Safe and Sanitary
The Rat Zapper Classic is perfect for use anywhere in the home. Built with high-quality electronics, recycled plastics, and recycled packaging, the Rat Zapper Classic is both effective and environmentally friendly. It is ideal for attics, garages, basements and sheds. While it's always wise to use caution around children and pets, there is no blood, mess, chemicals, or poisons with the Rat Zapper Classic.
You can "zap" 20 rats with one set of 4 “AA” batteries, which makes it a truly effective rattrap.
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.
How To UseThe Rat Zapper Classic Electronic Rat Trap
Open the top hatch on the trap. Insert 4 “AA” batteries (not included).
Bait the trap with a small amount of dry, high-protein bait such as bacon, nuts or dry pet food (wear gloves to mask your scent.
Place the trap flush against a wall where you have seen rodent activity.
Turn the trap on. A single flash of the red light indicates that the trap works normally. No flash indicates the need for fresh batteries.
When the trap indicates a kill, switch it off and tip it out over a rubbish bin to dispose of the dead rodent.
Replace the trap and turn it on again if needed.
Buy the Rat Zapper Classic if you have a mouse or averaged sized rat problem.

Q: Where do I place the trap?
A: 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, but be patient!
Q: How do I bait the trap? / What should I use to bait the trap?
A: To bait the Rat Zapper, first make sure the trap is turned off. Place the bait along or on 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. Sticky Bait Note: Please don’t place moist or sticky 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. (Otherwise you may harm the electronics and/or falsely trip the system.)
