Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - 3 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 (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 4,000 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 RateNot so well
Bought one got one rat stopped working.Bought two more.One doesn’t work rat keeps eating bait.Second one got rat don’t know if it still works.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. When the traps are first turned on, does the green light blink once and then turn off? If so, the trap is working correctly. We recommend cleaning the traps. To do so, turn the power switch off and remove the batteries. Wipe the metal plates with a damp cloth (using 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.

Review RateThe best product I've found for rat and mice control EVER!
10 days and going strong. Heard some scratching and gnawing like some big critter was trying to get in to home. It was keeping my wife up at night. Bought three traps and on the first night every one zapped several mice. The next night I put peanut butter in a bottle cap and caught two good sized rats. Had no idea they existed in the area. Caught two more and cant be happier with the electronic rat/mice trap.
Review RateWorks really well for mice
These work really well for our mouse problem. My only complaint it that if any small things (cricket or rock) get in it the light starts to blink, like it has a mouse.

Review RateGreat investment
Got one within few hours.......great investment
Review RateWork great! Use the right bait.
I bought three and placed two up in my hayloft and one in the barn aisle. It took a couple of days until I figured out the best bait: peanut butter & chicken feed. Have since caught 11 rats!! All three traps have been successful. Will continue to use them to keep the population low if not entirely gone. I also have 2 barn cats & a rat snake but the traps are the way to go.
Review RateDon't waste your money like I did.
It should be called a rat feeder. It has never killed even 1 rat. I give it a 1 because there is no 0. Don't waste your money like I did.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review Rate1 worked but didn't last, 3 didn't work at all.
I have bought a total of 4 traps at Home Depot. I bought my first one and it worked perfectly. Unfortunately it didn't last long despite changing batteries. It stopped working after 4-6 weeks. I bought another one that never worked. I would put peanut butter and it was gone but no rat inside the trap so threw it away. I recently decided to give them another try and bought 2. The one would turn on but didn't catch a rat ( peanut butter again gone) and the second back up one didn't even turn on. In summary the first one worked for a few weeks and the other 3 didn't work at all and were defective from the moment I bought them. And I placed mine in a dry covered area(garage). They are not out in the open nor do they get wet. I give 1 out of five for the one that did work for a few weeks.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are very sorry to hear about this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.

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.
