Description

Let's face it: killing rats probably isn't one of your favorite things to do. Which is why the Rat Zapper Classic was made to be as humane, safe, and easy to use as possible. If you want a top-quality solution that will deliver years of dependable service, buy the electronic Rat Zapper Classic for quick control of your rodent problem.

If you have average-sized rats and a need for less than 20 kills per set of batteries, get the Rat Zapper Classic electronic rat trap, equipped with a large chamber size. However, if you are dealing with larger rats, consider buying the Rat Zapper Ultra (sold separately), equipped with the largest chamber size available and is suited to kill more than 20 rats per set of batteries.

 
 

How It Works

The Rat Zapper Classic is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when the rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a quick, humane 8,000 volt shock. Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes ensuring a high kill rate. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes red to indicate a kill. You can "zap" 20 rats with one set of 4 “AA” batteries, which makes it a truly effective rat trap.

Features

Easy to Use

How easy are they to use? Very--and that's just one reason why they're so popular--just insert batteries, bait, place, turn it on and relax. First, insert 4 “AA” batteries into the battery compartment. Using the entrance, bait the trap along the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, dry pet food or nuts. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. Turn on the Rat Zapper Classic. A red light will blink once indicating the trap is working properly.

Simple Setup

"Yuck"-Free Cleanup

The hands-free, "no touch, no view" disposal reduces the "yuck" factor of a common mouse and rat trap. Clean-up is easy and it can be reused indefinitely--your friends and family will want to borrow it for safe, humane rat elimination.

Safe and Sanitary

The Rat Zapper Classic is safe for use anywhere in the home. Built with high-quality electronics, recycled plastics, and recycled packaging, the Rat Zapper Classic is both effective and environmentally friendly. It is ideal for attics, garages, basements and sheds. While it's always wise to use caution around children and pets, there is no blood, mess, chemicals, or poisons with the Rat Zapper Classic.

So So Easy and Clean to use!! By Oliviasmom

Works Great! Just make sure when you are putting the bait in the holes on the back side that you get the bait all the way in. I have caught several rats but have one that is smart enough to eat the bait through the holes on the back side without ever going in. He has done this for the past four nights in a row!! The holes on the back of the trap are to BIG! They need to be smaller. It isn't difficult for the Rat to remove the bait through the holes on the back and not get killed. I had three not so bright rats go right in and get zapped! Definitely worth the money!

not happy it will not work By tc

it works as a feeding station never has killed anything. I have replaced batteries and still will not work. lights come on and looks as if it would work but does not. the rats love the peanut butter they clean it up in not a flash. tried to call support never could get a person to pick up listen to bad music for a long time.

Sudden infestation in 1863 rowhouse By Rob

I have lived in our 1863 rowhouse for 23 years and never had any rodent problems. Recently the empty building next door was sold and massive renovation occurred. While this was great for the neighborhood the buildings on both sides developed problems with rats. I started finding bread, cookies, etc. left on the kitchen counter overnight partially eaten. Even my lazy cats dry food was disturbed. I caught 1 rat the first night I set it out and 1 every night for the next 5 nights. I haven't seen any sign of rats such as droppings, etc. since then, but am arming the RatZapper every night as a precaution. Really well worth the money. Easy, fast and very effective.

This is a great trap. Very easy to use and is very effective at killing rats, just make sure you have the bait all the way into the unit. Also no mess to clean up, just remove dead rat!

Worthless By Bill

The only reason I give this a one star is because a zero rating is not available. We have had this for over a month and it has not caught one rat. I went out and bought some traditional traps and got six rats in the last two weeks. Save your money and get standard traps. This electronic trap is worthless. I only wish that I could get my money back.

Very reliable By Sayonaranancy

We bought three traps 5 years ago... and we've had a lot of service out of them. Here the field mice try to escape the cold by coming in... this year one of our traps finally failed (probably the one that exposed to outdoor conditions). We immediately sent out for three more. We got them in very quickly, and they seem to be the same ones as before.

FAQs

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.
