How to Use: Electronic Mouse Trap (M250S)

How to Use

Have you recently purchased a Victor® Electronic Mouse Trap? In our helpful How-to section, we’ll walk you through basic trap setup, baiting, and disposal so you can have your new trap up and running in no time.

TRAP SETUP

  1. Check that the unit is turned OFF by making sure the power button is not pushed forward. 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.
  3. Power the trap ON by pushing the power button forward. A green light will appear once and the unit will buzz to let you know the trap is armed and ready for use. A continuous indicator light is not used so that battery life can be preserved.

BAITING

Be sure that the trap is powered OFF and batteries are removed before baiting the trap. 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.
