State of the art 'smart' electronics device. A rat or mouse trying to take the bait reaches a point where it touches 2 plates and completes an electrical circuit, killing it in seconds. A light signals when the device has been activated so that the remains can be removed and the trap reset. 4 C-size batteries (not included) provide enough power for up to 12 kills. Warning light signals when batteries need replacing.

Customer Reviews for Procter Electronic Rat Killer
"In desperation i bought this trap today , just for some background info , we have had our little friend in the house for about 3 months , he ate the poison grains , avoided all the spring traps both old little nipper and more modern versions without ever springing one , ate smash powder potato like it was going out of fashion , must be deaf to two ultrasonic repellers in the cupboard and roof space he loves to visit , and failed to get caught by humain traps baited with allsorts from chocolate to cereals. Enough was enough , today he got this beauty , baited with the poisoned grain that he loves and within 30minutes of setting it up he was dead !! Sorry Mickey we gave you every chance to go of your own accord RIP"
"best money ever spent.easy to use no mess simply wait for the little blighters to enter and zap one dead rat just tip out and dispose,ready for the next one 100% effective caught 2 in 2 days this is a proffesional peice of kit verry satisfied."
"I had a different experience to the previous reviewer - the trap caught mice very efficiently and was very easy to empty and reset. I caught 10 mice within a few hours at one point (all using one set of batteries), and haven't seen any mice since."
"This novel way of despatching rodents is actually very clean and efficient. I doubted that it could work consistently from just four AA batteries but it does. We actually used it to dispose of a rare pest unique to the area similar to a squirrel but it killed them with no fuss and very quickly and humanely. It is perhaps an expensive and elaborate way to perform this function compared to a traditional mechanical trap but it is certainly up to the job."
"Effective way of catching & disposing of unwanted visitors. We found the best way to attract the furry ones is to bait the unit using fresh lard, they like that. The battery holder is not very good, you will have to force them into the holder, bending back the tabs helps. There is a coil in the unit, make sure you do not touch the plates after installing the batteries!"
"A bit expensive and replacing batteries regularly could get add to that but it works much better than standard 'snap' traps. Bought the rat trap as it will kill both rats & mice. Currently averaging one kill per day.
Make sure you check and reset (switch off/on) every day to make sure the little beasties get the benefit of the full shock."
"Don't waste your money on this it does not last, I kept setting it hear the click to says it set then 10 seconds later hear another click and find it reset. Mice kept eating bait and never getting zapped. A complete waste of money"
