Product Overview

Get rid of rats fast with this Victor Electronic Rat Trap. A more humane alternative to traditional snap traps, the Victor Electronic Rat Trap kills rats using a high-voltage shock. The bait placed along the back wall of the trap, lures the rat inside and onto the metal plates. Its advanced smart circuit technology senses the rodent and instantly delivers 7,000 volts of electricity for two minutes, ensuring a permanent kill.

Dimensions detail

Known for the most innovative rodent control products on the market, Victor presents the Electronic Rat Trap, the only rat trap with a patented 3-plate design to prevent escapes. Easy to use, the trap is simply baited, placed against the wall and turned on. The trap uses advanced smart circuit technology to sense when a rodent enters the units. Once the rodent is inside, the system delivers a humane, high-voltage shock to effectively kill the rat or mouse in seconds. A green indicator light illuminates when a rat has been exterminated and is ready for removal. Rodents can then be dumped directly into the trash for no-touch, no-view mouse control. Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts after an electrical shock, the Victor Electronic Rat Trap applies shock for 2 minutes ensuring high kill rates. Additionally, the Victor Electronic Rat Trap is the only trap that automatically resets after an irregular escape. Safe for use anywhere in the home, the Victor Electronic Rat Trap is ideal for Attics, Garages, Basements, Sheds and Kitchens. A lifetime investment, the Electronic Rat Trap is easy to clean and can be reused indefinitely. For effective rat control, one set of 4 'C' batteries will eliminate up to 50 rats and a red light indicates when batteries need replacing. Batteries are not included.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can you use this trap outdoors?

Asked by: rsgreen2527
I have used this rat trap exclusively outdoors without any problems. I have it on my patio in a dry area and I make sure it does not get wet. Amazing kill rate. I'm afraid a have a rat's nest somewhere in the crawl space of my home, and since I only have one Victor, I can only kill one at a time. Having said that, I put it out 4 nights ago, and every nite I've got a kill. Kind of disgusting though, tells me I've got a bit of a rat problem! Anyway, I recommend this device, it is amazing and really works.

Does the sysytem make a noise when a rat has been caught/shocked. For instance a bug zapper has an audible noise.

Asked by: sarah
You won't hear anything, unless the rat gives a tiny little rat-scream, or uses profanity.

Where do you pasted the peanut butter bait? Inside or behind the plate?

Asked by: RatHunter187
The rodent has to step on both plates at the same time for it to work, so I took a piece of dog food and put a dollop of peanut butter on it and stuck it to the inside plastic part, (what I suppose you could call the ceiling) just past the junction of the 2 plates. That way they will be standing right where they need to be to get zapped. Out of the dozen I actually saw get caught in one weekend, only 1 escaped with the bait that way.

We did a catch an release to a new location for a few of squirrels but it appears a new FAMILY has moved into the barn and they are making a huge mess.

Will not work for squirrels, opening too small.

PROS Easy cleanup Green flashing light means you dont have to look at the dead mouse just know one is caught and dead Caught two mice, once within the first 3 hours of deployed CONS Packaging forgets to mention "BATTERIES ARE NOT INCLUDED" It was a huge ordeal to install the batteries, battery area is very cheaply made Not clear if you can use other bait beyond peanut butter, and that can sit on the floor of the trap and it still works Large rear holes mean food near the back lower holes can be gotten without entering the trap. I taped these over.

Upon discovering ittty bitty baby mice (1 1/2") scurrying across my garage floor and knowing there was a probable momma mouse shacking up in there as well, I hightailed it down to my local Home Depot for some rat poison. I quickly noticed this unit on the shelf. There was only one left, so I figured it must be a popular item. Despite the $40 cost, I decided to give it a try justifying that this one purchase will last me at least a good few years. (Our home backs up to a large open space-a perfect mouse habitat so I'm sure it will be a continuing problem) Excited, I rushed home set up the unit. I placed the four C cell batteries inside (It is a bit of a challenge getting them in due to the little tabs that hold the batteries in place), baited the trap with a dab on peanut butter on a little facial cotton round (to reduce mess clean up. Yuck!) which I slid into the back of the trap, flipped the switch to on (it blinked green once as it's supposed to) and anxiously awaited results. The next morning, I went to check the trap. I was bummed to see that a mouse had come inside alright, but had feasted on the peanut butter and only left a bunch of black droppings rather than its dead body. Ewwww and UGH! :( I figured I had gotten a defective trap and was ready to return it, but decided to load it up and try again. The next morning-success!!! Yay! :) I had my first kill-a smallish mouse- not a tiny baby and not the momma. I was happy, but also felt a bit bad because it was kinda cute like a pet mouse I had as a kid (check out the pics). Anyway, I suspect the reason it didn't zap the fist mouse that entered was because perhaps the first one was a tiny baby and the circuit board did not register the weight of it. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. I will update my review in a week or so when it has more time to finish the job and I have more data to report.

He had destroyed our cold-room food supply, gnawed his way through our security system wires, made holes in storage boxes in the garage and was defecating and urinating everywhere. I initially tried to catch him with a small animal trap so I could release him somewhere, but he was way smarter than I was, and managed to get the bait out of the trap every time without triggering it. I tried regular rat traps but he managed to get the bait without triggering those too. Yesterday I purchased the Victor Electronic rat trap and left it running last night. We had a rat funeral this morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kills chipmunks and adult squirrels I purchased the trap when I noticed some rat droppings in my barn. It caught them in a few nights and I never had another problem so I put it away. Recently the cute chipmunk population exploded and they began chewing on everything including the garden, house and the our new SUV. So I threw some batteries in it and put in in the tomatoes. 13 chipmunks and an adult squirrel later I think I have run out of critters. I did try the catch and release act and they came back even when dropped off a couple of miles down the road. I spent 2 weeks catching them over and over. How did I know they were the sames ones? I sprayed them with the kids colored hair dye.

I have left this out for the past three weeks (food and all) and the rat managed to retrieve the food, the lights went off and no rat! Not happy at all. Either I have a rat with a superior IQ or I got a lemon. The lights came on but no one was home.

I discovered I had a mouse problem, but I also have 4 dogs. Because of the dogs, I could not use poison, traps, or glue boards. So I bought a live trap, had it set for 2 weeks, & caught nothing. So I did some research & went back & bought this electronic trap, & I put it where the dogs can't get to it. I caught a mouse the very first night I put it out, & have caught 8 mice so far. It always works the very night I put it out. I just put 1/4 of a peanut butter cracker towards the back, put it behind the desk, turn it on, & there's a mouse in it the next morning. It's very easy to use & works every time. Couldn't be easier. Excellent product.

Bought this after noticing rats from the neighbor side coming over the fence at night and heading under the bird feeders eating the seeds that fell. It started as 1 rat and ended up being 5 ( a cat got one I saw last week) The 4 rats come every night. Same spot. Didn't want rat poison as I have a bug guy and doesn't recommend the bait boxes so close to where I feed the birds. So, I read reviews on this Electronic Rat Trap. I liked the idea because I actually get to see what I catch. I got up in the middle of the night and could see through the window the Green flashing light. That meant that I got one!! Love that feature! In less than 6 hours I caught one! No mess either. Turn it off. Pick it up. Dump the rat in the trash. Done! You are not suppose to set up outside but during the night where I knew they were every night I put it out, but made sure it was in a dry area. Made sure it was dark too, as to not catch a squirrel or bird, as the opening is fairly large. I used the peanut butter but had some trail mix and put a little inside too. I highly recommend this product. It works!!
