Review RateBeef up the bait door
This is a great trap and I have zapped 3 rats so far. However, one issue I have with this trap is the the little bait door is not very secure. I had a Rat figure out it could open the door. Maybe it was too stupid to crawl around and enter as intended, but this weekend I found the bait door had been snapped open. I think this part of the trap needs to be redesigned to stay shut more firmly.Response From Victor®Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateGreat product
4 weeks into using it, 13 kills, 11 mice and 2 big (big) rats. Much better than poison baits which can subsequently kill other animals in the ecosystem. Even if it were to fail from here, I'd buy again based on it eliminating problematic rodents. Great for garages, sheds, etc. Easy to get rid of carcass, clean, rebait. One of the two traps fell out of my hands but 5 minutes later I had it back together and operating 100%.
Review RateGood Product
Very effective product. Works Fantastic!
Review RateUnresponsive app
Already spend an hour trying to create an account on their app. Says it’s created but could not login. No email for forget password. Only the welcome email + confirm registration came through. Cannot use the app or the trap until I can get the trap to the app. Waste of time and moneyResponse From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Excellent product to use
Review RateDid not kill rat lounging in trap
Staring into the eyes of a very live rat in my trap. TRAP DID NOT KILL IT. Have tested the device: power lights and Wifi light go on and everything, but no more zap. I knew it was working because it killed a couple of small mice the other day. In case it was the batteries I bought and installed a fresh pair just now. So my guess is that it has blown a fuse. Since there is no access to the innards. I now have a fancy brick. I would like a refund please.Response From Victor®Kristen : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateYet to deliver on claim - jury is still out
No rats yet but a couple of mice. Heed the instructions: "For **indoor** use only". Trap has a number of problems if used outdoors: 1] Raccoons are much stronger than rats and will happily abscond with the entire trap. 2] Raccoons are much more inquisitive than rats, and the bait trap door is child's play for them. 3] Outdoors is messy enough that trap is easily triggered on false alarms. I'm actually looking in the trap right now - there's nothing in it, yet it is in full-on continuous "Zap" mode. A twig for just a bit of leaf might be enough to set it off. 4] So far, despite mice and false alarms, it has yet to send a single notice to my phone.Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. We are sorry to hear that curious raccoons were playing with your trap! These traps are recommended for indoor use only. If the trap has not sent any alerts, it could be that it was out of range.

Works fantastic -- I had two other Victor Electronic traps that worked great to but being notified is really great. The only thing I can think of that would be more satisfying is a camera -- put in an SD slot that I could put a card in so the trap can record the vermin getting zapped by 1.21 Gigawatts and being sent back to the future. (kidding on this :-)) These are the best!
Review RateExcellent product
I bought two traps and my kill rate shows 11 rats killed. For some reason, two did not register. I can't believe how well these worked. When you get a notification that a rat has been killed, it is so satisfying. I immediately empty the trap and it is ready to kill again. The rats I have killed so far have been HUGE! I'm not sure I would be able to kill them using a snap trap or a sticky trap. These traps kill quickly and surely. It's nice to know the rat is dead and not just injured or still alive and looking at you right in the eye while it is stuck to a stickly trap. This is so much more humane, more efficient and if you have rodent issues like I do, cost effective.
Victor® Smart-Kill™ Electronic Rat Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: HOW DO I CONNECT THE TRAP TO MY WI-FI?
A: Go to Wi-Fi settings on your mobile device. Select the trap, which is VICTOR following by 15 alphanumeric digits. Press “CONNECT”, then press the back button. Select the Wi-Fi network to connect the trap to. Enter the network password for the Wi-Fi network, then press the red “CONNECT” button. It may take up to 1 minute to connect. A notification appears when the trap successfully connects.
Q: HOW DO I BAIT THE TRAP?
- Be sure that the trap is powered OFF and batteries are removed before baiting the trap.
- Rodents prefer foods that are high in protein and fat. Try using peanut butter, hazelnut spread, chocolate and meats such as bacon or beef jerky. Be careful not to use too much. Rodents have a very strong sense of smell, so only a small amount of bait is needed to attract them to the trap.
- Open the bait door, which can be found on the back side of the trap.
- Use a cotton swab, toothpick, tweezers or similar tool to place bait so that your scent is not transferred to the trap.
Q: WHERE SHOULD I PLACE THE TRAP?
A: 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 rodent entrance nearest to the wall.
Q: CAN THE TRAP BE USED OUTDOORS?
A: No, an electronic trap cannot be used outdoors. It uses batteries and electronic components that cannot be exposed to the elements. Placing it outdoors will interfere with the functionality of the trap, causing it not to work.
Q: HOW DO I EMPTY THE TRAP?
- Press the power button to turn the unit OFF.
- Remove the batteries.
- Properly discard rodent. Clean and bait the trap after each use for most effective results.
- Insert batteries and press the power button to turn the unit back on. The trap will automatically reconnect to Wi-Fi.
Q: HOW DO I CLEAN THE TRAP?
- Press the power button to turn the trap OFF, then remove the batteries. Open the trap by holding the base of the trap with your left hand and sliding the top backwards with your right hand about one inch. Pull the top away from the base.
- The kill chamber is now ready for cleaning. Use a hydrogen peroxide topical solution (available at most drug stores) and an old toothbrush to clean the inside of the chamber. Use a wire brush as needed to remove any corrosion, being careful not to be too vigorous. This could accidentally remove all of the protective zinc plating.
- Thoroughly dry the interior and exterior of the kill chamber prior to trap reassembly.
- To reassemble trap, hold the base of the trap with your left hand and slide the top into place by pushing forward with your right hand to reconnect the pieces. The trap is ready for use.
Q: WHAT TYPE OF BATTERIES DOES THE TRAP USE?
A: The trap requires 4 “C” batteries. Be sure to use new, fully charged batteries for best results.
Q: WHAT DO THE APP NOTIFICATIONS MEAN?
A: Please visit our support section for more information on app notifications.Learn More »
