Victor Electronic Mouse Trap
Say goodbye to unwanted mice with help from the Victor Electronic Mouse Trap. A convenient alternative to traditional snap traps, the Victor Electronic Mouse Trap kills mice within seconds using a high-voltage shock. The trap’s bait trough located along the back wall lures a mouse inside and onto the metal plates. Its advanced smart circuit technology senses the rodent and instantly delivers the shock for a quick, effective, and humane kill. The tunnel design and beveled columns hold the mouse in place, preventing escapes and ensuring a 100-percent kill rate.
The Electronic Mouse Trap kills one mouse per setting and up to 100 mice per set of four 'AA' batteries (not included). With each kill, the indicator light on top of the trap blinks green for up to seven days, and when the batteries run low and need replacing, the light will blink red. In addition to at-a-glance monitoring, the electronic mouse trap offers a hygienic, no-see, no-touch system. Simply flip the lid open and dump the mouse directly into the trash.

Simple to Bait and Use
The Victor Electronic Mouse Trap is easy-to-use. Start by inserting four 'AA' batteries into the battery compartment and replacing the cover. Then, using a Q-tip or toothpick (to avoid leaving your scent), add an enticing snack like peanut butter or chocolate in the bait trough located along the back wall of the trap. Place the mouse trap in areas of noticeable activity or lengthwise along the wall with the entrance side closest to the wall, since rodents typically like to travel along the edge of a room. Flip the switch to 'on', and it’s good to go—a green light will blink once and a short buzzing sound will be heard to indicate it is functioning properly.
Designed for indoor use only, the Victor Electronic Mouse Trap provides years of effective rodent control—perfect for attics, garages, basements, and sheds. Safe for use around children and pets when used as directed, the trap is poison and chemical free. The built-in safety switch automatically deactivates the trap whenever the lid is open, and a unique tunnel shape prevents children and pets from reaching into the trap.

The Victor Electronic Mouse Trap delivers a high-voltage shock to eliminate mice in less than 5 seconds. Killing up to 100 mice per set of batteries (4AA), this trap is a great value! Easy to use, the trap is simply baited, placed against the wall and turned on. The trap uses advanced smart circuit technology to sense when a rodent enters the units. Once the rodent is inside, the system delivers a humane, high-voltage shock to effectively kill the mouse. A green light blinks to indicate capture and a red light blinks to indicate low batteries. Rodents can then be dumped directly into the trash for no-touch, no-view mouse control. The trap features a built-in safety switch that automatically deactivates the trap whenever its door is open. Additionally, its unique tunnel design prevents kids and pets from reaching into the trap. This patented tunnel design also prevents any escapes by holding mice in place over the electrified plates. Safe for use anywhere in the home, Victor Electronic Mouse Traps can be used for years to ensure effective mouse control.
Top Customer Reviews
So I called Victor (Woodstream Corp) and talked to someone in their Customer Care department. I asked her my favorite question, "Tell me all the tips that consumers are likely to miss, or misunderstand about how this thing works." And I also asked her tons of questions I had myself. Here is what I learned:
1. First and foremost, people overbait these traps BIGTIME. (See the 2nd photo provided by a customer.) If some of that huge mass of peanut butter falls onto the metal floor-plate, the trap zaps the peanut butter and de-activates! Mice can now come in and dine on the peanut butter. She said to just put a TINY dab of peanut butter on the far wall (opposite the entrance). Use a toothpick. Or spread a very thin smear of it with a knife. Mice have a very acute sense of smell, and that's what draws them in. They don't need any more bait than that.
2. The mouse has to contact BOTH metal plates in order to get zapped. And both plates have to be clean of debris. That means after you catch a mouse, take a Q-tip or whatever, and remove any hair, any little spot of urine, whatever, from the metal plates. This is not a squeamish job at all and they don't come anymore squeamish than I am! (I do shuddering freak-outs at the sight of a mouse, dead OR alive.) There was a teensy smear of liquid (I assume urine) and two hairs that had shed off the mouse.
3. Be aware that "On" means that the LINE icon side of the switch is pressed down. The CIRCLE icon pressed down means "off." People get those confused. Turn it OFF when cleaning or baiting. Turn it ON once the trap is baited, and the top door has been snapped shut.
4. The batteries go in with the flat side of the battery against the springs. And I have had battery connections with other things "not work." I had this problem continuously with a radio. Finally, it dawned on me, give a little pull on the springs. One was coiled into itself just slightly. That fixed it. You need the springs to push against the batteries enough to hold the two tight against each end. And they need to be lined up straight, not crooked.
5. When you bait the trap, close the door FIRMLY, and turn the unit on. You will see a green light BUT!!! it only stays on for 2 seconds! That green light is SUPPOSED to go off. It only goes on for the 2 seconds so that you can confirm that the unit is on, and it's working. Otherwise, if it stayed on all the time, it would eat battery life. So when it goes off, don't think, like I did, that there's an electronic failure.
6. For safety reasons, the unit is designed so that when the door over the maze and metal plates is open, the unit will de-activate. I have no idea how the other reviewer shocked himself, but for sure, turn the unit OFF before tinkering around with baiting, cleaning plates, or messing with the batteries. In any event, when you set the trap, bait it then double check to make sure the door is snapped closed. Then, and only then, turn the unit on. Again, you will see the green light for about 2 seconds. If you open the door again (and she didn't say this but I have a feeling it's the case), i always turn the unit off and then on again after the door has been shut.
7. Once a mouse has been zapped and is inside, the light will flash on and off to let you know. BIG NOTE! The light only flashes about every 7 seconds and it's just a blink. This is probably to conserve battery but just know that a quick glance at it is not enough. There could be a dead mouse inside and you could miss the cycle of light flashing. So stare at it for 7 seconds.
I LOVE these traps! I don't have to even LQQK at the mouse, let alone have my fingers anywhere near where the mouse can brush against them. Also, as much as I detest mice because they are creepy, foul, dirty, slithery little things who dart and crawl around in mucky places, they are still live animals and I do not want to torture them! I know for a fact that three mice I caught with a snap trap had to have had pretty horrible deaths. One I heard for a solid hour, banging around, sometimes squeeling. The next morning it was dead, but it had been caught by its little nose only! Pretty gruesome! This is much more humane. It zaps them and during the 5 seconds that takes (I hope it's less), I'd imagine they are rendered unconscious pretty quickly.
Oh, before I close this review? Product Guarantee!!!
If you DO have a trap malfunction after the return period allowed by your retailer, the woman told me that the company itself has a product guarantee of ONE YEAR. Keep your receipt and if anything goes wrong with the trap (obviously excluding your prying up the metal plates or whatever), they will replace it.
So my recommendation is the full 5 stars. I think their box-side instructions are not good enough. It says nothing about bait amount, and it says nothing about keeping the shock plates free of things like hair or droppings. It does explain the green light only stays lit for a short time, but I missed that. I'm sure others could too.
Lastly? My own advice: Get a strong flashlight and plug holes with steel wool inside cabinets, closets, anywhere you find them. A pretty fine grade is best because it can be molded into small places easier and tighter than coarse grade. Use silicone caulking in addition, or put it in cracks. Bigger holes or gaps can be very easily sealed with "Good Stuff" squirt foam from the hardware store which expands. Also know thine enemy. A mouse can climb anything and it can squeeze through a hole the size of a pencil. Their whole skeletal structure is virtually collapsible so they can flatten out and squeeze through teensy spaces. While they can chew through wood and write it off to overhead, so would probably have no problems with silicone caulking, one of the things that draws them in during winter is the heat inside your house. (Bingo! Found that on google.) The caulking and expandable foam can at least prevent or minimize them from sensing heat. It probably also reduces their detecting the smell of food. Pay particular attention to holes cut for plumbing pipes. Stuff and caulk those, especially.
For trivia, a house mouse can run 8 miles an hour (equivalent to a 5'10" human running 160mph) and it can sprint across a room even faster. It can only see 24" ahead of it, but can detect movement 45 feet away. They breed horrifically fast, starting at only 3 weeks old, and they also produce good size litters. So if you see signs, get on it quickly.
You now know everything I know about mice. And about these e-traps.

Being the computer geek I am, I had a wireless security camera pointed at the spot I thought they were hanging out and it would email if it saw motion. After confirming the spot I popped in 4 AA's and had a catch the very first night.
The next night just as I was going to bed around 10pm I had a 2nd kill, I emptied the trap and re-baited and a couple hours later while I was sleeping had a 3rd kill. All I used for bait was a piece of dog food (dry kibble). This works for me and I don't have to worry about cleaning off sticky peanut butter or dealing with any possible mold.
One thing is for sure, mice check in, they don't check out. I attached 6 screen grabs of one mouses last moments from my security camera.
2 years later, in a new apartment, I finally got my chance to use it. After noticing droppings, I went digging for my unused Victor mouse trap. I baited the trap with just a tiny dab of peanut butter on the back wall (where the holes are), and within a few days, I'd caught a little bugger. Excited with the results, I went ahead and bought 2 more traps (though only baited & placed 1 of them), and have continued to catch mice every so often. I have been using both traps in my apartment for almost 2 years now, and have caught nearly 20 mice total (about 13 in 1 trap, 7 in the other). I have not changed the batteries yet - they still seem to be going strong.
The 1 thing I've questioned (and the reason I did not give 5 stars) is that on 2 occasions, I noticed a flashing green light (indicating a kill), but opened the trap to find nothing inside. Did the mouse go in for a snack, but make it out alive? Did something else set it off? The electrodes appear to be clear of any debris & there is still peanut butter on the back wall. Either way, I'll take these traps over the alternative because they are not messy or inhumane, and I've gotten results. Would definitely recommend this to anyone. Just don't put too much bait (especially peanut butter), try not to handle the traps with your bare hands (risking a human scent), and make sure they're set up properly against the wall. If you are not making any kills in a few weeks, I would reposition the traps in your home. Hope this was helpful.
