How to Use the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap (Video)
Same product as the popular Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap, for less!
Catchmaster Multi-Catch Mouse traps (MODEL 612MC) have a very low profile (only 1.75 inches tall) allowing them to be placed in tight areas or under pallets. A clear lid on top of the trap allows easy viewing of your catch. Catchmaster Multi-Catch Mouse traps are perfect for the home or for larger areas such as farms, chicken houses, warehouses, etc. These traps are also excellent for sensitive areas where rodenticides or snap traps are undesirable or prohibited.
Mice like to travel along walls and not across large open areas. Place the Catchmaster Multi-Catch Mouse trap along a baseboard or in a corner. When the area to be controlled is large, the infestation is severe, or to increase the effectiveness of the traps, place several traps along the walls about 10-15 feet apart.
1. Place the Catchmaster Multi-Catch Mouse trap lengthwise against wall or object with entrance holes nearest to that surface.
2. Use peanut butter or other typical mouse bait in the inside chamber to attract mice. (One customer put a dab at the top of the ramps and had great success!)
One very important thing to remember: it may take the mouse 1-2 weeks to become familiar enough with the trap, before it attempts to enter. At first the mouse may just go around the traps or run on top. However, once the mouse knows the trap isn't going anywhere, it will be confident enough to go through the trap. Mice are very cautious about new things in their environment.

Worked in just two days!
By Jeremiah on 03/15/2009
I set up the Catchmaster 612 Mutli-Catch Mouse Trap (with a spoonful of peanut butter) along the wall where I had seen mice running and in just two days I had both mice in the trap. I was clearly able to see the mice through the window on top of the trap. No blood and no guts! I freed the little devils back into the wild.

Works extremely well even outdoors
By Csc in Chicago, IL on 03/26/2010
Got one of these and yes they do work very well. I used mine outside to keep the mice at bay on my patios near my outdoor kitchen during the winter months. In a single weekend I caught 8 mice. The only problem is not with the design of the trap as it does exactly as it advertises, they can't get out once there in. But mice are extremely cannibalistic especially under stressed survival situations. So it was so gross inside the trap that I ended up throwing it way because there was no way I was going to clean that out! Definitely will buy a few more to replace it with.

Outwitted by mice
By Sabine in Santa Fe, New Mexico on 07/22/2009
Well, yes, I caught a mother and baby mouse in one night with cheese, but when I waited another night for the rest of the family to join them they had figured a way out. So this patent does not seem to be all that clever as compared with mice intelligence!
Thank you for your feedback! Mice are very cautious about new things in their environment. It is suggested when using a trap for mice, that it is not disturbed for 2 weeks. After a while, they will begin to investigate so it is best to leave it for at least 2 weeks before moving it to another area or before making any conclusions on the product's effectiveness. Also, please check out the product video on this page for tips and instructions on effective use.

Only worked for a month
By Jill in Nova Scotia on 02/01/2013
The Catchmaster 612 worked really well - for a month. I caught 30 mice, sometimes 4 in one night, and I was happy to release them out in the woods. Then the mice got smart. They have now somehow figured out how to get in, get the bait (dog kibble and sunflower seeds) and get out. The trap still looks in perfect condition, like the day I bought it but it doesn't do its job anymore. Now it is just a mouse feeding station. And it cost nearly $20 with the tax.

Mice Running Amok
By Sherri in Winlock, Wa on 04/13/2010
I ordered your Catchmaster 612. The reason I needed it was I rescued 3 baby mice that the parents deserted when I tore down the shed and when I was feeding them one jumped (apparently in their flea stage!!), and darted off under the entertainment center. There he remained and lived for about 2 weeks. My dog alerted me that he had moved under the kitchen queen at which point I grabbed up the catcher, down on my belly on the floor and there he was. Placing the catcher in a strategic position I encouraged him to move forward and BAM he went right into the catcher. I was able to save him and return him to his siblings out in the barn, their new home!!! Thank you.
Worked well for years, But
By Expert in Manchester MA on 12/08/2017
I have recommended the style of trap for years, because it works beautifully. But this year, two or three of my mice figured it out! They came in, ate the peanut butter, and left! I still recommend this, because it works so well, for so long. I just now need to change it up a bit!
By Sue in Carlisle, OH on 11/24/2017
The best way to catch mice, versus traps. I don't release my mice so they can come back in.

Great way to catch mice
By Jeffrey in nh on 11/04/2017
This works well with a bit of peanut butter. Catches mice and keeps them for a bit. I love the "no kill" aspect of this and the cleanup is very good. Easy to release the mice after catching. I previously had plastic traps but the mice chewed through them. this metal is a good alternative.
By Richard in Brockport, PA on 09/29/2017
Works great, caught four mice in two days with one trap using peanut butter on a paper towel cut in four slices, I bought twelve traps, I shaded them to create a dark safe place, I would recommend them to a friend.
By John in Melita, Manitoba Canada on 08/28/2017
I was a little skeptical when I seen the traps, but put them in the shop and have caught three mice in two of the four traps set this week. These traps in my view work very well, I also put mouse poison in the boxes so I won't have to deal with live mice.
Worked well for the price.
By Kaht in Ada, OK on 06/29/2017
I have a problem in my aviary where mice like to pilfer the doves' sunflower seeds from their feed bowl. Moved the bowl for the night, put one of these loaded with sunflower seeds in the same spot. Next morning, I have three little thieving rodents in it frantically scurrying around. They are a bit flimsy in structure, but I only paid $7 for it at Walmart, so hopefully it catches a lot more mice before it wears out.

Better than a cat !
By Bruce in Fairfax, VA on 06/01/2017
This thing did the job in only two days. Great design in that the top of the trap is clear allowing you to easily see if there are "visitors." Two mice in two days and we're now rodent free. Like everything else we've bought from these folks this one is reasonably priced, easy to use, and it WORKS !

Love this item!!
By Janel in Creston, Iowa on 05/02/2017
This live trap is amazing!! We have caught 11 mice so far! I run an animal rescue and do not want poison out as I have several dogs that can possibly get in it, not to mention I don't need the smell of the mice in my walls after they die. This is a great way to catch the mice, the product is inexpensive and very effective!! I highly recommend anyone with the mouse problem to get this trap!!

QWill 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.

QWill the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap work on Chipmunks?
AThe 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.
QCan 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.
AWe 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.

QWill 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?
AOnce 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.

QCan 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.
