Before we get started with this review I feel the need to dispel a commonly accepted myth.
Mice enter your home from the outdoors because they are cold/hungry not because you have a nasty or dirty home.
That’s right! Your home could be the cleanest home in America and receive the Better Homes and Gardens clean award every year for the last 100 years (is there such an award?) and a mouse could still be in your home. The truth of the matter is when the weather turns from warm to cold mice are already scouting a place safe and warm to live preferably Inside.
We are unfortunate in that we live in a neighborhood littered with vacant homes. The vacant homes may be a mouse’s paradise in the summer months but during the winter they don’t provide any warmth. Starting in early October my hubs starts to winterize our home and rodent/mice prevention is always first on the list. As a home ages it settles. The settling of a house means floorboards creak, and sometimes holes or entrances for rodents are created. Or maybe you live in a densely populated area and your nice warm home is the only one around for miles and miles. While you’re figuring out how the mouse got in your house use Victor® Clean-Kill™ Mouse Trap to get the current occupant an eviction notice.
Victor®, a world leader in rodent control, has added the Victor® Clean-Kill™ Mouse Trap to their line of proven rodent control products. Designed for indoor and outdoor use, the new covered mouse trap has a tunnel design that increases mouse interaction and provides a no-see, no-touch trapping experience. Key features of the Clean-Kill mouse trap include a Kill-Gate™ for perfect placement resulting in a quick, humane kill, a bait door to prevent bait theft, and a large bait trough for easy baiting. For ease-of use and convenience, easy-to-set instructions are printed directly on the trap.
“The search for a better mousetrap is over,” says Andrea Cober, Category Development Associate at Victor. “The no-see, no-touch design of this covered rodent trap makes for total stress-free trapping. And if you’re tired of your bait mysteriously disappearing, you’ll love the fool-proof bait door that banishes bait theft once and for all.”
To bait a Clean-Kill mouse trap, open the bait door on the back of the trap and place the bait (peanut butter, hazelnut spread or anything high in protein) in the bait trough. To mask human scent, use a Q-Tip, toothpick or similar tool to place the bait. Next, set the trap with just one click by holding down the setting button on top of the trap and pulling up the Kill-Gate until it clicks in place. Place the trap where signs of rodent activity are visible or along walls where mice tend to travel. For optimal rodent control, place two Clean-Kill traps back to back lengthwise along the wall with the openings facing away from each other. When a mouse is caught, hold the setting button down and pull up the Kill-Gate to discard the dead rodent.
“The Clean-Kill trap doesn’t use chemicals or poisons, so it’s a great mouse control choice if you have children or pets in your home,” notes Cober. “And thanks to its narrow profile, the Clean-Kill is also a good choice if you need a trap that can fit in those tight spaces in and around your home.”
Constructed with a highly durable plastic, the economical Clean-Kill Mouse Traps can be reused or disposed of. For more information or to purchase online, visit http://www.victorpest.com/store/mouse-control/bm162s-4, https://www.facebook.com/victorpest or https://twitter.com/VictorPest.
