Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap

Eliminate your rodent problem quickly and effectively with the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap. From set-up and use through cleaning and maintenance, each zap will be a snap thanks to the easy-to-use design. This humane trap kills rodents using a high-voltage shock and since rats are able to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes to ensure higher kill rates. To get started, simply apply a high-protein bait in the provided bait cup, place the trap in a location with high rodent activity and turn it on.

High-Voltage Shock Humanely Kills Rodents

High-Voltage Shock Humanely Kills Rodents

The Rat Zapper® Classic is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, it steps on the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a continuous high-voltage shock for 2 minutes to effectively eliminate rat invader. This trap is capable of eliminating up to 20 rats per set of fully charged batteries (4 “AA”).

LED Light Alerts

With the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap, simplifying your pest control routine is a breeze. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes green to indicate a kill. You’ll know when it’s time to empty your trap without having to check manually.

No-Touch Cleanup

No-Touch Cleanup

With the Rat Zapper® Classic, cleanup is effortless! Unlike standard rat traps, you don’t have to touch or look at dead rodents. The rat is contained within the kill chamber, which hides it from sight, while the indicator light lets you know when it’s time to empty. After a kill, just tip the trap to discard the dead rodent into the trash without having to touch it.

How to Set the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap

For your convenience, the Rat Zapper® Classic Rat Trap is very easy to use. Get your trap setup by following these four simple steps:

  1. Add Bait - Apply a small amount of high-protein bait, such as peanut butter, to the back wall of the trap away from the metal plates using a Q-tip or other tool to avoid transferring your scent.
  2. Insert Batteries - Remove the battery cover. Insert 4 “AA” batteries into the battery compartment before replacing the cover.
  3. Place the Trap - 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 entrance nearest to the wall.
  4. Turn On - Activate by flipping the switch to the “ON” position. A green light will blink once to indicate the trap is functioning properly.

This works well if you ...don't use messy bait
4
Jan 8, 2024
This works well if you have the right bait. Victor Pest recommends peanut butter -- not only is it messy, but the mice where I live/lived (Northern VA and NE OH) don't go for it. In Northern VA, the mice always went for dog kibble. In NE OH, the mice didn't like dog kibble but loved whole peanuts. You may have to experiment to learn what the mice in your area like. Steer clear of messy bait like peanut butter. I only give the Rat Zapper 4 stars because it is hard to clean and I consider that a design flaw. Victor should find some way of allowing you to easily access the rear of the Zapper for cleaning purposes.

Poor. Discharges without a rat in there. Drains batteries and makes this useless.

Poor. Discharges without a rat in there. Drains batteries and makes this useless. I ordered one of these years ago, it worked well.. For a while. I ordered 2 about a year ago just in case. Once I tried them, I realised about 39 seconds agmfter the batteries are added, the unit discharges like there is something in the trap. I tried cleaning them out and making sure there wasn't dust or anything in the way, but the problem persisted. Yesterday, I ordered another (along with traps from other companies) hoping the previous faulty traps were just a bad batch or were damaged in delivery, but the new trap is exactly the same. There are clear design and manufacturing flaws that Victor doesn't care to change. This problem is persistent on many message boards. The best advice I found on these message boards was to disassemble the devices and put them back together with tools that most of us don't have.

My building has had a rat problem.

Jul 11, 2023
My building has had an infestation since lockdown. I've yet to fill all the access points, so in the meantime I'm zapping the invading rats. Since my husband died in May, it's all on me. My brother-in-law charges too much. I love that I can get rid of the bodies without having to look at them. I do not reuse the traps for that reason and have spent about $800 of my fixed income to date, but it's worth it. Just a bit of peanut butter, place the trap by their favorite spot, and in no time they're caught. Love that the light flashes to let me know I got one. I then use my grabber, quickly put it all in a trash bag barely looking, take it down the hall, and throw it all down the chute. Can't recommend this enough. I buy the three-pack. The fact that I get points with every purchase is an added bonus.

We have a chicken house and recently some rats moved in underneath. The Rat Zapper appears to have eradicated them. Its been several weeks and no more rats.

This product is very surprising ...

Jan 26, 2023
This product is very surprising in that it has caught some really big rats, so big that the whole tail is visible outside the entrance, and still worked for many more catches before needing batteries. For me, it is very handy that takes AA batteries because I use rechargeable batteries many times keeping a backup supply charging for changes. I originally had the silver unit with the light-up mouse plugin( fun to see them light up) but the C batteries did not seem to last. The 4 stars are because cleaning is a problem I have not found a good way to do that without damaging the unit.

Used to work great. Not so much anymore. These things cost way too much to malfunction.

I have purchased several of these traps over the years and mostly used them with great results. However the last two purchases (three traps at a time) I have made the traps have been mostly defective with the bait gone and the trap not blinking. My most recent purchase was to replace the defective ones I received on my the order before. Unfortunately I got more of the same.

Again, a few good catches, then no longer-this was a replacement for same issue? Do, very much, appreciate the generous customer service with the replacement. Have had many of these zappers over the years, and figured wore them out after MANY catches. May up the game regarding model we use?

Old model was better

Old model with the red blinking light was significantly better - new model only blinks green intermittently upon kill (12-15 seconds). It seems to be another case of cutting cost. Sometimes it doesn't''t blink at all....
