The trap kills one rat per setting, and can kill up to 50 rats per set of 4 "C" batteries (not included). Disposal is easy, too – offering a no-touch, no-see experience.
Easy to Use
The Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is extremely easy to use. Simply bait, place, turn on and empty. The trap is equipped with advanced smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters the trap.
Once inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and jolting the rat with a 7,000 volt shock. Since rats can restart their hearts after an electric shock, this trap applies a continuous shock for two minutes to ensure a complete, humane kill.
After the rat is dispatched, the trap’s indicator light flashes green for up to 24 hours to indicate a kill. If the trap has low batteries, the light will flash red.
No-see, No-touch Experience
To dispose of the rat, just dump the rodent into the trash without ever having to see or touch it. The trap can then be reset and reused, or discarded if you prefer. To reset, add more bait, then place and turn the trap on. The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is acceptable for use anywhere indoors, or anywhere it’s not exposed to the elements. The trap doesn’t use poisons or chemicals, it’s safe to use around children and pets when used as directed.
The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is easy to set and use. Here’s How:
- Remove the battery cover. Insert 4 "C" batteries.
- Replace the battery cover.
- Bait the trap through the hole in the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, bacon, dry pet food, nuts, etc. Be sure to use a Q-tip, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.
- Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The trap should be placed lengthwise against the wall with the entrance hole nearest the wall.
- Turn on the trap – a green light will blink once showing the trap is working properly.
- A blinking green light will indicate a kill. Dispose of the dead rodent, bait, reset and place for continued rodent control.

We bought 2 traps and got one free. Two worked and one didn't. However, the two that worked caught a total of 17 rats from medium to very large. These were caught outside in the front and back yard. We only have one that is still working and we're ready to buy some more.Date published: 2016-10-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Ratman2016 from It really works Electronic trap really works. Killed the mice in my pantry in 4 hours. Bought a 3 pack and one did not work out of the box. Victor replaced at not cost and quickly.Date published: 2016-10-13Rated 5 out of 5 by LiaNYC from Fantastic Product - highly recommended e had trouble catching a mouse - though we had put down dozens of glue traps. The mouse seemed to know to avoid the glue traps. We were desperate. We purchased the Victor Electronic Rat Trap and within a day or so the mouse was caught! It never even made it as far as the bait. Its very simple - and one caught you just toss the mouse into the garbage can. I highly recommend this product. Since I purchased the one trap - I have gone ahead and ordered about a dozen of these ( have a multi-family house) to keep whenever a mouse wanders into the house. I also purchased the small mouse size one and that works great too.Date published: 2016-09-21Rated 5 out of 5 by KerriP from Does the job!! Bought the three pack and am so happy I did.

Why does the green light keep blinking, it has no rodent in it?Dirt or debris in the trap may be causing the trap to indicate a catch. We recommend cleaning the trap by turning it off and removing the batteries. The metal plates can then be wiped with a damp cloth and allowed to air dry fully. Once dry, the trap can be baited with a pea sized amount of peanut butter on the back wall of the trap. The batteries can then be re-inserted and the trap turned back on.Date published: 2016-10-18
At first the green light would blink every ~10 seconds, but after my first kill no longer. The light turns on but no blinking. I turned it off and on but now the light isn't turning on at all. New device and new batteries. Is there a test?When the trap is turned on, the green light will flash once. After the rat is killed, the green light flashes for up to 24 hours to notify you of the catch.Date published: 2016-10-12
Is this trap effective for chipmunks?This trap is intended for mice and rats only and is not recommended for chipmunks.Date published: 2016-10-11
I bought this "rat" trap but on the directions its says only for mice???Been set for fourdays...nothingThis trap can be used for both mice and rats. If the mice have not yet found the trap, we recommend moving the trap to a new location. For best results, it should be placed along a wall where rodent activity has been detected.Date published: 2016-10-11

My trap is humming and the green light comes on the goes off. I set the trap with the bait, the next time we checked the trap the rodent ate the bait, but was not present in the trap. What do I need to do or is it broken?If the green light flashes once and the trap makes a short buzzing sound immediately after, this would indicate that the trap is working. When baiting, we recommend using a small dab of peanut butter, around the size of a pea, on the back wall of the trap.

I have pyrchased 2 of these rat traps and they work well but for a little while. Is there any maintenance to it? Or cleaning inside?After the trap has achieved a kill, we recommend cleaning off the metal plates inside the trap. To do so, turn off the trap and remove the batteries. With a damp cloth, wipe off the metal plates on the floor of the trap. After the trap has air dried, it can be baited and reset. Keep in mind that no bait should touch the metal plates on the floor of the trap.Date published: 2016-09-27
I turn the trap on and the green light indicator goes on then after a little bit the green light on the trap will blink rapidly. It's been working great until today. I caught lots of mice. I cleaned the inside with a paper towel thinking it was shortingA green light will flash on the trap to indicate that there has been a kill. If no rodent is present inside the trap, then the trap may have falsely triggered and needs additional cleaning. We recommend gently scrubbing the metal plates on the bottom of the trap with a warm, damp cloth. Once the plates have been cleaned, allow it to air dry. It can then be baited and set. Be sure that no bait is touching the metal plates on the floor of the trap.Date published: 2016-09-08
Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What position should the switch be in to turn it on?
A: For the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap (model M240), the on position is a dash “-“ and the off position is an “O”
Q: Is the buzzing/clicking normal?
A: 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.
Q: How do I bait it?/What should I use to bait it?
A: 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.)
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 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.
Q: Can it be used outdoors?
A: The Electronic Rat Trap is recommended for indoor use only. This trap was designed and manufactured to be used indoors. If this trap is used outside, the unit could potentially short out due to weather conditions, such as rain.
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 green? Red?
A: When you turn on the trap, the green light will stay on for 2 seconds to confirm the trap is on. Then the light is supposed to go off. The green light will also blink to indicate a successful kill; however, in order to conserve battery, it only flashes about every 7 seconds. A blinking red light indicates that the batteries are running low and will need to be replaced.
