When Ralph Waldo Emerson, coined the phrase “Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door,” in the late nineteenth century, this is the trap they were talking about. Why? Because the Victor® Clean-Kill™ Mouse Trap is unlike other traps in that it offers a no-see, no-touch experience with easy, stress-free baiting and setting.
These clever little covered rodent traps look like a perfectly innocent little tunnel for unsuspecting mice. Once the mouse enters the trap to take the bait, however, it’s in the perfect position for the Kill-Gate™ to produce a quick, humane Clean-Kill™. The unique tunnel design increases mouse interaction, and since the bait trough is located at the back of the trap, bait theft is a thing of the past.

To empty the trap, simply hold the setting button down, while pulling up on the Kill Gate™ to dispose of the dead mouse. The Clean-Kill™ doesn’t use chemicals or poisons, so it’s ideal for households with children or pets. Plus, it’s highly durable plastic construction means the Clean-Kill™ can be used over and over or disposed of at your discretion.
Easy-to-use instructions for setting the Clean-Kill™ are printed directly on the covered mouse trap. Here’s how it works:
Open the bait door located on the back of the trap.
Using a Q-tip, toothpick or other tool to mask your scent, bait the trap by placing peanut butter or anything high in protein like chocolate or hazelnut spread in the bait trough.
Close the bait door.
Hold down the setting button while pulling up on the Kill-Gate™ to set the trap.
Place the trap wherever you’ve seen signs of rodent activity, or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. Two traps should be used and placed back-to-back lengthwise against the wall.
After the mouse is caught, properly dispose of the dead rodent. The trap can either be discarded or reused.

I live in an older home close to an open lot and have recently seen mouse droppings. I ordered the 12 pk of these traps on a whim, as my original purchase was for the Victor Electronic Mouse Trap, but as I didn't want to pay shipping I looked for something extra to order and chose these traps.
Within the first hour of placement 4 mice were caught! I have no idea how many mice may be in my home, but I am confident the problem will be resolved in no time!
These traps are so easy to use. Just bait the trap with some peanut butter as the video shows, and while holding the setting button down, pull the gate up. No more worries of getting your fingers snapped!
Once caught you don't have to touch the mouse, just release the gate and the mouse drops right into the trash bin!
I am so glad I ordered on these on a whim and ended up with such a great product! I will definitely be keeping these set in any home I move into in future.
Shipping was also very fast. I ordered Nov 24 with estimated delivery date of Nov 28. Victor emailed to say the order shipped Nov 25, and I received the product in Canada Nov 26!

This mouse trap is an excellent choice for those looking for a quick, clean kill. We’re happy to hear how well that it has been working for you and that it was easy to set. We hope that you continue to have success with this trap when pesky mice come indoors.
Individuals in a rodent population search for different types of food. For mice, anything high in protein like peanut butter, chocolate or hazelnut spread is a great option. Also, nesting materials like dental floss, cotton or string are also great options. Try to use whatever bait or nesting material the rodents are currently feeding on or using to build nests.
Where do I place the bait?
The Victor® Clean-Kill™ Mouse Trap is extremely easy to bait. An instruction sheet and video are available that will give detailed step-by-step instructions on how to bait the Victor® Clean-Kill™ Mouse Trap.
TheVictor® Clean-Kill™ Mouse Trap can be reused or disposed of. It is personal preference. Check the traps frequently to ensure the trap is emptied as soon as the mouse is captured and the traps will last longer. Please note that for personal hygiene and biohazard awareness, disposable gloves should always be worn when installing or recovering any traps.
