Easy to Use

The Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is extremely easy to use. Simply bait, place, turn on and empty. The trap is equipped with advanced smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters the trap.

Humane Kill

Once inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and jolting the rat with a 7,000 volt shock. Since rats can restart their hearts after an electric shock, this trap applies a continuous shock for two minutes to ensure a complete, humane kill.

Indicator Light

After the rat is dispatched, the trap’s indicator light flashes green for up to 24 hours to indicate a kill. If the trap has low batteries, the light will flash red.

No-see, No-touch Experience

To dispose of the rat, just dump the rodent into the trash without ever having to see or touch it. The trap can then be reset and reused, or discarded if you prefer. To reset, add more bait, then place and turn the trap on. The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is acceptable for use anywhere indoors, or anywhere it’s not exposed to the elements. The trap doesn’t use poisons or chemicals, it’s safe to use around children and pets when used as directed.

The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is easy to set and use. Here’s How:

  1. Remove the battery cover. Insert 4 "C" batteries.
  2. Replace the battery cover.
  3. Bait the trap through the hole in the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, bacon, dry pet food, nuts, etc. Be sure to use a Q-tip, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.
  4. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. The trap should be placed lengthwise against the wall with the entrance hole nearest the wall.
  5. Turn on the trap – a green light will blink once showing the trap is working properly.
  6. A blinking green light will indicate a kill. Dispose of the dead rodent, bait, reset and place for continued rodent control.

Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - 8 Traps is rated 4.604395604395604 out of 5 by 182.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product - highly recommended e had trouble catching a mouse - though we had put down dozens of glue traps. The mouse seemed to know to avoid the glue traps. We were desperate. We purchased the Victor Electronic Rat Trap and within a day or so the mouse was caught! It never even made it as far as the bait. Its very simple - and one caught you just toss the mouse into the garbage can. I highly recommend this product. Since I purchased the one trap - I have gone ahead and ordered about a dozen of these ( have a multi-family house) to keep whenever a mouse wanders into the house. I also purchased the small mouse size one and that works great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I purchased 1 af these and was skeptical that it would work. Within a week we had a rat in the trap. I then purchased 6 more and put them in different rooms. I forgot about them until my dog alerted me to the one in the kitchen and sure enough we had another rat and also one in the utility room. I now check them every morning. So far we have caught at least 10 rats, and I do not have to worry about my dog getting caught in a trap. I hats dealing with mice/rats and with this trap I do t have to touch anything near the rat. Thanks for making a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well! We noticed a rat swimming in our pool while we in the pool. I noticed first and thought about whether to mention it to my wife, who was far enough away, but also in the pool. I did, and she, being the practical one, did not freak. I got out and fished the critter out with the pool net and flung she/he over the wall. He returned the next day and was swimming, but looked as if it was trying to figure out how to get out. This time I fished him out and put him shivering in a plastic tub and drove him to a shopping center miles away and let him loose. I decided to try a poison bait device. The poison was nibbled, but who knows if it worked? Shortly thereafter, in our pool area, I saw two rats simultaneously climb up two adjacent topiary rose bushes, playing. Well, these things can climb, so using chicken wire at our gates won't keep these determined climbing vermin out, I needed something serious and effective. I ordered the Victor Electronic Rat Traps bought 12 "C' batteries, loaded the traps with peanut butter ( the individual servings in a small plastic cup) and placed a small sponge moistened with water in front of the trap, and powered the devices on. On each of the past three days we have found a trap with the green light flashing, and the telltale tail sticking out of the front of the trap. It is nice to have a reliable, effective weapon to quickly deal with the annoyance of a rodent population which has decided they live here.

Q&A

I turn the trap on and the green light indicator goes on then after a little bit the green light on the  trap will blink rapidly. It's been working great until today. I caught lots of mice. I cleaned the inside with a paper towel thinking it was shorting 

Asked by: Pinegrila
A green light will flash on the trap to indicate that there has been a kill. If no rodent is present inside the trap, then the trap may have falsely triggered and needs additional cleaning. We recommend gently scrubbing the metal plates on the bottom of the trap with a warm, damp cloth. Once the plates have been cleaned, allow it to air dry. It can then be baited and set. Be sure that no bait is touching the metal plates on the floor of the trap.

I just purchase the electronic trap and its already blinking red. The batteries are brand new. What's wrong wit it?

Asked by: Nique215
Must use ALKALINE, not General Puepose (GP), batteries.  GP batteries cannot provide the level of surge amperage necessary to charge the plates fully, hence the light shows red for insufficient juice.

Clarification on price:  Is the trap cost $90 for 3 (buy 2 and 1 free) or is it $90 each so 3 would cost approx $180?  pls clarify as pricing does not seem to make sense. Is this because it's shipped from Canada?

Asked by: confusion
The traps are pre-bundled. The pricing shown for the Buy 2 Get 1 Free is for a total of 3 traps. Placing a quantity of 1 into the cart will be for a total of 3 traps.

If the trap has a low battery will it still shock the rodent? Or will it not work at all? 

Asked by: MrMH
If the trap is giving the low battery light, we would recommend that the batteries be changed.

FAQs

Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What position should the switch be in to turn it on?

A: For the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap (model M240), the on position is a dash “-“ and the off position is an “O”

Q: Is the buzzing/clicking normal?

A: The buzzing and slight clicking sound with the Victor® Electronic Rat Trap is normal during the start-up of the trap. When you first turn the trap on, the green light will blink momentarily and then you will hear the buzzing or a slight clicking sound indicating that you trap is working properly and starting up.

Q: How do I bait it?/What should I use to bait it?

A: To bait the Electronic Rat Trap, 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 Electronic Rat Trap. If you plan on using goopy bait, like peanut butter, place it on the back wall with a Q-tip. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)

Q: How do I clean the trap?

A: Through repeat use and baiting, dust and debris can settle on the metal plates inside the trap, so we recommend that you clean your trap between each use. To clean the trap:

  • Turn the power switch off and remove the batteries
  • Wipe the metal plates with a damp cloth (use water or unscented dish detergent only).
  • Allow the trap to air dry completely.
  • Replace the batteries and turn the unit back on for repeated use.

Q: Can it be used outdoors?

A: The Electronic Rat Trap is recommended for indoor use only. This trap was designed and manufactured to be used indoors. If this trap is used outside, the unit could potentially short out due to weather conditions, such as rain.

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.
