Victor Professional Wooden Mouse Snap Trap M325


Victor Professional Mouse Trap is the traditional form of mouse trap that has been used for years with very little changes and it’s because it works!


Snap traps have long been a practical method of rodent control because of their affordable cost, and simple set up. You could for a low price purchase a number of snap traps and set many at once to capture a rat and perhaps there is no snap trap better than the Victor Professional Snap Trap.


Victor makes two versions of their classic trap, the standard and the professional. The difference between the two is that the trigger plate is much larger on the professional trap and it has two settings for the purposes of sensitivity.


You can place the trigger bar of the Victor Professional Snap Trap to the left or F setting or you can move the trigger to the right setting for “sensitive”. What setting you use depends upon the area where the trap is placed.


If you set a trap in an area where there is heavy machinery or a lot of movement or vibration, this movement could set off the trap thus it would be best to put it on the firm setting so it will be trigger be a much firmer activity.


Professional traps also come with a yellow bait pad that is pre-scented with cheese and gives off the optical illusion that cheese is on the trap to entice mice to be lured toward the trap without the need for baiting the trap.


Bear in mind though that you want to use the Victor Professional Snap Trap to catch a rat and not a mouse trap. Using an average mouse trap to catch a rat will not be powerful enough to kill a much larger rat and if anything, it will just annoy them and make them angry. Don’t waste your time (and money) with a mouse trap for mice.



You can use the best possible rat trap, but if you do not know how to properly place it and set it, it will do you no good and you won’t have success in eliminating your rat problem. It’s best to do a little homework on mice to better understand how it thinks, moves around and what their tendencies are.

Mice make up for their poor vision by having excellent photographic memories.  Once a rat finds a safe way to get to its desired destination, they will continue to travel that path over and over again.  This is why mice are so skilled at maneuvering around in mazes when used for experiments.

Because mice aren’t able to see well, they locate paths by touch instead of sight.  A rat will feel a path by keeping its body against a wall or other solid object.

Mice communicate with each other through the chemicals in their urine and droppings.  They put this information along their travel routes.

For example, if you are dealing with mice in your attic often you will find a matted path against a board that is layered with rat poop and stained with urine.

This is the trail of sorts that the mice will utilize everyday and the ideal spot where you should lay out your Victor Professional Snap Trap. When setting down traps, consider way the rat will be moving around. This will make it easier for the rat to set off the trigger.

The preferred way of placing the trap is to place it parallel to the travel path or flush against the wallboard.  This placement improves chances of a full body strike instead of a partial snap to the tail.


When you are dealing with multiple mice which is typical in an attic infestation then it is better to set out about a dozen traps at once.  Setting down only a couple of traps will alarm the mice who will figure out that something is going on and become very cautious.

Mice are smart and when they sense trouble they are inherently careful and will be averse to any traps laid out.  Capture as many as you can at once before they smarten up to your intentions. If the rats figure out how to avoid the traps then you will need to switch to poisonous baits (like Eratication Rodent Bait).

A shopper on Jan 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Can you send an picture of the trap? Are all of them doing the same thing or just one trap?
What if Mice go around trap?
Joey on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mice are pretty curious creatures, so if the trap is baited correctly and place in a known location of activity, one will usually capture the mouse. I would recommend using multiple traps and even mouse glue boards to increase your capture rate.

Simple and Effective
Great price for a well-made trap that works great. Just add a little peanut butter, set the sensitivity and you are done. Virtually instantaneous kill, and reuse as needed.
Just don't get too comfortable while setting the trap. It will give your finger a hefty zap if you are not paying attention.
