HOW IS THE TRANSPARENT TRAP USED?
The transparent trap is most effective when used in combination with the normal GorillaTraps. Where the rats avoid the normal trap, the transparent trap closes because it is not perceived as such by the harmful rodents.
It is also recommended to support the application with NARA spray. In this way, the rats no longer have a chance to perceive the traps through their smell. The animals try to avoid the normal traps as they are a visible barrier and then they take the path over the transparent traps.
