The mice trap needs no bait and catches multiple mice in one setting. Wind the trap 6 to 8 half (180 degree) turns. Place the mice trap 1 1/2″ to 2″ parallel to the wall or set perpendicular to a wall in a space where mice are known to travel. Mice will detect the entrance in the side of the trap with their whiskers. They will naturally investigate the tunnel and trip the paddle. Simply slide back the top lid, pull up the end plate and dispose of the mice.
