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 noticed a rat swimming in our pool while we in the pool. I noticed first and thought about whether to mention it to my wife, who was far enough away, but also in the pool. I did, and she, being the practical one, did not freak. I got out and fished the critter out with the pool net and flung she/he over the wall. He returned the next day and was swimming, but looked as if it was trying to figure out how to get out. This time I fished him out and put him shivering in a plastic tub and drove him to a shopping center miles away and let him loose. I decided to try a poison bait device. The poison was nibbled, but who knows if it worked? Shortly thereafter, in our pool area, I saw two rats simultaneously climb up two adjacent topiary rose bushes, playing. Well, these things can climb, so using chicken wire at our gates won't keep these determined climbing vermin out, I needed something serious and effective. I ordered the Victor Electronic Rat Traps bought 12 "C' batteries, loaded the traps with peanut butter ( the individual servings in a small plastic cup) and placed a small sponge moistened with water in front of the trap, and powered the devices on. On each of the past three days we have found a trap with the green light flashing, and the telltale tail sticking out of the front of the trap. It is nice to have a reliable, effective weapon to quickly deal with the annoyance of a rodent population which has decided they live here.Date published: 2016-08-24Rated 5 out of 5 by sasamom from awesome device I am very pleased with my purchase.

Would highly recommend .Date published: 2016-08-18Rated 5 out of 5 by BellaMolly from A Rat A Day! This product is awesome! I put it near my raised garden where rats eat our tomatoes. The first day I used peanut butter for bait and was not successful. The second day I put a sliced cherry tomato in the trap. Bam, one rat zapped. Since then it has been four days and I have zapped 5 rats! Every morning so far I have had to dump the trap. I have ordered three more traps! Very effective product!Date published: 2016-08-17Rated 5 out of 5 by miss ellie from mouse trap wonderful product, no messDate published: 2016-08-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Daisy from Quick shipping and quality products! The products i baught have really helped with my xurrent rat and mouse infestation. Thanks to Victor the pests are going away and staying away! I highly recommend this website and all the products especially the mint wall hangers and the sonic double speaker sound deters.Date published: 2016-08-12Rated 5 out of 5 by charlie1 from Works Great! We have a terrible infestation of rats, ate up our dog food, pooped all over the place and causing horror in our garage. Purchased 6 traps and bait with peanut butter and saltine crackers. We caught 1 the first night and 4 more a couple nights later, not sure how many are out there but we will keep using these traps they are a lifesaver!!!!Date published: 2016-08-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizabeth from Finally something that works! I bought 3 of these and they sell for over $50 a piece in the tractor and hardware stores so this was a great deal to buy 2 and get one free. They started working immediately last fall and it was a quick humane solution to a big problem. In less than 2 weeks it zapped a rat, 8 mice, 2 chipmunks and 3 moles. I had my basement cemented over and the entire problem is now gone for over 9 months. I was disgusted with the torture and pain inflicted by other methods of poison and steel traps. This is clean, quick, humane and effective. You don't have to touch the dead rodent and no smells or blood to clean up. I think it is genius and I am buying 3 more for inside my barn for winter.. You won't regret it - I just wished I had done sooner because before Victor Electronic Traps - each winter a rodent would die from those poison sticks and stink up the house for weeks...Date published: 2016-07-27
where do i find the measurements at?This trap measures approximately 4.75" H x 4" W x 8.5" D.Date published: 2016-07-25
Does this work for squirrels?This product is intended for mice and rats. It is not recommended for squirrels.Date published: 2016-07-06
Will the rat traps work with Nickel-metal Hydride rechargeable batteries? Their voltage is 1.2 Vdc.The use of rechargeable batteries is not recommended with this trap.Date published: 2016-07-05
I just purchase the electronic trap and its already blinking red. The batteries are brand new. What's wrong wit it?Must use ALKALINE, not General Puepose (GP), batteries. GP batteries cannot provide the level of surge amperage necessary to charge the plates fully, hence the light shows red for insufficient juice.Date published: 2016-05-02
I have six of these electronic traps: http://www.victorpest.com/victor-electronic-rat-trap-bm240promo What does the red flashing light mean?? Is it to change batteries???Yes, a red flashing light indicates that the batteries should be replaced.Date published: 2016-03-23
Clarification on price: Is the trap cost $90 for 3 (buy 2 and 1 free) or is it $90 each so 3 would cost approx $180? pls clarify as pricing does not seem to make sense. Is this because it's shipped from Canada?The traps are pre-bundled. The pricing shown for the Buy 2 Get 1 Free is for a total of 3 traps. Placing a quantity of 1 into the cart will be for a total of 3 traps.Date published: 2016-03-04
If the trap has a low battery will it still shock the rodent? Or will it not work at all?If the trap is giving the low battery light, we would recommend that the batteries be changed.Date published: 2016-03-05
Using dog food pellets at bait. All the bait disappears and no rats are zapped. Tried cleaning and new batteries. ???? Is there anyway to test the traps for proper operation?When the trap is turned on the light will flash once indicting it is working.

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.
