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 4.4 out of 5 by 1831.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works!! I live in the suburbs with a creek just down the street. Rats have been an issue for years. I used the snap traps before and hated them. Messy and if not caught in the trap correctly the rat sometimes were still alive and suffering. I refuse to use poison as I do not want cats, dogs, scavenger birds, etc. to get poisoned by contact with the poisoned rats. The Rat Zapper is easy, a quick kill with no worries about other animals and birds, and no mess at all. I bait them with peanut butter on half a cracker (the cracker keeps the Zapper clean) and check them every morning. Just dump the rat in the garbage. I have 2. I got 6 rats in 4 days and nothing since. Rats usually run in cycles here. It could be next week or 6 months before their friends and family come back but the Zappers are out there waiting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work if entered. The traps do work but I am having trouble tempting the rats into the trap. I have only caught one so far. Have tried sunflower seeds, peanut butter and cat food. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for rats and mice We have been using these traps outside under a covered porch with great success. Best bait we have found is dry dog food kibbles - no mess and apparently very attractive to mice and rats. With these traps, you can just dump the dead mouse/rat into a bag , no need to pry it out of a small compartment like on the mouse traps- well worth the cost.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So easy to use I set out 3 in my garage for mice. I caught over 20 in a week without baiting the traps. I set them up along the walls. I've been checking them daily for 2 weeks and have no mice. I baited them with peanut butter last week, but still no mce. I will continue to use them just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Rat Trap meets our "no touch them" goal We were experiencing problems with rats in our fruit trees and mice in our garage. We tried the regular spring loaded traps to no avail. We decided to try electrocution style for the ease of use and we did not want to have to be involved with the disposal of the rats. This method worked for our first rat on the second night of usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly effective & simple to use I purchased the Victor Electronic Rat Trap about 3 years ago after being fed up with rats ruining items in my outdoor storage shed at my townhome backing to a creek. Not to mention losing my peace of mind in being able to play outside with my son in a "clean" environment. The amateur here made quite a mess the first time using the Victor Electronic Trap by not reading the instructions well and placing the trap on top of a cardboard box (DON'T DO IT!). Luckily the Victor Electronic Rat Trap is easy to clean and the rats guaranteed dead. No moving parts! I simply wiped it down without getting it wet as to not ruin the components. A cotton swab with a little bit of peanut butter to smear on the metal end of the unit and success was mine, catching at least 3 more rats! When I moved to my new home last December, the Victor Electronic Trap was back at in action, catching 2 tiny mice in the garage the first 2 weeks of living in the home. Just caught another medium-sized one this past week after noticing pellets in the garage. As a woman I can say that once you get over the notion of handling a bag with a dead rat/mice, you come to the conclusion that he's better there than chewing on your stuff and breeding in your garage. I now leave the trap in a corner of my garage on the floor constantly. Anytime I notice something, I replenish the peanut butter and keep an eye out. When I purchased mine there wasn't a notification option as with the new Victor @lert - sounds like a very cool advancement!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Greatest Rat Trap! We bought 2 traps and got one free. Two worked and one didn't. However, the two that worked caught a total of 17 rats from medium to very large. These were caught outside in the front and back yard. We only have one that is still working and we're ready to buy some more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works Electronic trap really works. Killed the mice in my pantry in 4 hours. Bought a 3 pack and one did not work out of the box. Victor replaced at not cost and quickly.

Q&A

The green light blinks but nothing inside the trap. What would cause this?  It happens often. 

Asked by: Marejv
We recommend cleaning the trap to ensure dirt or debris is not causing a false kill. To clean the trap, first turn it off and remove the batteries. The metal plates can then be wiped off with a damp cloth. Once it has air dried fully, the trap can be baited, the batteries reinserted and the trap turned back on.

Does this kill big rats? We have chickens and we have some big rats.

Asked by: anita
This trap is designed to kill both rats and mice, but is recommended for indoor use only. For large sized rats, we recommend the RAT ZAPPER® ULTRA (RZU001).

I turn on the unit see the green light flash once for a few seconds.   I never hear the hum or clicking.  Does this mean my unit is bad?  Will it catch the rat since the green light indicates it's working? 

Asked by: WantMyLifeBack
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 unit is not designed to hum/click but it may be heard on startup.

When I turn on the trap the green light comes on for a second then goes off with a pop. It sounds like a breaker going off. Is it set or is there a issue? 

Asked by: Rollo
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.

Why would a new electronic rat trap not trigger when a mouse was touching all three plates - front feet, rear feet, tail? I herded the mouse into the trap and watched.

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.
