Rat Zapper Ultra Rat Trap - 1 Trap
If you're looking to get rid of one rat or several large rats, the Rat Zapper Ultra will deliver years of dependable service. This electronic rat trap is humane, safe, and easy to use. From set-up and use through cleaning and maintenance, each zap will be a snap thanks to clear step-by-step instructions. Once the target enters the Ultra, two plates deliver a total of 8,000 volts for two minutes, ensuring high kill rates. And the "no touch" feature makes disposal a truly hands-off experience.
How It Works
The Rat Zapper Ultra 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" 60 rats with one set of 4 “D” batteries, which makes it a truly effective rat trap.
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 “D” 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 Ultra. A red light will blink once indicating the trap is working properly.
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 Ultra is safe for use anywhere in the home. Built with high-quality electronics, recycled plastics, and recycled packaging, the Rat Zapper Ultra 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 Ultra.

Review RateWaste of $90
We purchased a large and small model for ground squirrels and mice. Followed all instructions. Nothing! It’s been a few weeks now and am extremely disappointed. Tried to give them enough time to work and the 30 days for return has passed. Sad to spend so much money on a product that does not work. They. Won’t go inside.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
This product is recommended for indoor use only and is designed for mice and rats. We recommend moving the trap indoors and using it along a wall where rodents are suspected.

Review RateVery Poor Quality
This thing doesn't really even rate one star. Less than two years old, Less than 100 rodents and it's totally DEAD! I've cleaned it, replaced batteries, even taken it apart and tried to diagnose the circuit board. I will probably get another electronic trap, but it won't be one of these.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateIt is USELESS and EXPENSIVE!
It is USELESS and EXPENSIVE! This has been going on for e year now. Multiple times I have added 'tasty' bait in the location suggested in the manual, be sure inside is clean, the batteries are new or have sufficient charge and NOTHING! The bait is gone, no dead critter! WHAT A WASTE!!!Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot happy
I actually purchased two of these traps so we would not have to poison some mice under our house. They started coming in thru a small crack in the back room beside a hotwater heater. So I set both traps in the room, Unfortunately, those mice never went inside the trap with the food. I still had mice for weeks with no luck. They would not go inside it. I had to use poison and now I'm dealing with odor of dead mice. Hopefully the smell will go away soon. I payed out $100 for traps. I wonder if I could return them.Response From WoodstreambrandsPatty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNeeded a product that really works
i've had a very expensive bout with squirrels this year $1800 and $400 dollars damage to my vehicles. Sprays, Peppermint oil, ultrasonics didn't help a bit ! The RAT ZAPPER was the end of my problems. It took about a week but they paid off. I purchased 2 of the traps and the rodents met their just due. They paid a dear price for the vehicle damage, great product. Great alternative to other methods. Thanks B Heydt , Millersville ,MD

Rat Zapper Ultra 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.
