Living in the country, we get the occasional mouse in the house. We have had one in my pantry for two days now so we bought some new traps. This new design has it's good and bad points.
First of all, it's from Victor, a trusted name in mouse traps. This trap is extremely easy to set with no real worry about setting the trap off on your finger. You load the tray with bait, and pull back the lever until it clicks in place. The trap gets set off when the mouse leans in the hole to eat, not from walking on a pad like the more dangerous models. The quick snap bar kills the mouse, you empty the mouse and use it again. It's all good in theory.
After checking our two traps this evening, the bait has been eaten as far as the mouse could reach and the traps did not go off. I guess we're back to the cheap wooden ones, they seem to work the best.
