Place the mouse trap against the skirting

Warm a small block of chocolate on the radiator, stick the chocolate in the centre of the mouse trap.

Cover the mouse trap with a book or placemat to exclude the light.

Check the mouse trap in the morning and at least twice a day.

Don't leave mice in too long, remove them and re-bait the trap.

If no mice enter the mouse trap on the first night leave the trap baited and open until the mice find the bait, then re-bait and follow the setting instructions above again.

There are only three reasons why you don't catch mice in this trap.

1/ THERE ARE NO MICE ! could be a larger fury animal

2/ THERE ARE MORE TEMPTING PLACES TO EAT ! clear & clean the area of other food including other traps.


Don't push your finger in the entrances they are NOT spring loaded & you WILL bend the ramp so that it will not work.

In cold weather place a cardboad toilet roll tube in the mouse trap so the mice can stay warm.

Mice are smart !.
.......Mice don't want to be caught
................Mice won't go for the bait in the mouse trap unless there is
.........................No other mouse food available.

Legal Constraints There are several legal constraints that you must be aware of: Once set, the trap must, by law, be checked at least once every 24 hours. The legal methods of despatch are shooting, a single blow to the head, or humane despatch by a vet. It is illegal and inhumane to drown, stab, batter or cause unnecessary suffering to the animal.

Trap maintenance, periodically lubricate all moving parts using a smear of petroleum jelly. When the trap is laid up out of use wrap the whole trap in an oil soaked rag.
