Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - 8-Pack
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.

Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - 8-Traps

The Victor® Electronic Rat Trap uses a high-voltage shock to kill rats quickly and humanely. The trap kills one rat per setting, and can kill up to 50 rats per set of 4 "C" batteries (not included).

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. 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 on the trap on.

The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is safe for use anywhere indoors, or anywhere it’s not exposed to the elements. The trap doesn’t use poisons or chemicals, but as with any electronic device, use with caution around children and pets.

Electronic Rat Trap Video
  1. Remove the battery cover. Insert 4 "C" batteries.
  2. Replace the battery cover.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Turn on the trap – a green light will blink once showing the trap is working properly.
  6. A blinking green light will indicate a kill. Dispose of the dead rodent, bait, reset and place for continued rodent control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quickest results ever! We bought this unit last year as were were showing all of the classic symptoms of a rodent home infiltration. I had set other traps,but nothing was happening. I decided to give this electronic rat trap a try. three nights in a row we trapped a mouse. After we found the areas the were getting through, we sealed them off and had not seen a mouse afterwards, so we put the trap way. A year later my daughter spotted a rodent going into the laundry room as she turned on the light. We found a hole were the rodent had excavated from the crawl space around the water pipe. We sealed the hole with insulation foam and set the electronic trap again still using the same batteries from last year. The next morning the green light was flashing. I couldn't believe my eyes. This rat took up the entire area of this device and still stuck out, it was huge. I thought my daughter was exaggerating when she told us about it , but she was spot on. I bet that thing was about 2 pounds and about a foot long. I would have taken a picture but I was really grossed out by this thing and just wanted it gone. We are still resolving the root problem, but I was glad we had this device to trap it. That was really nasty.Thanks Victor, just wish there had been enough voltage,(or amperage) to vaporize that thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swift and Effective I put the trap out only a few minutes after seeing a mouse scurry by on the floor. In less than an hour the trap was flashing indicating it had worked. Worked again within another couple of hours. Problem solved and worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cleanest way to deal with Rats. I knew I had rats in the yard, but I never knew I had rats in the house, then l I saw an apple on my counter with teeth marks, frustrated because I spent at least a $100 on bags of RatX for 3 months trying to kill them outside and in the attic. (I felt it was important to use a product that would not hurt other animals or my pets.) Frustrated I purchased the Victor Rat Trap and within 38 hours I caught 5 rats with it. It was amazing. Easy and clean, I was able to walk to the can and drop it in and reset the button. No mess and fuss at all, you don't touch the dead animal at all. My friends were so excited about my product discovery that they all bought them for their homes. I purchased three more for "the white elephant gifts" for Christmas. I rarely write a review, but this product is so successful that I feel a need to let people know. Victor Electronic Rat Trap is a smart purchase. Well worth the price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Bought this rat trap on November 10 - it is now November 24 and I have "fed" my rat five times… Yes it was baited and he got in and ate the peanut butter and waddled back out - all this thing is doing is making him fat. Don't waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REALLY WORKS!!! We live in a rural desert area and are overrun with pack rats, mice and voles. After trying everything else to control the problem, I received a random advertisement for Victor's rat trap. I purchased 3 traps and was amazed at the immediate results. Since my original purchase, I received the offer to buy two, get one free' and I took advantage of the deal and now own a total of six traps. The investment has paid for itself time and again. Not only is it humane, but extremely effective! I encourage anyone who has a similar problem with rodents to try these traps. You won't regret it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Being Patient, kinda ! My victor electronic trap has been sitting for a week now. Before puttin it in, saw plenty of rat activity,I.e., Rat turds, Trash removed from container and chewed to pieces, etc. Followed direction to a T. It's like the little buggers know it. I think all the reviews got my expectations up. Using peanut butter/ dog food in plastic bottle cap. Trying to be patient, but it's hard. Want my first K.I.A.

I used the trap and when I checked it had moved and green lite was blinking the bait was gone but no dead rat, there was some blood on 2nd plate & back where bait stuck but some on 3rd plate, cleaned trap rat got some of bait 2nd time but now avoids.

Asked by: Dhsartis45
Rats have the amazing ability of being able to restart their hearts which is why this trap will deliver a shock for two minutes. If the rat was not fully inside the trap when the shock began, they may have been able to back out. We would recommend baiting the trap for a few days but not setting it. This will allow the rat to see the trap as a food source. Once the bait is being taken again, the trap can be set. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.

Light flashing green caused by roach, will the trap automatically reset after a time or must I remove the roach and then reset?

Asked by: Bubba
This trap should be reset after a catch. To reset it, turn the trap off and back on again.

I am a little fearful of changing the batteries, as there is no light flashing in - or o position. Is the - off? When I open the lid to change the batteries is there any chance of electrical shock to me me?

Asked by: Mauree
On the trap the "O" is the off and the "-" is on. The shock is delivered when two of the metal plates are bridged inside of the trap. Care should be taken to not touch the plates when the trap is in the on position.

y Victor Electronic Trap worked well for catching about 7 mice over three weeks. Now it flashes a yellow LED periodically. I have cleaned and dried the plates after each catch, no peanut butter bait touches the bottom plate. It buzes/clicks after start.

What happens if my two year old sticks her finger in the trap?

Asked by: Lyssa
This trap should be used in a location that is not accessible to children or pets.

The green light blinks on and off constantly, even though there is nothing in the trap.   When you make new ones, why not have it say "OFF" instead of just "O" since "O" could mean either on OR off and after not using it for a  while, I forgot which!

Asked by: Rats are icky
The "O" is off and the "-" is on. We apologize for any inconvenience.

After a kill, and the batteries are still fine, I cannot get the green light to come on when I turn it on. This has happened with 2 it still working if no green light flash?

Asked by: jfe3
If the trap's indicator light is not flashing once when the trap is turned on, we recommend ensuring that the batteries are making good contact with the battery compartment contacts. A fully charged set of batteries should also be tried.

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 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.
