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.Best used for:AtticsGaragesBasementsKitchensHigh-Voltage Shock Humanely Kills Rodents The Rat Zapper® Classic is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters the trap.

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.

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.......
Review Rategood value for dollars spent
I have only used 2 of the 3 and seem to be working just fine...easy catch and easier cleanup. they must be kept dry
Review RateAwesome product! It works!
These are AWESOME! I set the black traps in conjunction and caught 1, but I think they know what the regular snap traps looks like and avoided them. I set up 2 black traps in the corner and 1 Zapper with a piece of miniature shredded wheat in the back so it does not rest on the sensor, and I walked away. A few days later 1 saw the red light flashing and got excited, wondering if the trap actually caught something. I looked inside and YES it caught a mouse! I turned the switch off and put a bag over the opening and dumped the mouse and food, then put a potato chip since I ran out of cereal. That worked too! In 2 other rooms I also had only the Zapper in use. I purchased multiple Zappers to place in strategic points based on where I saw mouse dropping or actually saw them running. They apparently didn't go into one room, but the Zapper did get one in the room at the back! I turned the switch off and dumped the body and food into a black bag and put a potato chip and turned the switch back on and walked away. In total, I have caught 2 with one Zapper and 2 with another Zapper so far. This is over a period of a few weeks. This Zapper product is the best! I think mice are not familiar with this type of trap so they get caught. I will be purchasing more soon for use at my brother's house. Hopefully the Zapper will do the same job at his house.
Review RateWorks well if used the right way!
Please pass this on to Bill Kelliher... it seems that users can't answer other users comments. I have had one for 5 + years and am ordering an other. At first it didn't work and at the time the how to use instructions were different and of course I didn't read the instructions but called int to say that it wasn't any good..... Here's how I was told to use the trap and it works very well: 1- leave the zapper OFF and put peanuts on the floor close to the entrance 2-wait till the pea nuts have been eaten 3-repeat step 2 4-still with zapper off place peanuts half way into the trap and again wait till all peanuts are gone 5-turn zapper ON and place peanuts on the kill plate and VOILA a dead rat. NOTE: Rats are very intelligent and if bait is placed at the back on the first try, the rat will go in for the food but very slowly and will cense the electricity with it's whiskers and back off. By doing the above steps it will build the rat's confidence and it will charge right in to eat. AND BY BY RAT.
I bought 9 of these rat traps and only caught 1 rat. the traps are always blinking and guess what NO MOUSE!! food is gone lights blinking like something is in there...fresh batteries every time. waste of moneyResponse From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and appreciate the time taken to share this feedback. When baiting the trap, we recommend using a toothpick amount of peanut butter on the back wall of the trap or one or two pieces of dried dog food at the back of the trap. If bait is scattered inside the trap, this may cause a false trigger.
To reset the trap, we recommend cleaning the metal plates with a hydrogen peroxide solution. Please turn the trap off and remove the batteries before cleaning. Once the trap has dried, we recommend re-baiting (following the instructions above) and placing the trap against the wall in an area where rats have been seen.
We hope this information was helpful. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) with any questions or for additional assistance.
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.
