Victor M240 Electronic Rat Trap
Unlike traditional snap traps, the Victor Electronic Rat Trap uses a high-voltage, quick and humane shock that kills the rat. Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts after an electrical shock, the Victor Electronic Rat Trap applies shock for 2 minutes ensuring a high kill rate. The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is as efficient as it is effective, killing up to 50 rats per set of 4 "C" batteries (not included).
How It Works
The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is equipped with advanced smart circuit technology that senses when a 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 7,000 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 green for up to 24 hours to indicate a kill. If the batteries are low or need to be replaced, a red light will blink. To dispose of the rat, just dump the rodent directly into the trash for a hygienic and safe, no-touch, no-see disposal. The trap can either be reset or discarded. To reset, re-bait, place and turn on the trap for continued rodent control. Should an unlikely escape occur, the trap will reset itself. The trap can kill up to 50 rats per set of four "C" batteries.

First, insert 4 "C" batteries into the battery compartment. Bait the trap through the hole in the back wall using a small amount of peanut butter, bacon, dry pet food or nuts. Be sure to use a Q-tip, toothpick or another tool to bait so your scent is not transferred onto the trap.

Effective Control and Expert Tips
Location, Location, Location:
The most important rule for the effective use of traps is to find the right location. Start by thoroughly inspecting your home and determining signs of rodent activity and high-traffic areas for rodents.
Number of Traps:
The most common trapping mistake is not using enough traps. For only a couple of rodents, several traps are not too many. The electronic mouse traps should be placed in areas of high activity or along walls where rodents primarily travel at 2 to 3 foot intervals. For more severe infestations, traps should be placed closer together in areas of high activity. It is not recommended to place a less effective, less hygienic and less humane snap trap next to an electronic trap because it will reduce your results.
Importance of the First Night:
Statistics show that more rats are trapped on the first night than any other night, so plan strategically.
Offer Multiple Bait Choices:
Finally, offer multiple bait choices. Individuals in a rodent population forage for different types of food. Peanut butter, bacon, dry pet food or nuts are all great options.
Check traps regularly and continue to trap until signs of rodent activity dissipate.
Always Wear Gloves:
Human odors on traps are not likely to deter rodents but to be sure, always wear disposable gloves or use a tool such as a Q-tip or toothpick to bait. Also, for personal hygiene and biohazard awareness, disposable gloves should always be worn when installing or recovering any traps.
