Victor® Electronic Rat Trap - 3 Traps
The Victor® Electronic Rat Trap uses a high-voltage shock to kill rats quickly and humanely. It is very easy to use; simply bait, place, turn on and empty. The trap kills one rat per setting, and can kill up to 50 rats per set of 4 "C" batteries (included). Disposal is easy, too – offering a no-touch, no-see experience.
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.
Once inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and jolting the rat with a 4,000 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.
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:
- 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.

Bought 3 traps and haven't caught anything. I have one in an outside shed along with 2 other victor traps. I have caught 2 critters with the regular traps and nada with the expensive electronic traps. I have set them up according to the instructions. Don't waste your money.Response From Victor®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback, we apologize for your experience.
When using several different types of traps, rodents will often go to the most easily accessible bait first. For best results with an electronic trap, we recommend removing any other traps from the area.
We hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any additional questions.
Worked for less than 48 hours, started buzzing and showing the flashing green after being turned on for about 30 seconds.Response From Victor®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
If the trap is indicating a catch without a rat, we recommend cleaning the metal plates to ensure that no dirt or debris is fooling the trap.
To clean the trap, first turn it off and remove the batteries. The metal plates can then be wiped with a damp cloth and allowed to air dry fully. Once dry, the trap can be baited and the batteries reinserted.

Review RateAwesome Victor Product
Excellent product! 6 huge Rats in 4 nights. What an awesome product! Absolutely love my Rat Zapper. No joke, this product is well worth the investment. I tried everything to catch my pesky rodents. One in done with this product.
Review RateDefinitely recommend!
I definitely recommend the Victor Electronic Rat Trap! We purchased property that has been empty for a few years so you can imagine what moved in over the years! We set the traps with no bait the first night and caught mice in all three of them. I have no problem baiting and setting these traps like I do the snap traps.
Review Rate10 Stars! These traps work as advertised.
I bought 2 traps and after 30 days I'm up to 5 kills-- and these are BIG rats, not mice. One tip: Rats will commit suicide getting to a Snickers candy bar. I bait the traps with peanut butter as instructed, but also include a very small slice from a Snickers bar. It is the ultimate attractant. They love it. Cannot resist! Happy Hunting
Review RateLIFE ON THE FARM WITH VICTOR MEANS DEATH TO THE RODENTS!!!!!!!!!!!
I HIGHLY recommend these traps. We live on a farm, and have field mice that get into all the feed sheds. I bought this trap a yr ago, and just bought 3 more. It is used to catch the mice, thankfully no rats here, but mice are just as destructive. Then the best part, just DUMP and reset. half the time i dont even bait it, and they wander in. we just set them and forget them, and KNOW they will do their job. dont bother with snap , sticky or bait. just get these, and forget about the rest. The battery life is also amazing. This is the most ingenious device ever invented....
Review Ratethis product works I recommend it, simple to use.
We use a pest control service with several baited traps around our shop and property and still had some costly damage to customers property in the shop overnight. We got the electronic rat traps (2 pack special) and the first night we set the traps as instructed, I received a text about 6am the next morning from my employee with a picture of a huge Rat. It's been about a month and so far so good. I need to get some of these for my attic I know they are up there we can hear them, being out in a rural area it will be an even better test. My neighbor has a huge mouse problem I will refer this to him. If this works out at my country home my next rating will be a 5 star +++
Review Rategreat product
i bought one trap on friday. set it friday night using cat food. saturday morning had a 2 foot rat inside. very happy with results. i have being trying to get rid of this rat for weeks nothing else worked. i tried raticide, glue traps, and snap traps
Review RateGREAT PRODUCT
I bought one of these traps earlier this week. Put it out the first night without bait so they could get used to it. The next night I baited it with peanut butter, within twenty minutes had a big dead Norway Rat. Last night re-set it, within twenty minutes and another one, re-set it. This morning found another one inside. That's three rats in two nights! Well worth the money, so far.
Review Rateexcellent product.
these mice, are not the kind of visitors or residents you wish to share your home with. This trap was recommended by our rural mountain fire dept. Now they have a big problem with mice. This unit is amazing. I finally had my turn with these rodents and this unit works! Simple , simple to use. I would highly recommend it!
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.
