    Q
    Can I use Contrac Blox in this trap? I have dogs and do not want the poisoned mouse to be around them.
    I want something that will keep them where they are at until I can get rid of them.
    A
    We would not recommend putting Contrac Blox in the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap. Rodent bait can take up to five days to kill the mouse once they consume the bait. These traps are made to use with glue boards for faster kill. Using a glue board will also insure they cannot escape when you open the lid.

    Q
    Will the holes on the side of the multi-catch mouse trap allow mice to get back out?
    I know they can get through very small openings--what keeps them from escaping through the vent/air holes on the right and left side?
    A
    Once the mice get into the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap holding area they cannot get back out.  It is true mice can fit through small holes, but the vents on the side of the trap are much too small for the mice to escape.  We have sold these for 8 years and never heard of this being an issue.

    Q
    Will the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap work for small rats?
    I have some small rats around, but they're not big city rats. They are furry. I'm in western Washington. I need something like this that I can catch rats in while protecting my chickens from harm from bait (the chickens will play with and sometimes eat dead mice) or dangerous traps. Will this be too small to catch the odd rat or two? They're very resourceful and smart around here.
    A

    No, Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Traps will not work for small rats. We recommend that you use the Protecta Sidekick bait station with a Trapper T-Rex snap trap inside. This will protect your chickens from the traps and will prevent you from having to use any type of bait. The T-Rex snap trap is very versatile as it can be used inside of the bait station and it can be zip tied or wired to pipes or beams if you suspect the rats are running around on them.

    Q
    Should I be concerned about reports of mice getting out of the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap?
    Two reviews of this trap said they had mice that escaped when left for a couple of days. It seems like a mouse or two working together could push up the top and get out. I also saw that one manufacturer of this type of trap suggested not baiting it, because peanut butter and cheese could eventually interfere with the trap mechanism.
    A

    If a larger mouse or multiple were some how able to push open the lid of the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap, the easiest way to stop that from happening is with a couple of rubberbands around the unit. We have had a few customers put a book or something similar in weight on top of the unit if they did not have rubberbands. It's rare that this happens, but it is not something that renders the trap unusable or ineffective. As far as baiting goes, you should not be putting the bait in a spot close enough to the levers for that to interfere with anything or any moving parts. The bait should be far enough back in the unit that the rodents have to fully come inside the trap to get access to it, but not so close that they can just lean on the lever and feed and drag bait onto the lever. Overall this is a great trap for catching multiple rodents at a time without having to worry with resetting a snap trap daily. You can also use a glue board inside this trap, such as the Trapper LTD.

    Q
    Will the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap work on Chipmunks?
    A
    The Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap will most likely not work for chipmunks. Chipmunks are a bit bigger than mice and may not fit into the trap. Most folks choose to use mouse or rat snap traps for chipmunk control.

    Q
    Can you put bait in the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap?
    I am not into catch and release. Thank you
    A

    We would not recommend putting rodenticide bait in the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap. Rodent bait can take up to five days to kill the mouse once they consume the bait. These traps are made to use with glue boards for faster kill. Using a glue board will also insure they cannot escape when you open the lid.

    Q
    Can mice escape through the plastic window of the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap?
    My catch-and-release trap has the plastic viewing window how do you prevent a Mouse from chewing through the plastic?
    A

    Mice should not be able to chew or push through the clear window of the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap.  The plastic sits on top so there are no edges for them to grab onto from inside the trap.
