The Victor Electronic Mouse Trap uses innovative technology to deliver a high-voltage shock, eliminating mice in seconds. This powerful device is capable of killing up to 100 mice per set of batteries (4 AA), making it a great value. It's also easy to use. To use, simply place a high protein bait in the provided bait cup, place in a location with high rodent activity and power on. Advanced smart circuit technology senses when a mouse enters the tunnel, triggering the system to deliver a humane, high-voltage shock. After making a catch, a green LED light blinks to indicate a kill. The kill chamber is conveniently removable so you can easily dispose of the dead rodent without having to see or touch it. This removable chamber also makes baiting easy. The new and improved design of the electronic trap provides better plate access so you can easily clean it in between uses. Plus, the tunnel design and built-in safety switch, which deactivates the trap when opened, helps to protect children and pets. The unique tunnel design and beveled columns serve an added purpose of holding mice in place over the electrified plates to prevent escapes. These traps require no poison or chemicals and can be used anywhere inside your home or business to ensure years of effective mouse control.

The trap doesn't work. Looks well made but mice as simply to smart to want to run in there. Cool concept, but even with food at the other end they don't want to go in there. Im going to keep it but I was hoping to alleviate some of my problem!!

We're sorry to hear about this! Try leaving the trap off for a few days with a bit of bait inside. Once the bait is gone you can rebait the trap and turn it on. You should see success shortly after that! Please give us a call at 855-584-2867 with any questions.

Works fine. Remember to reset (turn off and back on) after every catch so the green light indicator resets. A very small amount of peanut butter is all that’s needed. Supplement the trap with disposable mice traps for more kills. Gross to have to handle dead mice but you’ll get used to it. If not, hire a pest/rodent control company they do the same thing.

Only had them for a few days.
I was initially taken aback by the pricing of these traps but figured it was worth a try.
There should be a better "Quick Start Guide" but it was easy enough to figure out.
Very important to only use a very small amount of peanut butter to keep it from coming through vent holes.
I only setup one trap to start with for testing because nothing has worked on the mice in my office.
d-Con poison failed, old fashioned snap traps failed. The mice in my office are too smart for any of these other things. After the first night I had one in the trap. Emptied, reset in a new spot, and the second night I caught another. Now I have all three of them setup for the weekend and I'm hoping to fill them all. These little monsters have stolen enough mixed nuts and fruit from me. It's time they pay the price!

Bit right through!
Paid $20 for this to kill a mouse. Didn't realize that the mouse could just bite right through and take the bait without going into the trap??? So yeah, waisted $20. I would not recommend this for adult mice.

Bought this about 24 hours ago and so far have caught 3 mice. I opted to buy the Tomcat Attractant gel as well (because I ran out of peanut butter) and maybe that has added to it's effectiveness. Based on reviews of this trap using peanut butter, that gel was easy to apply once you shake the gel to the top and apply it with the trap angled. After the first kill I replaced the gel, but then when I got the 2nd I got lazy and just cleared the trap then turned it back on. No problem and I'm going to see if it can catch another.
The no touch/no see thing isn't really true- I mean I didn't have to touch it but I did take the trap outside, used gloves, opened it to verify kill, and then just emptied it in the garbage. So far no false positives so that's been good. Haven't had to scrape the mouse off or anything.
So far I'm loving this thing as it's so much better than having to kill one on a glue trap or something (which my parents used to use when I was young in the house I was growing up in) as you don't have to deliver the final blow or risk escape.
This thing is great and at the same price that Amazon had it- really happy I was able to buy it in store to take care of things.

No assembly necessary, just install batteries. I put it under the kitchen sink and they walk in after crawling up the drain pipe.
The green light blinks when there's a catch. That mouse is dead! Easy, clean, quick, and I like the Victor brand.

This is a nicely engineered product from a company with decades of experience killing mice. Setup was simple thanks to clear instructions. I installed 4 AA batteries and baited the trap with peanut butter and switched it on. Peanut butter has always worked well in my traps.
Living in the country we are used to mice. In warm moonlit summer nights, it is easy to see mice running across the desert foraging for seeds. They winter in the crawl space under our house and come up at night to steal cat food and gnaw through food cartons. Conventional snap traps work well and our three cats also reduce the mouse population.
This trap is safe to use without the risk of finger damage inflicted by snap traps. It opens easily to shake out the dead mouse. To test its effectiveness at luring mice to their doom I removed all but one of my snap traps for a month so that I could test the electronic trap's performance. I moved the two traps to different locations each night. The snap trap caught three mice and was sprung once without catching the mouse. The electronic trap caught nothing. This is not a long enough trial to accurately measure the effectiveness of the trap, so its failure could have been caused by bad luck. I will continue to use it for a year to get a true measure of its worth, but it does not seem to offer any advantage over much less expensive conventional traps.

IMPRESSIVE - Have been using this device for about 3 days now and was very surprised and pleased that it actually worked. I have a continuing mouse problem in my covered outdoor patio. I have tried 2 different kinds of traditional mouse traps with poor success. This device caught one in 3 days. A big improvement. Easy to use and easy to bait. A light comes on when you caught one. You can even dispose of the dead mouse without touching it. I used peanut butter as bait. I just placed it along a wall where there was existing mouse droppings.

Not sure this is for everyone. This trap seems great in idea. Put four AA batteries (not included, which is ridiculous considering the price) into the battery chamber, attach it to the kill chamber, bait it, turn it on then set it along a wall or mouse run. Theoretically this is a good plan. In practice it hasn't worked for me. Baiting it is surprisingly difficult to do without getting peanut butter (recommended bait) all over it. The area to bait is so small that i couldn't bait it without getting some on the sensor plat (metal section in the photo). I don't know if that somehow impacted it's ability to sense a mouse, but I haven't had a kill yet after three weeks using it. Perhaps the mice in my city are just smarter than this trap, but I'm not having luck. I know a lot of people say this works, so take my review with some skepticism but results may vary. I'm still finding that, at least in the city, poison is the best way to rid mice and rats.

We apologize for this experience. If there is bait or any other material on the metal plates, it will falsely trip the system. We recommend cleaning the trap. To do so, turn the unit off and remove the batteries. Wipe the metal plates with a damp cloth (water or unscented dish detergent only). After allowing the trap to air dry completely, the batteries can be replaced and the unit can be turned back on.

The Victor brand of mouse traps has been around a long time, so I decided to try their electric mouse trap. They claim it will catch 100 mice per set of 4 AA batteries, I haven't caught that many, but it does work! It's nice to be able to check at a glance if there is a mouse caught with the blinking green light. I use this for my motorhome, as mice have done hundreds of dollars of damage in the past eating wire etc..
My only issue is the instructions & lack of clear pictures & explanations. I will explain how to use the trap below & hopefully save other folks a lot of time & aggravation trying to get the trap open & to work! This will also help folks that have trouble reading the small print on the box!
1. Hold the unit with one hand holding each side, the switch should be at the upper left.
2. Pull & slide the left side toward you 3/8" keeping the 2 halves lined up, it will unlock, then the 2 halves can be separated.
3. The right side is the chamber for the mouse, the clasp for the door is on the middle of the top, get your thumbnail under the tab & lift up.
4. The left side is for the AA batteries. Turn the unit upside down & there is a ribbed tab at the bottom. Take your thumb and push the tab down while pulling toward you to release the door, this will open the end to install the AA's.
5. Put one AA with the negative toward you on the bottom left and a + towards you on the right.
6. Above the bottom row of batteries put a + towards you on the left and a negative towards you on the right. There actually are little stickers on the inside of the battery compartment on the sides.
7. To latch the door back on, hook the bottom of the door onto the case and pivot the door up to close, it should snap on.
8. On the already open mouse side (kill chamber) place a dab of peanut butter at the very top next to the round vent holes on the bottom floor of the trap (there is a little 3/8" oval the says BAIT)
9. Close the kill chamber, it will snap closed.
10. Line up the 2 sides, with the 2 tabs on the left side into the 2 holes on the right side and slide back together pushing the left side away from you. It will click together.
11. Place near a wall making sure the mouse opening is next to the wall.
12. Turn on the switch on the top, the green light will go on for about a second & the unit will buzz (very faintly) to let you know it's armed & ready to go.
When a mouse is caught the green light will blink for up to a week.
A red light means the batteries are low.
To dispose of mouse, turn off the switch, I take the 2 halves apart (that way the top door opens all the way) and then dump the mouse out.
Hope this helps!
Works great! Best way of eliminating mice. No noise, mess or smells to deal with. Just a quick electrocution, open the trap, drops right out into trash bag and dispose of outside for trash pickup day.

Finally Got 'Em
Our unwelcome guest outsmarted us at every turn, including bait stations and snap traps. Finally decided to up the ante because we were tired to cleaning up mouse poop around the house. Got him the first night we put it out. Easy to use.
Oct 10, 2021
It took a couple of days but this trap got the mouse! Best bet is to determine the mouses path. My wife saw it go down a hole for the heating pipe. Put the trap door next to the hole and got it that night. Set it again to get any others.

Bought three and assembled, baited, and placed as directed. The mice pooped on top of them and inside them and ate the bait but the trap didn't actually kill any mice. Huge waste of money.

Does the job....
The inside plastic place for the food is very tiny, if food makes contact with the metal bottom it disarms. You also have to pull the mouse out by the tail so have glove ready.

No Mice !
Purchased two of these electronic traps, I’ve always used live traps in the past and had great luck with them. Someone pointed out that when I take the mice to a new location, in reality, I am making them someone else’s problem. So after consideration and reviews these seemed like the most humane as you can get in a kill trap.
I use peanut butter as bait as I always have, turn on the units, they flash green once and buzz as it states in user info. I’ve had no luck for a month !
Now I notice the pb is gone and nothing caught.
Units still buzz when turned off and on again.
Guess I’m going back to to the $7 live traps

Everyone raved about this trap and we didn't catch anything. It's incredibly small so if you have anything large running around, I'd skip this one.

The only trap that worked after buying and trying all the other cheaper traps. For small mice in your home look no further. All the other cheaper traps were not triggered when the mouse stepped on them. This one is electronic and its guaranteed to trigger and kill and the best part is you don't see it die. Well worth the money.

Did not work.
I bought the Victor device 2 days ago. Set it up with peanut butter but no luck. Ended up purchasing the "catchmaster metal multi-catch mouse trap" and deploying it yesterday. Put peanut butter in it before deploying. Interestingly both devices were side by side, but the mouse picked the catchmaster instead. It worked last night right away. Perhaps the metal reflects better in the night time?
