Reviews for Victor® Original Mouse Trap
Years ago the kill rate ...
Dec 3, 2023
Years ago the kill rate with the snap traps was about 90 per cent, now its about 10 percent. The latch mechanism is not as sensitive as it used to be, I use the same small bit of peanut butter as I used to. The mice lick the pedal clean. I need to try and orient the notch in the bar horiziontally instead of vertically I think... Not good lately
glue sunflower seeds to bait arm

I love the metal traps. don't feel bad throwing them in the forest with the mouse (no plastic). The trick is to attach two sunflower seeds with elmers glue to the bait arm. Mice can't just lick the bait away like the do with peanut butter.. Use unshelled seeds so they have to work them a bit. Raccoons love pulling out the mice from the piles of used traps!
These are the best mouse traps you can buy!

These are the best mouse traps I have ever used. So far I've had a 99% kill rate. I say 99% because I've been using these Victor traps for about 50 years and in all that time I'm sure I've had one or two that didn't work properly but I don't remember any. I usually use cheese as a bait and I press it into the bait pedal so the mouse has to really pull on it to get the cheese. There by moving the bait pedal and releasing the kill bar. And bingo! One less mouse in the house!
Peanut butter gone and no mouse

Can’t find the traps with yellow landing pad- they are the only ones that work. Had to buy all metal ones and mice keep eating the peanut butter off the trap. Out of 5 traps one has caught a mouse the others end up in trash because peanut butter eaten and no mouse trapped. Very frustrating.

Very disappointed. After evidence of a mouse inside our vehicle the first night I set the Victor Quick Set Mouse Trap to find the almond butter licked clean and no mouse. My wife insisted that the Victor Medal Pedal Mouse Trap is a classic for a reason. Nope! The second night I set 4 traps and the next morning again the bait was taken from all of them and caught nothing! Not impressed. They were purchased from Canadian Tire.
Don't work unless adjusted!

I've always used the classic metal pad traps because they work! But for many years now, every time I use them I have to adjust the trip pad arm and notch in order for the thing to go off. If I don't I feed mice! If I didn't figure out how to adjust them I would have quit using them years ago! You need to improve quality control and add a step in production to adjust the trap before they leave the factory so they actually trip!!!!!
These traps do not work.

These traps do not work. Checked the trap this morning and all of the bait was gone and did not go off. The trigger was cleaned off, so there should have been enough pressure to set the trap off. I had to hit it with a kitchen knife to get it to finally go off
