Victor® Electronic Mouse Trap - With FREE Batteries
The Victor® Electronic Mouse Trap uses advanced smart circuit technology to sense when a mouse enters the trap. Once inside, the mouse is held in place by the trap’s patented tunnel design and beveled columns. This eliminates any chance of bait theft and enables a 100% kill rate. When the mouse steps onto the metal plates, it completes the circuit and the trap delivers a humane, high-voltage shock. Each time the trap catches a mouse, the indicator light on top flashes green for up to seven days.
Easy to Use
Using the Victor® Electronic Mouse Trap is easy. Simply bait, place, and turn on. Do not allow bait or any other material to contact the metal plates, as this will falsely trip the system. A green light will blink once, and a short buzzing sound indicates the trap is working properly. If the batteries are low, a red light will blink to let you know they need replaced. Once a mouse has been caught, simply open the lid and dump the mouse into the trash without having to see or touch the body.

And at 100 mice per set of 4 “AA” batteries, this trap is as efficient as it is effective.
Acceptable for Use around Children and Pets
The Victor® Electronic Mouse Trap features a covered tunnel design and built-in safety switch that automatically deactivates the trap whenever the lid on top of trap is opened. And because it doesn’t use poisons or chemicals, the trap is safe to use anywhere indoors and perfect for houses with children and pets.
The Victor Electronic Mouse Trap is Easy to Use. Here’s How:
- Remove the battery cover.
- Insert 4 “AA” batteries.
- Replace the battery cover.
- Open the lid on the electronic mouse trap. Bait the trap using the bait trough provided. The bait trough is located on the back wall of the trap. Apply a small amount of peanut butter or anything high in protein like chocolate, hazelnut spread, etc. Be sure to use a Q-tip, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap. Close the lid on the electronic mouse trap.
- Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The trap should be placed lengthwise against the wall with the entrance hole nearest the wall.
- Turn on the trap – a green light will blink once showing the trap is working properly.
- A blinking green light will indicate a kill. To dispose of the mouse, simply open the lid and dump the mouse directly into the trash without having to touch the mouse at all. The trap can then be reset or discarded based on personal preference. To reset, just add more bait, place the trap, and turn it on.

Review Rateflimsy, not effective
The latch on the battery case is very flimsy. Mine hasn't broken yet but that's only because it doesn't close with the batteries installed. I am currently using a rubber band to hold it closed. So far no luck -- it looks like the mice are either eating the peanut butter through the holes or are just not getting shocked. I regret purchasing. The tried and true (and cheap!) spring traps would have worked much better for me. I do like the Victor brand and prefer their products but this particular item just isn't that great.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this recent experience and appreciate the feedback regarding this product.
When baiting this trap, we recommend using just a small amount (pea-sized) of peanut butter or similar spread in the bait trough. If mice are reluctant to enter, adding bait at the entrance may entice them in.
This trap is covered by a one year replacement warranty. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.
Review RateCatches mice (and roaches).
I had mice. There was one or more in the kitchen, one upstairs and one was eating plants on my sunporch. I used snap traps for months and caught one mouse. The mice were very crafty and would eat the peanut butter bait without setting off the traps. Then I got two electronic traps. Within four days I got four mice. Then I began getting signals that the trap had been tripped but found it was empty. Then I began catching roaches. The roaches were either dead or badly wounded. The false trip alarms are, I believe, roaches which escaped. One day I was in the kitchen and I heard a buzzing sound, like an alarm going off in the distance. Then it stopped. Then it began again and I noticed that the trap light was on. It was a roach. I have caught at least a dozen roaches in these traps. But the roach kills apparently use more battery power (maybe because it takes longer). Both traps required new batteries after only a couple of mice and a dozen roaches. I still have mouse signs but far fewer than before. Last night I heard a snap sound like something small and hard falling. This morning a found a trap with the light set and empty. The bait was gone. The glue box, which I placed nearby to catch roaches had been moved. I think I have a smart mouse who somehow can trip the trap and escape.
Six days and six nights. Nothing. We had such high hopes after reading the reviews. Nothing. Read the instructions 5 times. Nothing. We've checked batteries, cleanliness, replaced the peanut butter. Nothing.Response From Victor®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
Mice do not typically like to travel in open areas, and will often run along a wall. For best results, we recommend placing these traps lengthwise against the wall, with the entrance hole nearest the wall, where rodent activity has been detected. If after several days there has not been a catch, we suggest moving the trap to a different location.
We apologize for this experience and hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any additional questions.
Review RateNot sure what's happening!
I bought 2 of these traps and last night I used one. I spread peanut butter on the back wall of the trap, shut the cover and turned it on. I came back in a couple hours and the green light was blinking but when I opened it , no mouse! So, I reset it again and went to bed. When I got up, it wasn't blinking, but when I picked it up there was a mouse half hanging out of the opening. Not sure how that happened? The mouse must of got zapped and tried to back his way out of it. But the blinking green light never came on. I'm guessing I may of a defect? I'm going to try the other trap tonight, hopefully with better results!Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this experience. We apologize for this experience and are happy to assist.
If the trap is flashing a green light without a kill being inside, it may need cleaning of debris from the metal plates. We recommend turning the unit off and removing the batteries. Then, wipe the metal plates with a warm, damp cloth. Once the trap has air dried, it can be baited and reset. When baiting it is very important to use only a pea-sized amount of peanut butter on the back wall as too much bait may fall onto the metal plates, causing the unit to not perform optimally.

Review RateBetter than house cats.I opened up worm bin and saw mouse eating worms, mouse gets away. I put weight on worm bin and get cats in area.
Week later, same thing and cat watches. So cats are not working, house cats, what you gonna do??? So I cant get sticky traps, poisons or anything that will harm the cats.
So I find Victorpest and by coincidence a friend in other part of country has similar issues. We both independently bought this product.
We are both mouse free and literally took 24 hours. I believe I got 8 mice in total and now nothing.
These work too good.
Review RateMr. Jingles Walked The Green MileThese work just great. Mr. Jingles walked The Green Mile, within a day. They are easy to use, easy to empty and there's no mess. You don't have to put up with the smell of a dead mouse, killed with poison.
Review RateThe best way to go, only one weakness.I have used these electric mouse traps for several years now. I always reach for one at the first sign of mice. They don't stand a chance. Of the three I just received one had a broken pivot pin and renders the device basically useless. The trap door cannot fit securely and therefore the device will not energize. They are still the best way to go.
Review RateWorks so good!!!Bought three Electronic Mouse Traps about a month ago, we keep two and gave my son one for his basement. We are so pleased with the way they work, easy to set and you never have to touch the mouse to remove it from the trap. Money well spent.
Review RateWasted Money !Bought two of these traps over two months ago and have yet to catch a single mouse ! I still see mice especially at nighttime. I repeatedly clean the traps and add fresh bait...usually peanut butter, cheese, and bacon. I could have definitely put the $50.00 I spent on these things to better use !.....Save your money !!!Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more. When baiting the trap, it is important that the bait is not on the metal plate. We recommend a very small amount of peanut butter on the back wall.

Review RateGetting the job done for me!Getting the job done for me! I live in the country and we have been inundated with mice recently. I purchased six of the sure kill mouse traps and we're getting results almost daily even without using bait. If I wake up in the middle of the night I check the trap to see if there's anything in it and if there is I would empty the trap reset it and go back to bed. Growing weary of doing this on a nightly basis I purchased three of the electronic mouse traps that are on their special, buy two get one free, and I am very pleased with the results. No more getting out the rubber gloves to empty the mousetrap, just open the door, dump and flush. Now if you want to know if I like these or not, I just ordered three more.
Victor® Electronic Mouse Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where do I place the trap?
A: Place the trap along the wall where rodents primarily travel or where you have seen signs of rodent activity. For example, if you have a mouse in your house (super small droppings as compared to rat droppings, which are about the size of half a raisin).
Q: How do I bait it?/What should I use to bait it?
A: To bait the Electronic Mouse Trap, first make sure the trap is turned off. Place the bait along the back wall of the trap in the bait trough provided. We’ve carefully researched and recommend baiting with anything high in protein like peanut butter or hazelnut spread. Place a small amount of bait (the size of a pea) against the back wall of the kill chamber. Be sure to use gloves or a tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap. Please don’t place the bait or any other material directly on the metal plates as this will falsely trip the system.
Q: How do I clean the trap?
A: Through repeat use and baiting, dust and debris can settle on the metal plates inside the trap, so we recommend that you clean your trap between each use. To clean the trap:
- Turn the unit to the off position and remove the batteries
- Wipe the metal plates with a damp cloth (water or unscented dish detergent only)
- Allow the Electronic Mouse Trap to air dry completely
- Replace the batteries and turn the unit back on.
Q: Is the buzzing/clicking normal?
A: The buzzing and slight clicking sound with the Victor® Electronic Mouse Trap is normal during the start-up of the trap. When you first turn the trap on, the green light will blink momentarily and then you will hear the buzzing or a slight clicking sound indicating that you trap is working properly and starting up.
Q: Is it reusable?
A: The Victor® Electronic Mouse Trap is reusable. These traps are able to kill up to 100 mice per set of batteries.
Q: What may affect the effectiveness of an electronic trap?
A: To ensure that your trap works when it is supposed to, keep the metal plates clean so the trap won’t trigger at the wrong time.
- Don’t over-bait, as excess food could drop onto the plates and activate the trap, after which any rodent may safely enter to remove the food.
- Make sure that the plates are clear of any debris, especially urine or hair from a recent kill that may interfere with the unit’s proper function. Remember, both plates need to be clean so that the electric circuit is made complete by the rodent stepping on both.
Q:What does it mean when the light blinks green? Red?
A: When you turn on the trap, the green light will stay on for 2 seconds to confirm the trap is on. Then the light is supposed to go off. The green light will also blink to indicate a successful kill; however, in order to conserve battery, it only flashes about every 7 seconds. A blinking red light indicates that the batteries are running low and will need to be replaced.
