Bang for the buck!
We had bought it like 5-6 years ago (@Bunnings) near our old place and had caught 2 mice - very quickly. So when we spotted a mouse at our new place (we've recently relocated) - I was worried. I didn't remember exactly where we had packed our Nooski!
But 15 minutes later, I found it! Loaded it with peanut butter, a ring - left it overnight inside the kitchen cabinet. Next morning first thing I checked - nothing. Later on (like an hour later), my wife suggested I increased the bait quantity and when I went to do just that - we'd got the bugger already!
So after 5 years - it still works like a charm that it is. Can never thank Nooski enough! If you have bigger mice - go for the Nooski rat trap. Else this one's great!

Love these traps
Mice are curious and rats are cautious. Saw two mice today , set with peanut butter and chocolate with a crumb at the entrance. Both despatched in under four hours. You have to work out their run and place the trap where they feel comfortable. So easy to set and use . Love these things.

Found Nooski plastic trap housing broken/cracked in several places & unable to reglue/fix. Trap hadn’t had much use...maybe only caught 6 mice. I liked the concept, but glad had only bought the one trap as a trial. So still have “nooski” rings spare/leftover...

Trapped one of the pesky rat when nothing else could
I put the rat version out in my garden against a wall as the rat/s have eaten/ruined many of my vegetables and netting in the past month. First three nights nothing was caught so i decided to trail peanut butter down the tube and next night a dead rat just outside the trap. Will keep this trap out there at all times.
I guess the biggest redeeming factor over traditional traps is that other animals cant fit down the tube which makes it pet/wildlife friendly. Also it can be used outside!
I have used bait stations previously but it doesn't kill the rats well, also they are bad for the environment. The undercover traditional traps i made also 0 success so finally glad to find something that works.

Others seem to be having success with mice but after months of setting this for rats in my shed it hasn't caught a thing. Rats kept eating things and pooping everywhere. These aren't easy to set either. Meanwhile the bait boxes I subsequently went and bought worked instantly.

THE 'BETTER' MOUSE TRAP
Living in an old house with neighbour's pets and an aviary providing food, we always get mice trying to move in with us when the weather gets cold. So, at the first sign of mouse, went to Bunnings to buy some old-fashioned mousetraps as we do every year as they just don't last and saw the Nooski and was intrigued with the concept so thought 'what the heck' and bought it. Looked at the online guide, baited and setup and got the first kill that night. Reloaded with the same bait [a piece of biscuit] the following night and scored a hat-trick - 3 ...x kills. Two before going to bed and one during the night. The trap works flawlessly with the only 'misfire' catching my thumb whilst setting - my bad for not paying attention! Yes, the mice don't die instantly, but it can't take very long as all our kills are within a foot of the trap and one was still inside the trap. And yes, you do have to by extra rings but I feel this is a small price to pay for such an excellent and effective product. In summary, I would highly recommend giving the Nooski a go - a job well done to those clever Bros across the ditch for this better/best mouse trap!

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 ...

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? .......

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.
