Minus one mouse
Swifty broke the neck of my mouse, this one fell prey to a peice of chocolate. My girlfriend doesn't know I killed it so if I win 100 pounds for the review let just say it a random prize.

Good way to feed mice
These traps are a disappointment. They are a variation on an older design but do not work as well. The first time I baited and set them I found that the bait had been taken from all four traps and not one trap had been triggered. Examination revealed the reason why; I placed the bait (chocolate) on the fork and set the trap but the thickness of the bait was sufficient to prevent the fork lever being depressed sufficiently to trigger the trap. I have modified all four traps by bending the fork lever a little more to increase the clearance between it and the metal base when the trap is set and have been rewarded by catching three mice within 24 hours.

Bought the traps on Thursday. One dead mouse on Friday, another dead mouse on Saturday. Eagerly awaiting Sunday. Great value product with four traps in a pack. What's not to like - unless you're a mouse....

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.
