How to Use the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap (Video)
Same product as the popular Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap, for less!
Catchmaster Multi-Catch Mouse traps (MODEL 612MC) have a very low profile (only 1.75 inches tall) allowing them to be placed in tight areas or under pallets. A clear lid on top of the trap allows easy viewing of your catch. Catchmaster Multi-Catch Mouse traps are perfect for the home or for larger areas such as farms, chicken houses, warehouses, etc. These traps are also excellent for sensitive areas where rodenticides or snap traps are undesirable or prohibited.
Mice like to travel along walls and not across large open areas. Place the Catchmaster Multi-Catch Mouse trap along a baseboard or in a corner. When the area to be controlled is large, the infestation is severe, or to increase the effectiveness of the traps, place several traps along the walls about 10-15 feet apart.
1. Place the Catchmaster Multi-Catch Mouse trap lengthwise against wall or object with entrance holes nearest to that surface.
2. Use peanut butter or other typical mouse bait in the inside chamber to attract mice. (One customer put a dab at the top of the ramps and had great success!)
One very important thing to remember: it may take the mouse 1-2 weeks to become familiar enough with the trap, before it attempts to enter. At first the mouse may just go around the traps or run on top. However, once the mouse knows the trap isn't going anywhere, it will be confident enough to go through the trap. Mice are very cautious about new things in their environment.

Worked in just two days!
By Jeremiah on 03/15/2009
I set up the Catchmaster 612 Mutli-Catch Mouse Trap (with a spoonful of peanut butter) along the wall where I had seen mice running and in just two days I had both mice in the trap. I was clearly able to see the mice through the window on top of the trap. No blood and no guts! I freed the little devils back into the wild.

Works extremely well even outdoors
By Csc in Chicago, IL on 03/26/2010
Got one of these and yes they do work very well. I used mine outside to keep the mice at bay on my patios near my outdoor kitchen during the winter months. In a single weekend I caught 8 mice. The only problem is not with the design of the trap as it does exactly as it advertises, they can't get out once there in. But mice are extremely cannibalistic especially under stressed survival situations. So it was so gross inside the trap that I ended up throwing it way because there was no way I was going to clean that out! Definitely will buy a few more to replace it with.

Outwitted by mice
By Sabine in Santa Fe, New Mexico on 07/22/2009
Well, yes, I caught a mother and baby mouse in one night with cheese, but when I waited another night for the rest of the family to join them they had figured a way out. So this patent does not seem to be all that clever as compared with mice intelligence!
Thank you for your feedback! Mice are very cautious about new things in their environment. It is suggested when using a trap for mice, that it is not disturbed for 2 weeks. After a while, they will begin to investigate so it is best to leave it for at least 2 weeks before moving it to another area or before making any conclusions on the product's effectiveness. Also, please check out the product video on this page for tips and instructions on effective use.

Mice Running Amok
By Sherri in Winlock, Wa on 04/13/2010
I ordered your Catchmaster 612. The reason I needed it was I rescued 3 baby mice that the parents deserted when I tore down the shed and when I was feeding them one jumped (apparently in their flea stage!!), and darted off under the entertainment center. There he remained and lived for about 2 weeks. My dog alerted me that he had moved under the kitchen queen at which point I grabbed up the catcher, down on my belly on the floor and there he was. Placing the catcher in a strategic position I encouraged him to move forward and BAM he went right into the catcher. I was able to save him and return him to his siblings out in the barn, their new home!!! Thank you.

Only worked for a month
By Jill in Nova Scotia on 02/01/2013
The Catchmaster 612 worked really well - for a month. I caught 30 mice, sometimes 4 in one night, and I was happy to release them out in the woods. Then the mice got smart. They have now somehow figured out how to get in, get the bait (dog kibble and sunflower seeds) and get out. The trap still looks in perfect condition, like the day I bought it but it doesn't do its job anymore. Now it is just a mouse feeding station. And it cost nearly $20 with the tax.

Live Catchmaster is a humane way to catch mice
By Sc in Sodus, New York on 09/11/2015
I bought my first Catchmaster about 4 or 5 years ago. I have found that dry cat food is the best for luring the mice in. I put a paper towel in the open area and put about 10 pieces of the cat food in. This trap was fantastic this past winter when a neighbor living across the street was evacuated and they tore the place down. My neighbors and I were hit with the onslaught of hundreds of mice and/or rats. I check it daily to humanely get rid of the mice. Trick is to rinse it out so other mice don't smell any urine or feces inside. Of course my feral cats outside are very happy to see me with the trap because they I will be going to the wood pile in the field and they can hunt! I need another trap so I am now buying another one.

Very happy with our humane mouse trap purchase
By N. in Jackson, MI on 10/25/2014
We had a house mouse that was causing all kinds of trouble in our kitchen but I am an animal lover and couldn't stand the thought of using a "standard" mousetrap. I got online to do research to see if a humane trap existed and I was pleased to find this as an option. (However I was appalled at the idea of purchasing sticky glue pads to put inside the trap which would absolutely NOT be humane.) We put the trap out the day it arrived and by the next morning it had a furry resident. Our house mouse is now enjoying his freedom in a woods a mile or so away. I highly recommend this trap as an easy and humane way to relocate an unwanted houseguest. Plus there is NO need to get the glue pads as it was perfectly effective without it.

By Barb in Elgin, TX on 07/15/2014
I've had a mouse problem in my aviary, and have used several moustraps. They would occaisionally catch few mice each month. Then I used two CATCHMASTER 612, and within 24 hrs I trapped 13 mice. Its terricic because the birds and other animals in the aviary are safe. I consistenty caught several mice a day, and after a few weeks the mouse problem is no longer big issue. I still use the trap and catch a few each week, it has been amazing how effective the trap has been

I guess the original is made of better quality. This catchmaster feels weak and I'm afroid a mouse may escape if it is a little grown up!

this mouse trap is a mouse house
By Dan in Latham NY on 02/19/2013
Mice can coming and go as if they live in it. I have put some peanut butter inside this trap. They seem to have enjoy the peanut butter and left even big mice drops behind. It's either mice at my home has a brain like human knows how to break-out or this trap isn't working.

Caught mutiple mice....
By Vivian in Oviedo, FL on 02/14/2013
However, they can escape it. I used the mice sticky pads, as I had no attention of releasing the mice back into the wild to breed more mice. The sticky pads caught a few....but a few have escaped after being caught. Several times I though the sticky pads had caught one...only to find that an hour later that mouse was off the sticky pad and in the "run-in" tube....and somehow several mice have found a way out. They can't have lifted the lid....so they must have found a way out where they came in. I'm still not sure how they do this...but some mice seem to be able to enter...eat and then leave. And some mice do not seem to get fully stuck on the sticky pads. If you really want a live trap...and not hurt them...this sorta works. I wanted to be able to dump the sticky pad in the trash with the mice stuck to it....and that's a 50/50 kind of thing. About 50% do not get stuck...and 30% escape the trap on their own...after hours of running around on the inside.

Useless. Very thin metal construction. Mice squeeze out.

By Karen in Newark, DE on 01/23/2011
Within a few days we had caught our house guest. It is wonderful, because you can see inside without opening the lid. We took him down to the park and released him. My son initially wanted to just set a kill trap but once he saw him, he was glad he didn't.

QWill the holes on the side of the multi-catch mouse trap allow mice to get back out?
I know they can get through very small openings--what keeps them from escaping through the vent/air holes on the right and left side?
AOnce the mice get into the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap holding area they cannot get back out. It is true mice can fit through small holes, but the vents on the side of the trap are much too small for the mice to escape. We have sold these for 8 years and never heard of this being an issue.
QCan I use Contrac Blox in this trap? I have dogs and do not want the poisoned mouse to be around them.
I want something that will keep them where they are at until I can get rid of them.
AWe would not recommend putting Contrac Blox in the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap. Rodent bait can take up to five days to kill the mouse once they consume the bait. These traps are made to use with glue boards for faster kill. Using a glue board will also insure they cannot escape when you open the lid.
QWill the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap work for small rats?
I have some small rats around, but they're not big city rats. They are furry. I'm in western Washington. I need something like this that I can catch rats in while protecting my chickens from harm from bait (the chickens will play with and sometimes eat dead mice) or dangerous traps. Will this be too small to catch the odd rat or two? They're very resourceful and smart around here.
A No, Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Traps will not work for small rats. We recommend that you use the Protecta Sidekick bait station with a Trapper T-Rex snap trap inside. This will protect your chickens from the traps and will prevent you from having to use any type of bait. The T-Rex snap trap is very versatile as it can be used inside of the bait station and it can be zip tied or wired to pipes or beams if you suspect the rats are running around on them.

QWill the Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap work on Chipmunks?
AThe Catchmaster 612 Multi-Catch Mouse Trap will most likely not work for chipmunks. Chipmunks are a bit bigger than mice and may not fit into the trap. Most folks choose to use mouse or rat snap traps for chipmunk control.
