Rats in the sewer system no longer have to be a ticking bomb under food companies, sensitive production companies or our private homes.

Ratél has developed a mechanical rat trap that makes it possible to completely block off rats' access to certain parts of the sewer system while killing invading rats. It creates the opportunity for a completely new and far more strategic approach to rat control than before.

Get sewer traps set up

Contact Ratél and learn how we can help you with a lot of sewer traps for rats. Precisely because the sewer traps are mechanical, no toxins that can end up in the wrong places are used.

There is full control over where the mechanical sewer traps are set up and if they do not catch enough rats, they can be moved.

How does the sewer trap work?

Ratél's mechanical rat trap is mounted in the sewage trap's wastewater drain. The trap is robustly designed to work in the sewer environment. It is easy to install from ground level. The rats cannot pass the trap, but are led up into a killing chamber, where they are killed humanely by means of a CO2-driven piston. After killing, the rats are flushed out with the wastewater. The same trap can be used for different sewer pipe dimensions.

The use of a CO2 powered piston to kill rats is far more humane and environmentally friendly than the use of poison. Furthermore, problems of resistance are avoided, which otherwise can have fatal consequences for the control in a given area, because the toxins used may lose their intended effect.

Built-in rat block in a sewer trap

The trap also works as a rat block, which means that rats can't under any circumstances access the parts of the sewer system where the traps are mounted. This is also the case if a malfunction should occur. The trap's damper is made of fiberglass, just as the built-in lock prevents the rats from lifting them.

The trap can be mounted, operated and dismantled from the surface without anyone having to descend into the sewer and does not block the flow of waste water.
