How It Works
The Rat Zapper Classic is equipped with smart circuit technology that senses when the rodent enters the trap. Once the rodent is inside, the rat steps onto the metal plates, completing the circuit and the trap delivers a quick, humane 8,000 volt shock. Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts, the shock is applied for 2 minutes ensuring a high kill rate. Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes red to indicate a kill. You can "zap" 20 rats with one set of 4 "C" batteries, which makes it a truly effective rat trap.
Easy to Use
How easy are they to use? Very--and that's just one reason why they're so popular--just insert batteries, bait, place, turn it on and relax. First, insert 4 "C" batteries into the battery compartment. Using the entrance, bait the trap along the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, dry pet food or nuts. Place the trap where you have seen signs of rodent activity or along the wall where rodents primarily travel. Turn on the Rat Zapper Classic. A red light will blink once indicating the trap is working properly.
The hands-free, "no touch, no view" disposal reduces the "yuck" factor of a common mouse and rat trap. Clean-up is easy and it can be reused indefinitely--your friends and family will want to borrow it for safe, humane rat elimination.

Where do I place the trap?
Place the trap along the wall where rodents primarily travel or where you have seen signs of rodent activity. Rats are wary critters and they'll initially avoid anything new in their environment. Good news is we're smarter than they are! It may take a few days or nights for the first rat to enter your trap so be patient.
How do I bait the trap?/What should I use to bait the trap?
To bait the Rat Zapper, first make sure the trap is turned off. Place the bait against the back wall of the trap. Be sure to use gloves or a tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap. We've carefully researched dry pet food and found it an excellent lure. Other dried baits (nuts, dehydrated fruit, etc.) can also work well. Goopy Bait Note: Please be cautious when using goopy bait in your Rat Zapper unless you place it in a plastic container, like a medium plastic bottle cap, and then slide it to the back of your Rat Zapper. If the goopy bait comes in contact with the electronics, it could falsely trip the system.
What type of batteries do I need?
The Rat Zapper Classic requires 4 "C" alkaline batteries which will provide approximately 20 kills and a entire year of stand-by power. Use high quality alkaline batteries to ensure the best results.
