    It's a chilling thought. Could a house as nice as yours have mice in it? You don't always see them, but they leave clear signs. You might start noticing droppings in the pantry, grease marks on the baseboards, or chew marks in food packaging. First of all, don't feel overwhelmed. Tomcat has you covered with effective rodent control products to help you deal with the problem.

    TOMCAT mechanical traps provide a quick and effective way to kill rodents in a way you can see working immediately.

    You want mice gone, but everyone has different preferences when it comes to trapping and killing them. TOMCAT has various trap options based on these preferences. Are you slightly squeamish when it comes to seeing a dead mouse? TOMCAT Kill and Contain Mouse Trap offers a no-see, no-touch way to trap and kill mice. It is also covered so kids and pets don’t snap fingers or paws.

    To set, add peanut butter or our specially formulated TOMCAT Attractant Gel in the bait cup and close the bait door. Move the arm to the SET location until you hear a click. Place the trap with the opening parallel to the baseboard or wall. Place the trap opening in the path of the suspected runway, parallel to the baseboard or other object. Rodents are creatures of habit—they like to take the same path to and from their nests. Your best bet for catching them is to intercept them as they travel back and forth. Check the trap frequently. When the indicator points to “Mouse Caught”, use the convenient grab tab to dispose of the entire trap. No fuss and no mess!

    If you are not concerned about seeing the dead mouse or actually want to see the evidence, Tomcat offers other highly effective, easy-to-use solutions

    TOMCAT Press ‘N Set Mouse Trap effectively kills and allows for easy, no-touch disposal. These plastic, spring-loaded snap traps are easy to set and reduce the risk of pinched fingers while setting.

    Place a small amount of attractant into the bait well prior to setting the trap. After baiting, pull the set bar back the entire way until you hear a “click” to tell you it is locked.

    Place with the “teeth” of the trap facing the wall. Rodents coming from either direction step on the trigger, which releases the trap. When the mouse has been caught, pick up the trap using the grab tab and dispose of the trap and the rodent in the trash. If you would prefer to reuse the trap, pinch it open and drop the dead rodent in the trash. Your fingers will never touch the dead mouse.

    Wooden traps are a time tested, quick, and effective way to capture mice but, as with any bait or trap, proper setting and placement is important.




    Set the trap close to where you want to place it, such as the baseboard. Add your bait to the cup on the yellow trigger. Position the pin away from the trap and carefully pull the spring-loaded U-shaped metal bar back to the opposite end and hold the bar firmly with one hand. With the other hand, place the metal pin over the U-shaped bar. Then lift the yellow trigger slightly and insert the curved end of the pin into the raised end slot of the trigger closest to the "S" side of the trigger for sensitive, or "F" for firm.

    Carefully position the trap without releasing it. Place the baited end of the trap flush against a wall. Once a rodent steps on the yellow trigger, the pin releases and the U-shaped bar snaps back, killing it.

    To dispose of a trapped rodent, wear disposable gloves. For easy removal, throw the trap and the dead rodent into the trash together.
