The outdoor unit on the airconditioner at the ranch is unfortunately just as effective. I've spent more than one summer weekend sweating my *** off because some mouse got a little too curious and fried the circuit.

I hope there aren't any 12 year olds reading this thread, cause seeing it has got my inner 12 yr old stirred up. I know of a most excellent spot to try one of these contraptions.

The best way to use 120 is to put a light bulb in series with the hot.

As the animal gets shocked(completes the circuit) the bulb acts as a resistor and lowers the current. Still kills, without tripping a breaker. The higher wattage bulb will make less current at the end

The resistance of the rat won't allow enough current to flow to trip the breaker.

I don't know why it wouldn't, the sons electric fence has taken out a couple of cottontails, one rattlesnake, and one pullet so far this year. With 110 they just need a millisecond, with the dc fence they have to get hung up for a few pulses.

Same principle was used by one of my old running buddies on coons in the trash can. Hot to the metal can, mounted off the ground on a piece of plastic pipe. Neutral to a section of metal screen under the can. Quite the spectacle to see a coon with his hair on fire. It was on a 30 amp breaker, so it took a lot before she tripped.

Haha. Many years ago my grandfather did something similar to dogs that kept peeing on his trash cans.
