  • Kills 50 rats per each per set of 4C batteries
  • High voltage shock kills rats and mice in seconds
  • Easy to use - simply bait, turn on, and empty
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.

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.

Will this trap capture other critters like a squirrel ?

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.
Asked by: frustrated
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.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have left this out for the past three weeks... 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this after noticing rats from the neighbor side coming over the fence at night and heading... 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!!

I've never seen a rat up close, now I've seen at least 6! They're big, but this trap does the job. Just follow the directions, and you're all set. This includes wearing gloves when you handle the trap to ensure your scent is not left behind. Peanut butter works like a charm to attract them. Just set it up where you know there is activity and leave it alone. I had one caught the very next morning. Be sure to use high quality batteries. Also, the batteries were a bit of bear to get installed, so have some patience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works I was skeptical because I believe the rats that have invaded have a PhD in escape. I saw them escape the glue trap I saw them jump over glue trap and eat around a snap trap. I set the trap at night and I woke up at about 4 o'clock in the morning and there was a tail hanging out the back .i dumped the rat in the trash and I reset it just in case I have another one and two hours later there was another tail hanging out of the trap so right now I have it set again just in case I have a third one.

I could not catch it in a humane trap, so I tried the electronic trap. It worked as described and killed it. I was able to drop it in a garbage bag for disposal. Disgusting clean up though, burnt flesh/blood stuck on floor of trap.
