Review RateBest product ever
Rarely do you find a product that lives up to its hype - but the Rat Zapper is a stellar example of a product that delivers. This is my second season of using it to eradicate the multitudes of chipmunks that are decimating my garden. Last year, in spite of many rainy days I got 49. Hoping to beat that record, so far I have 32. And over a month of rain when I couldn’t use it. The many stone walls in my garden are a haven for them, as are my bulbs and roses. I sing it’s praises to all my friends and garden club members. It’s the only thing that is effective against them. I may have to put a second one out to increase my rate!
Review RateBest Trap Ever
At first it didn't work because the directions said use dry dog food. I read the reviews and it said use peanut butter. I put peanut butter and a few pieces of dry dog food way in the back. We caught so many rats!!!! It's the best trap ever. We used the spring loaded ones and could't catch anything.
Review RateExcellent zapper
Review Rateworks fantastic
All 3 traps were put to use right away after delivery. I am very pleased with how convenient and easy it is to use. The traps have been using their batteries and it is quick and easy to dispose of the critters.
Review RateRidding atticn of squirrels
I've used your Rat Zappers for years. Recently a friend had an invasion of squirrels in his attic. The local pest exterminator was charging $100 per visit to get them out. I gave him two of the Rat Zappers and he's had no further trouble. His attic is now a "Squirrel-Free Zone". Thank You.

Review RateRat zapper
The rat zapper works great. In a matter of a couple of weeks we have seriously decreased both pack rat and mouse populations
Since you don't delivery to Puerto Rico, I had my cousin to Order for me in Orlando Florida she was coming to Puerto Rico on Vacation and she got me the electronic traps.... It work great, in my mom storage room i caught a few already. I had a problem that the rat or mouse used to go to the back of the trap and eat part of the bait. What I did was place a peace of wood at the back of the trap and Bingo it got caught. Which you could delivery to P.R. because I had some friend that I let then borrowed and they like it. For two year and still working I give it a 5 Star.......
Rat Zapper Classic Trap - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where do I place the trap?
A: Place the trap along the wall where rodents primarily travel or where you have seen signs of rodent activity. Rats are wary critters and they’ll initially avoid anything new in their environment. Good news is we’re smarter than they are! It may take a few days or nights for the first rat to enter your trap but be patient!
Q: How do I bait the trap?/What should I use to bait the trap?
A: To bait the Rat Zapper, 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 Rat Zapper unless you place it in a plastic container, like a medium plastic bottle cap, and then slide it to the back of your Rat Zapper. (Otherwise you may goop the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)
Q: What type of batteries do I need?
A: The Rat Zapper Ultra requires 4 “D” alkaline batteries which will provide approximately two years of stand-by power. Use high quality alkaline batteries to ensure the best results.
