So here it is. I don't write reviews very often but after reading some on Ortho Home Defense here I had to chime in here in defense to Ortho. To those who say mice chewed through the plastic I say, bunk!! To those who say the trap didn't trip, I say that's true. I had some that didn't trip but eventually did. I believe the size of the mouse has a lot to do with that. The ones that didn't trip I set next to another trap. Sorta baiting the mouse. Walks into one to have a meal, thinks yey! and bam get's caught in the other and that worked out nicely. Found that the mouse was quite small. Eventually the traps that didn't spring at first did with larger mice. Some traps were hard to set because the plastic tab on bottom front would barley catch but I got it to catch by using my thumb to pull it over the lip of the floor. It can be tricky but they set. Had two traps like that. So how many did I trap. Well I came across country to take care of my sick mother who used to have cats but couldn't take care of them. So a few years before she gave the cats to other people. When I came home to her old farm house it was frankly infested with mice. I had to get something that would be easy for me or her to set and toss when used and frankly something that worked. The old board traps hardly ever work and for her are impossible to set. Anyone says different has never used them. Over a course of four months we have caught and tossed 25 mice. Yes you read that right 25 mice and they have never escaped or chewed their way out, Not one! So I'm not sure what everyone else here does with their traps but I have bought 14 packs of traps and caught 25 mice and three are still set waiting for mice to arrive which they haven't! That's a 100% catch rate. In the cars I used a different tactic to repel the mice I use a product called Fresh Cab which keeps them out.

The Home Defense Max Kill & Contain is easy to use and does contain the mice. But consider it a single-use live trap. We bought a package of 2 traps. In both cases, the mice were not visibly harmed. Both mice were alive and able to move and walk, so they did not seem to be hurt in any significant way. (We didn't x-ray for any internal injuries.)

Once the mice were caught and disposed of, we were not able to reset the traps.

If you want a live trap, get one that is reusable.
Like they say...build a better mousetrap...

          We have field mice and the previous version worked amazing. This redesign the mice refuse to go up to trigger the mechanism. In the trash they've gone along with the spin versions. Sadly, it's time for the good ole snap traps.

            I set these up in my garage at the cabin and found both with captured/dead mice when I returned a month later. The only downside is they are recommended for one-time usage.

                The old design was excellent, a true 5 star review. The redesign has no rhyme nor reason to it. The bait was in plain view, mouse would go into trap and boom! Mouse caught, no problem. With the redesign, the mouse cannot see bait, has to climb up a ramp of sorts...the mice did not even bother with these newer version traps. Bring back the old design, this new design is ridiculous.

                    Used both traps this winter and got rid of two mice in the garage. The farmer behind our house plows in the early winter and the mice find shelter in he garage and tear up any towels and pillows to make bedding.

                          I love this product. First time I put one down, 20mins later caught my first critter. I had just seen it run through the kitchen that morning. Wasn't happy. I used it with the attractant and boom. I like the fact that once somethings caught all you have to do is pick up the trap and throw it away without touching anything. Have bought several more and have them in the kitchen and living room as I have new neighbors who are not exactly tidy. Will continue to use

                            I purchased 6 of these but cannot get one to lock/set. The others were a bit easier but needed some coaxing to lock. It did capture some mice which was great!

                                The trap lever will not stay in the "set" position. I've tried being gentle, being firm, placing it on the floor first...nothing works. Obviously a recurring manufacturing defect, considering other reviews reporting the same problem I had. Unfortunately, it rates "poor" in every category when it's useless.

There are mouse dropping all around the "now more effective" mouse trap but the mice will not enter. Why did you change a great product?? Is there any way to purchase the original design?

New redesign, the mice has to go all the way up a ramp, all the way back, to reach the trigger plate, alas the bait is enclosed in a seperate compartment below the trigger plate, mice cannot see bait, mice turns around and exits before reaching trigger plate! Original design, trap was triggered as soon as mice entered.

                                                The older model of these traps was fantastic and I would catch a mouse within a few hours of setting the traps. The new versions are useless and do not catch anything. I have set 6 traps around the refrigerator and nothing has been caught. I have also found mouse pellets inside of the trap so the mice are going in but not triggering the device. Again, the old model was great but this new one is terrible and I would not at all recommend purchasing it.

I set the trap following instructions, which couldn't have been easier, a little dab of peanut butter and find a spot to place it. I don't know how but after two days I checked the trap and the peanut butter was gone and no mouse. I reloaded the trap and got the mouse the next day. Threw the trap with the mouse away. Bad for mouse but a happy wife.

                                                                              I had not one but two in my attic and over the summer caught about 6 mice. Now that it's cold, I went back up and reset the traps with peanut butter. When I went up there just now, the peanut butter was all gone, so evidently they must need to get the mice fat in order to trigger the traps? Not happy!

I don't like the food because they go and die in my walls. Thought this would work great. WRONG! I see the p o o p in and out of the trap and food is gone and no mouse. Tried different foods thinking they had to be in longer, NOPE.

Just not for rodents. Whenever it's set off you don't see what in the trap due to it traps it inside. There's a trap door in the back for baiting and pulls the lever down to set the trap. easy and works great you can use any kind of baits for attractive for mice. I use pecan or peanut butter works great. Smells a lot and works great
