Product Overview

Get rid of large-size rats 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 electronic trap is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when a rodent enters it. Once inside, the rat steps on the metal plates, which completes the circuit and delivers a humane, high-voltage shock. Since rats are able to restart their hearts, the shock is applied continuously for 2-minutes to ensure higher kill rates. 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 green 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. A red light will blink when battery power is low. Designed for indoor use or anywhere it won't be exposed to outdoor elements, the Rat Zapper Classic Rat Trap is perfect for placement in attics, garages, basements and sheds. The trap does not use any poisons or chemicals, but as with any electronic device, use with caution around children and pets. Note: An older version of this trap has a red indicator light for all alerts.

Is this really big enough for a large RAT, not a mouse?

I've killed both mice and rats with mine. If it can fit inside the trap. it'll be killed.

Can this be used over and over again or are they one time traps?

Yes, until the batteries are lower. They claim 20 times before you have to put new batteries in. The unit will tell you the batteries are low when you turn it on.

I'm not getting a green light. What am I doing wrong?

There is no green light. What you describe means its ready to go. Be careful after you catch one if it makes a buzzing sound or you may find out what the rat felt.

What kind and how many batteries does this require ????

Asked by provmag December 25, 2018

Answers

The device takes 4 'AA' batteries. That's double A. When you use Lithium 'AA' batteries you will get more 'zaps' per set of batteries. You can get 4 alkaline 'AA' batteries for about a dollar at the 'dollar' type stores where I am. I read the Lithium (more expensive by far) last about 30 zaps, while the alkaline battery sets give 20 zaps.

I'd prefer not to kill squirrels outside. Any ideas how that could be done?

Asked by WillyD March 17, 2019

Answers

Not sure what you are trying to do. Mice? Rats? I would think that you could simply attach, in a variety of ways, a 'mouse hole' sized plastic cover that would only allow smaller sized rodents to enter the rat trap. Depends on how close in size your targeted critter is to your typical cute squirrels. We have both where I am and reducing the size of the opening should work, although I haven't tried it (or caught any squirrels yet).

Safe to use around pets? Mentions that it is. But can a cat get its paw inside and if it does will the cat be hurt?

Asked by DanaG16 April 10, 2017

Answers

Opening is large....4"H x 3.5"W....big enuf for a cat to get his paw in. And if he makes contact with the two plates, he's going to get a good zap. I would not recommend using if you will be placing it where a cat or children can get to it.

Baiting technique

We used chickens grain with a little outside the Zapper and then a spreading of grain inside the Zapper.

what size lithium batteries

Asked by Kimberly November 10, 2018

Answers

We just used standard AA batteries that came in a 16 pack. Is the upgrade in batteries worth it? Our opinion probably not, but if it is difficult to check the trap daily, but you should, as decomposition occurs quite quickly, then the pricier batteries might help. But with the "flipping" the top power button, it gives you a visual indication whether the batteries are or are not up to snuff.

Can this be used outside exposed to rain ? I have a boat & would like to place them on the dock (easier access). Worried

They are not waterproof at all.

Easy to use. I used garden gloves during the process of unpacking the trap, adding the batteries and food, and placing the trap appropriately. There is a long metal plate at the front that surrounds a smaller plate near the covered rear grate. When you turn the device on the bright red LED on top shines brightly for a moment then dims to nothing, waiting for a visitor. If you see the LED blinking slowly you can assume something tripped a high voltage discharge. I got this because I saw a huge rat going after the few remaining dog food pellets in our dog Daisy's dish, and I didn't want to use regular snap traps because they are such a nasty hassle. I placed the Rat Zapper where I saw the rat come from. I dropped 2 small pellets of food to the back of the trap and a couple more outside the trap near the opening. I turned the trap on. When I checked about 20 minutes later the light was blinking slowly. Hmmm. Yup. Gloves. Big rat in box. Turn switch off. Carry box to big green trash pickup can. Dump rat. Noticed a drop of pee, otherwise the trap was clean. Wipe pee with paper towel. Repeat process. 20 minutes later? Junior visits the trap. No pee this time, just dump the mouse. See the picture!

Day one and I have one chipmunk killed already. Couple of peanuts leading it into the trap and ZAP! Feels a little flimsy so for the price, we will see. Like it at the moment!

I have(had) a few chipmunks living under my back and front porches and expanded their territory to under my backyard shed. I pre-baited this trap with dried corn and gave the critters a fee meal for the first day. After that I armed the trap and in two days I had caught 3 of chipmunks. I'll probably get another of these to use in garage during the winter when the mice move in from the cold. Great product and easy to use. Just be aware that it is not waterproof and will need to be protected from the rain if used outdoors.

Tried glue traps, baited traps and such, nothing worked. Got this one and so far have caught 5 critters in 2 weeks! Very easy to set up and use. Just one thing - it does go through batteries fairly quickly
