Setting the trap
Place the trap along a wall, making sure the two entry holes are closest to the wall so that mice as they travel along the skirting board (as they tend to do) will walk straight into the trap. We recommend crunchy peanut butter as the most effective bait but you can also mix in some bird seed. Nuts, Chocolate, sunflower seeds, corn on the cob, Dynamic lifter, blood & bone, apple or cake also work, or use what you know it likes. Interestingly cheese may work but is not as effective.
We suggest wearing gloves so that you donâ€™t transfer your scent onto the trap.
Check the trap through the clear viewing lid at least twice a day for a catch.
Releasing the catch
Now it’s time to go for a walk or a drive and be kind to your furry little friends by finding a safe place to release them. A bush area is ideal. We recommend at least 1km away from your house so the mice can’t find their way back. Unlatch the lid and the mice should jump straight out.
If you are not having success
Mice will eat almost anything including cardboard, so food in the trap should work perfectly. However, if you have another food source that is more attractive or easier to get to, the mice may not be attracted to the trap. Identify the food source and take that source away. Then place some of that food in the trap in same location (if possible) so when the mice next visit the food will there, but now in the trap.
Remember to check and empty the trap daily if you want to keep the mice healthy
