Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap

Eliminate your rodent problem quickly and effectively with the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap. From set-up and use through cleaning and maintenance, each zap will be a snap thanks to the easy-to-use design. This humane trap kills rodents using a high-voltage shock and since rats are able to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes to ensure higher kill rates. To get started, simply apply a high-protein bait in the provided bait cup, place the trap in a location with high rodent activity and turn it on.

High-Voltage Shock Humanely Kills Rodents

High-Voltage Shock Humanely Kills Rodents

The Rat Zapper® Classic is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, it steps on the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a continuous high-voltage shock for 2 minutes to effectively eliminate rat invader. This trap is capable of eliminating up to 20 rats per set of fully charged batteries (4 “AA”).

LED Light Alerts

With the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap, simplifying your pest control routine is a breeze. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes green to indicate a kill. You’ll know when it’s time to empty your trap without having to check manually.

No-Touch Cleanup

No-Touch Cleanup

With the Rat Zapper® Classic, cleanup is effortless! Unlike standard rat traps, you don’t have to touch or look at dead rodents. The rat is contained within the kill chamber, which hides it from sight, while the indicator light lets you know when it’s time to empty. After a kill, just tip the trap to discard the dead rodent into the trash without having to touch it.

Step 1: Add Bait
Step 2: Insert Batteries
Step 3: Place the Trap
Step 4: Turn Trap On

How to Set the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap

For your convenience, the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap is very easy to use. Get your trap setup by following these four simple steps:

  1. Add Bait - Apply a small amount of high-protein bait, such as peanut butter, to the back wall of the trap away from the metal plates using a Q-tip or other tool to avoid transferring your scent.
  2. Insert Batteries - Remove the battery cover. Insert 4 “AA” batteries into the battery compartment before replacing the cover.
  3. Place the Trap - Place the trap on a flat surface against a wall where you have seen signs of rodent activity. The trap should be placed lengthwise with the entrance nearest to the wall.
  4. Turn On - Activate by flipping the switch to the “ON” position. A green light will blink once to indicate the trap is functioning properly.

This Rat Zapper works for ...

Jul 5, 2024
This Rat Zapper works for a few times until the metal plate at the very back of the trap becomes gross from the food bate and dead rodent debris. The plate is inside at the very back of the trap and it is impossible to reach to clean it. If the back end of the trap were removable, it would be possible to clean the buildup off the metal plate and continue to attract rodents. We bought two Rat Zappers hoping to catch many rodents and keep using it before we found this out and would not buy them again.

Thank you for this feedback. We're sorry to hear that this happened with the trap. We do not recommend putting bait directly on the metal plates. A long handled scrub brush or toothbrush can be used to clean the traps. They have a one year replacement policy. Reach out to us via the Contact Us page with any questions.

I’m a long time buyer of Victor rat zappers. And generally a fan. I recently bought 8 new ones from a local hardware store. After about 8 kills on four units, only two remained working. This is unacceptable, hasn’t even been two months.

Again, a few good catches, then no longer-this was a replacement for same issue? Do, very much, appreciate the generous customer service with the replacement. Have had many of these zappers over the years, and figured wore them out after MANY catches. May up the game regarding model we use?

Old model was better

Old model with the red blinking light was significantly better - new model only blinks green intermittently upon kill (12-15 seconds). It seems to be another case of cutting cost. Sometimes it doesn't''t blink at all....

I run a trap line of 8 Victor Rat Zappers...in the barn, leather shop, tool shop, under the spa and behind some plants. They are the greatest! Wouldn't use anything else. You don't have to touch the dead animal. Turn off the Zapper, shake out the dead animal, make sure there is bait in it and turn it on and it is ready to go.

I have purchased 15 of the Rat Zappers over the years and moves. We always live out in the country. I love them. Easy to use, they work and I don't have to touch the rodent. I am considering buying a few more. We just moved and I left some for the new owners. I have 5 right now. One must check them every day and empty them out other wise the rodent decays and the causes extra work.

Hear good things, hope never to use it

I purchased the product on the recommendation of a veterinarian, who loves rats but could no longer live with their domestic legions. I hope never to use the product, but am comforted that, if my blocking efforts fail and the gnawing invasions persist, I have your trap.

Q&A

My brand new zapper, when the switch is flipped on, the light flashes green and immediately buzzes. Why would a completely new unit do this?
Question by: Grant on Oct 28, 2021, 4:45 PM
If the trap is flashing green when turned on, the trap is armed and ready. It will often buzz as well.
