It does the job!Aug 21, 2007
By R. Fu I have a rat problem in my attic. After searching around for solutions, this product appears to have the best solution to help with my rat problem. So far my Rat Zapper Ultra has caught 5 rats, and it is still going strong. I read some reviews complaining about battery life, I belive they are refering to the original Raz Zapper, not the Ultra version. The difference is that the Ultra version uses 'D' size batteries, which last much longer than the 'AA' used in the regular Rat Zapper. I have my rat zapper on for the last 3 month and the batteries are still ok. When it comes to catching rats, the fine details really matters. It is not easy to get them to take the bait. The bait that comes with the Rat Zapper didn't work at all. The rats don't care them at all. I had paced some of those bait outside the trap, and the rats won't even eat them. What I find works really well is peanut butter. What I do is use a glob of peanut butter about the size of a quater, and place it on a sheet of candy paper(I use the black circular paper from See's candy). The placement of the peanut butter should be skewed to one edge of the paper. Place the peanut butter bait inside the trap such that the peanut butter is just touching the metal grill at the end of the trap. That way, a rat can stick his paw in and get some sample of the peanut butter from outside of the cage. In addition, I smear a tiny amount of peanut butter on the outside of the metal grill to attract the rats, and gurantee that they can get a free sample. The rats just love peanut butter. When ever I have a catch, I notice that the peanut butter on the grill is alway licked clean by the rat, and they just can't resist going in to get the rest of the peanut butter once they have a good taste of the stuff. Another important procedure is to always wear disposable glove when handling the trap and bait material. Rats have really keen sense of smell. They tend to stay away from things with people smell. Wearing disposable gloves will help reduce the chance of transfering any scent to the bait and trap. The key feature of this product that sold me was the optional Rat Tale attachment. Since my trap is paced in the attic and I don't want to climb up to the attic daily to check on the trap, the Rat Tale is a great option to have. Rat Tale is a remote monitoring attachment to the Rat Zapper Ultra and it notifies me by flashing red light when ever there is a catch, so I only need to climb up to the attic when I see the Rat Tale flashing. One draw back of the Rat Tale is that is uses it's own internal battery for power and I'm sometimes worried that it might run out of power before I noice that there has been a catch. I really prefer to deal with the catch while it is fresh than to deal with smelly decomposed mess. The Rat tale is rated to run flashing alert for 20 days, so maybe it's not really an issue if you check on it on a regular basis. The Rat Zapper Ultra is a great mess free trap. Add the Rat Tale, it is truely convient when the trap needs to be place at inconvient locations. For total cost of $68 for both, it is turely worth it. There are other more expensive traps with true wireless remote monitoring ability out there, but they are very expensive. The Rat Zapper Ultra is the best solution for the lowest cost. I only wish I bought this earlier before I hade experimented with glue traps and snap traps. The glue traps and snap traps are messy and they don't work well at all.

Finally, a better mousetrap!Oct 30, 2006
By Eric Sammons My family moved into our current house five years ago, and our first autumn here we discovered that our house was a quite popular Fall Resort in the mouse world. :(
In those five years, we've tried a large number of ways to stop this yearly invasion:
- Traditional Traps
They simply didn't work. Either the mouse could eat the bait without triggering the trap, or it would catch the mouse without killing it - which was pretty disgusting. I did find one type of traditional trap that worked, but then it was discontinued.
- Glue Traps
These were basically worthless. Mice would drag them to a new location, but then free themselves without too much trouble.
This was a fun solution - I would go into my basement (where I work) and smell a week-dead mouse that I couldn't find.
- "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"
One year I simply didn't bother to try to catch them; I was too exhausted from previous attempts. I figured as long as they stayed hidden, I would ignore their existence. This option didn't go over too well with the wife.
After all this frustration, I figured I would try the Rat Zapper. All I can say is: IT WORKS! I caught 6 mice in the first 48 hours I had it set up, and disposing of the mice and resetting the trap was clean and easy. Best of all, I can use this trap for years to come; it no longer has to be a yearly experiment to see how I can catch our rodent visitors.

....bittersweet...'designed obsolecense/made in china'....Dec 31, 2009
By M. Strehl
After getting the same canned answer from 'Agrizap' support I have to put my .02 out here...
The product works great for perhaps the 1st year...then after the warranty is up (1 year)...it will start to lose it functionality in the form of 'false trips' as they stated, the light will blink but no one is home, bait still in tact etc... oooor free food, the bait will be gone and nothing is tripped.... *there is maintenance associated with this unit, as these critters are zapped they lose control of bodily functions - urine specifically - and that is detrimental to the unit/will bridge the contact/frame together causing it to malfunction, so you must clean/soak it very carefully...however after all of that joyful time is spent, both of my units still do not function as intended...
I have spent over $120 on 2 units/battery pack accessory...(not to mention batteries for this duration...another easy $50?) I will let you weigh the worth, however I've lost my patience with 'made in china' products breaking between 90 days - 1 year on the mark and emptying my wallet to replace them like it's part of the routine...companies needs to take accountability/ownership...otherwise please continue to write up honest reviews and let them feel it in their wallets...

Electifying!Oct 09, 2005
Finally a Zapper with more voltage! Now I can really sizzle those mice. I was previously getting rid of them with the regular Zapper that only uses 4 AA batteries; I really felt it wasn't enough. I had to modify my current Zapper MacGuyver-style to use the electrical outlet in addition to a high-voltage amplifier, outputing well over 120-volts of pure lightning. You can tell when you've gotten a mouse because you here a slight crackling sound like those Pop Pop Snaps fireworks you buy on the 4th of July. Also a bit of smoke if you get there quick enough. It's not uncommon to have the Zapper tip over on it's side due to the mouse getting thrown against the walls of the Zapper - those mice don't know what hit them. Science rules! *cackling*

The Ultimate Rat Killer!Mar 21, 2009
By Mises I live near a dairy so vermin come and go and sometimes stay. My first Rat Zapper Ultra worked great killing several rats in my attic. I left the Rat Zapper Ultra in my attic for several months and forgot all about it. I heard rats in my attic and remembered that I had left the Zapper up there. I checked the Rat Zapper, and the batteries were dead. I put fresh batteries in the zapper and it was not zapping. I looked inside the Rat Zapper and saw that rats had chewed up the inside ceiling of the Rat Zapper and wiring. The rats killed my first Rat Zapper! It was my fault for not checking on it and making sure the batteries were in good condition.
I bought two more Rat Zappers because they kill rats and this time I checked on them weekly. The zappers killed several rats (payback) and eliminated my rat problem in my attic for about a year. A few days ago, I heard rats again in my attic again it sounded like two rats because I could hear them chasing each other around. I was ready for rat war and loaded up my two Rat Zappers with fresh batteries and baited them with peanut butter. The rats would not take the peanut butter bait. I was very frustrated because peanut butter always worked in the past.
Two days passed and the rats were winning the war as they continued to defy my Rat Zappers. Then while cleaning my garage, I found rat droppings next to a bag of dry dog food I had stored in my garage. I saw that the bottom of it was chewed open and that was the reason the rats did not want the peanut butter because they were feasting on high quality dog food. I prepared for battle and bought a commercial grade heavy duty Brute plastic trash can and put the the bag of dry dog food inside it and sealed it shut. I then placed my two Rat Zappers in the garage where the dry dog food was stored and baited them with the same dry dog food. The Rat Zappers were locked and loaded and ready to give their death ray to any rat that entered. The next day, I saw my Rat Zappers red lights flashing each with a cute looking DEAD rat inside. I buried the zapped rats in my backyard next to a tree and they will serve as fertilizer. :-)
By the way, I have never followed the baiting instructions and maybe I am just lucky or have dumb rats. I just load the Rat Zappers with bait and turn them on. They have always killed rats usually on the first or second day. My advice is to identify the rat(s) food source and try to eliminate or contain it. Then place your Rat Zapper baited with the rats preferred food at that location. You have to monitor Rat Zapper weekly and keep it clean especially the inside. The Rat Zapper is expensive but it's the best rat killer I have ever owned.
