Rat Zapper® Ultra
Special, Buy 2 Get 1 FREE Offer!
If you're looking to get rid of one rat or several large rats, the Rat Zapper® Ultra will deliver years of dependable service. This electronic rat trap is humane, safe, and easy to use. From set-up and use through cleaning and maintenance, each zap will be a snap thanks to clear step-by-step instructions. Once the target enters the Ultra, two plates deliver a total of 8,000 volts for two minutes, ensuring high kill rates. And the "no touch" feature makes disposal a truly hands-off experience.
How It Works
The Rat Zapper® Ultra is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when the rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a quick, humane 8,000 volt shock. Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes ensuring a high kill rate. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes red to indicate a kill. You can "zap" 60 rats with one set of 4 “D” batteries, which makes it an effective rat trap.
Easy to Use
How easy are they to use? Very--and that's just one reason why they're so popular--just insert batteries, bait, place, turn it on and relax. First, insert 4 “D” batteries into the battery compartment. Using the entrance, bait the trap along the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, dry pet food or nuts. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. Turn on the Rat Zapper® Ultra. A green light will blink once indicating the trap is working properly.
The hands-free, "no touch, no view" disposal reduces the "yuck" factor of a common mouse and rat trap. Clean-up is easy and it can be reused indefinitely--your friends and family will want to borrow it for safe, humane rat elimination.
Safe and Sanitary
The Rat Zapper® Ultra is safe for use anywhere in the home. Built with high-quality electronics, recycled plastics, and recycled packaging, the Rat Zapper® Ultra is both effective and environmentally friendly. It is ideal for attics, garages, basements and sheds. While it's always wise to use caution around children and pets, there is no blood, mess, chemicals, or poisons with the Rat Zapper® Ultra.

I was amazed that they worked right away. The wonderful thing is they keep on working and the ease and peace of mind is astounding. I would highly recommend them to anyone.Date published: 2017-01-06Rated 4 out of 5 by Raye from Heebie jeebies I bought this a few weeks ago after finding a dead rat in my spare closed off bathroom. I freaked out and got hysterical and went on a mission to find out if there were more. I ordered this device and baited it and was stoked to rid myself of this nightmare. Nothing happenned for weeks. I thought maybe there were no more but then i started finding evidence. I moved it all over my house and even contacted victor to see what I was doing wrong. 4 days ago I found the entrance. A hole in my wall behind my fridge. I placed the trap directly in front of the hole. I've caught 2 in 2 nights. Super easy disposal and I don't know what I would do without this device because I am absolutely disgusted by rats and I'd never be able to handle glue or snap. Don't even have to see the body but somehow I always look to see what I caught. Reset now and hoping to go 3 for 3. I'm even considering ordering more because I'm so mortified there's rats in my homeDate published: 2017-01-01Rated 1 out of 5 by Pmart from Disappointed I purchased 3 Rat Zappers several weeks ago after being delighted with the effectiveness of the Mouse Zapper. I have used peanut butter, peanuts in the shell, cranberries and cat food. Have had two false alerts - no rats. They will take the bait left outside the trap, inside the trap before the electric plate, but will not go all the way in. I have left the device off, as well, so they would take the bait w/o getting shocked, but still will no go all the way in. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Date published: 2016-12-30Rated 1 out of 5 by Donald from Waste of Money Never catches any rats! Have to replace batteries a lot.

what is the best way to clean the plate of hair & urine?Be sure to turn off the trap and remove the batteries before cleaning. We recommend using a towel with water and unscented dish soap to clean the plates. We also suggest soaking the base of the trap in a tub with 1" of water and unscented dish soap. For this method, be sure not to get the top of the trap wet where the electrical components are. Make sure the trap is completely dry before turning back on.Date published: 2016-11-11
Rat Zapper® Ultra Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where do I place the trap?
A: Place the trap along the wall where rodents primarily travel or where you have seen signs of rodent activity. Rats are wary critters and they’ll initially avoid anything new in their environment. Good news is we’re smarter than they are! It may take a few days or nights for the first rat to enter your trap but be patient!
Q: How do I bait the trap?/What should I use to bait the trap?
A: To bait the Rat Zapper®, 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 Rat Zapper® unless you place it in a plastic container, like a medium plastic bottle cap, and then slide it to the back of your Rat Zapper®. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)
Q: What type of batteries do I need?
A: The Rat Zapper® Ultra requires 4 “D” alkaline batteries which will provide approximately two years of stand-by power. Use high quality alkaline batteries to ensure the best results.
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.
