Victor® Clean-Kill™ Mouse Trap - 12 Traps
When Ralph Waldo Emerson, coined the phrase “Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door,” in the late nineteenth century, this is the trap they were talking about. Why? Because the Victor® Clean-Kill™ Mouse Trap is unlike other traps in that it offers a no-see, no-touch experience with easy, stress-free baiting and setting.
These clever little covered rodent traps look like a perfectly innocent little tunnel for unsuspecting mice. Once the mouse enters the trap to take the bait, however, it’s in the perfect position for the Kill-Gate™ to produce a quick, humane Clean-Kill™. The unique tunnel design increases mouse interaction, and since the bait trough is located at the back of the trap, bait theft is a thing of the past.Click image to enlarge
To empty the trap, simply hold the setting button down, while pulling up on the Kill Gate™ to dispose of the dead mouse. The Clean-Kill™ doesn’t use chemicals or poisons, so it’s ideal for households with children or pets. Plus, it’s highly durable plastic construction means the Clean-Kill™ can be used over and over or disposed of at your discretion.
Easy-to-use instructions for setting the Clean-Kill™ are printed directly on the covered mouse trap. Here’s how it works:
- Open the bait door located on the back of the trap.
- Using a Q-tip, toothpick or other tool to mask your scent, bait the trap by placing peanut butter or anything high in protein like chocolate or hazelnut spread in the bait trough.
- Close the bait door.
- Hold down the setting button while pulling up on the Kill-Gate™ to set the trap.
- Place the trap wherever you’ve seen signs of rodent activity, or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. Two traps should be used and placed back-to-back lengthwise against the wall.
- After the mouse is caught, properly dispose of the dead rodent. The trap can either be discarded or reused.

Most Recent Customer Reviews
Worthless. I use the basic snap trap with the yellow pedal, and it works all the time. Trouble is, that trap is so sensitive it frustrates me taking 10 or 20 tries to get the rod to stay in the pedal, so I tried this trap. It's easy to bait and set, but two traps have been sitting on the garage floor for two weeks with nary a mouse caught. A few years ago I tried another brand's trap that has an opening into which the mouse must venture to get caught, and that didn't work, either. My guess is that mice won't go into an enclosed trap, but they are suckers for the snap trap out in the open.Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this recent experience and appreciate the feedback regarding this trap.
When given a choice of baits, mice will usually go for the one that appears most accessible. In order to see the full potential of a trap with an enclosed bait, we recommend removing open snap traps from the area. Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with questions on any of our products.
Review RateGetting ready for action
Nothing caught so far. But I am a patient woman
Review RateIt worked great!
We bought these traps for our 85 year old mother because my sister recommended them. She has only had a mouse once before and my niece was living there and caught it. This time she saw the mouse and was very anxious about it when my sister said not only do they work but our mother wouldn't have to see the mouse when he gets caught and it worked! The mouse was caught just a couple of days after we set the trap.
Review Rate102 down and more to go.
Returned from a winter in Arizona and found residence over run with mice. Have tried all kinds of traps in the past with limited success...except with the tried and true wood base Victor snap traps. I've even started to photograph my successes. Kinda sick huh? But the little buggers deserve some kind of obit. So far 102 mice and one slug in two months. . I dump the mice on the edge of our woodland and crows pick them up daily. A natural recycling program. The Victor snap traps are the best...low cost and reusable!
Review RateDon't work
Promising at first, easy to set. But my country mice have not been able to trip them at all. Old models of a different design have been catching mice while these remain empty. Even when I took the other traps away, these were disturbed but not tripped. Totally useless sorry to say.Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative
Victor® has a long history of producing high-quality and reliable products. We are sorry to hear the expected results were not seen.
When setting this trap, we recommend placing two traps end-to-end along a wall where mice activity has been seen. This should increase the catch rate as they will approach an opening from either direction.

Review RateDIDN´T DO IT FOR MY UNFORTUNATELY
Set 3 of these about a week ago... no mice yet. I do know for a fact there are mice because I see the droppings. Just to confirm I had mice I also put a very small bait in the path of the traps and the next day they were gone and the droppings keep showing up. I´ve changed the type of bait, even the position of the bait.. and nothing. I purchased these because I had apparently been the luck recipient of a full litter of mice, and I had been buying the regular classic wooden traps, those were working like a charm, set one every night, woke up to find a mouse there every morning. Decided to get these because of the reusable feature since I was going through one trap a day, and because of the easier set up (i.e. less risk of getting my fingers smashed). Unfortunately they didn´t work, I´m now about $20 short and no mice caught. One star is for the ease of setup.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this experience. We apologize that the desired results were not seen when using this trap.
Mice will often look to steal bait that is easiest to access, which may be why the snap traps are receiving successful catches and the bait at the entrance of these traps have been taken. If there have not been successful catches after the trap has been in one position for a few days, we recommend relocating it to a different position. Keep in mind that mice prefer to travel along walls for safety.
Our traps are covered under a 30 day return policy. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.
Review RateDoesn't work, stick with the classics.
I bought four of these for $10 at the local Farm & Fleet after seeing mice droppings in my basement. All have been knocked over each day I check them, half the time the trap is tripped but no mice. After three days I bought four of the basic wire traps they make ($3.50) and caught two mice last night. Stick with the classic trap.Response From WoodstreambrandsLauren : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this unusual experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
This trap is tripped when a mouse enters and pushes on the wall beyond the Kill-Gate™. It should not trip if the trap is knocked over. We recommend placing two traps back-to-back lengthwise along a wall where mouse activity has been seen.

Review RateEasy and Effective
I bought a few of these traps and have had them set up for less than 2 weeks after noticing some activity in my basement. I have had successful results following good placement suggestions and caught the original intruder and a few of his friends. Using peanut butter as bait. Far easier to set than the older wooden style. I have purchased more and check them daily. Easy to see when the trap has been triggered.
Review RateFirst Impressions and Then...As the maintenance man at my church, something I never want to find is mouse droppings, so after finding a significant amount in the church kitchen, I knew it was past time to take action! The first name that came to mind was Victor; after all, they're the pest people.
After perusing their site, I decided to purchase 12 Clean-Kill mouse traps. Even though I selected the slowest shipping option, I received them promptly and put them to use in our kitchen and cafeteria. That was a Saturday. Sunday morning when I came to church, I had to check them, and I was delighted to find I had caught 5 mice!
I reset them, and two days later, I caught 1 more. Then...
I haven't caught any with these traps since then. It's probably partially my fault, because I didn't always where gloves when handling the traps, though I don't think I did when I first set them and caught the 5.
I'm wondering if anyone else has found these traps effective after the first kill series. Also, can I wash my scent off of them so they can hopefully become more useful again? Any other tips? I know we still have mice, but these traps aren't catching them anymore.Response From WoodstreambrandsTara : Consumer Relations RepresentativeWe apologize for the experience and appreciate the feedback. The two traps should be placed lengthwise against a wall in an area where mice are know to frequently travel. Peanut butter can be used for bait or nesting materials like dental floss, cotton or string.
