I purchased two of these traps to help control mice in my garage. After baiting one of the traps with peanut butter one evening, I was pleasantly surprised to see a dead mouse hanging from the Raptor's jaws the next morning. While the trap proved to be effective, I surmised that the mouse did not die instantly because the trap was about a foot away from where I located it. The mouse must have struggled to free itself until the squeeze of the Raptor's jaws prevailed. I'm quite sure the Victor traps kill instantly due to the powerful spring snap. But the beauty of the Raptor is that you simply squeeze the trap like a clothes pin and the mouse falls from its jaws into a trash receptacle. There's no chance of touching the nasty, little fellow. My four star rating is primarily due to receiving a broken trap when shipped. There were several other large, heavy items in the shipment that likely snapped the plastic trap. Although the traps seem well made, I believe the manufacturer could improve the plastic material by adding fiber reinforcement. After calling Do My Own Pest Control about the broken trap, they immediately sent me a replacement. Great company, great products, and great pricing!
