The original wood-based wire snap trap, the Victor Easy Set Mouse Trap provides instant rodent control and is safe for household use. For effective mouse control, each trap comes pre-baited with a large, scented plastic âswiss cheeseâ trip pedal. The large pedal is easily activated â both by rodent interest in food and through accidental contact as mice scamper across the floor â to ensure maximum trapping. Once a rodent triggers the pedal, the mouse trap immediately springs closed to eliminate the pest on contact. It can then be easily disposed of for quick and clean removal. The traps require no chemicals or poisons, so they are an ideal mouse control device for use around food, water, children and pets.
