I used these when having my house remodeled and a lot of field mice were able to get in. I brought 4 of these traps. I must say they worked really, really fast. I baited the trap with a small amount of peanut butter and every day there was a catch in them. I think they work best if after each catch you clean the inside of the trap with a lightly damp paper towel (plain water), because sometime after a kill the mice may have urinated and some fur may be stuck in there as well. I love these so much I have had my job order them for our office. Keep up the good work Victor.

Trap is USELESS after 7 jRats By maxi
First, we caught 7 rats, then NO MORE, even so though the light was still active. Because of that I wanted to replace batteries, ebut the elctrcial spiral inside the batterie compartment broke off. Now the trap is USELESS to us. Your phone number is also not in service. Your advertisement of 50 Rats is not truthful.

Cheese works great! By Maude

I tried for months to catch rats & mice with this device using peanut butter (the only bait recommended in your directions). All I got were a few cockroaches. Then I decided to bait with cheese, a small bit stuffed into the bait nook. In the last 6 days I have caught FOUR LARGE RATS!!! So big I don't see how they stuffed themselves into the trap! The cheese really works. I put fresh cheese every night as the old bait gets dry & hard. Maybe you should list cheese as an alternate bait in your diections.

Don't bother By B

Does not work at all. I've moved it to different areas and have tried different bait. I have not gotten anything. Sadly, total waste of money.

Response From Victor®
Jules : Consumer Relations Representative

Hi there! We are sorry to hear about this! Sometimes rodents will be cautious about entering a new trap. To help them overcome their caution, we recommend baiting a trap and placing it powered OFF at first, allowing the rodent to become accustomed to it. Don’t worry - you won’t be feeding these pests for long!  After a night or two, add fresh bait and turn the trap on, ensuring the next time the rodent enters the trap will be the last. If the bait is being stolen, please reach out to us for further assistance at

need an outdoor design By out of money

why not set your engineers to work to design a unit that can be placed in locations where they are really needed; porches, barns, garages. etc. i don't have rodents in my house; the battle is outside. i had 6 of the old style w/ the dome top and they worked well for a while; but soon they just quit. new batts, surgical inside cleaning; nothing would bring them back. $300 in the trash. your removable top looks like a good idea, but i see a real problem with the electrical contacts being robust enough to withstand the constant on and off of the lid. that's the weak point to me. make something sturdy, reliable, and not cheap (chinese); and people will buy it. you can't just stand on your rep from the 1800's.

Will not work with mice and rats present! By ColMountain

The rat trap will not work if you have mice and rats. The plate closest to the bait allows mice to eat the bait without being zapped , then the rats do not go in!

Response From Victor®
Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

We appreciate your feedback and the time taken to provide it. While this trap is designed for rats it can shock mice as long as they touch two plates at the same time. Traps specifically designed for mice may be needed. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for assistance, we're happy to help!

Q.Will this trap kill mice? I bought it for mice as it said on Amazon. I bought 2.

While this product may catch mice occasionally, mice may be too small for this product to be its most effective. We recommend using the Electronic Mouse Trap for eliminating mice.

Q.I switched to on position and the green light flashed on for a second. I didn’t hear a buzz. Is it on?
We apologize for any confusion!  If the trap is flashing green when turned on, the trap is armed and ready. While the trap will often buzz as well, the buzz is fairly quiet and may be hard to hear if there is any background noise. 
Q.can wifi be reprogram will they work without wifi

This product does not require WiFi to operate.
