Gas canister says 9 strikes, still no dead rats
Early test correlates strikes more closely with canister replacement than lure replacement. Bodies may be removed by other predators, tho disposed bodies from other traps on this line tend to stay around. Strike counter checked weekly.

Reset lure and new canister 3 weeks ago, 3 recorded kills – two rats and one mouse body lying on the ground! So awesome.

I have had a look at my last two seasons of data and the A24 trap is outperforming my victor rat traps at 4 kills to one just based on the body counts. If I counted strikes (assuming bodies were being removed) then it might be even eight times more effective.
Great product, definitely worth the extra money. Go buy one.
