5 Stars By Joshua Buckman on 2015-02-08 21 Mice in 24 Hours - WOW FINALLY something that works! We live in an older house in downtown Denver and had noticed an increasingly bad mouse problem as the winter progressed. I had tried a variety of different types of traps, all of which failed to catch a single mouse. After reading the other reviews here, I decided to give these a try. Within the first HOUR the traps were out, 11 of the 12 were full. A day later, we've caught 21 mice and the traps finally seem to have stopped going (maybe we caught them all?). It's amazing to me that something so simple could benefit from a truly superb design, but the results speak for themselves. A little dab of peanut butter in the center, and you're good to go. If you're looking for traps that will actually solve the problem, these are what you want.
1 Stars By Eric Varsanyi on 2016-12-04 Great initially, fails over time These mouse traps did catch a couple of mice each over the last year, however now we keep finding the traps looted.
I put a security camera up near one of them to see how the mice were owning the traps, its attached.
I'd say they're wonderful traps if you plan on using them once and throwing them away with the mouse.
1 Stars By RoadCommuter on 2016-08-08 and the yellow rubber band was very short like 3/4 of the total length Buyers beware the one sold by AlumiGogo LLC are fake. They don't have "bait with Nara" sticker, and the yellow rubber band was very short like 3/4 of the total length. The fake ones break even before I attempted to set it up. Please see attached picture and don't be fooled. I ordered a few from ePest Solutions Online and they are authentic. Please keep in mind that the real ones will say Kness E-trap printed under the lever, and has a sticker "bait with nara" at the top. The yellow rubber band should be spanning all the way from left to right.
3 Stars By Alexander J. on 2015-05-30 TIE FLOSS AROUND THE TRAP TO INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS I have a story for all the people who bought these traps thinking they would work 90-100% of the time given the overwhelmingly positive reviews.
One day, I was walking through my kitchen looking for some water. I live with two roommates, one of whom is quite messy and leaves his dishes in the sink with half-eaten food. In retrospect, this was just asking for disaster, but I didn't realize it at the time. When I opened my fridge, I happened to look behind my shoulder. I saw this 3-4" mouse just hanging out on the counter by the sink, with an expression that said, "yo, what's up man?" It then ran away, and I grabbed my glass of water and got out of there. You see, I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to mice, so whenever I see one, I declare war.
I come on here looking for some good mousetraps and I find these Snap-E traps that have ~1000 mostly positive reviews. I proceed to order six of them, and I set them up around the kitchen exactly as you're supposed to (spring plate to the wall, around walls, with the bait in the little cup). Over the next week, I didn't catch any mice. I did notice little brown mouse droppings appearing from time to time on my kitchen counters, stove, and sink. I did not doubt the effectiveness of the trap despite my failure to catch any of those cute little rodent bastards. I believed the traps weren't catching anything because I was using bait such as bits of pizza and cotton balls, so I went to the store to get some peanut butter and candy. I then set up all six traps around the kitchen, and went upstairs to watch the Cavs pummel the Hawks during the Eastern Conference Finals.
Lo and behold, when I opened the door to my room......I SAW ANOTHER MOUSE. It ran under my desk and disappeared from sight. At that point, ish got real. This mouse wasn't paying rent, and it wasn't welcome. I took three traps and placed them around my room. Over the subsequent 3-4 days, I would walk to my desk having set the trap with bait and return to find the bait gone. This happened at least 3-4 times. I tried to block all holes in my room with steel wool, to no avail. The mouse in my room was a really small baby, so I think it could fit into spaces about 1-3 mm wide, which is pretty insane. It kept eating my bait and running back to its nest, which was pissing me off. I wasn't trying to run a mouse hotel complete with free buffets, so I decided the time was ripe for catching the little bastard. I took some dental floss (they love to use it to build their nests), tied it around the yellow plastic covering on the bar, and tied the other end to the baseplate. Then I covered that with peanut butter and placed it in my closet, because it kept running back into my closet whenever it saw me. Two days later, I woke up to find the trap knocked over, after it had caught the mouse. The mouse was so tiny that I initially mistook it for a dust bunny that had somehow gotten caught in my trap.
The moral of this story is to set the trap up in such a way that makes up for its biggest design flaw. That is how the bait cup is set up relative to the spring plate. Someone had written about this in an earlier review. The bait is set up below the spring plate, which hangs over the bait at a height of about 1 cm. A smart mouse, or a really small one like the one that was in my room (it was like 1-1.5 inches long with a really tiny body) will just eat the bait from the cup without triggering the trap. They will just put their tiny heads under the plate and eat from the cup, and thank you for providing them with free food. If you tie floss around the yellow plastic part of the bar (that is the part that will kill them once they put pressure on the plate) and the plate itself, the mouse will try to free the floss and they will most likely step on the plate in an effort to grab it. Cover the floss with some peanut butter to draw them towards it. You may not want to put bait in the little cup. I didn't want the mouse to steal the bait and ignore the floss. The only flaw in this plan is the fact that they may just chew through the floss and steal it, but I'd be surprised if most mice are that smart or that agile to avoid triggering the baseplate. So far, I have only caught one mouse, so I am no expert. The one I saw in my kitchen (possibly the baby mouse's momma) still roams free. However, the fact that I was able to catch that tiny baby mouse, despite its speed and resourcefulness gives me confidence that tying floss around the trap in the manner I have done will catch most mice that try to steal it.
Had the trap caught the baby mouse without me having to tie floss around it, it would have received 5 stars. It is worth noting that the trap was fast enough to catch that baby mouse. That thing would have made Usain Bolt look slow, given how quickly it scurried away from me. I've attached a picture just in case anyone is confused about the manner in which I set the trap.
5 Stars By Mr. Kool on 2013-12-04 Never thought I would review a mouse trap. But this one is wonderful. After 7 cheap grocery store mouse traps had the peanut butter licked out of them without springing shut (3 nights in a row), I decided to try something different.
Caught that elusive mouse the very first night!
Bait is placed under the very big trip lever in a reservoir. Really no way to just lick the peanut butter out without tripping the lever.
Kill bar travels half the distance.
You never have to touch the kill bar. A similar looking bar at the rear of the trap allows you to set the trap or release dead mice.
MADE IN MY HOME STATE of IOWA!
5 Stars By Michael on 2016-10-07 Definitely a better mouse trap! Yes, there is a better mousetrap, and this is it!
I purchased these (6-pack) because I was frustrated with the hit-or-miss effectiveness of the the standard, old-fashioned mouse traps. The attic crawl space above my bedroom has gotten a lot of "foot traffic" lately so much so that it wakes me up at night. The old fashioned wood and metal traps worked sometimes, but mostly not. They're tricky to set up and the mice more often than not get a free peanut butter meal - without even tripping the darned things! So I read the reviews and sprung for a 6-pack of the Snap-E traps. Like I did with the other ones, I drilled a hole on the back edge of each trap. I fastened two traps on each of two narrow boards, about 18" long by 3" wide (four traps total). I loaded them with just a dab of peanut butter, set the metal "kill-bars" and put the boards up in the crawl space. 24 hours later, three of the traps had dead mice in them, and one trap was un-tripped, with the peanut butter untouched. I'm betting that if there was a fourth mouse in the attic, he would have bought the farm too! I didn't set the traps against a wall because the access to the crawl space is too small for me to reach a wall. I simply placed the boards on the rafters and made sure I'd be able to reach them. The mice found 'em just fine!
These traps are great - they're easy to set up, and they're VERY effective! Even better - and as advertised - you simply pull back the arm and the mouse falls out of the trap into the garbage. The yellow plastic tubing on the kill bar doesn't cut through the mouse. No blood, no mess! You don't even have to fill the bait cup again (unless the peanut butter dries up) because the mice have no time to eat any of it. They touch the plate and BAM, they're history! Just pull the bar back to reset the trap and set 'em back up!
Thanks for a great, inexpensive mouse trap!
5 Stars By Eric Wentz on 2016-09-30 Amazing mouse traps, 3 mice caught in 3 days. Couldn't be happier with these mouse traps.
I had a mouse in the house and it was leaving its mess around so I saw these simple to use mousetraps and saw how people really liked them so I bought them.
With 6 traps you can really set them up all over to cover more ground and increase your success. They are super simple to set up, not like the old fashioned mousetraps where you pull back the spring tensioned bar and hold it down with a separate hook where any slight bump will set them off prematurely. These pull back and lock into place with one hand. As long as you don't press down the release you can toss these traps around without worry. I set up all six and baited them with cheerios and cheese in the little bait cut which is an awesome design. The bait is held in a stationary cup below the release so the mouse has to climb on the release to get to the bait. The old traps you put the bait on the release which would be messy and you couldn't really use dry bait but something that would stick to the release mechanism. You would also find that the mouse could trigger the old traps and then eat the bait. This trap it is much harder to do that as it is harder to snap the trap without getting in the line of fire.
I ended up catching 3 mice over a few days and not very big ones either. Two were about the size of a half a dollar bill and the third one was about the size of my thumb. I also didn't have any traps trigger without a mouse in them and I didn't have any food removed from the bait cup. That is what I call success. The traps can be used over and over and over again so I kept releasing the dead mouse into the trash and setting the same trap up again. I actually caught all three mice in the same trap in the same location. I am very happy with the results and highly recommend these traps.
5 Stars By Greenpoint on 2016-01-22 I set these bad boys up with some peanut butter yesterday and ended ... After finding I had a mouse problem I bought regular wood traps and glue traps. Ended up catching 10 that way. We thought we beat them until we started seeing the regular wood traps getting licked clean. I ran a time lapse and recorded it happening but there was only one mouse and he learned his way around the existing traps.
I did this 4 nights in a row, watching this thing make a fool of me, my 3 roommates and our cat. I set these bad boys up with some peanut butter yesterday and ended up clapping the f*cker in broad daylight in this trap.
Upon testing the mechanism, it has an extremely sensitive trigger compared to the traditional spring-loaded version. I still need to run the time lapse another few nights before I'm sure (a bug out to watch!) but I think we got em all!
5 Stars By Stargzn on 2016-12-02 It goes against my grain to give a good review on something which kills It goes against my grain to give a good review on something which kills, but I can find no fault with this trap. In the past I had bought two glue traps, thinking they would be easy to catch the varmints, but I sat and cried my eyes out when the first one screamed when it couldn't escape the glue. I knew I had to do something because it was suffering so I drowned the poor baby, as quickly as possible. Never, ever again. Those glue traps could not be more inhumane. I was shocked at how easy the Snap-E was to set. No more old-fashioned (now very cheaply made) wood spring traps for me. This trap is solid and sturdy, and within a couple of hours, it had found an interested party. It wasn't set within my sight, but I heard it go off, and found it had performed perfectly. One down, and no blood. Of course I still had the guilts, but at least there was no lingering death. The next went off a day later. Same thing, but this time there was a little blood. For both, I pressed the other side, and the yellow lever lifted up, and it was a very easy disposal. A quick wipe with disinfectant, and they are good to go. It's been three days since I've heard scurrying, and no new catch. Pretty sure there were only a couple, but time will tell. At least I have a trap which works, as advertised. So sorry little guys :(
2 Stars By TGomez on 2015-04-07 Mice lick the bait clean without triggering the trap Well, so here's the problem. I've set out numerous of these with peanut butter in the bait bowl. All of my traps are outside. The mice--perhaps ninja mice?--lick the bowls out without the trap being triggered. How is this possible? It has to do with the trigger. The trigger is a platform of sorts that hovers just above the bait bowl. The problem is that the platform only triggers the trap when the platform is pushed down. Mice can put their head under the platform, push it UP a bit, and lick out the bowl. The trap would work so much better if the platform triggered the trap if pushed down OR up. Additionally, some of my ninja mice triggered the trap but were not caught in its clutches. Incidentally, this design--pushing down alone triggering the trap--appears in other traps I have purchased. It's not just this one. And those others were all licked clean too. After four days of rebaiting 16 traps licked clean every night, only one caught a mouse (and that was on the first night). The only thing that seems to catch the mice for me more regularly are live traps where the mice have to walk into a box with a one-way tunnel. I have caught some that way.
