Mictrap Multi-Kill Electronic Mouse Trap
Kills Mice with A Humane High-Voltage Shock
A revolutionary method of mouse control, the Mictrap Multi-Kill Electronic Mouse Trap uses a high-voltage shock to kill mice humanely in seconds. Plus, it’s easy to use – simply bait, place and turn on! When a kill is made, the trap will alert you with a blinking green light.
The Multi-Kill Mouse Trap can be used anywhere indoors. It doesn’t use chemicals or poisons, and features a built-in safety switch that automatically deactivates the trap whenever someone opens the lid.
Able to Kill Up to 10 Mice per Setting
Needing to constantly empty and reset traps can be a pain when you have a persistent mouse problem. After a kill, the Shock N’ Drop Chamber rotates automatically to deposit the dead mouse in the collection drawer, and then resets itself. The trap is able to hold up to 10 dead mice per setting, eliminating the need to empty the trap after every kill.
Two Staircases Allow for Dual Entry
Mice enter through staircases on either side of the trap to reach the chamber where the bait and metal plates await. Inside, the tunnel and beveled columns hold the mouse in place. This contact completes the circuit to deliver a high-voltage shock that kills the mouse in seconds.
Indicator Light Alerts You of Kills
Stop checking your traps every time you enter the room! The Multi-Kill will alert you of a catch automatically. The LED light above the power switch will blink green for up to seven days to indicate a kill. When the collection drawer is full, the light will blink yellow. If you see a flashing red light, it’s time to replace the batteries!
No-Touch, No-See Mouse Disposal
Having a mouse infestation is bad enough, but who wants to deal with the unsettling task of disposing of the mice you catch? The Multi-Kill Electronic Mouse Trap will alert you when a kill occurs and when the trap is full. To empty the trap, simply slide open the collection drawer and dump the dead mice directly into the trash for a clean, no-see, no-touch disposal.
How to Set the Multi-Kill Electronic Mouse Trap
Follow these step-by-step instructions for setting, placing and emptying your electronic trap:
1. Remove the battery cover. Insert 4 C-cell batteries before replacing the battery cover.
2. Open the top of the Multi-Kill Electronic Mouse Trap.
3. Bait the trap using the bait trough located on the back wall of the trap. Apply a small amount of peanut butter or other high-protein bait. Use a Q-tip, toothpick or other tool when baiting so you don’t transfer your scent to the trap. Close the lid.
4. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along a wall where rodents primarily travel. Place the trap lengthwise against the wall with the entrance hole nearest the wall.
5. Turn on the trap. A green light will blink once to show the trap is working properly.
6. Once set, a blinking green light will indicate a kill. Dispose of the dead rodents and clean out bait. Place and reset the trap for continued rodent control.
The idea behind this trap is that, baited, it emits the delicious odor of peanut butter that induces mice to walk up some little mouse stairs and enter the peanut butter chamber where, unbeknownst to the murine, the floor is lined with metal electrocution plates that kill the mouse in a brief, humane jolt.
Generally it works.
But, apparently mice are smart creatures indeed because something amazing happened: after the first kill, a second mouse smelled the peanut butter but somehow understood the grave danger—perhaps the mouse smelled the corpse of the dead compatriot or perhaps he actually saw it enter and fail to exit— I don’t know for sure, but he climbed up the outside of the trap and began to carefully chew his way into the lid of the death chamber until he was able to get at the peanut butter inside without walking on the electrocution floor and thereby procuring a meal and avoiding death. I don’t know about you, but that seems eerily intelligent to me—so intelligent that I am not sure I can bring myself to kill these creatures any more.
Second problem: On opening the “kill drawer”–the place where the corpses are deposited– I was startled to find a live mouse inside. I am not sure how this happened but it raises the disturbing possibility that the device sometimes fails to kill and merely stuns. Be sure to empty the kill drawer every day.
Finally, these are generally good machines that perform as advertised. I have used them for years. But they may not always kill the mouse and mice are smart.

Package arrived, everything was normal. Amazon box with no packaging filler.
Placed this unit in our chicken house where wild mice run pretty rapid. I placed a very small smears of peanut butter on the stairs and a small clump on the inside chamber(as directed).
First few hours during the night they were pretty skittish. The next morning my brother checked the trap before I got there, but my mom did inform us the trap was flashing yellow.
My brother reported 9 mice. Great catch for the first night!
19 total caught overnight.
Came in and checked the trap at midnight. Pulled out 10.
Reset and came back at 1:30am, I open the top chamber to find a live mouse starting to make his way to the bait in the chamber.
I close it back up and sure enough 5 seconds later I could hear the sizzling shock for 30 seconds followed by the dump door.
This makes 28 out of the chicken house in the first 2 nights.
Im out of town but my mother has reset the trap on her own now. our total is now up to 48 on this one trap.
Kill number in our chicken Coupe is in the 60-70 number..
We have found only about 5 or so still running around at night and it seems they’ve caught on.. But still getting 1-2 a week even after cleaning it out and rebaiting it.
Definitely been Uber effective. We use the Mictrap electric rat traps(3 of them, 2 in our house and 1 outside between shop and garage) and they’re consistently effective. And for the large mice who are eating well, the rat trap is less complicated and easier to kill with.
This trap works very well, for as long as it works. Mine started having a problem with the kill floor not returning all the way to the proper position after dumping dead mouse into the bin and would set off the blinking red light. I would have to manually push it the rest of the way into place, then it would work but would only kill one mouse at a time since it was malfunctioning with each kill. Then it stopped working completely. Kept it clean, put fresh batteries, nothing I did worked. And I’m just past the one year warranty point, of course. For the price I paid for this trap I do expect it to last a lot longer then a year! But this seems to be one thing consistent with all these electronic traps, I’ve had a few different brands, none have lasted more then a year.

Easy to use , lets you know if its working or caught something .Caught two within seconds of each other HA!! My flat is infested with poxy mice, but after first two it hasn’t caught any more .Cleaned it thoroughly as well and placed at various areas but alas nothing yet .Mice are smart!Maybe they just “know”its a trap ?Very quick at dispatching the buggers though , mere seconds .Very humane .Be careful of small opening at top that flips up to apply bait ,its easy to break .Luckily it still clips back on.
So far so good. We have battled mice on and off for 30 years in our backyard due to it being former farm field. I have used many different types, with the last being the white plastic claw type traps. After success last year, they got wise and got the peanut butter/dog food off without setting off the traps. Part of this happens when you have juvenile mice. I was a little leery of the price but needed to do something. Immediately it caught two juvenile mice. I like the fact it was literally no touch disposal. I followed all of the directions to a tee, including using a tooth pick to place pea sized piece of peanut butter on the back wall.
I particularly like I don’t have to use poison traps and worry about other animals eating the bait or the poisoned mice. * Bonus. Batteries included.

I was not thinking correctly when I bought this. In my frustration at trying to deal with maybe a couple of mice I foolishly opted to use an elephant gun to kill a mosquito I guess. After unboxing this very large device it dawned on me that I indulged in overkill for this operation. Now, if I had a warehouse or a barn to keep clear of mice this would be great. But it is just too much capacity and capability for a normal home. Not to mention, it’s expensive. It does catch mice, but it’s ugly and when placed out of the way you can’t really see the indicator light. It would be nice if it had a beep alert but it doesn’t. Don’t misunderstand, it works fine, but are you really expecting to catch 10 mice a night? Also, do you have a rat problem? This doesn’t work on rats. Mice are little guys but a rat will not fit into this thing at all. I am thinking my money would be better spent on a few of the electronic mouse traps that handle one mouse at a time. I’m drawn to the WiFi one that Victor sells. I don’t like the idea of not knowing that I’ve trapped a mouse and not discovering it until it has decomposed and made a mess. I do like how these electronic traps seem to kill quickly and humanely so that is a priority for me. In conclusion, this trap is exactly as advertised and does what it says. I just don’t need this much firepower to get the occasional mouse in the attic.
