How To Use Deadfast Catch & Release Mouse Traps

Video step-by-setp instructions on how to use our Deadfast Catch & Release Mouse Traps.


  1. Open the door of the trap.
  2. Bait the trap using peanut butter or anything high in protein, like chocolate or hazelnut spread, in the back of the trap.
  3. Be sure to use a Q-tip, toothpick, or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.
  4. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel.
  5. The trap should be placed lengthwise against the wall with the entrance hole nearest the wall.
  6. Placing two traps back to back will help your chances to catch more mice.
  7. After a mouse is caught, and with the door facing away from you, lift the door to release the mouse.
  8. We recommend releasing the mouse at least two miles from your home or business to discourage it from returning.


This is a powerful trap. Keep away from children, pets and non-target animals. It is an offence to place the trap in a location which may endanger wild birds or other protected animals.
