How to Use: Smart-Kill™ Electronic Mouse Trap (M1)

How to Use

TRAP/APP SETUP

  1. Check that the unit is turned OFF by making sure the power button is not pressed down. Bait the trap before inserting batteries. Rodents prefer foods that are high in protein and fat. Try using peanut butter, hazelnut spread, chocolate and meats such as bacon or beef jerky. Be careful not to use too much. Rodents have a very strong sense of smell, so only a small amount of bait is needed to attract them to the trap. Open the kill chamber door to access the bait cup, which can be found on the floor of the trap, furthest from the rodent entrance. Use a cotton swab, toothpick, tweezers or similar tool to place bait so that your scent is not transferred to the trap.
  2. Insert 4 brand new “AA” batteries. Place your trap anywhere indoors. The best place for a trap is on a flat surface against a wall where you have seen signs of rodent activity. The trap should be placed lengthwise with the rodent entrance nearest to the wall. Make sure your trap is within range of your Wi-Fi signal. Do this by first checking that your Wi-Fi is on and working properly. Use a device that has already connected to the Wi-Fi network such as a mobile device or tablet and check the signal strength where the trap is placed.
  3. Download the free Victor® Pest App from the Apple App Store® or Android Google Play™ store. Connect your trap by following the instructions on screen or by following along below. It is important to note that some screens, instructions and settings may differ slightly depending on the type of device you are using.
