Product Description

Product Description

Tip-Trap Live Capture Mouse Trap. Made of polypropylene, resistant to stains and odors. Tip-Traps are easy to clean and can be reused or disposed of after mouse is caught. Place bait on the inside of the removable end cap. Place trap near a wall with trap door open. The smell of the bait will cascade from the unit, out the trap door and attract the mice. When mouse enters the Tip-Trap it will cause the unit to tip - closing the door and trapping the mouse inside. To release, simply position the Tip-Trap over desired area, pull back on closed trap door and let mouse slide out. Controls: Mice, voles and shrews. Try our Nutter Butter Squirrel, Rat and Mouse bait to increase your catch rate.

While mouse infestations can be overwhelming, conventional "snap traps" often prove equally overwhelming to use. This tip trap has an ingeniously simple design that provides a safe, humane, and effective way to rid your house of mice. Simply remove the end cap and place peanut butter in the bait cup. Place the trap in a problem area and wait. As the mouse moves inside the trap to fetch the bait, the trap will tip up automatically, closing the trap door. Then you can release the mouse a safe distance from your house, allowing it to go on with its life and you to go on with yours.

Folks,

I know there are some mediochre (or lower) reviews regarding this product, but please understand that there can be mitigating factors that determine how well this product works (which I learned the hard way). This product, in fact, works extremely well!! I have a large house surrounded by woods. Combine that with the intense high temps outside and that can lead to a family of mice dweeling in my house. So hence the tip-trap. Within two weeks we caught 15 mice!! It works as promised!!

But here are some things you need to know to make them work as promised:

1) The suggested bait is peanut butter. No need to change from this. However, our first instinct is to load up the bait cap in our excitement to nab the pesky mice! DON'T DO THIS. The tip trap is precisely balanced. A large dose of peanut butter adds too much weight to the trap side and could make the trap tip just from the vibrations of your walking, or even if the mouse is sniffing around it and nudges it. Only put a small glob the size of a Skittle or MM candy. It is VERY aromatic and mice have a very good sense of smell. That will be plenty of peanut butter to do the trick.

2) Mice are skittish and like to hug close to walls when they are out exploring, so keep the trap next to the wall (in their path), with just a hair of separation. You wouldn't want the trap to tip when the mouse was inside, but then get hung on the wall and the mouse escapes.

3) Keep the trap closest to the likely source of their entrance or starting point, probably where you see the mouse droppings. These traps will be most productive overnight when the house is quiet and the mice feel safe to come out.

These things do work great!

This video clip shows why this product didn't work for me.
The mice got in,tried to got the bait and finally escaped from the trap.

First time, I put small peanut butter at the end in circle area and next day I checked the trap and found that the bait was gone with door shut so I was so wondering how the mice can escape,maybe the bait size was small.

Second time, I put bigger size of peanut butter to cover all circle area and thought mice could take more time to get the bait out before door shut but the mice still was able to get out because the door shut but the bait was still in.

So I put the camera to capture what's going on when the mice got in and finally caught it and found that the mice was so quick that it just escaped before the door shut. Very surprising.

Then I switched to try "Mice Cube 4 Pk - Reusable Humane Mouse Trap" and this works great for me, couple days I got one.

I did allot of research on catch and release and it should be said that mice have a homing distance of 1 mile. So if you realease them a couple blocks away there is a 75 percent chance you will see them again.

We caught the intruder the first night we set the trap. Didn't have peanut butter, so we used some cheese. Classic. The trap works as advertised, so I can't complain, but I must recount some details of the events that transpired post-trapping. It's hard to say how long he had been in the trap, but long enough to cover the interior of the trap and himself with a potent mixture of mouse feces and urine. We let him out into a trash can so we could see what we had caught. He was weak and shaking like an extremely old man, but I don't think it's because he's an old mouse. He had probably worked diligently to escape for the better part of the night in a state of extreme emotional distress. Excessive defecation is a common reaction for mice under these conditions. I took him out to a wooded area and released him where he walked away like a victim of cerebral palsy (I'm not being insensitive here; this is really the best description of his movement). I hope he survives. All of this being said, users of this trap should make every effort to remove the mouse from the trap as soon as possible. Check the trap early in the morning. Don't set it and then leave for several days. If you can't get the mouse out right away, the mouse would probably be better off with a traditional mouse trap or some type of mouse guillotine.

This mouse trap does work (I used peanut butter). I just want to reiterate what some reviewers have said before - they will get set off with just a slight bump and BE CAREFUL WHEN OPENING! I thought my cat had set mine off as he always does, but behold, there was actually a mouse inside. It startled me so much I dropped the trap and now he's in the apartment hiding out. So please put it in a bump-free area. It will catch your mouse if you use a bait such as peanut butter. Just be careful when opening it - there's no sure way of telling if there is a critter inside. Oh yeah - don't depend on your cat to catch the mouse.

I baited this trap once with a piece of mottzerella and I caught 4 mice without re-baiting it. The best part about this is that I don't have to constantly check it to see if has caught anything. I leave it happily open in my garage, and if it is ever closed, I check it and then take the mouse out to be released. The trap is also nice to release the mice as I can face it away from me and open it with one hand while I stand safely behind.
