No, this is designed for indoor use only.
When the unit is flashing a red light, it is indicating that the plates have activated for a kill. If there is no rodent inside the trap, it may have falsely triggered due to dirt or debris on the metal plates.
We recommend turning the trap off, removing the batteries, and removing any bait. Then, take a damp cloth and wipe off the metal plates inside the trap. Once the unit has air dried, insert the batteries and turn the trap back on. A red light should flash once to indicate that it is functioning properly.
When baiting it is essential to use a small amount such as one or two pieces of dry dog or cat food at the rear of the trap or a small pea-sized amount of peanut butter scraped on the inside of the back wall.
On start up, the light should blink once and then turn off after 2 seconds. This indicates the trap is active. If this is not happening, please call us at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867).
