Mouse Trap Instructions

  1. Release the arm bar from the staple.
  2. Move the arm bar to the back of the trap so it hangs over the back of the trap.
  3. Apply a small amount of high-protein bait, such as peanut butter, chocolate or hazelnut spread to the metal pedal on the trap as shown. Be sure to use a Q-tip, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.
  4. Pull the kill bar back and hold it in place with your thumb.
  5. Take the arm bar over the kill bar and latch the end of the arm bar on the metal pedal as shown.
  6. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The end of the trap where the metal pedal is baited should be placed flush against the wall.
  7. After the mouse is caught, properly dispose of the dead rodent. The trap can be either discarded or reused.
