The Ultimate Flea Trap detects and controls indoor flea problems with a 93% catch rate as well as lures fleas out of upholstery and carpeting from up to 30ft away.
The Victor® Ultimate Flea Trap with Refills monitors and controls flea infestations. The patented design produces a high efficiency trap allowing you to eliminate your flea problem without spraying synthetic chemicals or having to put chemicals on your pet.
By simulating a warm-blooded host, the Victor Ultimate Flea Trap attracts fleas from where they live and hide. Lured in by the trap’s color, the heat and light from the trap's light bulb, fleas don’t stand a chance.
The non-poisonous and odorless flea killer trap enables safe placement around children and pets and comes fully assembled and ready to use. Save money and reuse your trap - refills for Ultimate Flea Traps are available on Saferbrand.com. Use the Ultimate Flea Trap flea killer year round as an early detection device.
Separate the top canopy of the trap from the bottom tray using thumb grips.
Carefully place the light socket into the hole in the top of the trap canopy.
Secure the socket in place with the treaded bulb protector provided. Do not over tighten.
Gently insert the provided bulb.
Insert the Glue Disc - grasp tab and remove release paper from the glue disc. Place the glue disc in the bottom of the trap.
Reassemble the trap by aligning the top canopy directly over the bottom tray and press down firmly.
For best results, make sure that you have removed the release paper from refill disc. Place trap on floor in an area where fleas are a problem, usually where your pet spends a considerable amount of time.
You may not be catching an abundant amount of fleas because:
The population of fleas will vary from week to week
You don't have a bad infestation at this time, but leave your flea trap on 24 hours a day as a preventative measure. Catching a new batch of fleas before they can reproduce is a very effective way to control flea problems.

Bought 1 trap to try. Bought 2 more. Put them in areas where cats spend most time. This is the best product we have used for indoors. Safe and effective. It was hard to believe how good it worked.

Oh My Gosh!! I want to thank you for selling the non toxic 'Victor' brand flea trap. It is AWESOME!! With fleas still in the house since August and me with two 18 year old dogs I have been fighting fleas with every non chemical product I could find. After setting them in every room they started trapping fleas right away. I have 40 fleas in one trap in just a few days! Thank you again for such a great Christmas gift!! Be Blessed in all of your business ventures!
They Really WorkAugust 02, 2013
These flea traps really work! I never had fleas before, but returned from a 3 week vacation and my house was infested with them. Bug bombing the house twice did not solve the problem. Vacuuming and mopping had no effect. These flea traps have killed dozens of fleas. They are far more effective than the home-made night light/soapy water method. They catch at least triple the number of fleas. I like them so much, I ordered more so I can keep 1 in every room. Far more cost effective and easier than using poisons that are not really good for your health.
CorrectionMay 23, 2013
My experience with the product has been the same as that of the majority of reviewers. However, I'd like to offer a correction to a reviewer's replacement light bulb specification, "(standard nightlight bulb, if anyone's wondering, 7 watts and 240 volts)" Apparently "Liz" in customer service missed this when she responded. The wattage is correct, but the voltage is 120, not 240 - in the USA anyway. In Europe in might well be 240 volts, but the wattage would be 3.5 in that case.

AMAZING!@June 21, 2012
I have been battling a flea problem for over 2 years!!!!!! nothing has helped and i mean NOTHING!!!! I decided to buy 2 of these traps and within 1 hour I saw at least 3 dead fleas on this thing. Its been about 3 weeks and a total of over 60 dead fleas!! I wish I would have found this sooner as I spent hundreds on things that never worked over the years.
Good Product, Helpful Customer ServiceNovember 16, 2011
I bought this flea trap about a week or two ago, and it works very well -- within a day I had caught a flea, and as time went one I saw more and more of them on the sticky paper. Unfortunately, the light on my trap burned out soon after. I read some product reviews before buying that reported a similar problem, so I wasn't too surprised. I called up customer service, and the person I spoke to was good enough to tell me what light bulbs I needed in order to replace the one that had burned out (standard nightlight bulb, if anyone's wondering, 7 watts and 240 volts). The flea trap works great, a customer service was very helpful.

Thank you for your kind words and we are sorry to hear the bulb burnt out so soon. We are pleased to hear that we were able to assist you in keeping your home free of fleas. One item to note is the replacement bulb for this trap is a 7 watt, 120 volt bulb. If you have questions or ever need assistance please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-855-5-VICTOR.
My family and I just received our traps yesterday and set them up in each room and within 5 min. saw results. By today, we weren't getting bitin by fleas at all. The only down fall is that the light is kinda bright at night but then again it makes a great nightlight also. The only thing bad I would say is that I have to order more for other rooms and order refills, no store in my area sales them but that's ok with me with the company offering free shipping with certain amounts of orders. Just ordered 3 more traps and plenty refills. I just wish I'd found out about this product before spending over $200 on other things that didn't make a dent in the flea problems. Whoever came up with this is a genious. My family thanks you and my pets thanks you for being organic.

Works as it says it does. It caught fleas after I had used a Raid flea kill spray.
Review Posted on HomeDepot.comAugust 08, 2011
We were having serious flea problems in our house for the first time ever. We spent hundreds of dollars on sprays for the house and yard, flea treatments for the cats and dog, as well as flea shampoos yet we continue to see lots of fleas on the animals and several on our children (ages 3 and 9 mths). Finally after searching online for flea prevention options and discussing the issue with our vet, we found this product. We received them in just a few days, began using them immediately and was able to catch dozens of fleas within hours. It works best during the dark of night since that is when the fleas tend to jump the most but it continues to work all day. After a couple of days, we didn't see any more fleas on either of the children or the animals. I am so glad we ordered this product. This is the best flea trap and we don't have to use any more chemicals.
The Ultimate Flea TrapJuly 25, 2011
My cat sleeps on my bed and I noticed a few flea bites on me. Not wanting to spray my bed with pesticide, I found this Victor trap. WOW!!!! In the first hour there were about 20 fleas on it. So I flipped around all the blankets and pillows and that night slept on the couch. WOW!!! OMG!!! I can't understand why I only had a few bites. The next morning it looked like someone had shaken a pepper shaker on it. 100's of fleas. Kitty got a new flea treatment and I got a lesson. I would recommend this product to anyone.

I had a flea infestation and attacked them [with] everything except nukes. They just kept coming! I bought these flea traps and placed them in strategic locations. Within days I declared victory! I replaced the pads & keep them in place ... just in case ... They have captured a few straggler fleas and a couple of spiders.

Trapped fleas within 24 hours. Bought one for my mom too.
This product works!July 19, 2011
Visiting pet caused the first flea problem we'd ever had. Our cats were miserable. Vacuuming rugs daily & treating cats with frontline was helping, but I wanted something to break the flea cycle quicker. The Victor Traps did the trick -- within hours the fleas were attracted to the light, stuck to the glue, and died. We now use the traps in our basement year round as a preventive measure. Added bonus that they catch other bugs as well. This product is well worth the money.

Bugs get stuck, works great. All kinds of bugs get stuck.
Catches everything!May 18, 2011
I have 6 cats and this caught fleas, ants, and 2 stink bugs. this is a great product and worked really quickly. simple solution without spraying anything harmful to my animals
Fleas DieDecember 01, 2010
I have been using the Victor Ultimate Flea Trap for several years now. Because of having my pets in the house I hate having to use poisons, this flea trap really works great. Still have to bomb the house once in awhile but not like I had to before I started using the flea traps. Raid used to have one but stopped making it so I could no longer buy the sticky pads so threw them away very happy I found the Victor flea trap. Fleas are getting fewer all of the time. It also gets rid of Crickets, spiders and other bugs. Great buy.
Really gets the bugs!September 25, 2010
This is a simple solution to a very irritating problem. I love to look at it and see how many and various bugs it has collected.
WARRANTS THE NAME ULTIMATEJuly 22, 2010
The best flea monitoring method for evidence of flea activity plus relieving heavily infested areas quickly and non-chemically! Also collects ants, spiders, roaches, fungus gnats etc. Best flea trap on the market. My customers love it! I love it to control fleas brought in by our customers and service techs at our store entrance.

Great Product!April 19, 2010
No matter how hard you try fleas can come into your house, so if they do, they hop over onto this trap and they are stuck. (other bugs too!) I use this along with an oral flea control pill I give my dog every month. With the 2 products togehter I control the flea population and have no chemicals in my house or on my dog that can be rubbed onto my carpets or furniture
Review Posted on HomeDepot.comDecember 26, 2009
I bought 2 of the flea traps and bought extra replacement discs. These really work and much better than the sprays. I feel a whole lot better that these things work and I don't have to worry about the fleas or flea infestations. Definitely recommend if you have pets. Even if they do not go outside fleas can get on your shoes, pant legs etc and then you can bring them in and before you know it you have a houseful. Item is a definite must-have item.
Review Posted on HomeDepot.comJune 22, 2009
I have been desperate to rid my home of the fleas my cats have brought in. I thought about other products, but as we have 2 birds and a Savannah Monitor in the house as well as 3 cats, poisons were out of the question.
I ordered the Victor traps with a little skepticism....but they really work!! I am so pleased and I completely recommend them to anyone with similar problems who are looking for non-chemical solutions. They work great.

RESPONSE FROM VICTOR PEST

Thank you for taking the time to submit an online review for the Victor® The Ultimate Flea Trap (model M230). We are sorry to learn about this experience. From your description it sounds like there is an issue with the adhesive of the glue pads with your trap. Also, the light bulb should not have burnt out this quickly. These results are not common and considered unacceptable by our standards. We would like to work with you to make this right.
Please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-7-ORGANIC (1-855-767-4264) so we can assist you regarding this matter. We look forward to hearing from you.
