Rat Zapper® Ultra - 3 Pack
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.

Review RateGreat for chicken coop!
These are great. Mice in the chicken coop. Can't do poison or regular traps due to chickens. I do believe the mice are all gone out there now. The indicator light is nice as well. I have already told friends about this product. Have also brought 3 more.
Review Rateif you cycle the power on the rat traps after them being on for a day or two the red light blins indicating the batteries are weak and yet the trap did not kill any rats so I dont know why they would have discharged them so quickly
I have not caught 1 rat with any of the 3 electronic traps I bought. What frustrates me is that the batteries are constantly dying. Out of curiosity I turned the traps off and tried to turn them back on only to find that the red light would start to flash and continue to do so unless I replaced the batteries. I am thinking of returning them at this point as they are not doing what I was hoping they would.Response From Victor®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
This trap is designed to provide up to 60 kills per set of batteries. We apologize that this was not your experience and would like to learn more.

Review RateIncredibly effective product
The best rat killing system ever! I did not know that my garage had become a bed and breakfast for rodents. With the three Rat Zapper Ultras, I killed 12, that's right, 12 rats in 4 days. I have since made some necessary changes to manage the feeding of my dogs and sealing off the garage and have had NO additional visitors.
Review RateExcellent Product
This is our 2nd year using the Rat Traps. The first year we caught over 500 Norwegian rats, 7 blue rats, and mice too many to count. We ordered 3 new ones this year and are already pleased. I would really like to see you develop an outdoor trap (weatherproof). We do not live like pigs but are surrounded by 325 acres of CRP. The owls and hawks can't see the rats for the weeds and grass.
Review RateVery pleased
Had problems with Douglas Ground squirrels and wood rats who ate the wiring off two trucks in my shop. First night caught two of them. Next few days several mice. Trucks show no signs of new visits. They out smarted several nice and eat traps and even picked up blocks of decon to take to the nest in the trucks.
Review RateBest product on the market!!
The Rat Zapper Ultra is amazing!! I've tried everything, even so-called professionals to control my rat problem. Poison, traps, even shooting, which works but takes up a lot of your time. Everything I've read on the internet says rats won't touch anything new for 3 or 4 days. I put some sunflower seeds in my first rat zapper ultra and 20 minutes later, I had my first casualty. Every night, six dead rats! I own a feed mill and I can say this is the best product available today, bar none. I recommend it to all my customers!
Review RateA good product but you have to outthink the rats.
This is a good product. Users need to read up on rat behavior to get the best results. Rats are wary about changes in their surroundings. If you have been unsuccessful with a bait in a spring trap the same bait will likely not work with this trap and it might make them wary of the trap for other bait as well. Also avoid touching the trap with your bare hands. Rats can be wary of human scent. Good luck and be patient.
Review RateBest product for the need
This product is the final humane word on rat/mice disposal. Easy to check and empty with its lighting system.
Review RateRat Eliminated
Pesky rat was able to avoid or trip all of my conventional spring traps. Three days after placing a Rat Zapper I was rewarded with a red blinking light and big tail sticking out of the Zapper. No more rat. Used sunflower seeds to lure.
Review Rateworks on mice
Mice check in and don't leave!
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.
