Tin Cat Mouse Traps are a long time favorite of mechanical traps for mice. Made in the USA for durability.

No setting required.
The entrance appeals to the natural curiosity of the mouse, but luring it with peanut butter or vanilla extract would help lure quickly.

Mouse Traps and Rat Traps

There are a variety of devices to choose from when trapping rats or mice.
The three main groups of rat and mouse traps are live traps (humane mouse traps), snap traps and mouse glue traps.
Rodenticides are also used to kill rats and to kill mice.

There are several advantages for using mouse traps or rat traps:

1.  Traps are safer than potential hazardous poison baits

2.  Mouse traps and rat traps provide quick, immediate results

3.  Easy disposal of dead rodents avoiding odor problems that will occur if rodenticides kill rodents in inaccessible areas.

4. Types of Mouse traps or Rat traps:

  •   Snap Traps: Rat Size and Snap Traps Mouse Size
    You may need more rat or mouse traps than you think is warranted.

    Rats are often shy of new objects and placing unset traps in a new location for a week or two will increase the opportunities of catching. This will acclimate the rats to the traps, once acclimated, set enough traps to kill the a large percentage of the population before the rodents become "trap shy." This is called mass trapping, trapping them at a higher rate than they can repopulate and become shy of the trap.

    There may be a need to have as many as 2 - 3 dozen rat traps set in place in a commercial establishment, in an infested trash room for example. By having these traps baited with a Rat/Squirrel lure or peanut butter unset, a large population would be use to feeding on around the traps. When the traps are then simultaneously set after a while of this "feeding", a large kill can be obtained.

  • The spring on the rat snap trap is very strong, (it could break a finger) so keep it out of reach of your pets and small children.

  •    Multiple Mouse Traps

  •   Mouse Glue Boards/Traps and Rat Glue Traps

  •   Live Animal Traps-Rats,Squirrels and Chipmunks,Opossums, and Raccoons

The adult house mouse is small and slender and about 1-2 inches long, excluding tail. It has large ears, pointed nose and small eyes. The tail is as long as the head and body combined. The fur color varies, but it is usually a light grey or brown, but could be darker shades.


Mice will eat almost anything, but prefer cereal grains, seeds, or sweet material. They require very little water, obtaining most of their water needs from their food.


If there are good living conditions(food, water, and shelter),they can multiply rapidly. They sexually mature in two months, producing about 8 litters in a one year life time. Each litter has 4-7 pups. A house mice in a city environment may spend it's entire life in buildings. In rural and suburban settings, it may not only live inside, but be found outside near foundations, in the shrubbery, weeds, crawl spaces, basements, or in garages. They survive well on weeds, seeds, or insects, but when their food supply is shortened by the colder months they move inside nesting closer to a food supply. They make their nest from soft material like paper, insulation, or furniture stuffing. These nest are found in many places including: in walls, ceiling voids, storage boxes, drawers, under major appliances, or within the upholstery of furniture. Outside the nests are found in debris or in ground burrows.

Mice while being "nibblers" eating many times at different places, they do have two main meal times...just before dawn and at dusk...they simply "snack" at other times at intervals or every 1-2 hours. They can eat about 10 to 15% of their body weight every day, the adults weighing about 5/8 - 1 oz. They get much of there water from food products.


Their droppings(feces)are about 1/8-1/4 inch long, rod shaped. They gnaw small, clean holes about 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Many times in kitchens you will find gnawing damage on the corner of boxes and paper, shredded for their nest. They will gnaw at bar soaps.
