Description
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 an indoor location with high rodent activity and turn it on.

High Voltage Shock
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. When it's time to change the batteries, the light will flash red.

Note: If you have the old version of the Rat Zapper® Classic (with the plug), the light will flash red for all alerts instead of green.

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.

Classic Rat Zapper is the BEST for killing rats! By Sue

From 2015: I cannot begin to express how incredible this product is. I purchased a few more of these Original Rat Zappers because they absolutely kill rats! Our area in Ahwatukee (Phoenix) is infested with roof rats due to the numerous citrus trees in yards. Some folks just won't pick their fruit so the rats run freely day and night throughout the neighborhoods. This all began about 4 years ago, and it's getting worse each year. My beloved Rat Zappers killed 3 rats on Thursday, 2 yesterday, and another one this morning. All of the rats were zapped while on my back patio so it's a huge relief to me to have this product doing its job! Much better than bait stations which actually lure the rats to your property and poison them slowly to die wherever.... I can't praise this product enough. Thank you Victor Pest for purchasing the company that invented the Rat Zapper. I will continue to use and review this product. It's been well worth the money I spend on these units! I wish they'd wise up and realize my yard means death to them and they head elsewhere. UPDATE: I continue to use these Rat Zappers with GREAT SUCCESS! I hate to say that. I wish our community would be more proactive in regards to eradicating the roof rats that continue to plague this area. The rat population has grown especially when folks refuse to pick the citrus from their trees. Please note: Victor Pest has discontinued the wonderful accessory, the Rat Tales which allowed you to place the Zappers in hidden areas and see blinking eyes on the Rat Tale warning you of a kill without having to directly check the Zappers hidden behind objects. I am really disappointed to see the end of the Rat Tales. I did not discover a dead rat in a Zapper for three days and it smelled awful once discovered and was covered in maggots. Victor Pest you made a bad decision by discontinuing a remarkably great accessory!!! PLEASE BRING BACK THE RAT TALES!!! I am guessing you did this, Victor Pest so that you can sell more Rat Packs which I truly do not think is necessary on the Classic Zapper. The four AA batteries really work for a long time here in AZ and the Rat Tales are a better and more useful accessory.

Disappointed... By JF

I'm very disappointed that you've changed the integral parts of the rat zapper. You've replaced the metal plate and lights with a cheaper design similar to the the electronic mouse traps. What was once a flashing red light with a better metal plate in the trap is now the green light (with a terribly slow flashing interval if something is caught) and the metal plate has the initiating startup 'buzz' of the mouse traps which failed 1 month after purchase.

Jules : Consumer Relations Representative




We are sorry to hear that your experience with this trap was not as satisfying as it has been in the past! We adjusted the LED light to flash green, upon being turned on, in order to clear confusion across our line of products. Now all of our traps will turn on and flash a green LED. Additionally, the light blinks slowly once a rodent is caught as to not drain the battery before the trap is checked. Hearing a buzz upon startup is not an indication of a malfunction, however, we do back this product with a one-year replacement policy. To receive a replacement, please send yourtrap's original receipt and your full mailing address to consumers@woodstream.com

Great Product By Scarydcat

Excellent zapper. We had a problem catching mice in the house. They were going everywhere but the traps. I finally moved the zapper to where it would have to turn the corner and zap... We have caught 20+ in a month! Now we are pest free. Best bait is peanut butter cookie. I am the squeamish type, so not having to touch it is great. We have two working, but the third one is defective. Anyways, I have recommended to friends and I know they have purchased and caught some as well.

Stops working By JP

2 zaps... 2 rats killed. Easy. But now it won't work. I've cleaned it as instructed with no luck. So that's roughly $25 per rat. I live near woods and wetlands so rats are always trying to move in. Not an affordable solution.

Did not work By SteveYYZ

Did not work, returned for refund. Set trap indoors as directed with peanuts as bait. Trap repeatedly indicated as triggered, nothing in trap, perhaps rodent wore gloves? Purchased classic snap trap, problem solved. Perhaps defective unit?

Tried all sorts of traps, this one works!!! By Titch

I have been trying to get rid of a rat in my garage for a few months. Tried all sorts of baits and traps of different sizes, but this smart little bugger (actually not so little) would take the bait sometimes tripping the traps and go off on his merry little way to cause more damage. I purchased 2 of the Rat Zappers at my local Ace Hardware, brought them home, and baited them with dog food which seemed to be his food of choice. Caught him on the first night!!! After all the damage this rodent has caused, the Rat Zapper is well worth the price. I easily emptied the trap and reset it to get any of his friends that my be hanging out with him. I highly recommend the product to anyone trying to get rid of problematic rodents when conventional traps and baits aren't working.

Not durable By Sonny

This trap does work well, but it has a bad flaw. The smallest amount of moisture will be channeled to the electronics board because of the shape and design of the top cover. The board does not appear to have a coating to protect it either, and soon the trap will be non functional due to corrosion.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Kathryn : Consumer Relations Representative

Thank you for your feedback! This trap is not weatherproof and is recommended for indoor use only. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-VICTOR (1-855-584-2867) for assistance with our 30-day guarantee and 1-year replacement policy, we're happy to help!

Best product ever By Taffy

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!

Best Trap Ever By DeeDee

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.

Q&A
Q.What is the maximum size of rats that can be killed with this trap? Will it kill standard foot long sewer rats?
A.

This trap is recommended for mice and average sized rats. For larger sized rats, we recommend our Rat Zapper® Ultra Rat Trap.

Q.what does it mean when red light stays flshing
A.

A flashing red light is an indicator of a kill.

Q.Hi bought one of these Rat Zapper classics and absolutely love it, best one I've ever had. My question however is to find out if there's a way I can adapt this to use an AC adapter instead of constantly feeding it batteries - advantage of using an AC adapter is to put it on a timer and not harm daytime critters. If adapting this isn't possible then is there a version of the Rat Zapper classic that comes with an AC adapter?
A.

We do not have any recommendations for modifying this trap for an AC power source. All of our electronic traps are battery-powered.

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.
