    The mouse traps great but I can’t say the same for the people at Victor Traps support. I ordered a Box of 20 traps but only received 18. Rather than return the entire order, reorder more traps, and then wait another 7-10 days (need to use the traps now), I called the Victor Support and Resolution line as I figured they would just send me the 2 traps that they shorted me. After an eternity on the phone and providing them all my personal information they said I would have to return the traps to Amazon for a refund and order again to get them replaced. Did I mention I have a mouse problem-Well I had already started using the traps so how was that possible?Great mouse trap, poor customer service

    This trap cost me 50 cents. One of the first things you need to try to do is to find out where the mice are coming into your house. My house is over 100 years old, so I’m still trying to find areas they can sneak in. I watched some YouTube videos to figure out the right way to use this trap and what to use for bait, a very small amount of peanut butter, just enough to fit on the end of a tooth pick to the bait peddle is recommended by VICTOR. They say if a mouse is able to take the bait without springing the trap, it is more a result of over baiting, which adversely effects the sensitivity of the trap. They recommend when setting the trap to hold the kill bar down, lift the peddle at 180゚ angle and place the rod under the little groove on the bait plate. They also recommend placing the snap-trap perpendicular to a wall or baseboard with the trigger pedal being closest to the wall. The Victor website gives detailed instructions and they offer a one year warranty from the date of purchase. It would probably cost more to mail them back than the price of the traps. You can contact them directly at 1-855- 5-VICTOR. You’ve got to be careful, I’ve smacked the kill bar against my knuckles a few times and it hurts. I practiced setting the trap without the peanut butter first until I knew what I was doing. When you read the one star reviews, VICTOR sometimes comments with this helpful information, which I’ve added to my review. This same model trap has been used for over a 115 years. My grandather used these same traps, and reused them over and over again. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. You don’t need anything expensive and fancy, this does the job. The mice die with in 30 seconds, which is much more humane than using glue traps. It took a little bit of practice to set it, you don’t want to smack your fingers with the kill bar, so be careful. Once you know what you’re doing, it’s very simple to set. Since I personally don’t want to deal with removing the dead mouse from the trap, this is cheap enough to throw in the trash with the mouse. But it is certainly reusable. I use a long grabber reacher tool to pick up the dead mouse and trap and drop it in the trash can. The metal pedal that you add the bait to stays very close to the wooden base, which makes it much easier for the mouse to set off. You don’t want the mouse to get away with the bait, that hasn’t happened with this trap. I set up a BLINK camera in my attic to try to figure out where the mice were coming from. They have been messing with mouse poop and pee in my attic for too many years, ruining many of my items. I am fed up with that, it’s time to fight. Once I saw them running around in a particular area, I set the traps. They mark their areas with mouse poop and pee. Then I set my Blink camera about 7 feet away. What I’ve been seeing on my cam is very strange. I’ve had many dead mice in the traps that are cannibalized, eaten by other mice. I wish I didn’t have to kill the mice, I see how the other mice react when they see a dead mouse, part of their family probably. Right now I have too many mice to deal with and the live traps wouldn’t work. I’d be a mice taxi service driving 3 miles away from my house daily. Within 24 hours the mice ate most of the dead mice in the traps. They’re not finding anymore food to eat in my house. They grabbed the dead mouse including the traps in their mouth and dragged them about 2 feet away under a chair, they’re really strong. Certain mice they left alone. They ate almost everything there was nothing at all was left in the trap, except some fur and a tail. If I didn’t have my blink camera, I certainly would have thought that the mice were eating the bait and the traps were not working. So if the mice have nothing to eat, they might eat the dead. With my blink camera, I feel like I’m watching a National Geographic special on mice. I know exactly what time of the day, usually nighttime when they’re running around and their behavior which is interesting. My Blink takes video clips and has night vision. I move my blinks around the house. Of course you don’t need a blink to catch mice, but it certainly makes it more helpful. And I know when I need to reset my traps without having to go up in the cold attic or down to my basement. It is a bit morbid, but you get used to it. And it helps me kill the mice, which is the most important. I think my grown sons and their wives are getting tired of mom sending them text video clips from my blink camera of strange mice behavior and dead mice. But this year being 2020 is a very strange time in all our lives. Now I can start cleaning up my attic without having to deal with more mouse poop and pee, which is disgusting. Mice contaminate food, spread diseases and viruses… The CDC (CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL) lists: HANTAVIRUS, PLAGUE, SALMONELLOSIS, LEPTOSPIROSIS…add they chew on wood and wiring in the walls.

    I got the 20 trap box.. They come just tossed in a box, just like what you see.. They are not individually wrapped or anything..One adjustment that I make with mine is, and this does bite me from time to time.. But I adjust mine so that they are more sensitive.. I found that if you have baby mice, they way that they come from the factory is too tight, or hard to set off, and that smaller, baby and young mice, eat the stuff that I put on it (peanut butter) so lightly, that they do not push hard enough on the lever for them to make it go off.. So what I do is.. That little notch on the bait piece.. I push it, or bend it, just slightly straighter up, a little closer to 90 degrees.. Doing this makes it more sensitive.. But it is like a double edge sword.. Yes, you can make it VERY sensitive, to the point that just trying to set it down can make it go off.. and in that aspect, yes, you can get snapped on your fingers because of this too, if you hold it in the wrong spot.. But on the positive note, it is almost impossible for even a light eating baby mouse to not set it off.. Which means there is more like a 95% chance of getting the baby or young mice, vs more like 5% with the way that it comes from the factory. Adult mice are about 60 / 40 with the way that it comes from the factory.Either way, I have been using this brand for years. I live in the city and when you get those neighbors that you prefer not to mention move in to those rentals.. Then their little companions love to come over to my house to visit.. and they are not welcome.. I have had it happen many times.

    Ever heard the expression “You can’t build a better a mouetrap” or something like that? It seems true to me – many local stores only carry the newfangled traps that look like these except for a yellow plastic square in the bait area. Maybe my rural mice are geniuses but they seem able to outsmart that kind.Unless you’re hard-hearted I’d avoid glue traps too, as they don’t kill instantly and leave it for you to do. With these classic traps, I only once had a mouse get caught and not die – I just gave the trap to my cat. Can’t give a glue trap to a cat.Anyway – apparently I have a lot to say about mouse traps, but in short, stick with these.

    I remember when Victor traps were well made and substantial, it wasn’t too many years ago. Now they are all just extra cheap and kinda crappy….. made in China or something. Wish they would improve the quality.They work but I’ve started buying different brands and find they are far superior to what used to be the old standard “Victor”

    For some reason, these traps are getting harder to find in the big box stores. I see all manner of similar traps available, but most of them might as well be sold as tiny cheese trays. I don’t need a trap that is easy to set, I need a trap that is easy to set off! These good old standbys are as good as they ever were. And the price is right too! Get you some!

    Caught the mouse I was after in few hours! Easy to set with raw bacon bait mice love it caught him quick!
