The last time we had mice we put out the snap traps, which work great, don't get me wrong, mice are gross and dangerous. But this time around we put the snap traps out and the bait was eaten, but the trap never snapped. After putting out the live catch traps we found out why, they were too small to set it off.

We put out two traps and caught in one day 6 mice. The traps were great. They were so simple to set up, I squished some Reese cups pieces on the bait end and boy did those mice love that! I actually didn't even have to re-bait the trap at all. They were easy to use and it was so easy to just tip the trap over and let them out, did it one handed in fact!

Mice are gross and carry diseases and should not be tolerated in your home, office, etc, but honestly it felt so good to be able to just relocate them to the woods behind our house. I was worried that maybe I was just catching the same two mice over and over, but I've had the traps out for two days now just to be sure and haven't caught anymore, and haven't seen or heard any evidence of anymore.

I sprayed peppermint oil around the house and took other measures to make sure they wouldn't come back.

But if we ever should have another problem, I know EXACTLY what to do now! Thank you Tomcat! I never have to deal with a dead mouse again!!

I bought this cheaply priced live catch trap because I temporarily misplaced my old never fail Victor Tincat Live Catch Metal Mouse Trap which costs way more than this one. But after trying Tomcat, what a disaster & hassle. Had one mouse who must've starred in movie Mouse Hunt due to multiple failed capture but mouse took peanut butter bait each time & was laughing at me from afar I know. The last time I tried it with much frustration, unbelievably, the mouse chewed, yes chewed, a 1/2" hole in the bottom front hard plasticsection to put pressure on the closed front door section which allowed that door to pop open. Voila. Mouse escaped leaving the 2 prong door open. Don't waste your time with this. Invest in Victor Tincat that will NEVER fail

      In the past two days using this with the white traps we have caught 3 mice. I seriously works and hopefully will help us rid ourselves of our mouse problem.

        We caught several mice right away, using crunched up crackers inside and out, but even after checking it twice or more daily, noticed that the mice had chewed an escape hole in the corner of the trap! It is now unusable, so I hesitate to truly recommend this trap.

          Comments about Tomcat Live Catch Mouse Trap (33538):

          I love it but reason why I'm rating this is to see if tomcat can improve the quality of it. I purchased first one then set it up in oven. It caught first two which they only come out at nighttime. They're smart, lol. One of them chewed by the slot on the bottom base, I wondered if tomcat can improve this area. Realized them without a problem, then according to my cat, we have more. So I purchsed two more. Put both in oven again, caught one, perhaps the last mouse. But it was too late bc he made a massive hole and escaped. So I waited the next night and immediately I knew he's there again, I released him. Brown/tan with huge black eyes. Theee of them would fit in my hand, but man they're smart and can chew through what they can. I thought of the metal kind of live catch in a different brand but the ramp won't go down easily as this one. I would use it again bc I can see through it and caught two of them at a time. They got weakness for peanut butter (I used the balls treat), and I tried the wholePopeyes biscuit bc it fit, lol. Last thing, when they chew it, it appears plastic shavings all over. *tomcat, any way to make this site mobile friendly? I can't really edit this review bc the writing guidelines is blocking it.*

                  We used this for over a week trying to catch a mouse that had gotten into our house. We finally gave up and switched to peanut butter and got the mouse that night. This stuff is a waste of money.

                      I watched the video on setting it up, placed the trap in kitchen where I had seen or the price!mouse droppings, and the next morning I released the mouse into the woods! Hope I don't need it again, but I will if necessary. I recommend watching the online video.

                          My wife and indoor cats heard scurrying in the garage, turned out we had a nest in the car and one dead mouse. Nest and dead mouse removed, but we still heard scurrying located. I placed the Tomcat live catch along one wall and moved more things around, sure enough the first guy came along ... it was a pretty large lizard who still got inside the live catch. After releasing him, I reset the trap to catch the mouse who was in a large closet. First time he jumped over the trap. I put a thin box on top to stop him jumping, and got him second time. It wasn't clear if I needed to put peanut butter bait or not, I put it on a small stick and in both cases was not touched. Took about 30 minutes to catch both the lizard and mouse, I'm sure if I hadn't 'actively helped' the process, the trap would have still done it's job without me having to wait. Very happy, thank you!

                            I set the trap up before I went to sleep and checked it first thing in the morning (roughly 7 hrs it was set). I did catch a mouse which was great until I got a better look at the trap. The mouse (a deer mouse) had chewed the trap, badly.

                            Very disappointed! I will be sticking to the metal live traps from now on.

                                        I used this product on a regular mouse trap and it worked so much better then the messy peanut butter not to mention I could add a drop and not snap the trap on my finger! It seemed to be just as effective as well or I have stupid mice who were hungry :)

                                            Catches the mouse just fine. Only drawback is that you see the dead rodent.

                                                Got tired of baiting mice with peanut butter, as it seemed to attract ants. Tried this product, and it has worked to attract mice to the trap better than other products we have tried.

                                                    Purchased this to get rid of a pesky mouse in the house, but wanted something humane. Placed this with a little peanut butter in the trap and the very next morning had a small mouse in the tube. Really works!

                                                        I found out there was a mouse in my room the other day. Not wanting to kill the mouse, I purchased 4 of these traps to place around my room and in the garage (my room is in the basement, with a door to the garage). Over the course of the next couple of days, there were mouse droppings everywhere, the peanut butter from the traps gone, but no mice!!! :(

The first time I go to use it I have to crush the bottle almost completely to get anything out of it. I'm using it now for the second time and I have serious doubts that I could get a third dose out of it. Seems very expensive and also very deceitful to provide a nearly empty bottle.

Mice are smart and have an extremely good sense of smell. They seem to like to explore and play. This trap seems to exploit their curiosity and good sense of smell. I use a small dab of peanut butter in the bait well and then apply a piece of peanut to it. The trap has caught more mice than any of the others I tried. I release the mice into a 5 gallon bucket with 1/2 inch of water to keep mouse from leaping out and then transport to release away from my home. Easy.

Removed and re baited. Caught more.

When we discovered it in the am, the mouse was barely breathing and died hours later. It was a traumatic experience since our intention was to relocate not exterminate.

One of the traps found closed three times already with the peanut butter eaten but mouse is nowhere to be found. The other I witnessed a mouse go into the trap but the trap did not close, i tried to get something to trigger it while it was in there but it took to much to trigger it and it got out.

I had my doubts about no kill traps but I wanted to try it because old school traps can be so ridiculously messy. This thing worked like a charm. I will absolutely buy this product again.
