How to Use: Electronic Rat Trap (M241)

How to Use

Have you recently purchased a Victor® Electronic Rat Trap? In our helpful How-to section, we’ll walk you through basic trap setup, baiting, and disposal so you can have your new trap up and running in no time.

BAITING

Be sure that the trap is powered OFF and batteries are removed before baiting the trap. Rodents prefer foods that are high in protein and fat. Try using peanut butter, hazelnut spread, chocolate and meats such as bacon or beef jerky. Be careful not to use too much. Rodents have a very strong sense of smell, so only a small amount of bait is needed to attract them to the trap. Open the bait door, which can be found on the back side of the trap. Use a cotton swab, toothpick, tweezers or similar tool to place bait so that your scent is not transferred to the trap.

DISPOSAL - HOW DO I DISPOSE OF A CAUGHT MOUSE?

Turn the unit OFF. Remove the batteries. Properly discard rodent. Clean and bait the trap after each use for most effective results. Insert batteries and push the power button forward to turn the unit back on. A green light will appear once and the unit will buzz to let you know the trap is armed and ready for use. A continuous indicator light is not used so that battery life can be preserved.
