After about 3 weeks it caught a rat. Used peanut butter and sultanas as the bait. Easy to setup.
It sat undisturbed for 2 weeks. One misfire happened before it caught the rat.
Note - Death is not instant as claimed on the packaging.
Couldn't catch anything - waste of time and money.
Typically once a year we got a rat moving into our ceiling. Got sick of the old Ratsak approach, as we always wound up with the distinctive Rattus Extinctus aroma wafting down from the ceiling space. Knowing their entry route, bought a Nooski and baited it with PB. Nothing. After about three weeks of weekly refreshing the bait, I reverted to Ratsak baits. Dead rat (in ceiling again of course ...) but at least that method works.
Would have to be the single biggest failure of any device I have ever purchased.
I note others with success stories seem to be dealing with MICE. Maybe they work with them. Ours was the RAT version ...
I am never using anything else for inside my house
With 12 hours I had caught the 2 mice in my bedroom it is a fantastic product safe for kids and pets. Reasonable easy to use and the results are amazing
I've tried so many humane traps that didn't work.
Finally caved and bought a Nooski rat and a mouse trap, and some extra rings.
At first, nothing happened - except the rodents stole the mouse trap. The whole thing. Gone.
The rat trap didn't work with only peanut butter in the bait area, but I dropped a bit of tissue with pasta sauce dried on it and some oats, right to the end of the barrel. Results! I heard it trigger and the rat made a noise, but it was thoroughly dead, quickly, unlike the poor rat that ate my neighbous poison. :-(

100% kill rate
Living rural we have plenty of vermin from time to time. After too many normal snap traps being pilfered with no catch I tried this nooski. Seemed like a joke when I first saw it, but after using it I can definitely say it's a great design. Bit fiddly to load up but EVERY noose had a mouse. Only negative is the noose can pop when you placing the trap down, I fix this by placing a cotton bud under the trigger which is removed when the trap is in position.
Works really well...just a bit difficult to load
I bought 2 Mousetraps since I was tired of watching the little fellas run under the fridge and into the dishwasher cupboard. Thought I was getting an infestation!
Works really well...just a bit difficult to load. Took me an hour or so to get the hang of it, but I can do it now.
Caught 3 mice within 30 minutes (using peanut butter!). Very impressed. Put them in the compost...earth to earth... I AM a priest! But not a Buddhist (though sympathetic!)
Haven't caught any since, suspect I've got them all!!...Did I really need to buy two traps? .......
Has yet to catch anything
The trap has been armed and baited for 9 days. The rubber noose has been released 5 times, with 4 left lying in the bottom of the trap. No dead rat. These are definitely rats and not mice. Bait has been totally consumed on each occasion. I'm running out of Nutella and peanut butter. Don't know what happened to 5th 'noose'. Have tested the trip functionality of trap, which seems okay. So far a very expensive trap and no dead rats. They are still gorging on our Chook food as well.
Noosa a HIT.
Have been using nooska mouse traps and it never miss fire always catching a mice. The product is a little tricky for others in my family to set. But so far with peanut butter and bird seeds 100% success catching mice every time. Recommended product as I set the trap inside the bird cage and animals can't get caught in trap like other traps
Great rat trap, effective with no mess
Very pleased with this. Had a rat scurrying around under the house for a week I had tried it with uncooked nice no takers but within 2 hours of putting peanut butter as bait we nailed it.
I love how there was no blood or gore which made it easier for me to dispose of rat without heaving, and its more humane than glue or snap traps. Also cleverly it sort of fires the rat or mouse out of the trap, mine was almost a metre away. Apparently that means other rats don't associate the death with the trap so its reusable. They also get done before they even reach the bait so just need to load up another rubber ring not new bait.
$20 from bunnings well spent. I was going to throw poison under house but nervous about smell of dead rat in walls etc.
I bought this rat trap from Bunnings hoping it would catch a rat in my house. After a week I still hadn't caught a thing. I ended up buying a steel cage rat trap and caught 2 at once on the first night of use. I caught another 3 nights later in the steel trap. The Nooski caught absolutely nothing.
I’ve been trying to catch a mouse in my house using 4 different standard wooden traps with peanut butter and every time the mouse would lick the bait clean and get away. I saw the nooski trap at Bunnings and looked like it would work, caught it first night.
So easy to use and setup, and best part it’s reusable with plenty of rings.
Really good result
Brought the Nooski based on a few reviews online and didn't want to use poison. Had many mouse droppings in cabinet below sink and knew we had a few, so put 2 Nooskis in and within 30mins had 2 deceased mice. Really happy with outcome so far and looks as though they died relatively quickly.

Trap works - but sometimes not nice to see.
Caught first rat after 2nd night, once i changed food in bait trap. However there may have been 2 rodents as i found the one with the rubber ring had its kneck/ head chewed, app trying to save its buddy. Not the nicest thing to see.
Nooski Mouse Trap
I have used this trap for years. It does well, with some caveats. I have caught over 2 dozen mice over the years, when cold weather brings them inside- this is my go-to trap. Will not hurt humans, which is why we got this trap in the first place when our baby got old enough to get into things. It has a design flaw... plastic where the rubber ring sits in tension becomes weak and cracks. I have gotten free replacements. But the most concerning thing has to do with cruelty. Recently I have seen that if there is more than one mouse, the one...that doesn't "get it" will chew the head off of the one that does, seemingly to "free" his buddy from the rubber band around its neck! Very ghastly! Bad end for mouse family for sure...but it sure does work, almost every time.
Purchased in January 2012.
So far so good
Had a rat/mouse problem in chicken coop for a while, been using bait stations, rat sak etc.. whilst they are eating all the bait doesnt seem like they are going away. Bought the nooski from bunnings yesterday 2/3/19 put a bit of banana and peanut butter in it and bang. This morning 3/3 first rat caught. Reusing same bait now and new rubber see if i can catch another!
Great trap. Works as advertised.
Just caught first rat after 4 weeks of trying. We have had rats around here, in the Newcastle area, for years & they were always very difficult to trap or poison. We now have a dog so can no longer use poison baits so this product looked interesting. Rats are very smart animals & it was enlightening to read the instructions which give the well-known tips such as always handle everything you touch only when WEARING GLOVES, & leave the trap in the same position, don't keep moving it. The rats had chewed into a large bag of dry dog food pellets, s...o that was the obvious bait to use. I set a couple of dog pellets behind an outside downstairs cupboard which had rat droppings behind it & replaced them each day for a few days then set the trap with one dog pellet as bait. Each day I set a couple pf pellets closer & closer to the trap & they kept being eaten. I then set a couple of pellets just inside the main body of the trap & yesterday, after 4 weeks found our first victim, a large dark grey rat, a Rattus Rattus otherwise known as the Ship Rat, (with a very long tail longer than its body). The people who have not had success must realise these are very intelligent & clever animals & you have to act accordingly with whatever eradication method you use. If you are too lazy & do not wear gloves when preparing any trap, the rats will win almost all the time. Don't blame the product, This trap is a winner! Saturday, 2nd Feb. Caught second rat last night. Here is a photo with the bright green rubber ring around the neck just before I put him into the bin. The rat was a big one & not far from the trap so died very quickly. Nooski Rat Trap really works well.
Doesn't work as advertised
I was hopeful this would be an effective, humane way to dispatch rodents, as I hated finding caught but living critters with the old school traps. We have had over half-a-dozen triggers with zero catches and some bait taken but no trigger. Different positions, different bait, and the rodents are definitely not worried about the trap. At the time of writing it's rodents 10 Nooski 0. I'm really disappointed - we've had better luck hunting the critters as a team with our foxy! Will be seeking a refund under the NZ Consumer Guarantees Act.
Poor quality product
I purchased one of these and within 3 months the clear plastic housing started to crack. Never successfully caught a rat either. Its a gimmick and total waste of money. Rather stick with the tried and tested traditional rat trap that works well and is a fraction of the cost.
- Verified purchase
I purchased a small Nooski trap to deal with a rodent issue in my hen house. I was pretty excited about using such an innovative approach rather than traditional traps.
After a fortnight without success, I returned to buy a large one too, in case the vermin were too big for the small trap. One month on, and still no luck. I've tried a variety of different bait in both traps, including peanut butter, cheese, melted cheese, and layer mash (seeing as that was what lured them to the hen house in the first place). I've also tried a variety ...of different locations, including those recommended in the manual. I would test the traps and refresh the bands weekly. On occasion I'd return to find that they had been set off, and the bands lying a few centimeters away; sadly, not around a rats neck. I then purchased some traditional traps and an electric trap. Within a week I had 6 kills (3 via traditional, and 3 via electric). I also set up a water bucket trap, but this yielded the same results as the Nooskis. I contacted Nooski to advise them of the above and ask for a refund, and was told it was no fault of the traps, and to just keep trying. Why would I do that?
