A: I had this happen. I had too much in the bait area. Only a little peanut butter or cheese is needed. If you over fill it won’t allow you to set trap.
A: I had the same problem and when I call the company they told me that I had put too much peanut butter in the little thingy ... took some out and problem solved. good luck!
A: Make sure bait is only in the bait well of the bait door. If try to bait inside the back of the trap this can interfere with the trap being set. Please contact us at 877-220-3089 if further assistance is needed.
A: No they are single use
A: Easy, effective and no mess!
A: No, I do not re-use it.
A: Not re-useable. One time kill.
A: Tomcat Kill & Contain Mouse Trap is a one time mouse trap and it should be discarded after it has caught a mouse.
A: I’ve had boxes already set occasionally too. They have worked fine - altho I did check that the capture spring worked before setting them out. Re: bait. I’ve generally used peanut butter with success, but recently had mice going for my mom’s chocolate bowl, so used chocolate. And it worked.
A: I have had two of these for a year or more. No mice caught. I have best results with the old fashioned, but messy traps.
A: I'm not sure if it is already on set mode. Mine was unset from the box. Get to the point, I used regular peanut butter and it worked really good. It's very active. I set one trap at a time for one spot but bought 2 more boxes of 2 until it stopped catching. I still set one in the same spot and check on it weekly basis. So far no sign like mice poops. Good luck!
A: I use peanut butter and it works well. After putting peanut butter in the bait box, I shut the flap and then use about six inches of package tape to seal it shut because mice can push that little flap open and escape. If you use tape to seal the bait box, be careful to not block the lever arc. I never had these issues with the original product. The black Tomcat product is even worse at catching mice. I am still disappointed that the design of the Kill and Contain Mouse Trap was changed when Tomcat obtained this product from the original manufacturer. At that time the lever arc was shortened by half. This has reduced the effectiveness of the product and now it is more difficult to see when a mouse has been caught. It appears that the trapping mechanism inside the shell has also been modified. With the original design the peanut butter was visible when you looked in the mouse hole after setting the trap. Once the original version caught a mouse, you could no longer see the bait area. Now it appears the trap has been sprung when you purchase the product. Recently a trap caught a mouse. I must have checked it very soon after the mouse was caught as there was blood dripping from the trap. The blood was the only indication a mouse had been caught. The lever did not move to the mouse caught position. Amazing that a company would obtain and change a great performing product to a sometimes it works product that is expensive. The original version eliminated any mice within a day or two, but not the Tomcat version. When I no longer have a cat I will switch to poison which I would not do it the original design were still available.

A: No it does not. Just an empty strap you bait your own. I used the TomVat bait gel and peanut butter but neither worked. Hope this helped.
A: No, it pretty much crushes the critter and you throw it away. It works great!
A: No, it does not contain poison or bait. You have to bait it with something tasty for mice.
A: No. Just put a 1/4 teaspoon into the cup. Arm it an put it along a baseboard corner and bam, dead mouse. You will want more than one. I keep spares on hand for winter.
