Suggested Deer Mouse Baits

Victor® has all the information you need to control deer mice. Discover the best mouse bait to use to keep the rodent from stealing the bait without setting off the trap. Stop feeding your mice; use our food suggestions for mouse bait that works. Set a better mouse trap with Victor's® rodent control options and our mouse bait suggestions.

Tying the bait to the trigger will prevent the rodent from licking or nibbling the bait and stealing without setting of the trap.

For baits that cannot be tied (e.g. peanut butter), it’s best to use small amounts.

Victor® recommends these baits to trap mice:

Peanut butter

Sunflower Seeds

Oatmeal

Nesting Materials such as dental floss, yarn or twine

Gum Drops

Chocolate

Crackers
