Victor® Electronic Rat Trap
Special, Buy 2 Get 1 FREE Offer!
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.

Had one and was so impressed with the ease of use and how completely effective safe and non toxic it is. A tiny bit of peanut butter and they show up walk in and zap it's over! Win Win...end your infestation of mice or rats!!!Date published: 2016-12-04Rated 2 out of 5 by Le Alan from Worked once and quit I bought this to use in my travel trailer. I saw signs of a rat in my garage. I move the trap to the garage and it got the biggest rat I have ever seen. After cleaning up the trap I could never get the led to turn green. Replaced batteries but no go. Any ideas?Date published: 2016-12-03Rated 5 out of 5 by mouser from Worked like a charm We bought these traps about a month ago and have had nothing but success. We live in a very old building that had become a haven for mice and roof rats. Within two weeks of use, we had eliminated 13 rodents, and we have not seen/heard any sign of live rodents (droppings, scurrying in the attic, etc.) either. We baited the traps with peanut butter and were going to wait a few days to turn them on. However, the mice were clearly in them the first night, so the traps went live on night two. They worked quickly and efficiently. The only downside is that each trap requires 4 C batteries, so expect to pay another $15-$20 in batteries after you purchase the traps. However, it was WELL worth it, in my opinion!Date published: 2016-12-01Rated 4 out of 5 by RoniD from Like the features Quick shipping.

Instant kill fast effective and Worth the price 2 plus 1 free,i have them in my rabbit barn green house and chicken house first night all 3 did their Job 1 weasel down WOWDate published: 2016-11-26Rated 5 out of 5 by relmiss from Got Them right away! I was skeptical about the claims, however, within two days, I had trapped three pack rats. I am a believer.Date published: 2016-11-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Ycnan from It really works!! I live in the suburbs with a creek just down the street. Rats have been an issue for years. I used the snap traps before and hated them. Messy and if not caught in the trap correctly the rat sometimes were still alive and suffering. I refuse to use poison as I do not want cats, dogs, scavenger birds, etc. to get poisoned by contact with the poisoned rats. The Rat Zapper is easy, a quick kill with no worries about other animals and birds, and no mess at all. I bait them with peanut butter on half a cracker (the cracker keeps the Zapper clean) and check them every morning. Just dump the rat in the garbage. I have 2. I got 6 rats in 4 days and nothing since. Rats usually run in cycles here. It could be next week or 6 months before their friends and family come back but the Zappers are out there waiting.Date published: 2016-11-10Rated 4 out of 5 by Desperate from Work if entered. The traps do work but I am having trouble tempting the rats into the trap. I have only caught one so far. Have tried sunflower seeds, peanut butter and cat food. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.Date published: 2016-11-09
The green light blinks but nothing inside the trap. What would cause this? It happens often.We recommend cleaning the trap to ensure dirt or debris is not causing a false kill. To clean the trap, first turn it off and remove the batteries. The metal plates can then be wiped off with a damp cloth. Once it has air dried fully, the trap can be baited, the batteries reinserted and the trap turned back on.Date published: 2016-11-13
Does this kill big rats? We have chickens and we have some big rats.This trap is designed to kill both rats and mice, but is recommended for indoor use only. For large sized rats, we recommend the RAT ZAPPER® ULTRA (RZU001).Date published: 2016-11-11
I turn on the unit see the green light flash once for a few seconds. I never hear the hum or clicking. Does this mean my unit is bad? Will it catch the rat since the green light indicates it's working?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 unit is not designed to hum/click but it may be heard on startup.Date published: 2016-11-20
When I turn on the trap the green light comes on for a second then goes off with a pop. It sounds like a breaker going off.

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.
