I own three of these traps. My area is nearly overrun with black rats and this is by far the best way I have found to kill them. I have used the same traps for over a year. They have blown off the roof during a storm and one is cracked, they all still work. I use them outside (in Rat Nest covers) and they have survived rain and extreme heat. My record so far is three traps, three days, nine rats. One evening recently I trapped a rat, emptied the trap, trapped a second rat, emptied the trap, and the next morning I had a third rat in the same trap. I recommend this trap to everyone! Oh, bait choice is VERY important. I use peanut butter dog cookies.

I bought this product a couple of weeks ago to help me eliminate Chipmonks. The very first night I caught one, the second night I caught the second one. I am very pleased with the outcome and the ability to save my flowers. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scheide Hello to our mousey world.
I bought two of the blue Zappers. One has now caught 19 of the critters. The other got a red squirrel which put my zapper out of commission. So now the Zapper company is needed for repairs. I am ordering the Ultra with my repaired Classic. Good job Victor. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Country living means mice or rats every Fall. I like that I can just shake the zapper over the trash, refill the bait, reset and I'm ready for the next invasion attempt. Like other reviewer said, bait choice matters. Rats are craftier than mice, so if they have already gotten into something use that. Let their last meal be what they have shown they like. Dog kibble works for me. Co-workers have used saltines. Zapper is pricier than other options to start but worth it over time and I don't have to worry about my dog coming into contact with poisoned vermin.

This is a great trap & a humane one too but you'll find after several catches you'll need too remove the batteries & clean it because it starts to arc between the plates inside, 4 stars because of that & the fact that it's a 1 kill at a time trap. As with all traps, trap location is key to catching, I cought 12 rats using chocolate for bait.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by momus40 I can't believe it's killing so many rats
I bought a Rat Zapper a week ago because our backyard rat was getting all of our tomatoes. I baited the trap with dry dog food without turning it on for 2 days and let the vermin get comfortable with it. Then I turned it on at sunset. When I checked before bed the red led was flashing. Dead rat number one. I re-baited the trap. In the morning: dead rat number two. I didn't realize I had more than one rat, silly me.
The next night I set an old Victor snap trap as well. I got 3 rats in one night. I'm housing a rat village under my deck and didn't realize it.
I'm up to 9 former tenants so far this week.
What's so nice is that the process is so safe and clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shon Excellent Product
When I received the product I followed the simple instructions noted in the manual. I am terrified of rats and mice so when I saw one my garage a few weeks ago I freaked! The first time I placed it in the garage I caught one and have caught three in the last four days. This product is great and I do not see the rat only it's nasty tail. Please buy this product, you will not be disappointed.
