Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - 8-Traps
The Victor® Electronic Rat Trap uses a high-voltage shock to kill rats quickly and humanely. It is very easy to use; simply bait, place, turn on and empty. 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.

I have fruit trees in my yard which has attracted roof rats. I needed something that wasn't difficult to set and made it easy for me to dispose of the rat if I managed to catch one. I set the trap, went to work, and lo and behold, when I came home there was a dead rat in the trap! The traps work and are easy to use.Date published: 2017-01-12Rated 5 out of 5 by MouseHunter17 from A Must Have I bought this product about a month ago and was amazed at my results. I was astonished at the amount of mice that were being caught in these traps. If you don't think you have mice, wait until you put these trap out. I just reordered Another setDate published: 2017-01-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Amber from Awesome Product!!!!! First I tried the neck snapper traps but the mice/rats licked the peanut butter clean off of them but didn't set off the trap! Then I tried the sticky traps but felt they were inhumane and when I caught a big pregnant rat and had to kill it with a rock due to it almost getting off the sticky trap in the trash can I decided to spend the money on this product and within the first few days I eliminated my problem, caught several of the little critters and all I had to do was dump them in the trash and not have to worry about them getting off the sticky traps. So I am EXTREMELY satisfied with this product! Well worth the money!!Date published: 2017-01-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Dfdukes from Awesome Traps! These did their job 3 times in 36 hours when no other methods did.Date published: 2017-01-03Rated 1 out of 5 by Needs a cat from They turn on now I have to admit, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get the batteries in; that is a VERY tight fit. Put the spring side in first, you will need to pull the plastic tabs out of the way. Do they work? No clue, I think the rodents don't trust metal; I haven't nailed one yet.Date published: 2016-12-31Rated 5 out of 5 by babyblu76 from Best Traps I have ever bought. I had bought one of these traps years ago and it seemed to work ok. So when I moved into a new place that was infested with mice I pulled out my old one and caught 10 mice the first 2 weeks. Bought 3 more from victor and have been cleaning house ever since. So far the tally is at 35 in a little more than a month. The snap traps have always been hit or miss with me but these are the best traps I have ever used.Date published: 2016-12-23Rated 5 out of 5 by Darth from Great Item So much better than usual traps, especially if your are squeamish!Date published: 2016-12-19

I have a trap that successfully killed several rats. Now when I turn it on, the green light comes on then goes off, as it is supposed to, but about 30-45 seconds later the trap starts buzzing and continues to buzz until I turn it off. Replace??We recommend cleaning the plates on this trap. In order to clean, first turn off the trap and remove the batteries. Then, wipe down the plates with a damp cloth. After completely air dried, replace the batteries, re-bait, and restart the trap. If the problem persists, please call us at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance.Date published: 2016-12-20
I keep feeding a rat. I have baited 4 times only to find an empty trap bait gone and no kill. I have used this product before and got numerous kills but the two new units don't seem to be workingWe recommend using peanut butter as bait and place it on the back wall of the trap only. If bait comes in contact with the plates, the unit will not function correctly. Please contact us at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for further troubleshooting.Date published: 2016-12-19
I have one trap that buzzes each time I switch it on, and one that does not buzz when I switch it on. I've caught rats in the buzzing trap, never in the non-buzzing one(but green light blinks once when I turn it on). Is there a way to test the charge?We recommend cleaning the plates on this trap. In order to clean, first turn off the trap and remove the batteries. Then, wipe down the plates with a damp cloth. After completely air dried, replace the batteries, re-bait, and restart the trap.

Why is the green light flashing on the top indicating there is a mouse.....yet bait is still there and no mouse. I LOVE this trap....have caught several since the weather turned colder.We recommend baiting the trap against the back perforated wall with a small smear of peanut butter. It is important that no bait touches the metal plates. Please call our Consumer Care Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) to troubleshoot the trap.Date published: 2016-12-13
Do you have a product that can be used outside? I live in Oregon when it rains constantly and my rat problem is around the outside of the house. Also it is safe around a small dog?This trap is not for outdoor use. The only products we recommend for outdoor use are snap traps. These traps should be placed out of reach from children and pets.Date published: 2016-12-13
my trap didn't catch any rat. I still have rats problem in the house sometimes i wake in the morning and i find the green light blinking indicating there is a catch but there is no rats inside. i cleaned it and replaced the batteries.The trap should be baited with a small amount of peanut butter placed on the back wall of the trap, no bait should be placed on the metal plates. It is important to clean the plates with a damp cloth with batteries removed.

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.
