Victor® TIN CAT® Mouse Trap
- Product Review (submitted on March 27, 2019):
I am ALL about animals and caring about them! I have never tried to catch a small rodent before, so I did a lot of research before buying this product! NONE of these animals are pests! They are just trying to survive in a man made world with all of their habitat taken away! I have had a Vole living in my tiny backyard for about a year, and it started to get to close to the patio door, so I decided it was best to relocate it. I bought the product for $20.99 plus tax. I chose this model because it was humane and the biggest one. I didn't want a poor little animal stressed because it was trapped and couldn't turn around. There are MANY, MANY cruel traps out there, the glue ones are horrific and should be banned! I opened up the lid, put a spoonful of peanut butter on the bottom. Closed the lid and put it out on my patio stones. Within ONE hour, the little Vole was caught! I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT!!! This little Vole hardly EVER showed it's little face, always hiding, so I couldn't believe it worked! I could see it's little face right through the open hole vents, which is great. It had lots of room to move around in and lots of ventilation. Another great reason why I bought it. I drove the little guy to the woods a few miles away and opened up the lid. It slowly looked around and came out. I then sprinkled chunks of apples on the ground for it to eat later. I felt bad that I had to uproot the little guy, but at least he has a fresh start and wasn't hurt by anyone. THIS PRODUCT IS FABULOUS! It did everything I wanted it too! I then wiped out the contents with gloves and paper towels and washed the entire unit in water with bleach. Cleaned it and rinsed it REALLY well, just in case I ever need it in the future. I didn't touch any of the mechanisms, so they work well again. GREAT PRODUCT! PLEASANTLY SURPRISED! Trapping them humane means nothing gross to clean up! EVERY LIFE HAS VALUE AND THEY DESERVE TO TREATED WITH CARE!!!
