The Snap-E Mouse Trap will be the end of those pesky mice. The quick response time makes certain that once caught, the rodent stays caught. Two pre-formed holes in the trap base allow for surface mounting. Fingers never touch the rodent. The Big Snap-E MouseTrap is made of durable polystyrene and steel. They both resist stains and odors common in old-fashioned wooden traps, are easy to clean and can be reused for years of service. They are simple, safe and sanitary.
Have had these traps set for years and they still catch mice. You can adjust the trigger by setting the trap and then gently pushing down on the pad to make it more sensitive. Also take a piece of corn or some sun flower seeds and glue them into the bait cup, that way the sneaky mouse will end up pushing down on the trigger pad when he tries to steal the treat. After several years of being set, you might have to lube up the moving parts to keep the trigger nice and sensitive. other than that, a great trap.
The trap quality is very good, but the trigger is not sensitive enough to catch small field mice. These traps that I have purchased 12 of them and the mice eat the bait, and live. I got one by the tail, I called customer service and ask if the traps I purchased could be adjusted, the service person had no idea. Because of the Virus I am unable to go to stores and shop, and with my investation of field mice, I keep ordering until I find traps that work.I now throw away any trap where the mice has eaten the peanut butter bait. The old wooden traps are better.
I did not purchase at DMO but have used these. Unless they have changed the design, these did not have enough spring tension to kill the mice and they would escape. I found many mice alive and pinned by the bar almost free. Could only get them to be effective by removing the yellow plastic cover and bending the wire ends downward a bit.
