I read the product reviews before purchasing this trap and, after having done so, never doubted for a second that it would work. I was sure I was going to be able to solve my mouse problem. I purchased two traps, heavily baited them with peanut butter, and waited. I check the traps every few hours. Repeatedly, I find mouse droppings ALL AROUND the trap, but one has never gone inside. I thought that perhaps they were too large to enter the tunnel (although the size of the droppings suggests otherwise) so, with the hefty wad of peanut butter still inside, I left a trail of sunflower seeds up the ramp with a generous helping at the top. The sunflower seeds are gone and still, there is no mouse in my trap. The only thing I can think of is that the ramps in my traps are not descending. The mouse is merely walking to the top and finding himself unable to get through to the peanut butter. I REALLY don't want to kill these mice but am rapidly running out of options.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SKaye Difficult to open - Doesn't Hold
I purchased two of these units (price was right).
I found it difficult to actually open these units, almost like the tracking is not lined up correctly. I thought it may have just been the one however, both proved difficult to open. Caught first mole within 6 minutes of placing trap. He escaped within a half hour. Caught second mole quickly as well, he escaped within 10 minutes.
Price is right, rodents do not get hurt :) however, unless you stay on top of the trap and IMMEDIATELY relocate the rodent, they will escape.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by vkrs Not effective on field mice
I put the baited trap next to the foundation, but obviously none of voles dared to enter into the device. For the sake of experiment, I added pieces of food under the hood (before trap's latch) and close to the trap. Mice ate all baits around the trap, but did not put a step under the plastic roof.

We bought this trap and have caught 1 mouse but on at least 2 occasions mice have been in the trap and have escaped. I do not recommend this trap at all.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TomInRaleigh Works but not durable
Bought the trap and caught 10 mice over 2 weeks, one and two at a time. After the second or third use, one gnawed his way through the plastic to get out the back. Reinforced that gap with a piece of a soda can and rubber bands.
Subsequent visitors launched a wholesale attack on the plastic around the entry doors, rendering the trap useless.
So, the trap is effective and reusable as long as you check it frequently and empty it. I did not let more than 12 hours pass between checks.
Anyone reading this that thinks they only have one wayward mouse, be advised that's what I thought too...

Being a little bit of a softy, I thought this would be a more humane way to deal with mice in my off grid weekend cabin. I baited the trap and waited a few days before I had to return to the city. When I came back the following saturday, I found two mice trapped inside in a soup of their own excretions. One was clearly dead and the other barely clung to life. I dumped their bodies in the woods to fates unknown. The idea of a trap that instantaneously crushed a rodent's back seemed decidedly less cruel than the unintentional "Saw IV" scenario I inflicted on these pests.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Small Mice will Escape
I have had mice escape from this trap as well as the metal trap on numerous occasions. At night I have actually found them in the traps on several occasions, but have tried to wait until the next morning to release them far from the house. By the next morning they were gone. This has happened 5-6 times where I have witnessed the mouse completely in the trap. There have been numerous other instances where the bait has been gone and mouse droppings left behind. Perhaps smaller mice are somehow able to squeeze out or past the lever...

Yippee, caught the mouse that was eating my car wiring. I put peanut butter in the trap. He/she looked so fluffy and cute, but the poor thing was reluctant to be let go in the 10 degree weather, had to shew him away on the snow into a field. I couldn't stand the thought of using a killing trap, this one works great and is re-usable (about the size of a video tape), just rinse with the hose. The glue traps are also cruel, they would die a slow death. All creatures deserve humane treatment. Great product!
