Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - 8-Pack
The Victor® Electronic Rat Trap uses a high-voltage shock to kill rats quickly and humanely. The trap kills one rat per setting, and can kill up to 50 rats per set of 4 "C" batteries (not included). 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. Once inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and jolting the rat with a 7,000 volt shock.

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. 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.
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. 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 on the trap on.
The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is safe for use anywhere indoors, or anywhere it’s not exposed to the elements. The trap doesn’t use poisons or chemicals, but as with any electronic device, use with caution around children and pets.
- Remove the battery cover. Insert 4 "C" batteries.
- Replace the battery cover.
- 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.
- 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.
- Turn on the trap – a green light will blink once showing the trap is working properly.
- A blinking green light will indicate a kill. Dispose of the dead rodent, bait, reset and place for continued rodent control.

Not only does this work, the chickens pull the rat out and eat it. Serious recycling here. LOLDate published: 2016-04-17Rated 4 out of 5 by Harlan from Rat Traps I have bought seven over the last three years.Work greatDate published: 2016-04-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Randy from It took awhile, but it finally worked perfectly When I got home with the trap, I put a little bit of peanut butter through one of the holes on the back wall of the unit, inserted the batteries, turned the trap on, and I placed it in the attic. I knew I had at least one rodent up there. After about 3 weeks of checking and finding nothing trapped, (Peanut butter was still there and didn't appear to have been touched) I decided to place two square cheeses outside of the entrance of the trap and one square cheese inside next to the back wall of the trap. Worked perfectly!!!Date published: 2016-04-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Phinney from Product was as described Really works, Pack Rats a big problem in Desert and they appear to be all dead as of today!Date published: 2016-03-28Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveP from Great product I used this product and from the first night it was down it was doing its job killing quickly with no messDate published: 2016-03-17Rated 4 out of 5 by Alex from Very good, but could be better. I put three of these in service and scores two rats and three mice in two days. One failed to work the first time because the battery compartment is poorly designed such that the batteries don't always make good contact.Date published: 2016-03-13Rated 5 out of 5 by MouseHouse from Solution to our problem!!! These puppies work! Big rat, small mouse, no problem! See that flashing light but never see the mouse. Perfect for the lighthearted. After about 5 to 10 killed per seasonal activity, we see no more for months. They really do kill up to 50 before needing a battery change. I was so impressed I bought the 3 pack deal and gave one as a gift to my neighbor who confided in having the same problem. She has had great success. I'd sell these things door to door, I'm so impressed. We really had a serious issue, after months of many different unsuccessful attempts, I found this company. I have tried a couple products but this is the cure and only one I would highly recommend. But it now!Date published: 2016-02-29
I just purchase the electronic trap and its already blinking red. The batteries are brand new. What's wrong wit it?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.Date published: 2016-05-13
I have six of these electronic traps: http://www.victorpest.com/victor-electronic-rat-trap-bm240promo What does the red flashing light mean?? Is it to change batteries???Yes, a red flashing light indicates that the batteries should be replaced.Date published: 2016-05-01
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?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.Date published: 2016-03-04
If the trap has a low battery will it still shock the rodent? Or will it not work at all?If the trap is giving the low battery light, we would recommend that the batteries be changed.Date published: 2016-03-05

I bought the electronic rat trap from H Depot. I setup as indicated in instructions and turn on. The green light comes on then goes off. About 30 sections later I hear a short humming noise and goes off. Should the bussing go off as mine do or stay on?When the trap is turned on, the indicator light will flash once and the trap will hum or buzz for several seconds. The noise will not be continuous.Date published: 2016-04-12
I have caught a large rodent and when it was zapped it caused it to bleed. How do I clean the blood out of the trap?To clean this trap, we recommend turning the trap off and removing the batteries.

Once the trap has air dried fully, the trap can be baited, the batteries replaced and the trap turned back on.Date published: 2016-02-15

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 and not exposed to the elements. If this trap is used outside, the unit could potentially short out due to weather conditions, such as rain.
