Snap traps are still essential for effective pest control. Especially in areas where live trapping makes little or no sense. The various Animal Welfare Acts require that the use of snap traps fulfil important criteria. An important aspect is the avoidance of animal suffering.
If a snap trap is triggered prematurely by the so-called "lock", it cannot be guaranteed that the mouse or rat is already completely on the pressure plate. Particularly with rat traps, it happens time and time again that the rodent is prevented from escaping only by an individual limb caught in the trap. So, the animal suffers unnecessarily.
New types of traps, which are powerful, effective, target-oriented and, for rats, also adjustable in sensitivity, were needed. The development of the Gorilla traps was therefore necessary and has now proved to be unrivalled.
The Gorilla Traps mousetrap is certified according to §18 of the German Animal Protection Act in combination with the Snapbox and is therefore the only snap trap on the market.
The rat trap can be adjusted in sensitivity, so fulfilling the need of pest controllers to prevent unnecessary releases.
In pest control, snap traps should always be kept in closed boxes so that other animals, children and also adults are protected.
Honestly, we never intended to build traps. But, the search for the perfect trap for our digital eMitter sensors and NARA® monitors finally led us here as we couldn't find anything in the world that met our standards. German engineering means probably the highest quality professional trap in the world. We are proud we are the only mouse snap trap to have received the §18 IfSG certification, as "humane" pest control is extremely important to us. Gorilla Traps are a non-toxic and accredited humane alternative and therefore the first "go-to" product for use against rodents. Poison? You can do without it!
The Gorilla rat and mouse traps meet the requirements of the German Animal Welfare Act and are unique for professional pest control due to their reliability and efficiency.
AIB confirms that Gorilla traps, as a standalone version, or in combination with eMitter digital trap control system and the Nara products are in line with the requirements of the AIB International Consolidated Standards.
In addition to the usual Gorilla Traps quality, the big brother also has some more features on board. On the underside the spring tension of the pressure plate can be adjusted, so that the trap only triggers on rats or even lighter animals.
The pressure plate also has passive sensor technology, which uses an eMitter system to ensure that you can read the exact status of the trap and also detect when rodents are running over an unsprung trap.

For effective surveillance, we have designed our NARA Lure to fit perfectly into the GorillaTraps snap traps.
