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.

Most Recent Customer Reviews
I purchased 3 of these units because we knew we had more than one rat running around the house in different area. We have tried several different types of bait and placed the units in areas where there have been rat droppings and evidence of chewing. It has been several weeks and still have not caught any rats in these units. I really had high hopes for these items but am very disappointed. I tried other Victor rat traps and since we had no success with them we decided to try the Rat Zapper but have had no luck with these either.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. What type of bait is being used? We recommend baiting the trap with a toothpick amount of peanut butter on the back wall. Sometimes, placing a trail of bait up to the trap will help entice the rodents into the trap.

Review RateGreat Produce that works great for mice and roof rats
The Zapper did the trick! I had a little nest of roof rats foraging around. I tried several methods (glue, snaptraps) that worked moderately well, but putting some Cheerios and dry dog food in the front (as a tease) and in the back behind the charge plate did the trick. Caught numerous rats of all sizes, with no muss or fuss. Best part is Rodent Extraction. Just tip it downward, dead rodent slips into a bag, ...add a little food, flip the switch back to "ready" (great flashing green light for a few seconds) and DONE!. The Zapper also has a great feature of the warning light flashing red when it's been tripped, so you can see it in the dark, from a distance! Set up is easy, just drop in 4 "D" batteries and flip the switch. Yes, it's that simple. To think I almost spent thousands on a professional exterminator. Thanks Zapper!
Initially I am excited. No more setting snap traps. all I have to do is bait and wait. Easy clean up. 1 day in got the first rat. 3rd day got the 2nd rat. After clearing the trap and re baiting and re setting the green light is blinking. I didn't know how old the first set of batteries was so I bought brand new ones. I set the trap, green light comes on we are all good. Checked the next morning and the red light is blinking. Hmmm, no Rat and no Bait. So I re baited and tried to reset the trap and this time no green light. got another set of batteries just to make sure but still nothing. Opened up the controls to make sure nothing came loose or shorted out. All looked good and still nothing. Lost $59.....Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateVarmints be gone!
I am overjoyed with this product! Disgusted by rats and concerned about the surrounding wildlife, I could not use poison. I hate setting snap traps that could realistically remove a finger at worst and require removing a nasty, squished varmint at best. I bought a few Rat Zappers and they work amazing! Simply flip the switch and make sure dry bait is at the back. We have caught 16 rats in a couple of weeks ranging in size from breeders to babies. I really appreciate the safe, NO TOUCH removal by simply dumping the dead rascal and flipping the switch with new bait. Do wear gloves to mask the human scent. Works great! Gave one as a gift to a delighted and needy recipient! I'm sleeping MUCH better now!
Review RateWorks, but battery cost is expensive. Impossible to clean. No customer support.
The Rat Zapper with 4 D cells works. BE PREPARED TO ADD A NEW SET OF D-CELLS every couple of months whether you catch anything or not...That's about $6.00 a set or $36 a year in batteries. I have 3 traps so THAT IS $108 A YEAR ! Also, it is constructed so that it is almost impossible to clean the decomposed dead rat tissue from on and around the bottom electrode. The company has never responded to any information emails. Critters crawling over and on the trap have more than once stepped on the rocker power switch and turned it off and subsequently retrieved the bait (It is easy to know that you have set it properly, because the bright green LED flashes for about 2 seconds when it is turned to on.)Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are very sorry to learn about this, Bill, and appreciate the feedback.

Review RateZap? More like zip.
I had high hopes for this, but it's been a failure so far. I've tried several kinds of bait and several different locations, but have yet to catch a rat. I know they're there, but so far they are keeping their distance. Also, when I ordered the unit, I understood it was to be packaged with a rat tale indicator, but it was not in the box when it finally arrived. I will try it for a few more days, but without any results, I will be asking for a refund.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWorks well - some concern about battery life
Trap works as advertised. I caught 1 mouse and 1 small rat, then after cleaning thoroughly it would only flash red. (I had a new set of Duracell in it) Came to this site and saw that this was often low batteries. Changed the batteries and it works again. Wondering if it could be because I had been away and the mouse was maybe in there a couple of weeks and drained the batteries. I'll see how long the next set last. Other than that I am very happy with it. The rat dies humanely and there is no poisoned carcass to poison other animals.
Review RateAbsolutely Tremendous Trap
Works like a charm, much more effective than glue or poison traps. I recommend using peanut butter, candy (Reese's minis), or Slim Jims as bait. Had a rat problem on my project and couldn't keep rats out of the building, but the Rat Zappers have dwindled the population significantly. Much more effective than glue traps and less hassle than poison traps since you don't have to worry about them running off and dying in a wall.
Review RateThe Rat Zapper is a great tool for any home, rural or suburb.
The Rat Zapper is pretty amazing. Easy to load and pretty much takes care of anything that walks into it. I has zapped mice, rats and gophers so far. Just load, turn in on and leave it in a established trail. I live in the country, on 6 acres and mice and other rodents are a real problem. In addition the mice and rats are easily disposed of without having to actually touch them. A great product.
Review RateWinning the battle
I bought three and all have caught/killed a rodent. I'll be cleaning them this week and hope to up their averages.
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.
