I'm not sure if this topic has been covered recently or not. Please tell me what your favorite brand of mouse trap is. Thank you for your time.

We buy the victor mouse traps by the case a few times a year. Simple device but very effective in the right hands. Big yellow pan types are our favorites also.

I think the yellow pan victors are the better than the copper ones but I have never used anything other that victors

Victor pro model RAT trap with yellow pan. Second choice would be Victor quick kill mouse trap.

The Victors are the way to go. Every time I bought an off-brand I regretted it.

It's not the trap. It's not the bait. You can have the best trap, best bait, if you put it where the mouse isn't, you're not going to catch it.

It's the same with all trapping.

I use the mouse traps many times without bait or lure. I just use them as a trail set by just placing them on established travel ways butted up against a wall, beam or other barrier.

Same here Bob, most of my sets are blind sets up against a vertical structure. When I do bait I will use peanut butter or hot melt glue sunflower seeds to the pan. All deadly. For attics or crawl spaces I use the mousinator 2000. Lol

Those boards are killer if you can get a spot big enough to put them in, for bait I prefer a piping bag filled with peanut butter it makes it easy to get in all the cracks but sometimes it makes a bit of a mess.

Victor 8s the way to go with mouse traps, the cheap ones are for one time use if they stay set. Snakes are best three went in a machine shed this summer I think its still mouse free.

Since thumb catcher mentioned baits, does anyone use something other than peanut butter?

The use of small pieces of fiber fill or yarn glued onto the pan works well at times. Mice are opportunists when it comes to foraging for nesting materials. I have used that set up many times with blind trail sets and some baited sets as needed.Every now and then I will place a glue board in between snap traps if I feel I may have some mice jumping over some traps. We use our own commercial rodent bait and a originally designed coon bait that was found to attract mice/rats/

A piece of corn works.

I like the idea of gluing a little yarn or poly fil to the yellow pan. Thanks Bob.
