A lot of the problems and complaints that I’ve been hearing is that electronic rat traps don’t last long with batteries. Most electronic rat zappers require AA batteries and will die out after a few discharges, which is completely fine if you have rechargeable batteries.
But don’t you want to make sure your traps are indeed trapping instead of losing power? Well the Agri Zap RZUIR1 Electronic Rat Zapper Ultra has the solution. The Ultra requires 4 D size batteries which I heard will last for more than 3 months!
One of the things I hear is that the bait that comes with the trap doesn’t really work as well as other rat baits that you can make yourself.
One of the greatest features of the Agri Zap RZUIR1 Electronic Rat Zapper Ultra is the Rat Tale attachment, a remote monitoring attachment that lets you know when there’s a rat inside the trap. This is a great feature for those placing the traps in high places and not having to rebait the trap whenever they see a flashing red light. It’s sold separately but worth the extra $12 or so.
Is The Agri Zap Electric Rat Trap Worth The Cost?
Yes! Look, if you want a mess free way to kill a lot of rats with out having to worry about it not working because the battery ran out, this is the trap for you. Is this the trap for everyone? No. Here’s why. I can’t justify recommending an electronic rat trap to someone if they only have one rat they need to catch, a spring trap or humane trap would suffice. If you have a rat infestation, the electronic rat trap is the way to go. Plus, it’s not as messy as a spring trap and you won’t have to deal with the rat caught with a humane trap.
The new, larger Rat Zapper Ultra offers you more kills and longer stand by times. Perfect for larger rats (and mice too!), ongoing rodent infestations and commercial applications. Larger chamber than the Rat Zapper Classic. Bait with ordinary pet food. Mice and rats enter the chambert and are dispatched with a powerful jolt of electricity. If they’ll fit in the chamber, the Rat Zapper will dispatch them! No blood, no gore, no mess, and no poisons to endanger your pets or the environment. Flashing kill light tells you when you have a catch; simply tip the Rat Zapper and let the dead rodent slide out. Dimensions: Approximately 4″x4-3/4″x11-1/2″. Approximately 30 kills with one set of 4 alkaline “D” cell batteries (not included). Easy to use, and reusable. Not an ultrasonic device. Optional remote monitoring with the Rat Zapper Rat Tale.
