Rated 3 out of 5Â by FlyPoster How to use this trap.
Traps have come on a long way since this style... better traps have have a pressure plate that is triggered when the rodent gets near the bait.
With this trap - based on the old school model of traps, it isn't a case of wedging a lump of food on the forks of the trap, but placing a really small dollop of peanut butter beyond the forks, towards the centre of the trap.
By doing this you are not trying to get the mouse to trigger the trap by eating the food by pulling it off the fork (mice are tiny), but by reaching over the fork, or knocking it to get to the food.
Yes there are better traps out there, but this one does work, as do old-school traps if you bait them right.
Remember: Mice will be suspicious of a new object - expect results after 3 days.
I have trapped 6 mice so far with this trap
Victor traps are up there with the best, but you can trap with this one if you have already bought a load.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by OldNick624 These traps don't catch mice!
Poor design means that the bait can be eaten by a mouse without triggering the trap. The bait goes onto a little bit of metal with two prongs that holds the bait at a perfect height for the mouse to nipple away without springing the trap.
I have successfully fed my mice half a bar of choclate using these traps.
I went to the local hardware store bought 4 little nipper traps (wooden with a full width plate for the bait) for Â£5 and caught four mice in one night. The bait from the 4 screwfix traps was eaten again without any being set off.
Overall, poor design means they just don't work. The only good bit is that they are quite well made and should last a long time, although their only real function appears to be as mouse feeders.

I purchased these to get rid of a "mouse in the house", unfortunately it ate the food placed on the trap, twice, without tripping it. (Three traps used and three food bits for the mouse.) I would not recommend these!
