What a great trap. Simple and easy to set up and use. The trap was set literally 5 minutes after it arrived. I caught 1 baby rat the first night (pic) and 2 field mice the second night.
This trap is great. I recommend putting in your five gallon bucket with a large glass planter jar. Then fill the bucket with lots of seeds. DO NO ADD WATER YET! Wait a day to check and if you have mice then fill the bucket up with water this will drown them. Feed the wet meals to other wild life. The glass planter jar will keep them from eating the plastic bucket. Smear peanut butter on the inside lid roof and stick with seeds.15 mice caught near my chickens!
I've had a problem with mice in my garage for awhile now and didn't want to go with a trap that killed them. I bought this mousetrap, attached it to my bucket and put some feed inside of it. After a single day, I caught half a dozen mice! Just make sure that you have some bait on the underside of the yellow bucket lid. That way, the mice will walk towards the plank and fall into the bucket. I used peanut butter and it worked marvelously.There is no mousetrap on the market that's as simple and effective as this one. I'm sure after a few more days, I won't be having a mouse problem in my garage anymore.
Very happy with this product!! Have caught several mice with them, up to 10 in one bucket in just one night!!!
this thing works amazing! I cannot stress how badly you need one of these traps. first night we put this by the chicken coop and caught 6-8 mice. the dogs and the chickens enjoyed them in the morning. fill the bucket with a little bit of water and the mice will drown so you dont need to deal with getting rid of them yourself. sometimes you will find a mouse in the bucket during the day too!
I tried all kinds of traps and poison, and this has been the best option I've tried.
I have had this set up in my house and my workshop and have been able to remove over a hundred mice from my domain. It works amazing as a live or a kill trap. I have neighbors that have been feeding birds and squirrels and such...sadly their food attracts mice as well.
The huge limiting factor with most mouse traps is that until the trap is reset, there is no opportunity to catch more mice once a mouse is trapped. I put this trap to work last night after it arrived and today I had three mice trapped when I returned home. The cost of the trap is rather high for what is being provided, but a good trap is something that is generally put to use every Fall when mice seek a warm home and this should be the only one I will need to purchase.
Great product!! Works like promised.
Buy from this small family company and skip the CCP crap!
Love that it's easy to clean.
Just a little peanut butter draws them in. It's perfectly weighted so once they're on the flip part of the lid it's all over and down they go.
I appreciate that you can use it as your preference of either a kill or no-kill trap.
Get one if you have a mouse or rat problem.
Even though we knew we had a mouse problem, they stayed away the first night. I guess the food source I hadn't identified kept them busy. My husband added tiny spots of peanut butter going up the ramp. Caught one that night. When I eliminated the food source (dried beans), there was no more activity. A week later they were back and started eating the labels off jars in my lazy susan. Caught 2 on consecutive nights. Very happy with this mousetrap and glad I don't have to worry about poison.
After getting one to try it, we were sold and ordered two more. As long as you keep the peanut butter fresh it will keep attracting and trapping rodents. Get this one
Great trap, works as described. Only change I can recommend is the nose of the trap would hold peanut butter and sunflower seeds better if it had an actual cubby or small tray. One we get hot enough, it will slide off the plastic into the bucket... Still catching mice though, even with that...
Now the cold weather has set in, I'm finding a mouse or two a day in this bucket. I've tried those other traps that look like little tunnels, but they were just impossible to clean, & grossed me out. With this, I just drive to the park & tip the little fellas out, go home, & hose out the bucket. I bait it with peanut butter ( I also dab a little bit on the ramp) & put food inside for them. I might put a water dish in, too, so they don't die of dehydration if I forget to check it. I don't mind mice making a living somewhere-- I just don't want it to be in my basement.
We purchased this and just received the product yesterday. We look forward to catching mice and rats who eat our fruit from our trees and use our backyard for a freeway between houses. I will leave a review when we start to catch pesky mice and rats. Stay tuned.
We had a horrific mice problem in our chicken house and were reluctant to use anything that could harm our animals. This product was a perfect solution. We caught 10 mice the first night!!!

This is a great trap, we already happily caught our intruder and set them free. Everything worked well as promised and the build quality is very nice.
This is the most successful mouse trap I have ever used. I first saw it on YouTube on the Mousetrap Monday channel. I ordered it right away. It has been so successful I recommended it to everyone I know who keeps poultry to eliminate mice near their chicken coops.
This trap is working great so far. Easy set up that only requires a bucket. I recommend this trap to anyone who might think they have a multiple mice problem in their house.
