Easy to bait. No more pinched fingers! Easy to set. Easy to release. Never touch the mouse. These traps have small cups to hold bait so rodents will almost always trigger the trap. The vertical strike bar travels half the distance of the old-fashioned wooden traps. The extra large trip paddle and strike bar catches rodents from the front, sides and back. Durable, sanitary and easy to clean and reuse. Resists stains and odors. Controls mice, voles, shrews.
