Frequently asked questions about Wilson MOUSE OUT Live Capture Mouse Trap

The trap has to be baited and set, and placed along walls where you suspect activity. The bait inside the trap attracts the mouse to crawl in, and as it moves inside, the trap tips up automatically, closing the trap door. No harm is done to the mouse and you should release it outside, far from your house.Trapping this way is humane, as long as the traps are checked regularly.

Yes. There are no safety issues with the MOUSE OUT Live Capture Mouse Trap.

Always use quality bait that mice like. Peanut butter is an ideal option since it sticks to the bait holder, doesn’t fall off, and mice have to climb inside the trap to get to it. Check your traps regularly. Once tripped,the live mouse needs to be relocated outdoors, far from your house. The trap needs to be reset and put back in place. You need to continue using it until you’re sure that there are no more mice in your house.

Always put traps in areas where there is a lot of activity. If you see mouse droppings, this is a sign that traps should be placed in that room. Place traps along the walls and edges of your room. Mice aren’t likely to go through the centre of the room unless they are being chased. Instead, they tend to scurry along the edges of your room. Put traps along the walls near entry points like doors and windows.


Move your traps to different areas if nothing has been caught within a few days of putting them in place. Sometimes you have to experiment with placement to figure out what will work inside and outside your home. Stick with the same type of bait once you find something that works. This is essential to trapping as many mice as possible and ridding your home of an infestation quickly. Refresh bait every week if it does not lure mice. Use MOUSE OUT Live Capture Mouse Trap around the edges of your home and entry points to keep mice out.

Usually just one mouse but there have been instances of two or three mice captured at the same time!

Although one mouse is not considered an infestation, you need to consider that a single female can have 5-10 litters a year, with 6-8 babies each time. A newborn female mouse can start breeding at 6 weeks of age.It is important to nip the problem in the bud before it escalates!
