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.

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.

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.

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.

By Jeffery in West Valley city on 05/13/2017
Professional quality traps at fraction of cost of exterminator. Have caught 6 mice in first week. Using in storage facility.
Love this item!!
By Janel in Creston, Iowa on 05/02/2017
This live trap is amazing!! We have caught 11 mice so far! I run an animal rescue and do not want poison out as I have several dogs that can possibly get in it, not to mention I don't need the smell of the mice in my walls after they die. This is a great way to catch the mice, the product is inexpensive and very effective!! I highly recommend anyone with the mouse problem to get this trap!!

Humane mouse trap!
By Heidi in Spencer, OK on 01/25/2017
Very easy to use, requires no set-up, and no dead, bloody mouse body to dispose off. Carry to release area, open the lid, and let the mouse go.

I had this still in the box. Saw mouse in garage. In 6 minutes it was caught. I used trail mix for bait. Amazing! Felt bad for little guy but he was let go in the forrest so alll good.
By Scott in Tucson, AZ on 11/24/2016
I thought I had only one mouse living under my house, so I bought this trap to catch it and release it on the other side of town. No mouse on the first day, but the second day, I caught one. I took it about 10 miles away and let it run off. When I got home, I put the trap back, but with no bait. About an hour later, another one walked into the trap! Long story short, I caught three mice! No more squeaks coming from under my house! This is a simple, yet wonderful trap. The mice cannot escape no matter how hard they try.
no mice inside yet
By Denise in brooklyn on 11/17/2016
So far there isn't any mice trap inside since I got it. Maybe the mice are too smart or the mice couldn't get inside...
If you haven't had traps very long, then you may need to give the rodents a few days to trust the traps. You can also use a food attractant like peanut butter or pet food on the inside edge of the ramp to help lure mice into the traps.

Fabulous way to catch field mice!
By Kerry in Beaumont, Texas on 10/11/2016
I bought two of these live-catch traps. One for my infested garage, and one for the house. The garage rodents were disposed of in three days, often with multiple catches. I did add a glue board to the trap for bait. The mouse that I knew I had in the house was caught the second day the trap was out, also with a glue board inside. These worked much better than just the glue boards by themselves.
smart or lazy mice
By Mike in Lehigh Acres on 09/14/2016
I used this at a friend's house. He has been trying to get rid of some mice for over a year with no luck. They can be heard in the attic and occasionally spotted running across the floor at night. We put dry cat food in it, checked it two days later and nothing. Haven't had time to try anything else, if we ever get it working we'll update.
We apologize you have not received the expected results! When trapping mice, trap placement is very important. You want to make sure the trap is placed parallel to a wall directly in the travel path of the mice. Can you tell us how the trap was placed?

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.

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 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.

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.
