Victor Electronic Mouse Trap, Model# M2524
We have had mice in our shop area every fall/winter. Hate the little things but also hate all the other traps and especially the poisons. Finally we tried this and although it's seems a little pricey at first it is worth every penny!!!! I have a dead mouse every time I check it. (2-3 times a day) I open the lid, dump out the dead one and put it back. Not only are the batteries still good I only replace the peanut butter once a day. Love checking on it and seeing that green light flashing!!!!

Best product available
Very easy to set up and very easy to clean up.
The sticky pad type devices cheaper but the mice can still move around with pad stick their bodies. Snapping device could malfunctioning or could messy.

Worked GREAT !
I must have had a whole troop of mice and didn't know it! When i bought this and put it in where I first saw a mouse in my basement, we trapped a mouse a day for 15 days! VERY convenient to use!

I'm very pleased with this product for the price although for my situation the multi-kill trap might have been a better product for me i set up the trap yesterday around noon and with me sitting in the same room as the trap by 2 pm that day i had a kill, i checked the trap and the light was on so i thought no really that can't be, but with how not afraid to go anywhere that our mice are here i believed that the mice might have done it but sure enough the mouse was there, and it's been a day and a half since then and i'm up to 5 kills.

No mess trap
I bought 2 of these for in our rabbitry. 1 does not appear to work. In the morning when we check the traps, the light is always blinking on the one, like when it's caught one, but it has never caught any. The one that does work has caught many without any mess. With cold weather coming, they will be moving in. I might try a different brand so I have 2 working units.

Victor Electronic Mouse Trap
I am extremely pleased with this product.. New neighbors arrived with a portable shed. All of a sudden I had an infestation. Before this time I have lived in this home for 36 years without a problem.
Every night when I came home from work I had a new patron. ( Before this the usual sticky traps would not be strong enough and I would find them moved but empty. Or once a live mouse crying for help.)
Disposable gloves and a trash can and I was ready to catch another unwanted visitor.

Works great, bought three of them now.
First of all, this thing works great. Very humane way to eliminate mice, they are killed nearly instantly and never make it to the bate. The only problem I've had is a young mouse that was quite small, the electrical charge was too much for a mouse that small and it was a little messy. I don't think it was painful for the mouse, just messy for me.
But anyway, what I really like about this trap is that I wired up the indicator light at the end of a long wire, this way I can tuck the trap wherever and it's still easy to check it. For example, I have two traps in my attic. It's a pain in the neck to go check them regularly, so I just have the wires with the indicator lights hanging out of the attic trap door. When one blinks, I go up and clean the trap. If you're reasonably handy with a screwdriver and a soldering iron, it's an easy upgrade. A telephone extension cord works very well because it's a two-color LED so it needs three conductors. Of course this voids the warranty....

I was another skeptic, but read the reviews here. I didn't want poisons in the house as we have pets. We tried the plug in mouse gadget that is supposed to work off the wiring to keep mice away. That may have worked for a few days. We're not sure if it did or it was wishful thinking.
We have pest control coming out every month and they gave us some of those sticky traps, but it sounded barbaric, the idea of any creature struggling while glued to a piece of cardboard , especially since I had rodents as pets when I was a child.
So, I ordered one of these Victor electronic mousetraps and set it up in my son's room this afternoon. Maybe 2 hours later, I looked in there and saw the green light blinking.
I picked the trap up, turned it off, brought it out to the garbage can, opened the top, turned it over and the dead mouse was discarded without my ever having to touch it.
If this is any indication of how this trap works, it's one of the best investments I've ever made. Thank you.

ELECTRONIC MOUSE TRAP
WORKS GREAT! TOOK CARE OF THE PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY. NOTHING ELSE INCLUDING SOUND DEVICES, REGULAR MOUSE TRAPS AND GLUE TRAPS DIDN'T WORK!

we bought these electronic traps and i admit i was somewhat skeptical, but i am a big fan now ! these work great, we have used them since december with the same battery and have had "victims" almost daily. No touching, no mess, they are well worth the investment !
