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 in the home, the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is ideal for Attics, Garages, Basements, Sheds, 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.

I have roof rats in my garage. I have a lot of storage, so they have lots of places to nest and hide. First I put out poison bait, and then realized they would go back to their nests, die, rot, and stink....leaving me to clean up a nasty mess. I saw the Victor Electronic rat trap and was intrigued. Read the other reviews...saw a few negatives and that worried me. Despite that, I went ahead and bought one...followed the advise I read from some of the reviews....and WOW! In no time at all, I was a successful big game hunter! The first rat I caught was huge! This trap is freaking AWESOME! A small chunk of dog food, and a dab of peanut butter is what I used. This trap works...period! End of conversation! Easy to empty, and use over and over again.
"Harold" is history! March 14, 2013
After unwittingly & unwillingly sharing my home with a large rat (we named Harold) for three uncomfortable nights, it was time to do something special. I'd already spent almost $20 on all kinds of 'snap' traps - but Harold was either too fast, too clever, or too cunning to be caught by any of them. After reading the reviews, I thought I gotta try this.
Set up was easy: peanut butter, a damp paper towel in front, and a quiet few hours away from the house. My arrival home was greeted by the flashing green light.. and Harold's long tail sticking out of his final resting place. It was almost too good to be true & the best 40 bucks I've spent in a long time. RIP Harold!!
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 unless you place it in a plastic container, like a medium plastic bottle cap, and then slide it to the back of your Electronic Rat Trap. (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 • Get a shallow disposable tray into which your Electronic Rat Trap can fit • Fill the tray with approximately one-inch of warm water and a squirt of unscented dish detergent • Immerse the lower portion only of your Electronic Rat Trap in the pan for one hour • Use a small, disposable, soft brush to gently clean around the metal plates • Gently flush out the bottom of the Electronic Rat Trap with fresh water (no water in the upper compartment, please!) • Allow the Electronic Rat Trap to air dry completely (no air compressors!) • Replace the batteries and you’re back in biz!
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.
