The one and only VICTOR Snap Traps
Traditional mouse traps, or snap traps, work very well and kill mice instantly and humanely. A favorite for pest control professionals and homeowners alike. Victor Snap Traps have an expanded trigger for those “picky eaters,” and it allows you to use a greater range of baits. More surface area means you now have the ability to “smear” baits (such as peanut butter or chocolate) in thin layers for more positive catches. Traps placed across runways are tripped simply when the rodents walk across the pedals. Sold in a pack of 12.
To set the trap-
1. Pull the bow (the spring loaded part) back, holding it down with the thumb of one hand.
2. With your other hand, take the locking bar (the long arm with the curve >in the end that is attached to the back of the trap) and lay it in the center of the spring. Make sure that the curved or cupped part faces downward.
3. Begin to tilt the cheese pedal upward. As you do, you’ll notice that the tip the locking bar will engage inside a little box-like opening on the back of the cheese pedal.
4. Slowly release your grip on the bow, the force of which should hold the locking bar inside that little box on the pedal. The trap is now set.
5. There is an “S” and an “F” imprinted on the pedal itself. If you wish the trap to be more sensitive, position the locking bar towards the “S” side of the little box by sliding it that direction. “F” stands for firm (less sensitive).
Tips for Mouse Traps
Rodents enter a home through holes the size of a dime and run along walls, not over open spaces.
1. Place mouse traps perpendicular to the wall.
2. Place mouse traps out unset for a few days so rodents can become familiar with it.
3. Place mouse traps where rodent activity is seen (sign of chewing, droppings, runway, burrow).
4. Leave mouse traps undisturbed for at least two days before moving to a new location.
5. Check mouse traps daily and replace as needed.
6. Wear gloves when disposing of rodent.
