I noticed we had a single mouse in one small area of our home so I picked up a pack of two of these traps, placed them as directed, and within 20 min had caught the little guy! I was amazed at how fast we caught it. We used peanut butter: put a bit on the opening then wiped it off for the scent, then put a pea sized amount at the back. (I did notice while testing the traps that one of them didn't close all the way and I had to twist the little yellow piece a bit so that it would close. Good thing, because it was the trap that caught the mouse.) This was my first experience of having a mouse in my home and using a trap, so I'm glad it went so smoothly! Finding a harmless trap was very important to me. Thank you for this product.

I set a couple of these traps out on the floor of my shed, suspecting a few mice had been living around the area, with no prevail. However, I discovered a snake in the shed and thought to place the traps on the rafters of the shed and in the first night captured a field mouse. They simply work.

Thank you for taking the time to submit your online review of the Victor® Live Mouse Trap (model M007). We are glad to hear that this trap worked so well for you.
You are correct that location is very important when placing your trap. Mice tend to run along walls as they do not like to be out in the open. Often, placing these traps along their paths will yield the best results.

The most important rule for the effective use of traps is good trap placement location based on thorough inspections to determine the high-activity areas of rodents.
Number of Traps The most common trapping mistake is using of too few traps. For only a couple of mice, a dozen traps are not too many. For severe mouse infestations, traps should be placed close together in double sets in areas of high activity.
Importance of the First Night Statistics show that more mice are trapped on the first night than on any other night.
Offer Multiple Bait Choices When many rodents are involved, different types of baits should be used. Individuals in a rodent population forage for different types of food.
Q:How many of mice are born at once? How do I know that I've trapped them all? A: It’s practically impossible to tell when you've trapped them all. You should continue to trap as long as you see mice or notice signs of activity. The most apparent sign of an infestation is fresh droppings. more»
Q:What is the most common mistake in trapping? A: The true number of rodents present is underestimated. As a result, not enough traps are used. Although you have killed a few rodents, the remainder of the population continues to multiply. more»
