I have a rat problem in my attic. After searching around for solutions, this product appears to have the best solution to help with my rat problem. So far my Rat Zapper Ultra has caught 5 rats, and it is still going strong. I read some reviews complaining about battery life, I belive they are refering to the original Raz Zapper, not the Ultra version. The difference is that the Ultra version uses 'D' size batteries, which last much longer than the 'AA' used in the regular Rat Zapper. I have my rat zapper on for the last 3 month and the batteries are still ok. When it comes to catching rats, the fine details really matters. It is not easy to get them to take the bait. The bait that comes with the Rat Zapper didn't work at all. The rats don't care them at all. I had paced some of those bait outside the trap, and the rats won't even eat them. What I find works really well is peanut butter. What I do is use a glob of peanut butter about the size of a quater, and place it on a sheet of candy paper(I use the black circular paper from See's candy). The placement of the peanut butter should be skewed to one edge of the paper. Place the peanut butter bait inside the trap such that the peanut butter is just touching the metal grill at the end of the trap. That way, a rat can stick his paw in and get some sample of the peanut butter from outside of the cage. In addition, I smear a tiny amount of peanut butter on the outside of the metal grill to attract the rats, and gurantee that they can get a free sample. The rats just love peanut butter. When ever I have a catch, I notice that the peanut butter on the grill is alway licked clean by the rat, and they just can't resist going in to get the rest of the peanut butter once they have a good taste of the stuff.Read more ›

My family moved into our current house five years ago, and our first autumn here we discovered that our house was a quite popular Fall Resort in the mouse world. :(

In those five years, we've tried a large number of ways to stop this yearly invasion:

- Traditional Traps

They simply didn't work. Either the mouse could eat the bait without triggering the trap, or it would catch the mouse without killing it - which was pretty disgusting. I did find one type of traditional trap that worked, but then it was discontinued.

- Glue Traps

These were basically worthless. Mice would drag them to a new location, but then free themselves without too much trouble.

- Poison

This was a fun solution - I would go into my basement (where I work) and smell a week-dead mouse that I couldn't find.

- "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

One year I simply didn't bother to try to catch them; I was too exhausted from previous attempts. I figured as long as they stayed hidden, I would ignore their existence. This option didn't go over too well with the wife.

After all this frustration, I figured I would try the Rat Zapper. All I can say is: IT WORKS! I caught 6 mice in the first 48 hours I had it set up, and disposing of the mice and resetting the trap was clean and easy. Best of all, I can use this trap for years to come; it no longer has to be a yearly experiment to see how I can catch our rodent visitors.

I live near a dairy so vermin come and go and sometimes stay. My first Rat Zapper Ultra worked great killing several rats in my attic. I left the Rat Zapper Ultra in my attic for several months and forgot all about it. I heard rats in my attic and remembered that I had left the Zapper up there. I checked the Rat Zapper, and the batteries were dead. I put fresh batteries in the zapper and it was not zapping. I looked inside the Rat Zapper and saw that rats had chewed up the inside ceiling of the Rat Zapper and wiring. The rats killed my first Rat Zapper! It was my fault for not checking on it and making sure the batteries were in good condition.

I bought two more Rat Zappers because they kill rats and this time I checked on them weekly. The zappers killed several rats (payback) and eliminated my rat problem in my attic for about a year. A few days ago, I heard rats again in my attic again it sounded like two rats because I could hear them chasing each other around. I was ready for rat war and loaded up my two Rat Zappers with fresh batteries and baited them with peanut butter. The rats would not take the peanut butter bait. I was very frustrated because peanut butter always worked in the past.

Two days passed and the rats were winning the war as they continued to defy my Rat Zappers. Then while cleaning my garage, I found rat droppings next to a bag of dry dog food I had stored in my garage. I saw that the bottom of it was chewed open and that was the reason the rats did not want the peanut butter because they were feasting on high quality dog food. I prepared for battle and bought a commercial grade heavy duty Brute plastic trash can and put the the bag of dry dog food inside it and sealed it shut.

After getting the same canned answer from 'Agrizap' support I have to put my .02 out here...

The product works great for perhaps the 1st year...then after the warranty is up (1 year)...it will start to lose it functionality in the form of 'false trips' as they stated, the light will blink but no one is home, bait still in tact etc... oooor free food, the bait will be gone and nothing is tripped.... *there is maintenance associated with this unit, as these critters are zapped they lose control of bodily functions - urine specifically - and that is detrimental to the unit/will bridge the contact/frame together causing it to malfunction, so you must clean/soak it very carefully...however after all of that joyful time is spent, both of my units still do not function as intended...

I have spent over $120 on 2 units/battery pack accessory...(not to mention batteries for this duration...another easy $50?) I will let you weigh the worth, however I've lost my patience with 'made in china' products breaking between 90 days - 1 year on the mark and emptying my wallet to replace them like it's part of the routine...companies needs to take accountability/ownership...otherwise please continue to write up honest reviews and let them feel it in their wallets...
