With an oversized trip pedal, the Victor® Power-Kill™ Mouse Trap is hard to avoid, even for unsuspecting mice or those wary of traps. Its powerful High-Impact Kill Bar™ and easy-to-set one-click mechanism make the Power-Kill™ incredibly easy to use compared to other snap traps. The Power-Kill™ kills mice immediately and effectively, and its highly durable plastic construction means the Power-Kill™ can be used reused or disposed of, if desired.
Easy to Set
The trap’s large pedal holds a bait trough that’s easy to bait with a mouse’s favourite foods or nesting materials. A simple “click” sets the trap. Once set, place the Power-Kill™ along runways where mice are known to travel, or anywhere you see mouse activity. The one-step open and close action lets you easily and cleanly dispose of the rodent without touching the body or risking your fingers.
Oversized Trip Pedal
The Power-Kill™ Mouse Trap’s oversized trip pedal is activated whenever mice eat the bait OR accidentally step on it as they scamper across the floor. When the trip pedal is triggered, the High-Impact Kill Bar™ immediately and powerfully springs closed for a quick, humane kill. That’s why it is considered the most powerful mousetrap on the market today.
Indoor and Outdoor Use
The Victor® Power-Kill™ Mouse Trap is perfect for use anywhere in the home, indoors or out. Because it doesn’t use chemicals or poisons, it can be used in households with children or pets.
The Power-Kill™ is easy to set and use. Here’s how:
Remove the clip securing the kill bar.
Using a cotton bud, toothpick or other tool to mask your scent, bait the trap by placing peanut butter or anything high in protein like chocolate or hazelnut spread in the bait trough provided.
To set, pull back the kill bar until it clicks and the trap locks in place.
Place the trap wherever you’ve seen signs of rodent activity, or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The end of the trap with the bait pedal should be placed flush against the wall.
Once the mouse is caught, properly dispose of the dead rodent. The trap can either be discarded or reused.
