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.

Review Ratewell worth the money
I need to know how to clean the black rat trap? We bought several to use at the feed lot to help with the rodent problem and they have sure done that but in the vet room and the saddle house is inside but really dusty. We have caught lots of mice and rats and I have recommended these traps to several others but now the lights are flashing red lights and even after we change the batteries still a red light. So they need to be cleaned. How and where do we need to clean the trap?Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are glad to hear that the traps are working well for you and appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback.
To clean the trap:
• Turn trap off and remove the batteries.
• Wipe metal plates with a damp cloth (water only, no soap or detergent, this will act as a deterrent to the rodents).
• Allow your trap to air dry and replace the batteries.

Review RateDisappointedDon't bother buying this product unless you only want to trap a mouse. Does not work with rats. Baited the unit exactly as instructed and the rats ate the peanut butter repeatedly without being electrocuted. Tried using peanut butter flavored poison in small pieces at back of unit, they removed that as well without being electrocuted.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations RepresentativeHello Debbie,

Review RateAMAZING,rats are gone!
I live in a mobile home and it seemed like the rats were coming in the roof getting into my cabinets. My mother bought me this trap since the standard ones weren't working. We have completely diminished the rat problem. Caught 14 rats within 2 weeks! Used crunchy peanut butter in the bottom left hole. A few times the sensor was triggered and nothing caught but those probably never touched the side where it electricutes if they were small. Absolutely worth every penny!
Review RateUsed to work, now non-functional
The trap worked fine for a couple years. Now it's dead (instead of the rats.) Fresh batteries properly installed and checked. Switch on; no light. A disappointment for a $40 rat trap!Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateFlashing red light
My light is flashing red. Can't find anything which says what this means.Response From Victor®Chelsea : Consumer Relations Representative
When the light flashes red on the Victor Electronic Rat Trap it is indicating a low battery. We recommend changing the batteries, cleaning the trap and restarting. A single green light after turning on the trap will indicate it is functioning. Please call us at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for further assistance.
Review RateWaste of money
Complete and total waste of money. Bought three traps a few months ago and have kept them baited at all times. We have had roof rats worse than ever, there is rat poop all around the traps, foot has been eaten out of them, and we have zero kills. Going back to the old school traps, my advice is to save your money instead of buying these.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Victor® has a long history of producing high-quality and reliable products. We regret to hear that what was received did not meet these expectations.
When baiting this trap, we recommend placing a small bit of peanut butter or similar high-protein spread on the back wall of the trap, keeping the bait off of the metal plates. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for additional assistance. This trap is covered by a one year replacement warranty.
Review RateGreat product
These were a great buy. I had a bit of a mouse problem & these are so much better than snap traps. Easier to set up & clean up, and I think these are much more humane.
Review RateDay 1!
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.
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.
