Let's face it: killing rats probably isn't one of your favorite things to do. Which is why the Rat Zapper Classic was made to be as humane, safe, and easy to use as possible. If you want a top-quality solution that will deliver years of dependable service, buy the electronic Rat Zapper Classic for quick control of your rodent problem.
If you have average-sized rats and a need for less than 20 kills per set of batteries, get the Rat Zapper Classic electronic rat trap, equipped with a large chamber size. However, if you are dealing with larger rats, consider buying the Rat Zapper Ultra (sold separately), equipped with the largest chamber size available and is suited to kill more than 20 rats per set of batteries.
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 “AA” 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 “AA” 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.
Safe and Sanitary
The Rat Zapper Classic is safe 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.
I've used similar electronic traps with spotty results. I bought this one due to the glowing reviews. I had to learn the hard way about rats being SMART! Once I followed the directions TO THE LETTER (letting the rat have a "freebie") the trap has been 5 for 5. I know it's a little time consuming, but once you get the trap "seasoned" (having the rat scent inside) the rest of them line up for the big one way trip to rat heaven! GREAT product.

You DIRTY RAT!September 20, 2013
My sister-in-law has one of these traps & was completely satisfied with the results in catching rats & even mice at her farm house.
I called 3x for some info & Beth was there each time to help by answering my questions. Cheerful, pleasant sounding, alert with responses & very helpful. Her customer service was superb!
After getting the electric (blue) traps, I am VERY happy with the high quality of them for catching the nasty rats that have been demolishing wires & insulation under our house! We bought 3 traps & they DO work FAST!
Just be sure to read the directions for proper installation & use.
By the way, the "Rat Tale" is an absolute necessity if a trap is in a hard-to-reach place. Be sure to get one to go with your electric trap!
My husband & I HIGHLY recommend getting these traps. They do their job, effectively eliminating these destructive pests!
