Known for the most innovative rodent control products on the market, Victor® presents the Electronic Rat Trap – the only rat trap with a patented 3-plate design to prevent escapes.
Easy to use, the trap is simply baited, placed against the wall and turned on. The trap uses advanced smart circuit technology to sense when a rodent enters the units. Once the rodent is inside, the system delivers a humane, high-voltage shock to effectively kill the rat or mouse in seconds.
A green indicator light illuminates when a rat has been exterminated and is ready for removal. Rodents can then be dumped directly into the trash for no-touch, no-view mouse control.
Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts after an electrical shock, the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap applies shock for 2 minutes ensuring high kill rates. Additionally, the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is the only trap that automatically resets after an irregular escape.
Safe for use anywhere at your business, the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is ideal for Offices, Attics, Garages, Basements and Kitchens.
A lifetime investment, the Electronic Rat Trap is easy to clean and can be reused indefinitely. For effective rat control, one set of 4 ‘C’ batteries will eliminate up to 50 rats, and a red light indicates when batteries need replacing.

As usual, I had rat problem in the attic and I tried number of rat traps. In the attic and around the house. Some of the traps killed other wildlife also. I did not want to use any toxins because I grow organic garden and toxins affects the planet more than we think. We have pets, toxins would be deadly for them. Rats killed by toxins would end up wildlife food chain. Really bad. I was using all kinds of traps with very poor result. Big rats would simply get out of the traps laughing at you or they are so smart, they would look at the trap and laugh at them.
Reluctantly I bought Victor electronic rat trap. I opened the box and one look I said to my family that this looks like a joke. Small unit, 4 "C" batteries, what is that going to the rat. Well, I put the peanut butter in the trap as recommended. For first two days I did not turn the unit on. I wanted the rats to get used to a new structure in their environment. I put some peanut in the trap (do not do that if the unit is on) as well as around the trap. There was all kinds of party going on for first two days when the unit was off. I would find all peanuts and peanut butter disappeared in the morning. After two days I only used peanut butter as recommended and turned the unit on at night. What a surprise!!! I found a huge dead rat in the trap with the indicator on. I could not believe, it was totally a dead rat. The attic sound stopped next day. I knew I THE rat. Just out of curiosity, I put peanut butter in the trap, but I did not turned the unit on this time. I did not think there will be any activity after killing THE rat. Well, next day my peanut butter had disappeared. So I turned the unit on and got another dead rat. Another huge one. It has been about two months and I am up to 11 dead rats. I never thought I had such a bad rat problem. With most other traps you catch a rat and others will get spooked by the device. Catching rats multiply times with the same device never happens. Talking about Victor electric rat trap is a different story. The only recommendation I have with Victor's unit is that chancy batteries after 3 may be 4 kills. If you want a sure result, go for 3 kills.

Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
What position should the switch be in to turn it on?
For the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap (model M240), the on position is a dash “-“ and the off position is an “O”.
Is the buzzing/clicking normal?
The buzzing and slight clicking sound with the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is normal during the start-up of the trap. When you first turn the trap on, the green light will blink momentarily and then you will hear the buzzing or a slight clicking sound indicating that you trap is working properly and starting up.
How do I bait it?/What should I use to bait it?
To bait the Electronic Rat Trap, 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 Electronic Rat Trap. If you plan on using goopy bait, like peanut butter, place it on the back wall with a Q-tip. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)
How do I clean the trap?
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 power switch off and remove the batteries • Wipe the metal plates with a damp cloth (use water or unscented dish detergent only). • Allow the trap to air dry completely. • Replace the batteries and turn the unit back on for repeated use.
Can it be used outdoors?
The Electronic Rat Trap is recommended for indoor use only. This trap was designed and manufactured to be used indoors and not exposed to the elements. If this trap is used outside, the unit could potentially short out due to weather conditions, such as rain.
