I bought this trap after doing some research on-line and reading the reviews. Brought it home in the afternoon, baited it with a mouse-size peanut butter sandwich and trapped my first mouse that same evening. Left the mouse in the TIN CAT overnight until I could drive him to freedom far enough away so he can't find his way back to my house. Cleaned the trap which was very easy to clean, have re-baited and waiting....

The Victor® Tin Cat® Mouse Trap (model M310) is a great choice for being able to safely and effectively catch rodents and release them. Be sure to release the rodent at least 2 miles away from your home, preferably with a natural barrier such as a highway or river to prevent them from returning.
16 mice in one night, 15 last night. Details: all mice were caught in a large chicken coop. Mice were not released but were enjoyed by the barn cats. Still catching 4 to 5 per night. Hoping for a new record.
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.
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.
