I recommend with some reservation. I worked in an apartment building long ago and we had similar traps. I've caught a few mice in these, but they are not as effective. Used with other types of traps as an overall strategy, they are helpful, but I would not use them as my only trap. I put them in a bucket of water before emptying, and they are easy to clean with a hose in the yard.
after moving into my house, my wife claimed that she saw a mouse. I was sceptical but went out and bought as few of these to put around the basement. the next day we caught a mouse, within the next week we kept catching more and more until there were 9! ugh! I had no idea that there were so many, but the trap worked great. I used glud pad inside speed things up. great buy, just wished that I hadn't had so many mice!
This trap works awesome!! It took a couple of days...

This trap works awesome!! It took a couple of days for the mice to get used to it, but after that we were catching 2-3 a night! So far none have escaped from it, and none have gotten hurt by it. Definitely worth the cost.
