Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap - 1 Trap

Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap - 1 Trap

Product Review (submitted on June 3, 2018):

This product has worked well for in-house use, but does not work well in my barn or house crawl space. The issue seems to be humidity. Though the barn is enclosed and has a concrete floor, the Zapper usually sizzles and starts blinking pretty soon afterward, especially when set at night. Similar results have been experienced in the crawl space, even though it has a vapor barrier on the ground. To further test the humidity theory, we armed the Zapper inside the house, and let it sit for several minutes. Then, we moved it out to the porch. The Zapper immediately zapped and started blinking. We repeated this evolution several times with the same results. We have cleaned the plate with a soft brush, and the Zapper will stay armed inside a climate-controlled room. However, that is not acceptable. I need a product that will let me eradicate the rodents BEFORE the get in my house.

Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! This trap is designed for indoor use only. When used in a barn, crawl space or any other location, weather and humidity can adversely affect the traps. For outdoor use, we recommend our snap traps or our new rat and mouse granular repellent.
