Victor Electronic Rat Trap
Get rid of rats fast with this Victor Electronic Rat Trap. A more humane alternative to traditional snap traps, the Victor Electronic Rat Trap kills rats using a high-voltage shock. The bait placed along the back wall of the trap, lures the rat inside and onto the metal plates. Its advanced smart circuit technology senses the rodent and instantly delivers 7,000 volts of electricity for two minutes, ensuring a permanent kill. The Victor Electronic Rat Trap kills up to 50 rats per set of 4 'C' batteries (not included).
Designed for indoor use or anywhere it’s not exposed to outdoor elements, the reusable Victor Electronic Rat Trap provides years of effective rat control—perfect for attics, garages, basements, and sheds. The trap does not use any poisons or chemicals, but as with any electronic device, it should be used with caution around children and pets.

Simple to Bait and Use
The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is easy-to-use. Start by inserting four 'C' batteries into the battery compartment and replacing the cover. Then, using a Q-tip or toothpick (to avoid leaving your scent), add an enticing rat snack like peanut butter or dry pet food through the hole in the back wall of the trap. Place the rat trap where there are signs of rodent activity. Since rats typically travel along the edge of a room, the trap can also be placed lengthwise along the wall with the bait side closest to the wall. Flip the switch to 'on', and it’s good to go—a green light will blink once and a short buzzing sound will be heard to verify it’s working.
With each kill, the indicator light on top of the trap blinks green for up to 24 hours, and when the batteries run low or need replacing, the light will blink red. In addition to at-a-glance monitoring, the Victor Electronic Rat Trap offers a hygienic, no-touch, no-see disposal—simply tip to safely dump the dead rodent directly into the trash.

Most effective procedure to lure and kill rats/mice:
(1) Place bait inside the trap at the far end of the trap (where the metal end w/ holes is), while leaving the metal plate on the floor of the trap clean and bare of any bait.
(2) Place trap along a "run", usually parallel to a baseboard.
(3) Scatter a little bait outside the trap, in front of trap entryway to lead the rat towards the trap.
(4) !!DO NOT TURN ON THE BAITED TRAP FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS!! so the rats will assume this new source of food is safe for them. Be generous with the bait this first couple of days.
(5) On the third day, bait the trap as usual, place it in the exact location as before, and flick the trap's power switch to "On". Voila...you should have your first electrocuted dead rat/mouse the next morning. You will know this because the little green light on top of the trap will be blinking on and off or you will see the rat's tail sticking out of the trap. Turn the switch to "Off". With gloved hands (disposable nitrile gloves are best), pick up the trap with the rat still inside, open your garbage can, slide the dead rat out of the trap into the garbage can.
EASY, CLEAN, NO MESS, NO CARRION ODOR.
In my northern Calif. rural area known for its organic farming and organic grass-fed cattle, I recycle the electrocuted rats.Read more ›

Dampen a paper towel or an old rag that you really don't want to keep. Place this new wet "welcome mat" down and put the edge of the entry of the trap over it. This will allow the rodent to dampen the bottoms of his feet just before entering the death chamber.
In very dry environments (including the house), their little feet can become less that condusive for the special delivery of shock and they either won't trigger the zap or the are insulated enough to not get a full deadly dose.
I had my first two rodents get in, deliver the shock and leave... I read about this welcome mat trick and decided to give it a try. Since then I have had one kill EVERY NIGHT for 9 nights in a row.
All I know is that the change did work... Perfectly.
So, I had a rat problem. The little beasts were getting so they'd climb up the screen outside the window at the end of the couch where I was watching tv. Very acrobatic. They had to go.
I tried the cheap solution. Glue traps: useless. Mouse traps: too small. Rat traps: worked once in a while. Modernized rat traps: useless. Poison: ever smelled a two week dead mouse in your garage?
So I found this electronic trap. Set it up and 20 minutes later there's a dead rodent in it. So I emptied rodents out a couple of times each evening.
Well, I left it on after the last one and next afternoon there was a squirrel half in and half out and dead as a dodo. This is not a toy.
The trap will kill mice and squirrels and pretty much any other similarly sized pest. Few dogs or cats, even dachshunds, could get their nose far enough in to have a problem. However, check this out before you use it if you have pets. A squirrel fits all of the way in except about two thirds of its tail.
The manufacturer, on the packaging, specifically states, "NOT FOR OUTDOOR USE." This would seem to be for a couple of reasons: 1) it is not water proof so rain and runoff would probably destroy it; 2) it might have problems with heavy dew shorting the plates inside the trap. However, on days with low relative humidity I have used this in a protected area outside to good effect to catch "outside" rats.
