Capt electric60 I can't tell from your post whether you want design advice or just construction info? So assuming latter if trap is just for your own personal use you can have examples of tried and true devices by just searching on-line patent sitesWhere can I find info on how to zap rats with electicity.all else has failed.idk how to use the knowledge base here.I'm old.slow.
I suggest you start with brief study of rodent CVS with emphasis on timing of cardiac cycle and design-controllable factors effecting subject myocardial irritability (for example stimulation of animal as result of exertion/stress reaching _kill zone_ of trap, reaction to bait odor and like that) whole idea being pre-conditioning of animal and optimizing shock-pulse pattern to facilitate efficient inducement of VF.
HP you're funny but I say a serious question deserves a proper response!
A common problem.
JimB tnx for response! I totally agree it's a way too common problem But definitely NOT limited to ETO!A common problem.
