Review RateThese do NOT work
These do NOT work. The bait was completely gone and the trap doors were still open. What a waste of money!Response From Havahart®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative
We're sorry to hear that you did not experience the success we typically see with these traps! When using live traps, it is important to check them frequently as animals will go to great lengths to escape. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for assistance or with any questions, we're happy to help.
Review RateDoes not always give desired live humane release. Best to monitor and release ASAP.
The poor mouse was virtually dead when I found it in the morning covered in its own excrement. o\Obviously tried to get out all night, stressed out. It came good over the day but died the next day. Felt so bad for causing it such distress. Would of been more humane to kill it outright.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and appreciate the feedback.
This trap should be checked often so that the mouse can be released as soon as possible. Mice can die when trapped more than 8 hours.

Review RateJoke trap don't work
Complete joke of a trap Caught a mouse last night, I know I did because the mouse rattling in this plastic trap woke me up in the very early morning hours, and I got up to see, the trap had added weight and movement inside, I should have delt with it then because when I got up this morning the mouse was gone, easily escaped, it takes little to no effort to lift the door past the tiny plastic piece on the side designed to hold the door down one triggered, yes apparently even a mouse can do it, from the inside My purpose for buying this trap wasn't actually to save the mice lives but to um just prolong it for a bit, you see when I release a dead mouse out side, our outside cats would play with it a bit and then have lunch, and well, my kids thought it would be more sporting and fun to release the cats lunch if it were still alive, and I kinda agreed it might be fun exciting to watch, But not with this trap, you have to keep the mouse in the trap to do that, the trap is designed to release the mouse for you, before you can even get it outside, I guess next time I will have to get the kids out of bed at 1 in the morning if they want to see the cats have a midnight snack, before the trap automatically let's it go for me Sorry cats, no breakfast on the go this morning, just your old dry bagged crunchy stuff todayResponse From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this experience. When a trapped rodent has been discovered, we recommend releasing it as soon as possible to prevent the animal from panicking and attempting to escape.

Review RateDoesnt work
It is designed to close upon the mouse exiting, his weight tilts it down. Problem is, the weight closes the door as he begins to enter too. Easy for him to back away from it, or it scares him off. Poor design. Poor quality. Wasted my money.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for the experience and appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback. To lessen the sensitivity of this trap a bit, you can tape a quarter or something of similar weight just before the "V" in "Victor®" on the top of the trap. This should prevent it from triggering as easily until the mouse moves in further and tips it toward the back, releasing the door.

Review RateDon't work, too sensitive....
Maybe my mice are a little larger, but these traps do not work. The mouse just approaches the trap and it closes before they get in (the tiniest jiggle closes the door. So I still have the bait, a closed trap and no mouse. I would not recommend unless your mice/voles are very tiny. Even placing them back to back on a completely flat surface, as suggested, makes no difference.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience. If you find that there is a lot of external movement in the area that is causing the trap to close, try taping a quarter to the top of the trap to help stabilize it until a mouse enters. Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) for additional assistance.
Review RateHavahart was great, the mouse traps not so much
I baited one trap with peanut butter and the other with grass seed that the mice have been into before. Neither has caught a mouse. No idea why not - the traps are where there is a lot of mouse dirt so its not like they are not visiting the spot. Also, one trap, the one with the seeds, closes every night but no mouse is caught. Would not recommend these for field mice.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateYou get what you pay for.
In this 2-pack, one of the items had a door that could not even be hinged, and the door-lock mechanism on both did not work properly. Both went straight in the trash. I learned my lesson--should have gotten the Havahart Model 1020 to start with.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot a good mouse trapWe bought this about a month ago and are not very happy with it. The door doesn't stay open all of the time. When we got it set, we checked it the next morning and, not only was the bait gone but, the trap was turned upside down and the mouse had torn the door off. I don't recommend this trap unless you don't mind just feeding your mice.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello John,

Review RateThey don\'t workThe mice spring the trap before they get inside.Response From Havahart®Susan : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello James,
For best results, this trap should be placed along a wall on a level surface. If it can be placed in an area away from foot traffic, this will help ensure that it is not triggered before a mouse is inside. We appreciate the time taken to share this feedback and apologize for any inconvenience.
