Rat Zapper® Classic - 3 Pack
Let's face it: killing rats probably isn't one of your favorite things to do. This is why the Rat Zapper® Classic was made to be as humane, safe, and easy to use as possible. If you want a top-quality solution that will deliver years of dependable service, buy the electronic Rat Zapper® Classic for quick control of your rodent problem.
Rat Zapper® offers Two Sizes to Fit Your Needs: Classic or Ultra
If you have average-sized rats and a need for less than 20 kills per set of batteries, get the Rat Zapper® Classic electronic rat trap, equipped with a large chamber size. However, if you are dealing with larger rats, consider buying the Rat Zapper® Ultra (sold separately), equipped with the largest chamber size available and suited to kill more than 20 rats per set of batteries.
The hands-free, "no touch, no view" disposal reduces the "yuck" factor of a common mouse and rat trap. Cleanup is easy and it can be reused indefinitely--your friends and family will want to borrow it for safe, humane rat elimination.
Safe and Sanitary
The Rat Zapper® Classic is perfect for use anywhere in the home. Built with high-quality electronics, recycled plastics, and recycled packaging, the Rat Zapper® Classic is both effective and environmentally friendly. It is ideal for attics, garages, basements and sheds. While it's always wise to use caution around children and pets, there is no blood, mess, chemicals, or poisons with the Rat Zapper® Classic.
You can "zap" 20 rats with one set of 4 “AA” batteries, which makes it a truly effective rat trap.
How It Works
The Rat Zapper® Classic is equipped with smart-circuit technology that senses when the rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a quick, humane 8,000 volt shock. Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes ensuring a high kill rate. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes red to indicate a kill.
Easy to Use
How easy are they to use? Very--and that's just one reason why they're so popular. Just insert batteries, bait, place, turn it on and relax.
1. Insert 4 “AA” batteries into the battery compartment.
2. Using the entrance, bait the trap along the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, dry pet food or nuts.
3. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel.
4. Turn on the Rat Zapper® Classic. A red light will blink once indicating the trap is working properly.

Review RateRat zapper
The rat zapper works great. In a matter of a couple of weeks we have seriously decreased both pack rat and mouse populations
Since you don't delivery to Puerto Rico, I had my cousin to Order for me in Orlando Florida she was coming to Puerto Rico on Vacation and she got me the electronic traps.... It work great, in my mom storage room i caught a few already. I had a problem that the rat or mouse used to go to the back of the trap and eat part of the bait. What I did was place a peace of wood at the back of the trap and Bingo it got caught. Which you could delivery to P.R. because I had some friend that I let then borrowed and they like it. For two year and still working I give it a 5 Star.......
Review Rategood value for dollars spent
I have only used 2 of the 3 and seem to be working just fine...easy catch and easier cleanup. they must be kept dry
Review RateAwesome product! It works!
These are AWESOME! I set the black traps in conjunction and caught 1, but I think they know what the regular snap traps looks like and avoided them. I set up 2 black traps in the corner and 1 Zapper with a piece of miniature shredded wheat in the back so it does not rest on the sensor, and I walked away. A few days later 1 saw the red light flashing and got excited, wondering if the trap actually caught something. I looked inside and YES it caught a mouse! I turned the switch off and put a bag over the opening and dumped the mouse and food, then put a potato chip since I ran out of cereal. That worked too! In 2 other rooms I also had only the Zapper in use. I purchased multiple Zappers to place in strategic points based on where I saw mouse dropping or actually saw them running. They apparently didn't go into one room, but the Zapper did get one in the room at the back! I turned the switch off and dumped the body and food into a black bag and put a potato chip and turned the switch back on and walked away. In total, I have caught 2 with one Zapper and 2 with another Zapper so far. This is over a period of a few weeks. This Zapper product is the best! I think mice are not familiar with this type of trap so they get caught. I will be purchasing more soon for use at my brother's house. Hopefully the Zapper will do the same job at his house.
Review RateWorks well if used the right way!
Please pass this on to Bill Kelliher... it seems that users can't answer other users comments. I have had one for 5 + years and am ordering an other. At first it didn't work and at the time the how to use instructions were different and of course I didn't read the instructions but called int to say that it wasn't any good..... Here's how I was told to use the trap and it works very well: 1- leave the zapper OFF and put peanuts on the floor close to the entrance 2-wait till the pea nuts have been eaten 3-repeat step 2 4-still with zapper off place peanuts half way into the trap and again wait till all peanuts are gone 5-turn zapper ON and place peanuts on the kill plate and VOILA a dead rat. NOTE: Rats are very intelligent and if bait is placed at the back on the first try, the rat will go in for the food but very slowly and will cense the electricity with it's whiskers and back off. By doing the above steps it will build the rat's confidence and it will charge right in to eat. AND BY BY RAT.
I bought 9 of these rat traps and only caught 1 rat. the traps are always blinking and guess what NO MOUSE!! food is gone lights blinking like something is in there...fresh batteries every time. waste of moneyResponse From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and appreciate the time taken to share this feedback. When baiting the trap, we recommend using a toothpick amount of peanut butter on the back wall of the trap or one or two pieces of dried dog food at the back of the trap. If bait is scattered inside the trap, this may cause a false trigger.
To reset the trap, we recommend cleaning the metal plates with a hydrogen peroxide solution. Please turn the trap off and remove the batteries before cleaning. Once the trap has dried, we recommend re-baiting (following the instructions above) and placing the trap against the wall in an area where rats have been seen.
We hope this information was helpful. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any questions or for additional assistance.
Review RateThis is the rat trap of choice
I have the blue trap and it has last 5 years plus. It gets the rats, although you have to be patient. I think it must be more humane than the snapping traps which sometimes don't make a clean kill.
Review RateLoving my rat zappers
I love these new rat zappers they are so easy to use.Snap traps I could never set.These you just put batteries in a cracker with peanut butter and push the on button and zap you have a mouse in no time.Recommended to many friends who live in country.
Review RateIneffective and not worth the money
These traps are ineffective for the rats in my area. The go in and set off the trap but are rarely killed. I have done everything possible to make sure they work, but they don'tResponse From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. How much bait is being used? We recommend baiting with a toothpick amount of peanut butter on the back wall. Anything more than that, and the rodent may be able to access the bait without going all the way into the back of the trap. The device is activated when the rodent steps on two plates at the same time. If any bait is touching the metal plates, it could cause the unit to falsely activate or the rat may not receive the full shock that is needed to kill them.

Rat Zapper® Classic Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where do I place the trap?
A: Place the trap along the wall where rodents primarily travel or where you have seen signs of rodent activity. Rats are wary critters and they’ll initially avoid anything new in their environment. Good news is we’re smarter than they are! It may take a few days or nights for the first rat to enter your trap, but be patient!
Q: How do I bait the trap?/What should I use to bait the trap?
A: To bait the Rat Zapper®, first make sure the trap is turned off. Place the bait along or on the back wall of the trap. Be sure to use gloves or a tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap. We’ve carefully researched dry pet food and found it an excellent lure. Other dried baits (nuts, dehydrated fruit, etc.) can also work well. Goopy Bait Note: Please don’t place moist or goopy bait in your Rat Zapper® unless you place it in a plastic container, like a medium plastic bottle cap, and then slide it to the back of your Rat Zapper®. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)
Q: How do I clean the trap?
A: Through repeat use and baiting, dust and debris can settle on the metal plates inside the trap, so we recommend that you clean your trap between each use. To clean the trap:
- Turn the unit to the off position and remove the batteries
- Use a hydrogen peroxide topical solution (available at most drug stores) and an old toothbrush to clean the inside of the chamber. Use a wire brush as needed to remove any corrosion, being careful not to be too vigorous. This could accidentally remove all of the protective zinc plating
- Allow the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap to air dry completely
- Replace the batteries and turn the unit back on
Q: What may affect the effectiveness of an electronic trap?
A: To ensure that your trap works when it is supposed to, keep the metal plates clean so the trap won’t trigger at the wrong time.
- Don’t over-bait, as excess food could drop onto the plates and activate the trap, after which any rodent may safely enter to remove the food.
- Make sure that the plates are clear of any debris, especially urine or hair from a recent kill that may interfere with the unit’s proper function. Remember, both plates need to be clean so that the electric circuit is made complete by the rodent stepping on both.
Q:What does it mean when the light blinks red?
A: When you turn on the trap, the red light will appear one time and fade away. This confirms the trap is on and working properly and the light turns off to save battery. The red light will also blink to indicate a successful kill; however, in order to conserve battery, it only flashes about every 7 seconds.
